    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.

    It's a mixture of 3D awesomeness and 2D action adding some catchy music and a difficulty that really challenges your stuff. Buying this game would be the right choice for any Sonic fan. Expand

    Graphics are amazing, as is the music. It's the most fun I've had in years..no, scratch that, most fun ever! While short, it has enough challenges at the end and replay value to remain fresh for a long time. Expand

    This the best sonic game from the past 20 years or so. And incase you didn't know, the blue hedgehog has been over many bad games over the years but this one is so good that it even surpasses the originals. I highly recommend this to any sonic fan out there! Expand

    sonic colours is an almost perfect sonic game, the second best out of all of them, it has really fun and unique game-play, an awesome sound track, a lot of things to do, a good storyline, all these things are awesome...but there's a not too great coop mode and not amazing presentation. Expand

    If you haven't played this yet, what are you waiting for? Visually impressive, neat soundtrack, very colorful, and the most important thing: fun, very fun. Good level design, but controls could be improved a bit. Definitely a good comeback for Sonic, that was just now topped by Generations. Expand

    Sonic 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
