A full 3D sonic game? Yea not really.......
This is what I call a true 3D sonic game......sort of. First off this game looks fantastic compared to Wii version of sonic unleashed and really shows what the Wii is capable of. But even if this is a amazing sonic game it still has it's down sides. Well for starters the controls are kind of stiff.....you know sort of like the original Castlevania kind of stiff. But the controls aren't as bad as Castlevania but close. Another let down is it's 3D sections. in sonic colors most of the 3D sections are found at the beginning of the game and later in the game become nonexistent. Most of sonic colors is from a 2D perspective rather then it's claimed 3D perspective, so that was a let down. Over all the game is amazing from the really simple story to it's great sound track, sonic colors is a great sonic game.
A good showcase of a modern sonic
personally the past few modern sonic games today did not hold up to expectations (sonic and the blacknight, unleashed, secret rings) but this game is sega's first true example of how well sonic can due in it's modern form. the modern sonic which incorporates a 2D platformer with 3D graphics and and a homing system is truely astounding and colors showcases's it amazingly with it's own twist. adding the whisp's to give sonic powers to continue through the level is astounding and interesting to play. it add's to the gameplay in a very positive way. I haven't even talked about the presentation yet. the visuals are so slick you'll forget your even playing on a wii and the in game music is astounding it will leave a memorable tone in your mind as it did mine. Overall it is a great game that shouldn't be missed out.
this game is one of the best sonic 3D games ever.
I love this game. and the zones are very good, all of the names of them are, tropical resort (a casino-like resort) this is the first level of the adventure and it is fairly easy. starlight carnival (a fleet of starships) this level is very fun and can be chalanging. sweet mountain (an entire planet made out of sweets), this level has to be one of the best levels in the game. planet wisp (a forest being turned into a factory) this zone is were things can get very trickey and somewhat frustrating, you might not complete it one the first try like the first 3 levels, but keep playing you will get the hang of it. aquariam park (a gaint aquariam that looks like tokyo) this level is my personal favrote and the music is so catchy that you might find yourself humming it a lot of times. asteroid coaster (a gaint roller coaster) it is very hard like planet wisp. this one took me 3 days to get through, and the boss of this zone is the hardest boss in a 3D sonic game since biolizard (from sonic adventure 2.) finaly they give us some chalange. and the final boss is so easy that it's funny. and the cutscenes are like something out of a dreamworks movie. the jokes are great, and if you listin cloasly durring the stages you can hear eggman on a PA microphone saying funny things in the backround. and finaly the best part, THE THEME SONG OF THE GAME, reach for the stars is the theam song of the game and it is amazing. to prove it i am posting the entire song here. enjoy.
An overrated, mediocre, and unoriginal platformer
I already wrote arevewfor this game on a different page, so let me get to the point. Yes, this game is overrated by fans. It is a mediocre, and unoriginal platformer. Yes, I have evidence, it draws many ideas/concepts from Super Mario Galaxy, if it's not already obvious. Search "Sonic Colors aims to please Mario fans" in the Yahoo! search bar to find the developer's interview.
Now, the game fails to impress in all areas. Gameplay, the level design is sloppy at times, filled with bottomless pits, this is what you call CHEAP difficulty. Sonic's jumping physics are almost as bad as in Sonic the Hedgehog 4. Making precision based platforming harder than it should be. The boss battles are repetitive, require very little skill to beat. There is little replay value, it overall lacks the polished experience of other platformers for the Wii.
Unless you are a covered-in-whool fanboy, do yourself a favor and invest your hard-earned money in a game that at least managed to score higher than 80 on Metacritic.
I hate it.
I don't know about any of you, but I think this game is trash. The Wisp things were a horribe addition, the game lags all the time, once you beat it, it gets boring, and it's just annoying. The only good things about it are its graphics, some that are better off of the Wii, and the music is somewhat memorable, but is not ALL good... Apparently, it's -Super Mario Galaxy- about jumping around planets, -Super Mario Galaxy- and, -Super Mario Galaxy- there are these -Super Mario Galaxy- little creatures, -Super Mario Galaxy- that give you powers. And that reminds me. Super Sonic. Think about it for a while. 7 little jewel things, more powers, and all of that other stuff. Definitely not stolen from something all of you should have recognized... Way to go, SEGA...
Sega finnaly got it right
This is a great game for the wii with great controles, graphics, and sound. The single player mode will take a few hours, and you will spend hours trying to get all red rings and trying to get super sonic. It is worth every penny.
It's really fun, but all the levels are really similar like Mexican music. It's ok. The actual levels are 1 player.
this game is awesome
this game is great I played through the whole game and it was great there was no problem with the game but the the game it self was easy and a little short but its still a great game and best of all its $20 so you should get it
Sonic at his best
A 3D Sonic game that finally feels truly like the original 2D's. Sonic Unleashed was a good start with the daytime levels but this game took that and just made it better. With lots of platforming and racecar feeling gameplay I finally feel like Sonic is actually goin the speed of sound (Unlike previous 3D Sonic games) The replay value is great but if you are just a one time run through type of gamer i would suggest rental as the game is short. Unless you are a long time Sonic fan like me, then you SHOULD buy it.
Good Job SEGA
I liked the game overall, but the gameplay wasn't challenging to me at all. this is a good game if your new to Sonic speed gameplay.
