Sonic Colors review (WII)

HonestGamers
7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Tails makes an appearance, but he’s a plot device and the role he plays is almost completely non-annoying. As you complete the various stages, you’ll rely on the franchise’s true star, not second-rate bit players who a part of you wishes would die horrible deaths. It feels almost like you're getting away with something that you shouldn't as you play through the game’s 36 main stages and don't hate the bulk of them.

Test Sonic Colours

Generation NT
29 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Ce nouveau Sonic Colours se révèle plein de bonnes intentions envers son public. Ce ne sont pas les quelques légères nouveautés qui séduiront ici le plus, mais bien le gameplay et les mises en scène. La Sonic Team a su redonner du souffle à sa série, revenir en arrière pour mieux apporter de fraîcheur. Les transitions entre les dimensions se passent à merveille et apporte un gameplay réellement confortable.
  • Pros: Transition très fluide entre la 2D et la 3D, Des environnements variés et soignés, L'impression de bonne humeur qui se dégage du jeu, L'ajout des pouvoirs, Le degré de rejouabilité
  • Cons: Quelques lacunes dans la prise en main en 3D, Un niveau jouable à deux inefficace, Des nouveautés pas toujours très exploitées

Fast (too fast?), exciting chapter in this hedgehog story.

Common Sense Media
26 January 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Sonic Colors is the latest in a very long line of Sonic the Hedgehog games. It's a cartoony action tale that features violence only against robots. The plot does involve a villain kidnapping cute innocent aliens, however. As is typical of Sonic games, the action moves incredibly fast as Sonic zips along, and it can actually be disorienting for some players.

Sonic Colours Review (Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS)

Gamers Daily News
19 January 2011
  • Summary: An average Sonic title on all accounts. The colours are an interesting idea but just didn’t seem to pop like I thought they would. SEGA has stated they are dedicated to making better Sonic games, lets hope that they come through on that promise soon.

Sonic Colours Wii Review

Console Obsession
10 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Having seen Nintendo’s critical and commercial success with Mario Galaxy, SEGA has made a Sonic game that seems to be heavily inspired by Nintendo’s magical game. The box art is quite similar, the title screen music sounds like the type of thing that can be heard in Galaxy, and the whole thing is set in space. But we all know that both Sonic and Mario have very different focuses when it comes to how they play.

  • Conclusion: 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 product. More importantly, they've paced it well and exercised restraint with extraneous content.

Sonic Colors

AV Club
29 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Early in Sonic Colors , during one of the game’s few, brief story sequences, the titular hedgehog’s hetero-lifemate Tails asks what he and Sonic are doing in a space-bound theme park run by the supposedly reformed Dr. “Eggman” Robotnik. Sonic tells his pal that they’re going to figure out why Eggman is kidnapping aliens and what his evil plot is. “Then we’re going to foil that plot, right?” Tails asks. “Yep,” Sonic replies, more casual than put-on-cool.
