Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric on Wii U will be the first title on the console to utilise CryEngine. Sonic Boom will focus on the team uniting to fight Lyric, a giant snake-like creature from an ancient race. Serving as a prequel to the stories revealed in the TV series, Sonic Boom delivers a new Sonic experiences with collaborative gameplay at its core. Sonic and friends -- Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and the newest member of the team, Sticks -- will work together as they face their most powerful enemy yet: Lyric, a giant and monstrous snake-like creature from an ancient race. Together, they must prevent Lyric from powering his army of robots and carrying out his plan to destroy the world. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric delivers a completely new action-adventure gameplay experience for Sonic fans. The detailed levels and emphasis on each character's unique abilities give players more choice in exploration as they work as a team to stop the deadly snake-like ancient villain, Lyric, before he can power up his army. Players will be challenged by over-the-top speed runs, but the heart of the game is focused on intense combat and brand-new abilities including the Enerbeam. This energy-charged cord can be used by characters to navigate the world like never before. Swing or zip-line across gaps, grab and throw enemies, take away their shields in combat, and explore alternate paths filled with lush environments and landscapes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This game is a mess Gameplay is terrible with bad voice acting and graphics. The controls are not always responsive and sonic and his friends run so slow. This game is trash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonic Boom got hit by Bayonetta 2 In 2014 Sonic Boom came on the scene, but now Bayonetta 2 is dominating on Wii U. Also if you have Wii U Hyrule Warriors is a great experience!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sonic is back again Ok this game got some bad reviews but I don't know why. I haven't had any real problems with it yet. I like it. Yeah it is not the fast Sonic we all knew. He is a little bit slower at times. I like the change of pace. He will be fast and then it gets slow which makes this game fun. It's not just fast all the time. It does have some pretty good funny lines that adds comedy that I count as a plus. This is different then Lost World. So if want the old Sonic I would say Lost World or anything before that. If you want fast and slow for a change of pace. This is the one right here. Check it out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another Rushed Out Game From Sega This game sucks so much.I bought this game on launch day so I wasted $55 on this horrible excuse for a Sonic game. The game play is the most boring thing ever because Sonic is way too slow in the whole game. He is meant to go fast.The graphics are very choppy and it looks like it came from the 6th generation of video games.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disgusting The game overall is bad, it feels bad, it sounds bad, combat is pressing a button, puzzles are pressing a button, and the platforming is mediocre if gamestop would let me put a 0/10, then that would be what I would put. I will tell you 3 things that are more fun than this game, 1-Changing the time of a clock 2-Running out of toilet paper 3-Playing Sonic 06

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst Wii U Game. When I played a demo of this game, I was very disappointed. The gameplay is boring, the voice acting is terrible, and everything just seems unfinished. Need I say more?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be worse. What people are saying is that this game is bad. As a Sonic game, its terrible; As a typical platform/ puzzler, its alright. Sonic fans are outraged by this and I understand. Its not the high speed gameplay we all wanted. I enjoy Sonic a lot and I am fair with this game. To be honest, its not as bad as Sonic The Hedgehog (2006). It has cool gameplay elements and reminds me a lot of Crash Bandicoot. Don't play this game as a Sonic Fan, but as a casual gamer who enjoys platformers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm one of the few people who liked it. I liked it because of It's more open world, character development, and new gameplay that has got my attention. I think the main reason people hate this game is because of the speed, so just make it into a new character and the game will seem more appealing.
