WARNING: SPOILERS!!! IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THE BOOM GAMES OR WATCHED THE TV SHOW (EITHER ON YOUTUBE OR ON CARTOON NETWORK) YET, LEAVE NOW UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE CURIOUS ABOUT MY OPINION ABOUT SONIC BOOM.


Well it's November and both the games and the show were released in the US. Fans were either hyped for this spinoff or disappointed about this spinoff. As for me, I was curious as a Sonic fan on how they would handle this alternate version of the Sonic universe. The Wii U game was made as an Action/Adventure while the 3DS was made to be similar to the 2D Sonic games with both of them having puzzles to solve. And their TV show (which is possibly a sequel to the games according to Wikipedia) is a 3D animated show developed in France which was supposed to be a comedy and adventure show. So how are the Sonic Boom/Sonic Toon (if you're from Japan) games and show?

The Wii U version is... disappointing. Rise of Lyric wasn't too appealing with its gameplay being kinda generic, the graphics looking kinda dated and the dialogue being meh. The scenery is also kinda generic as I constantly see jungle, mountains, and robotic scenery. But a big problem it has are some of its bugs. I won't name all of them but one of the more notable ones is the infinite jump glitch which can make players finish the game in less than a hour! It's not very colorful IMO as the Sonic games are usually colorful. Music is alright though, especially when Richard Jacques is composing the soundtrack!

The 3DS version is... slightly better. Shattered Crystal plays similar to the classic games, having Sticks as a playable character and a few neat extras make the game slightly more enjoyable but there are some problems that it shares with Rise of Lyric.

The TV show is... pretty entertaining IMO. There are some moments that might get a laugh out of you and it looks better than the games themselves. Characters are also enjoyable: Sonic is still the cool and heroic dude, Tails is still a genius, Amy now sounds better and can be quite enjoyable (BTW the show features some SonAmy romance) and Knuckles is big and not very bright which annoys his fans since he's usually tough yet gullible but seeing how he's not the guardian of the Master Emerald here, he lacks some of the qualities that made fans love Knux I guess. Dr. Eggman is also funny at times (and he just steals the episode at times) along with the newest addition, Sticks the Jungle Badger. And she is also enjoyable. She's wild, gets into the action when she's around, she's crazy and hilarious. As I said, there are problems (one of them right now is that the show airs TOO EARLY on Cartoon Network! Come on, CN. This is more of a 8 or 9 o'clock show IMO.) but so far the TV show is alright.

So, do you guys like Boom so far? Do you think this series deserves a sequel and if it does, what would you do to improve it cuz I think we deserved a better spinoff game. And do you think this is the new Sonic '06 and this is probably worse than that game???

Do you like those Miis I made? It was a consolation to all the fans that wanted iDOLMASTER in Smash, including myself.

They're ok. Although, to be honest, I'm not really a fan of that series. But I did use that Iori Mii!
