    Sonic Colors: Ultimate remasters the original 2010 release on the Wii, upping the graphics and offering more ways to enjoy the game. Despite some speed bumps, Sonic Colors: Ultimate is a worthwhile revisit to one of the series' greatest adventures, and stands heads and Tails above many other 3D Sonic games. This is Sonic done right, and having it modernized and on PC at last is a treat for fans and newcomers alike.

    One of the best games I played. PC version is OP

    I really don't understand why this game is relieving lots of hate. Some mother fuxkers like (gustav2001, JafarYellow, astanmorokhiya, Xinerus, Squieros, Knight678) just coming to Metacritic for giving negative scores. Go play this game u fuxkers, don't simply talk **** Then u ppl have the right to hate something. How much are u ppl getting paid for posting this negative scores huh??? Firstly take care of ur menstruation cycles, u ppl are simply barking for no reasons.

    Sonic Colours Ultimate can run at 144fps and looks great, it is a blast to boost through even when it focuses on blocky 2d platforming a lot of the time. Frame dips were non-existant for me although in my 30ish hours of gameplay i experienced 4 crashes, 2 during the egg shuttle mode on planet wisp, which was somewhat frustrating.

    The remaster adds customisation, in game achievements and rival rush mode. Rival rush is limited to 6 levels, 1 per planet, and are a nice challenge to beat metal sonic in a select time frame.
    Customisation for sonic is fantastic, changing his shoes, gloves, aura and boost, it's a lot of fun to find fun outfits and styles for your next bash at one of the 45 levels in the game.
    The achievements are for completionists, a nice addition since epic games doesn't have it's own achievement system. The sneaky gameplay addition here is perfectly timing a homing attack adds boost to sonic's boost metre, which can i say is a fantastic addition, giving more boost than ever before.

    Overall the remaster is definitely warranted, but the glitches on PC hurt those wanting to fully complete the game at this moment. The egg shuttle mode is prone to crashes here and there for some players and that is the only glaring issue at this current patch on PC. This being said the score would be a 9 if this crashing wasnt present so at the moment it is both a huge upgrade and potential downgrade from the original. But for me the difference is the customisation and the homing attack giving boost that gives this remaster the edge over playing the original Wii game at 1080p through dolphin.

They somehow had the stupid idea of replacing the pre-baked lighted which gave colors it's vibrant tones and dynamic with a useless real-time light which screwed all of the graphic design, and made it even worst by adding a background blur et some vfx bloom to hide it. The Rival Rush mode is a boring way of artificially extending the game, cosmetics are ugly and not enticing, and the new Wisp basically breaks the game enabling you to clip through a level instead of making a creating new mechanic and all of this without including the bugs they manage to have for a port...Go for the original Wii version (whatever you play it) to this crap...

PC port don't have graphic settings, optimization very non cool (Like on PS4 or Xbox), player don't have permission to turn off blur, or change music in settings. You can't select remix or original soundtrack, you can't turn off Tails Saves. Game physics was broken too. In original game on WII, Sonic much faster, and jumping higher. PC port have many crashings and errors Expand
