It is, but I still don't see why everyone shits on it so much. I thought Sonic Boom was a fantastic example of what the scene was capable of. The boss fights were technically impressive and hard as balls, and the level design and array of new moves and abilities made it feel completely unlike the cavalcade of cookie-cutter palette swaps and Green Hill mods that most people were doing. It sucks that it's been so long since the last public release, but in some ways, it's still unmatched by any ROM hack before or since. Edit: Wait, Sonic Boom is an officially-released current-gen game?
