GoNintendo Review - Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice

SEGA is on a mission with Sonic fans. In a rather refreshing approach, SEGA came out and said that Sonic wasn't getting the attention he deserves when it comes to quality. They recognize that recent years have been rather lackluster, and they're out to turn things around. Obviously that kind of move is going to take time, but it's good to know that SEGA has recognized a problem and is out to correct it.

Many consider Sonic Mania to be the first title that shows SEGA's new plans for Sonic. It'll be the first game that really gives us a look at how SEGA plans to bring the blue blur back to his former popularity, all while bringing in some fans that may have lapsed. With that said, it's not entirely fair to say Sonic Mania is the first title to really try and right some wrongs. Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice went through a rather lengthy delay in order to make for a better experience. That delay was also followed by SEGA's admission of Sonic's quality taking a dip. When you put both together, you can see that Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice got a lot more love from SEGA than originally planned.

So how does the new title in the Sonic Boom franchise measure up? It's certainly not the best Sonic game in the franchise's long history, but it is without a doubt a step in the right direction.
