Sonic Boom Fire & Ice 

 

Love it or hate it, Sonic has been rebooted into Sonic Boom. I personally loved the Sonic X anime shows on DVD. I have not see enough of Sonic Boom to know if I will like it or not. The package of Sonic Boom Fire & Ice that Family Friendly Gaming was provided included a DVD with three episodes of the Sonic Boom television show. I found this very interesting. Hopefully it is a sign of entire seasons of Sonic Boom being released on DVD to retail.

Sonic Boom Fire & Ice is a 2D side scrolling action adventure platformer where we swap between characters. I should mention the characters need to be unlocked first. What is really cool is we can take unlocked characters back to previous levels to progress through more of the level. Sonic Boom Fire & Ice has different characters with a variety of different skills.

The most interesting game play mechanic in Sonic Boom Fire & Ice is the fire and ice. We come up to blocks of water in Sonic Boom Fire & Ice. We can have ice on, and as soon as we step on the water block it turns to ice. Fire will melt the ice blocks into water. This is interesting, but it has one flaw. It slows down the game play of Sonic Boom Fire & Ice. Sonic is all about speed. So having to stop and swap (via the touch screen, L button, or R button) slowed me down each and every time.

Three family members can enjoy Sonic Boom Fire & Ice on the Nintendo 3DS since it has three save slots. There is action adventure violence as we attack robotic creatures. The good news is there are little animals enslaved in the robotic enemies. So attacking them frees them from their bondage. That is something I can get behind the support. What about you?

Sonic Boom Fire & Ice breaks the fourth wall. In other words characters in Sonic Boom Fire & Ice are aware they are in a game, and part of merchandising. The voice acting in Sonic Boom Fire & Ice is pretty good. It is cool to see voice acting in a Nintendo 3DS game too. Be careful on the level complete screen in Sonic Boom Fire & Ice. Why? The A button is replay. Normally in other games the A button is continue on.

I liked the clips from the show in Sonic Boom Fire & Ice. I also liked the different kinds of levels. From the vehicles levels to the 2D side scrolling levels, to the Sonic Dash like levels. Boss fights in Sonic Boom Fire & Ice are a real treat. I wish Sonic Boom Fire & Ice explained how the characters got their powers. Sonic Boom Fire & Ice is a solid Sonic game for hand held gamers. I wish we had gotten this game before the Christmas Buying Guide went online. It can compete in next years.
