Sonic Boom: Spinning-Off or Out of Control?

When Sonic Boom was announced in February, many Sonic fans were slightly taken aback. The character designs were jarringly different than anything the series had seen before, and the gameplay appeared quite different than any recent Sonic games. Developer Big Red Button has been quiet since then, but showed up at E3 this past week where Hardcore Gamer got a closer look at Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, the Wii U version of the game.

What the heck is Sega thinking with this? Why can't they stop ruining this series? Christ, Nintendo makes solid Mario after solid Mario and it feels like Sega is going out of their way to make Sonic terrible.

It looks terrible, they tried to wow everyone with it's fancy new graphics but I'm glad people are seeing through that

I get it though...people want a good Sonic game again. I do aswell but I can't lie about something

Not to mention the designs are horrible, obviously though that's just one problem the game has out of many

They really need to stop experimenting with Sonic.

The Ring System - Sonic and the Secret Rings
The Sword - Sonic and the Black Knight
Warehog - Sonic Unleashed
The Wisps - Sonic Colours
Episodes - Sonic 4
Mini Games - Mario and Sonic
Racing Hover Board Game - Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

I think Sonic Generations was the only decent one in recent years which didn't have a gimmick at all. I enjoyed the Classic Sonic levels so much.

Hey, Sonic Colors was really damned good, wisps or no.

The only ones defending this garbage are the enablers. Every time i see people give valid criticism of this game, the enablers are the first ones to react with the same argument, "Oh, you're just a sonic hater or you just have too much nostalgia" which neither of those aren't true.

I really enjoy those HD Sonic 4 games. There's rumors of a Sonic movie soon.

Since it's just a spin-off and not a part of the main canon, I'm willing to give it a shot.
I don't think it's one of those games that I can give a fair judgement to before having tried it.
