Sonic Boom announced (Wii U/3DS)

Recommended Posts

I like how this looks, but I'm sad that it's put Sonic back to linear level design. Well, then again, Big Red Button has some of Naughty Dog's old team, so this could have the fun kind of linearity that Crash Bandicoot had in the platforming sections.

 

Knuckles seems to play like the werehog.... Is that a development gag?

Eh... this game doesn't spark me thus far. Aside from Amy's new look, the rest of the game looks more "Crash Bandicoot-y" (if that makes sense) and it looks like it can't decide if it wants to focus on speed, platforming, combat etc. Basically, it looks too chaotic for me.

 

And dubstep hahahahaha nowaykthnxbye.

 

I'm still confused over whether or not this game IS a reboot of the series or if it's just a spinoff in it's own continuity though. Can anyone elaborate on this?

Wii U exclusivity for this title, suggests that the new set-up is being tested.

 

If they wanted this to be the "Big One", they'd have had Sonic Team's rumoured 2015 game be the Nintendo exclusive, and would have pumped this one out multiplatform, Skylander's style.

 

So far nothing to suggest this is the permanent direction

 

 

However, it serves only to further fracture the franchise, which is really annoying.

Such a huge lack of focus.....

Eh, looks like a revamp of Sonic Heroes and gameplay seems unfocused and all over the place. The models like others have said still look wonky and I'm still iffy on the designs. Also, again, leave out the sports tape, it's really unnecessary. Not to mention the dubstep is pretty awful and please don't let it become the majority of the soundtrack. 

 

The graphics look fine and detailed though. Yet it doesn't feel as colorful as its previous installments, taking a bit 'realistic'/muted environments we mostly see in generic FPS these days. But surprised that there isn't info on the cartoon at the moment and that we only have the game tie-in, which is the only thing I can look forward to as I don't have a Wii U yet and doesn't much interest me as well as it's a proceed with caution ordeal, that it is an AU kinda thing and not main series.

The lack of focus is concerning, I agree. Assuming this game does really well with critics and the fans, what will it mean? Will SLW's concepts not be followed up at all?

The only thing that really bugs me is the new designs... But this looks like an intriguing game. I'm glad we have a Western developer this time around. Maybe with a break, Sonic Team can finally get their shit together.

You know, it's funny, from what I've seen so far, if it weren't for Knuckles design, I'd be totally cool with this becoming the main thing.

 

Obviously I haven't seen much, so my opinion could still change.

 

Co-developed by Sanzaru (Sly 4) and Big Red Button Entertainment (former Naughty Dog developers).

I think it's more likely Sanzaru will be doing the 3DS version.
 

 

Uh

Chris Senn is involved in this apparently

And people thought Lost World was based on Extreme xP

 

Looks too confusing.


Biggest problem. There is no focus, and that's what is really needed in the gameplay.
 

 

Kind of hard to judge that since it cuts around so much.
