    Sonic Colors is a fantastic game. Its greatest achievement is that one does not have to be a super-tolerant dyed-in-the-wool Sonic super fan to enjoy it or to forgive a laundry list of flaws.

    Sonic Colours is a worthy successor of the saga we have learned to love in the 90's. Quick and easy to master, the game brings a lot of fun and it's really enjoyable by all kind of players.

    After many years of average games, Sega finally gets back on the tracks with Sonic Colors: everything the fans were hoping for is here, packed with gorgeous graphics and solid new game mechanics.

    A long overdue return to form, with a focus on what made Sonic fun in the first place. He's always been fast, but it's good to finally see him speeding in the right direction.

    The latest game featuring Sonic is a mixed experience. It's the best Sonic-game since the 2D Sonic games and it's a fast, beautiful game with a lot of great levels that you can play many times over and over. But the controls can cause quite some problems and the multiplayer part isn't as good as it could have been.

    Sonic Colors feels like a step right back into the same crap this series has drowned in for the past decade. If I had to pick a color for this game, it would be brown, for very obvious reasons.

    Gameplay that fits with Sonic perfectly, great 3D and 2D action spread out to fit all fans, Colours (that's how we spell it in the UK) is the best 3D - no, best Sonic game since SA2 (apart from Unleashed and Generations) and restored faith in the Blue Blur's future after 06(kill it with fire), Shadow The Hedgehog(errr) and Heroes(meh). Keep it up SEGA!

As for the gameplay, the mix of 3D "race as fast as you can" boosting sections are well balanced with traditional, sophisticated 2D (2.5D) platforming. As for music...just wow....

    The Red Rings give the game huge replay value, unlocking new stages and a certain special something at the end....(no spoilers)

Sega definitely got the right formula with this one. I have very few complaints, and I'll go over the games details briefly.

    The graphics are very nice looking for a Wii game. At several points, specifically the opening level of the second world, I was almost blown away by all the bright lights and colors all around. The game doesn't have many lag or framerate issues either, so another major plus.

    The gameplay is very fun. Sonic has plenty of speed, and most stages can be speedran if skilled enough. The wisps are a gimmick, but pulled off remarkable well. Most bosses are relatively easy and repetitive which was a disappointment. The game takes roughly three hours to beat, but I spent almost ten collecting the chaos emeralds and unlocking Super Sonic.

    The music is stellar, per the norm for Sonic games. "Reach for the Stars" is a solid main theme, and when played as orchestra at the end was beautiful. The Aquarium Park theme was also wonderful, one of my favorites.

    The story is simple. It follows a clear and simplistic path. Children may enjoy the storyline, but adults may lose interest.

    In conclusion, this is a very good game and one of my favorite Sonic games. I would definitely recommend this game, and immensely enjoyed it.

    Sonic is back! But is that still saying much? Probably not. Sloppy level desing, sloppy gameplay, little replay value keep this game fromSonic is back! But is that still saying much? Probably not. Sloppy level desing, sloppy gameplay, little replay value keep this game from truly deserving a 10. In many instances you will find that Sonic "controls himself" which deprives you from a true challenging experience. This game definetely has its fair share of nice eye candy, but that doesn't cut it if you wan't to be engaged with intuitive gameplay. And if you take into consideration the price of this product. At around $50 this is definetly worth a rental at best. Expand
