Taking the best elements of Sonic Unleashed and of recent outings like Sonic 4, this game is all about speed, with Sonic taking advantage of the power of the alien wisps to traverse beautiful alien landscapes in a frantic platforming adventure.
The alien powers come in different colors, each one granting Sonic a useful ability. Most of them, with a few exceptions, are fun and keep the game fast and furious, as it should be.
The farther into the game you get, the more of these alien powers you earn. These can be used in previous levels, creating a fantastic replay value, allowing you to traverse levels in a number of different ways.
Sonic doesn't dissapoint this time, this game is pure fun. Aside from a startling number of cheap deaths and strange physics, this game is a solid effort by Sonic Team. Despite it's kiddy premise and storyline, there is much more to this game than meets the eye, and a more difficult, hardcore game can be found beneath the surface. Beautiful graphics and clever gameplay keep this game a step ahead of the previous Sonic disasters.
Sonic Colors is a fantastic game and is extremley inventive and colorul. I commend Sonic Team's efforts, this Sonic isn't as slow as the others, and I give it only my full reccomendation!
Sonic Colors has superb controls awesome levels excellent music ('cept Asteroid Coaster) stunning graphics (for Wii) but the story is silly and the voices are off but there is SUPER SONIC in the MAIN LEVELS!!!!
All right, I'll now decipher the above sentence. First of all, this game proves that Sonic the Hedgehog games still can appeal to a wide audience of gamers. I mean, the professional critics are running out of stuff to pick at! Myself, I am an enormous fan of Sonic, and have played nearly every game he has ever starred in, own and have read nearly all his hundreds of comic books, and watched almost every TV show of his. Obsessive? Maybe, but come on, he's "Way past cool"! (Comics fans will know where that came from) Now, I'm in a strange position, however, because faced with the game that so nearly reaches perfection, if find myself unable to give it five stars, even though it has far fewer flaws than Sonic Unleashed(which I rate a five). But let's get on to the game itself, and compare its many aspects.
+ Controls? Spot-on accurate. Sonic moves when you move the joystick, he jumps when you press A. There's no twitchiness, no lag, no headaches. The camera is fixed, but it's fixed in the proper location for each shot. This game also has a complement of several power-ups. They come in the form of aliens endowed with "Color Powers". One transforms Sonic into a drill, another into a laser, and so on. They make the game have immense replayability, as many areas are unreachable until certain power-ups are unlocked later on in the game.
+ Level design? Beautiful, fast, challenging, and yet intuitive.Read more ›
And the opening video (an unlockable [it's the trailer video shown at E3]) looks SO GOOD on the DS. I'm VERY impressed at the video quality they put on that tiny screen. But so far, that's the only video like it on this version.
For those who are skeptical about Sonic, give this game a chance. This may be what we've been looking for since the "Advance" series.
Sonic Colors, surprisingly, gets everything right. As I played through the game, I couldn't help but anticipate something wrong to happen...it was just too good to be true. This time, they throw in some aspects new to the series, in the form of small aliens called Wisps that give you different powers. These are a fun addition to the series, and allows for much more creative level design without slowing down the Sonic speed that we play the games for.
The story is mostly standard, cutesy Sonic fare, with the welcomed addition of some honest, self-aware humor from Sonic Team. The graphics are some of the best on the Wii, in both character and level design. Like the name says, the colors and lighting are gorgeous on this game. Even the sound is good...the voice acting is actually pretty decent!
The biggest plus is the gameplay, which unsurprisingly, plays a bit like a faster Super Mario Bros game. The controls are tight, and the level design is nearly perfect. Sonic still moves fast, and this time it's actually fun to control. There's about 12 hours of gameplay through the story, and a lot of incentive to keep playing to find the challenging red rings in the levels. The game suddenly hits you with a big difficulty curve. I had quite a few moments of frustration that nearly killed the entire game for me. We're talking serious wanna-chuck-the-controller-into-expensive-television moments.
Pros: Great graphics, level design, and gameplay.
Cons: Steep difficulty curve, some menus look very thrown-together.
In conclusion, this is a great game I'd recommend to new gamers, and experienced veterans alike. It's the first Sonic game of the last three years I can honestly tell fans of the series to go pick up.
