Ken McKown writes: Oh Sonic, we seem to have this conversation annually at this point. Every time I try not to get excited about a new game featuring the prolific hedgehog, and each time I regret once again giving him the benefit of the doubt. Sonic, you need to stop playing with my emotions. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is quite possibly the worst entry in the series since the fabled Sonic 06. This is not a good game, in fact it might be the worst Sonic game I have played in a long time, and that is saying a lot.
