Admittedly, I didn't buy the game from this site, but I feel I must warn others out there before wasting your money on this game.

Ever since his debut into the 3D world, Sonic the Hedgehog has constantly had a hard time adapting to it. Sure, there are good ones like Sonic Generations and Sonic Adventure 2, but more less or not, Sonic 3D games have had numerous issues that make the games a chore to play and only kill the blue hedgehog more.

So with Sonic Boom coming out, fans everywhere were hoping it'd bring Sonic back to glory as it seemed to be a new universe and everything. Even with the new character designs(Which were kind of weird, but I grew to accept them), people wanted to see it, especially since the developing crew, Big Red Button, consisted of former Naughty Dog employees. MD made games like Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, and an Uncharted game. So with something like this, you'd expect a winning combination and a glorious Sonic game. What we get instead is another stain on Sonic and only ruins him more.

Rise of Lyric centers around our 4 heroes, Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, and Tails, as they accidentally wake up an ancient lizard named Lyric, who hates the environment because. . . reasons, I guess. Through a bit of exposition, the gang have to gather the Chaos. . . I mean, some power crystals to seal Lyric again. And that's as much story as you'll get. From there, you just go from one level to another doing the same thing over and over again until you beat the game.

Now Sonic games aren't played for story alone, but if this is a new universe, this would be a good time to develop and flesh out the characters. We never know why Shadow is in the game, only to serve as a minor boss and that's it. What's the deal with Eggman?

I like the direction they tried to go in. I don't think every Sonic game has to be high-speed running through loops and all that. I have no problem when developers want to test a franchise in a different style of gameplay--and to be really honest, I like the Metroidvania-esque puzzle solving aspect more than I actually ever liked any Sonic game, but with that said, this game just falls short of that aspect it was aiming for.

The game has extremely cheesy voiceovers that repeat over and over and over. The game feels like it was designed this for young children with learning disabilities...( I don't wish that to offend anyone, but that is exactly how it feels to play this game). Difficulty is almost nonexistent. Fighting is monotonous and tedious.

The game is so unfinished too. You can see it right away when you load the disc up and the splash screen while it reads the disc is just the four character models on a black background... What? They couldn't even just put the box art there? The game box totes Wii U Pro controller compatibility, but that is only for multiplayer. Cannot use anything but the Wii U gamepad for singleplayer and the Gamepad serves NO purpose. The game's screen is simply duplicated onto the Gamepad screen for the entirety of gameplay. It makes no use of touch or motion controls. You cannot turn off the Gamepad screen either. So you're forced to use the Gamepad and have the battery drain extremely fast for no reason.

Gameplay tends to stutter momentarily at many different times. There's more things I could point out, but I really am just apathetic towards spending the time to do so. That is how unfinished this game feels. I cannot say it enough.

Don't spend more than 20 dollars on this game.
Sonic may be on the cover, but expect to spend 90% of the game at a walking pace.
Frame rate is constantly below 30 (Ruins ALL running stages)
Textures low quality, characters are constantly talking and stating the obvious, terrible plot, fighting scenes are repetitive, game is overall boring.
As a huge sonic fan, I'm telling you: DON'T BUY THIS GAME

If you want the sad truth about the game, here's a pin-point review:

this game is a whole glitched game. like when i was playing the water level the boat from the level went under and i was surprised. this game is not even cool this game frezzed on me and this was in three years of develoment yeah so either if your a hardcore sonic fan don't pick it up. it needs work. so if you never played a sonic game don't let this one be your first and the graphics look like a ps2 game in the develoment stages. so buy at your own risk.

This game gets one star from me on the functionality of the game. Sonic and friends are slowest I have ever seen them. Even the (previously) worst sonic game Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) remembered that sonic can run faster than a average jogger and Sonic are supposed to have high speed platforming. The combat is bland with very few options to take down enemies compared to other titles on the Wii U (Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta, and so many more). Sonic and friends also are at the most annoying I have seen them. They comment on everything and it will get on my nerves, but this problem can be fixed by muting the T.V. and playing music from previous sonic games as you play instead. The story is nothing special or unique it is very basic: Lyric is released and it is Sonic's job to seal him again. When it comes to glitches I give this game a 5 star ranking. I always find new glitches that make me laugh hysterically. I have found that this game has more glitches than the previously mentioned Sonic the Hedgehog and there were so many in that game and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric still tops it. I do not know what went wrong during the development of this game with Big Red Button, but now Sega and Sonic Team have their work cut out for them to try to give Sonic fans confidence in upcoming Sonic games.
