Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric hasn’t been met with the warmest responses from video game critics and Sonic fans. However, SEGA has announced that it’s planning a playable demo for Wii U owners which will be available to download on Thursday, December 4th in Europe and North America. So if you fancy giving it a try then you’ve got absolutely nothing to lose.
I was excited for this game at first, but not too much anymore. The 3D levels seemed fun but they’re too linear, and the change of character design is a bummer too. :(
Nothing to lose? What about my precious time that could be spent doing absolutely nothing else of importance?!
“a playable demo” I think they should stop there already xD
How about a playable game instead?
Can’t have everything we want can we? lol
contact ubisoft for the reply XD.
Gag. Sonic Boom is god awful, don’t waste your time.
I really wish Sega would show more respect to its flagship character.
Sanzaru Games have done a much better job making Shattered Crystal. Big Red Button (despite the firing, etc.) haven’t done a great job making Rise of Lyric.
Shattered Crystals is the same slow POS game like Rise of Lyric is.
Here’s proof of it: YOU DIE WHEN YOU TOUCH THE FUCKING WATER!
100% agree. Shattered Crystal isn’t 10/10 but it’s much better than Rise of Lyric.
i really wish that sonic become a nintendo character.
Both versions of this game are complete crap and not worth a single dime, ESPECIALLY the U version. Sega really has to make sure they don’t allow the release of any more rushed Sonic games. Why can’t they learn? Nintendo at least knows how to treat the main-line games of Mario with top tier quality. Meanwhile Sonic gets treated with bullshit like this. I didn’t mind Lost World much, but will there ever be an amazing Sonic game again? I really don’t think they’ll ever outdo Sonic 3 at this pace.
That actually was a pretty decent game to be honest.
SEGA should really partner with Nintendo to develop a Sonic game, even if it’s just one and when I say partner I mean with both of them taking part in the development process.
Or to let Nintendo themselves take the Sonic IP for a test drive and see if they can fix Sonic and maybe revolutionize it like they did with Mario 64 and Galaxy.
I’m honestly going to get it, just to see for myself just how awful it is.
Could they not release a patch that fixes the slow down and glitches and maybe add an equipable ability to run a little faster to where it’s not Sonic fast, but a noticeable speed change and maybe a few more abilities as an apology for how the game turned out? If they do that, then the game can be salvaged from it’s bad reputation…
This game made my balls itch several times
I can’t wait to confirm my suspicion that the game sucks.
Sanic fast chilli-dog maker mama confirmed for 2ds and next gen console.
Not even the demo can make me change my mind on buying this crap. The 3DS version demo proved it was fucking terrible so I won’t expect much for Rise of Lyric.
The art on this article has better graphics than the actual game
Sega just can’t get it right.
No no no no no
Way better game than destiny and watchdogs XD. Fact!
Destiny Metacritic- 76
Watch Dogs Metacritic- 80
Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric- 33
Comparing two decent games to one of the worst games ever made is a joke
