    Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice



    Trailer:



    Highlights:
    • Nintendo 3DS exclusive
    • Late 2015 release
    • Same developer as Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal
    • New villain: D-Fekt
    • Geared more towards speed and platforming rather than labyrinth-styled stages

    I didn't see this coming, at all.

    Honest opinion: the fact that it's the same dev team is the worst part.

    ...Why in the hell did they continue this after the sarcasm it ended up into with the first releases?!
    All I hope is that it's gonna get recieved in a better way than the first games did.

    So they feel like they can continue this shit and hopefully not do the same crap they did in the original game(this is probably going to be worse than the first)

    Yea, but my theory with the first instalment (including Shattered Chrystal) they purposely made it bad. All first games are bad. I guess... Also I like ANY Types of games. Including bad ones to be honest... Also I have lots of hype for this game.

    Remember, there's multiple, separate development teams hired by SEGA.

    Sonic Boom is just a spin-off of the main Sonic franchise made by developers in America. Sonic Team is likely over in Japan making something else totally unrelated.

    Some info came out:

    The soundtrack is being composed by someone you're probably familiar with - Richard Jacques! The music in our announcement trailer was done by Hyper Potions, who happen to be fellow Sonic fans.

    Within the levels, you'll find elemental blocks and interactable components that you can adjust depending on which of the elemental powers you have on. As you can see in the trailer, you can melt ice blocks with fire, or freeze water blocks with ice, etc. It's all pretty simple early-on, and gets more complex as you progress

    You need to Shhh... And learn how to read because I never said I didn't play the game so please watch yourself!

    As for the game, I just don't see anything different aside from the ice and fire crap, I did notice how the graphics have improved over the first game(mostly the characters rubber looking models) and then the fact that Amy is now playable but its not going to be the reason why I should buy this game, but after all this game is mostly aimed at kids(or at least that's what I'm going with)

    This seems more aimed at the new Sonic fans, it looks kind of nice but I can't see myself buying.
    It just looks the same as its prequel (3DS), hence I'm not very interested in playing it. However I would still try the demo.

    Same here it just looks like the original where all you do is homing attack then run for like 5 seconds before running into a bunch of springs and the cycle starts over again....for all its worth I hope the developers take all those reviews to heart and try to fix everything that sucked in the first game.
