Wow.. The Metascore will actually be even lower than I thought.


The real sites will save it. Ign, gamespot, Eurogamer, etc


No they won't. If you're expecting anything above a 50 you're out of your mind.

I was responsible for a Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric review for The Game Fanatics that's being editted at the moment. Beat the game in a day without the Knuckles exploit. If not for the stupid level of ease in that game, the bugs and glitches would make it impossible to complete. There are sectionas where the lag will cause you to eat several obstacles in a row that would kill you in pretty much any other Sonic game. On top of that, it crashed my Wii U twice.

The concept had promise, but they kneecapped it to get it out in time to ride the hype for the amazing cartoon premiere. It is a broken, incomplete mess that shouldn't have been released in this state, period.



That 10/10 Review from a guy named Mudkipz9001 smells like 4chan. Clearly some guy from /v/



A Sonic game with glitches up the ass that was rushed... hum, where did I see that before...?
Is this an 8-year celebration of Sonic 06?

Those 10/10 user reviews lol... always make me chuckle for some reason.


Yeah it's such a common thing to do now, create a bunch of new accounts on meta to give your game a good score but like 1 click on the name of the account shows that they have just been made and normally just rate the one game on every platform it's available on.

Does anyone look at those user reviews which have very technical terms about a game that a normal user wouldn't bother with and then give it a score a perfect score when everyone else is at the 50% mark and think they are legit.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Maybe they thought it was the 10 year anniversary but fucked that up too?

It's too bad. Maybe if they can sell 100,000 copies they can spend some time putting in patches.

Sega just can't make decent games anymore. What's up with that? Sonic just fails all the time! Generations was almost a Sonic savior but then more crap came down the chute. I can honestly say that I hate post Yuji Naka Sega. It's like they don't know what fans want or something. I understand that we cannot tell any company what to do but if you have an overwhelming number of fans that want something like a Sonic Adventure 3 or Sonic 1-3 HD 2.5 Remakes and you ignore it for Sonic Boom, you need help. The cartoon needs help too. Sega, I want to love you but you're making it so hard for me to do so. Sonic has so much potential and they aren't showing any of it right now. Hopefully, the Japanese devs take over the whole thing this time.It's like Sonic 32X all over again.



Looks like it's time for a Sonic 3 w/ Sonic and Knuckles style game. New worlds, no new Characters... Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. That's it. Sonic 4 looked like Sonics 1&2 in HD... Nothing new, just a rehash. Just go 2D with new places to see. Not a hard formula.
