Sonic Colors Review

 

2010 has been the year of Sonic, but that doesn't mean it's a good year.

Annoying Platforming – Platforming in any game should be simple yet challenging enough to figure out in a minute. The platforming in Sonic Colors turns from easy to hard within the level so fast that cheap deaths occur.

The world was simpler in the early 90s, when Sega had a console, and Sonic games were released with numbers letting players know there was a progression. Then the Dreamcast came along, and Sonic Adventure happened, which took the gameplay and cut it...

A return to speed for the franchise ; New Wisp power-ups are fun

Some of the Wii controls don't always work as directed

Co-op is present, but poorly implemented, which is one of Sonic Color’s biggest drawbacks. It says it is a two-player game, but that’s a technicality, really. Fortunately, my kids would take turns playing through a level, swapping the controls back and...

Sonic Colors on Revolution

 

Getting Along with Aliens

After the original trilogy on Genesis, Sega's famous mascot has grown stale to embarrassing levels with goofy gameplay gimmicks, ridiculous story arcs, and a worthless cast of characters

Gamertell Review: Sonic Colors for Wii

 

Sonic Colors is pretty good. If you're going to take a 2D premise and convert it to 3D, this is likely the way to do it. In fact, the approach seems familiar. When originally released, Sonic the Hedgehog was a faster version of Super Mario...

Great action, vibrant graphics, creative levels, wisps greatly enhance the gameplay

Certain parts are needlessly difficult, Sonic himself is still amazingly annoying

The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise hasn't exactly had a great track record since the jump to 3D. While the Sonic Adventure series was decent, every other follow-up has been a complete wreck, culminating with the Werehog fiasco of Sonic Unleashed. So it...

Sonic Colors represents a Sonic Team finally confident in their design document. It achieves a balance between adhering to series norms and then weighing those tropes against generation-sensitive context before ultimately adding a unique brand to the...

It?s taken them the better part of a decade, but it seems like Sega is finally listening to fans. Not only has Sonic returned to the 2D platforming scene in Sonic 4, but Sega has decided to release a game that takes everything that was good about Sonic...

Colors is a definite improvement on Sonic Unleashed. By no means is Colors the 3D Sonic you've been waiting for, but if you can get through all the frustration, there is a lot of fun to be had in this package.

Sonic Colors (DS) Review

 

Sonic's third adventure on the DS stands well on its own and manages to surpass the Wii version in a few ways.

Like Sonic Team, Dimps played it smart by having Sonic Colors be solely about Sonic the Hedgehog. Gone are the tricks and bottomless pits from the Sonic Rush series, letting players just focus on Sonic's speed and platforming. Surprisingly, not only is...

Sonic Colors is the best console Sonic title in many years. Sonic Team got all the right ideas this time, and only some relics of the past come back to haunt this experience from rivaling Mario once more. Recommended for all Sonic fans, though it's...

Sonic Colors Review

 

Sonic Colours offers a mix of 3D action and classic Sonic side-scrolling with dazzling visuals and exhilarating platforming.

Creative, varied level design ; Striking visuals ; Fast, exhilarating platforming

Repetitive boss fights ; Weak co-op

You might finish all the levels (there are seven for each of the six main zones) in about 10 hours, but you're encouraged to improve your score and rank in each by collecting more rings, stars, and wisps, as well as improving your time and seeking out...
