On January 15th, SEGA revealed that a patch for Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric will be released to remove tons of glitches, fixed lighting issues in the cutscenes, etc. However, some problems were still present in the game even after the patch. Some people think that the glitches were what made the game fun, some fans were even more upset.
- The main reason people reacted negatively to Rise of Lyric is because of it's inconsistent frame rate during speed sections, bland gameplay, and glitches.
- Shattered Crystals and Fire and Ice is liked slightly more than Rise of Lyric, but many people still think they're mediocre games.
