    Sonic Colors: Ultimate is exactly what it claims to be, an Ultimate version of an already decent Sonic title. Many gamers dismissed it the first time, but if you are a Sonic fan, you owe it to yourself to check this one out. Blind Squirrel Games did an excellent job, changing what needed to be changed and leaving what worked originally intact. Super fun, challenging, and reasonably priced (even for the deluxe edition), this is a perfect title to celebrate Sonic The Hedgehog’s 30th anniversary.

    It might sound hyperbolic because Colors is one of the better ones to trot out, but I hope this ensures that Sega stops trying to hide its Sonic history.

    Sonic Colors largely holds up well, and Ultimate is a great way to return or introduce yourself to what is arguably the best designed 3D Sonic game so far.

    Sometimes Sonic can end in products only suitable for its core followers, but Colours: Ultimate is a game easy to recommend to almost any platformer fan.

    Sonic Colors Ultimate is the best way to enjoy the 2010 classic and remains one of the best modern Sonic games.

    Sonic Colors: Ultimate is a safe remaster of a cult classic which should please old players and newcomers alike, but isn’t going to redeem the iconic hedgehog’s troubled record.
  7. 50
    Sonic Colours Ultimate serves as a sad reminder that even the 3D Sonic games that are ‘one of the good ones’ don’t hold up very well. The updated visuals, soundtrack, and gameplay tweaks at least make it a better experience than the original, and some quality of life upgrades make the worst parts marginally less painful. Sonic fans nostalgic for this game will likely still value having this remaster in their collection, but the new customisable options and Rival Rush Mode are simply not enough to make up for what Sonic Colours lacks. It’s hardly what we were hoping to get from Sonic’s 30th anniversary.

    Thanks to the recent Patch along with its upcoming patches, I feel like it’s safe to say that Colors Ultimate is now a great Remaster.

    I don't even want to do my trophy hunting duties with this one and I usually do especially for Sonic Titles. That's aside from the fact thisI don't even want to do my trophy hunting duties with this one and I usually do especially for Sonic Titles. That's aside from the fact this was a horrible port initially (it's fine now). Colours is the overrated game in the 3D boost gameplay era of titles. I'm guessing after the nintendo titles the wii got for sonic, this was a great quality jump making people feel it was better than it is.

    But one thing I'll praise is great music like sonic always has

    A fun Adventure but properly nothing that will stick with you, I think my biggest problem was Story because it's kind of Saturday cartoonA fun Adventure but properly nothing that will stick with you, I think my biggest problem was Story because it's kind of Saturday cartoon instead of the dark weird stories they have in forces and Adventure , and I didn't really care for d2 sections of the game which is bad because it half of the game I didn't care about. I would say it's worth a try to see if this sticks with you it's not bad it's not great ,just fine P,S The music was amazing Expand

    Visual is fine, however, too many glitches , no save data, and lack of dynamic.

    Compared to Sonic Unleashed, I rather make it better

    Compared to Sonic Unleashed, I rather make it better difficulty to slow it down rather than camera quick.

    Poorly optimised version with tons of glitches, bugs and freezing issues. Avoid at all costs!
