Get it on Wii
The Ds version does not look so cool. The graphics are 2d a lot.
Sonic colors DS, okay, but really short.
Sonic rush on the DS is not as good as the Wii version,but it is really fun. so the gameplay is sonic rush style, which means side scrolling from the top screen to the lower screen. and this is a very fun game, I just wish it was like the wii version, but between the Wii version and the DS version, they are completely different games. so the story is exactly the same, and they did take some cutscenes from the wii version but only two. the rest of the cutscenes are like comic book style. now the gameplay, it's basicly exactly the same as sonic rush, but it has a better homing attack, but that's it. it is also extremely short, I beat this game in 3 hours. but it has some replay value such as time attack mode, and the speicial stages. but since these are two diffrent games, I would recomend getting both version, I recommend getting the wii version first since it is the superior version. but the DS version is more towards sonic advance and sonic rush fans, but if you want to play a good game that's like sonic rush, you could play sonic generations on 3DS, that was a simular incident, the ps3/360 version was the best, while the 3DS version was simular to this game. I hope that this doesent happen again with sonic lost world coming out this fall. anyway, back to this game, I recomend it if you want something to pass the time, but if you want a challange, get the wii version.
it is sonic rush but shorter.
this game is basicly sonic rush but just shorter. I beat it in 5 hours. and sonic just runs back and fourth and from screen to screen. the wii version is better because it is like the daytime levels of sonic unleashed. or sonic generations for the ps3 and xbox 360.
DS? Wii? Doesn't matter!
Sonic Colors is every bit as good on the DS as it was on the Wii. The storys cutscenes aren't there, but replaced by text chat. It's on the DS, so thats OK. The gameplay is better on the DS than Wii. The controls are more strict nd have more grip than the Wii. The Wii's controls aren't bad, but they are just a little slippery. The stages are fun to play, and have high speed sections, and spot on controls. The graphics I didn't find to appealing. The stages are completely 2D with no 3D whatsoever. the stages are nice looking, though. The character models are typical for the DS, and are pretty pixilated, but overall, the graphics are good. The music is just like the Wii version, except they are only slightly edited. The music is great and incredible. Some specific exclusives appear in the DS game but not the Wii. Some of the characters that appear are Chao and Cream the Rabbit. The game also has missions you do. (Not in the Wii version.) The game is worth a buy. You wont be dissapointed!
Super Fun Game!
Sonic Colors is one of the best games I have bought in a long time. It is your classic high speed sonic insanity with awesome new powers. the story is that eggman has tricked the helpless beings, wisps, into his capture. He plans to extract their power and use it for wahtever devious plan he has cooked up. Sonic promises to free the wisps so in turn they lend their powers to sonic. There are plenty of new powers like a fire ball, rocket, and a drill that are cleverly used in each act. there are lots of new machines and creative and interesting settings. Each act has hidden spots and shortcuts to make your time even better and the boss levels are appropriately challenging. The powers are incorporated into each act in new ways. The game is even better with catchy music and intutitive control. This game is perfect for anyone!
Sonic Colors DS is a good game
Sonic Colors for the DS looks great. Go to youtube and type in "Sonic Colors: Action DS #1" and you will find new gameplay videos of the DS up close. you can also watch upclose DS gameplay by going to the Sonic Colors Japaneese site. Don't watch the E3 videos on Sonic Colors DS because those are old and aren't up to date on gameplay. It's way better now.
One of the best
I have to say that this is byfar the greatest portable game ever. It has amazing graphics, kinda 2d 3dish, and it has an awesome story line. The wisp power can be used at the best times, and you can get chaos emeralds in the special stages. The bosses and missions are also entertaining. The wifi and multiplayer are outstanding. I pre-ordered it so I got the hat, which was also very nice (and warm!) BUY IT NOW
Reason to buy this game...
Just look at the hat...what more could you want from a video game?
Good, but short
I love sonic, and when I seen a video for this.. I though "hey, this looks fun" So i pre-ordered it. Started playing, and wow, it was different. All the different powers you can get like becoming fire, or the void.. The only problem was that getting the chaos emeralds was easy.. Not like in the older ones where it could take more than 3 tries. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, just short, not so many stages in the levels.. Only took me less than a week to beat it, and I have a job.. So if you like Sonic, and don't mind short games.. Go for it
We will have to wait and see,
To be honest it's the same thing as Sonic Unleashed, I will get it, but hopefully, this will have more of the 2nd tier characters, like Knuckles, Shadow, Rouge, Omega, etc. So as I was saying this is basicly Sonic Unleashed, with out all of dark gaia's minoins around, from what iv seen, and this has been confuseing me, you can only use 2 power ups, when there are 5 creatures? Oh, well our questions will be answered when the game comes out on 11/16/2010.
