I managed to get my hands on the Halo 5: Guardians Beta through an invite from 343. I have been playing Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the past week or so, and I wanted to go into this beta with a firm grasp on the previous games to see exactly where the changes have been made. My impressions after the first hour are that Halo 5 is one big mixture of different halo games. Bring in a lot of Halo 4, combine it with a little dash of Halo 2 map design, and then add a few new things like Aim down Sights, and you have Halo 5 in a nut shell.
The movement feels very familiar to Halo 4. The speed and overall feel seems to build off of what that game tried to do, which was speed up the Halo game play and bring it into the modern era of shooters. The issue a lot of people had with Halo 4 was that it was almost too modern, and it started to feel more like another shooter than a Halo title.
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is a jumbled mess of bad writing and technical issues that hold back a decent platformer for the Wii U.
Last year, Sonic got his first new style of adventure on the Wii U in the form of Sonic: Lost World. The new direction seemed to create a divide among the fans of the series. Some liked the new spin on the style of game play, while others simply didn’t want a Sonic title unless it involved him running full speed ahead. This year, Sonic fans are getting yet another new take on Sonic in the form of a spin off game based on the Television series Sonic Boom. This spin off looks to create a new version of Sonic and his friends, and reintroduce him to a younger audience with simple game play and basic puzzle solving to make a game that is easy to pick up and play. The problem is Sonic Boom is a mess is almost every aspect a game can be.
Sonic Boom has issues from the moment you start the game. Before you even have really any idea what you are getting yourself into, players are thrown into a speed based section that is filled with a number of technical issues. The frame rate is all over the place, the characters are popping in and out of frame, and the controls feel sluggish and unresponsive. Sadly, this is pretty close to a full representation of what to expect from the rest of the game.
