Excerpt: A 3D Sonic game that's actually good! For roughly 10 years, the once-mighty Sonic the Hedgehog has tried and largely failed to bring his unique sense of speed to three dimensional gaming with few exceptions. This time, however, he's finally cracked it. Yes, you read that right: this is a 3D Sonic title that truly works.
Summary: Sonic Colors may be just a tweaked Sonic Rush , but it’s still a blast to play. Enough challenges await new and old players alike as they join Sonic the Hedgehog in a crazy adventure involving mysterious but adorable Wisps and a beyond super-jumbo-sized amusement park. Any sources of stress-inducing frustration is relegated mostly to side content while the main game ramps up the difficulty stage by stage.
Conclusion: The two-player Versus mode, available as local multiplayer with a single card and online or against an AI opponent, is a substantial bonus. In this mode, you race on one screen against an opponent on the other. This two-screen competitive multiplayer works well and takes place on levels designed in keeping with the single-player mode's themed worlds.
Pros: Fast, classic side-scrolling action, Fun special "wisp" abilities, Great two-screen Versus mode.
Excerpt: Life has been rough for the iconic Sonic the Hedgehog over the past ten years. Year after year, another title in the Sonic series has released, with reception ranging from mixed to utterly awful. While the console editions of Sonic games tarnished the series’ legacy, a smaller developer known as Dimps quietly created the Sonic Advance and Sonic Rush series, which found commercial and critical success.
Conclusion: Sonic Colors is more of the same in many respects, retaining the blistering speed of the Rush series and recycling the special stages from previous years. Fans will still find a few surprises this time around, including a form of multiplayer support available from a single DS card, but it’s in the colour-based wisp abilities that the game tries to stand out from the crowd.
Summary: Poor old Sonic. After years at the top of his game as an ice-cool alternative to Nintendo’s wholesome heroes, the move to 3D platforming wasn’t kind to the hedgehog or his candy-coloured pals, allowing Mario, Lara and the rest to leave Sega’s mascot looking like a tired has-been. But after decades in the wilderness, Sonic Colors takes the best bits of Sega’s 16-bit classics and learns a few lessons from Mario, in turn delivering one the most accomplished, rewarding and...
Excerpt: Действительно, Colors можно назвать третьей частью Sonic Rush : и графика, и управление, и геймплей в целом очень напоминают предыдущие работы Dimps для DS. Тем не менее адвенчурной составляющей тут нет, а дизайн уровней, хромавший в первой Rush , заметно изменился в лучшую сторону. Главному нововведению Colors – различным сверхсилам, которые Соник приобретает при контакте с инопланетянами, – здесь также уделено немало внимания, и практически на каждом уровне найдется...
