Oh, poor Sonic. A Sonic Boom jumping glitch has been discovered, letting Knuckles bypass large chunks of the game by jumping infinitely many times.
This Game is approaching Sonic 06 levels of bad.
I really don't understand sega. They had a good thing going with Sonic Generations. I mean, it wasn't perfect but it was a good first step. And then they have to go and do this.
It's because it was developed by Big Red Button Entertainment who has very different ideas regarding a Sonic game apparently.
Sega is no longer trying to innovate with the Sonic franchise. It's simply a case of using decades old business strategies such as focus groups and low-risk high-reward budgets. This result is this. It'll get the sales from kids. It has all the marketing perks to attract parents looking to buy games for their children. This isn't supposed to appeal to the core gamer at all.
That would be impressive in all the wrong ways.
it already did before launch but at least it wasn't Sonic Team again.
It's worse than 06, at least that was a multiplatform game! At least 06 was trying to base itself on one of the more successful Sonic games (Sonic adventure) this seems to be basing itself on Sonic Heroes (which was indeed a good game, but also a hit or miss game) I honestly don't get why they don't just make it exactly like Sonic unleashed....without the werehog...or like Sonic Generations and continue either exapnding on old levels or creating the ones we havent' seen.
Sonic colours is the best sonic game i have played since sonic adventure 1 on dreamcast. i dont know why sega keep trying to reinvent sonic when they have a winning formula in the original megadrive games. sonic colours didnt stray to far from that formula which is why it works. its just a sonic game. sonic boom, however... looks atrocious.
I'm eager to see the reviews for this game
I feel really bad for anyone buying this game without knowing about the issues...
THIS GAME IS NOT DONE. WHY SEGA WHY.
I see the money Nintendo paid for this game was well spent.... Very disappointed. I know this is a spin off but wtf is this?
Did nintendo pay anything for this lol?? If they did, jeeeeesus.
no they have no input. Sonic Lost Worlds did though.
Yes. This was part of the exclusive 3 Sonic games Nintendo paid Sega for.
Yes, they did. Nintendo paid to SEGA for three Sonic games in the platform. This one was in the deal. Nice, isn't it?
That's ridiculous. All three of the sonic games sucked. I mean Lost World was just mediocre but what a horrible investment. To date Lost World and M&S have sold barely anything. If they were going to partner with Sega they should've had one sonic game and the other two could be something like Phantasy Star or Jet Grind Radio or Shenmue which people have been clamoring for. That would've been huge in fact, and probably would sell better than mediocre Sonic game number umpteen.
This IS worse than Sonic '06... even edging out a certain "romance" in WTF'ery.
Hyperbole. This game is really bad, but I don't think it comes anywhere close to that game's terrible story or voice acting.

If you don't want to make a decent game, don't make it at all Sega. Just putting out garbage to make easy cash.
Easy cash? Did you see the sales for Lost World?
NEVER! Skip Leg Day.
Games should never have such glitches but i gotta ask, why do people make a bigger deal out of glitches in Sonic games then they do in other games ? I have seen silly glitches like this in many games over the years but they don't get half the attention as glitches in Sonic games.
this is where i rejoice cuz game will drop in price fast due to people selling it cuz it that awful with all bugs. i got drive club for 25 bux week after release due to this reason alone boy it was worth every penny now waiting game begins till servers stability of game is patched it sits in case nestled for sweet price tag of 25 usd including shipping off ebay
Well there is that. I expect the price of this game to drop like a stone in no time. It might even get patched by then too.
Let's hope Sanzaru has done a better job with the 3DS version.
