leafhopper's Sonic Colors (Wii) review

Its like some kinda awesome rainbow filled with greatness gravy

 

Sonic is back again and way better than Sonic Unleashed for a deddicated Wii/DS version. I got the Wii version since the DS version litterally Sonic Rush 3. I may get it later who knows.

Sonic is the only playable character in this game JUST Sonic. Tails is in the game but just for story he isnt playable. This time around Robotnik has build a flying Amusement park in space. Too bad he is using the power of some aliens and kidnapped THIER ENTIRE HOME PLANETS from them to do it. So its Sonic's responsibility to stop it.

I must say this is one of the better Sonic games in recent years. Up there with Adventure 2 battle for me.

Pros
-Great sense of speed. Much like the rush games that felt fast.
-The different aliens change up the gameplay so its not the same.
-One hell of a soundtrack and goes down for me as one of, if not the best, Sonic soundtrack of all time.
-The stages are called Acts again like the old days.
-Since Unleashed (the wii version at least) the camera no longer fights you as it did in previous 3D sonic games.
-The new voice for Sonic is pretty good. Who would think Chris Redfield's voice actor of Resident Evil 5 would do a great Job as sonic
-You have to WORK to get Super Sonic again like the old days. You have to get 180 Red Medalions and you can use Super Sonic in the normal stages since there is no super sonic deddicated level.

Cons
- I took my time on it even getting stuck at some parts and the game is 5 hours. Its a Sonic game so the length doesnt even affect its score, I just thought I would let you guys know. And thats not going for the extras so dont let that 5 hours fool you. I am just saying the actual game is short.
-Aliens change the gameplay like I said but also slow it down sometimes and Sonic ain't about being slow son.
-Some stages reach the realm of Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles terms of bull****.

Overall
This is one of the best 3D console sonic games in years and was a load of fun. Even more than Sonic Unleashed or Sonic and the secret rings. Speaking of which Sonic and the secret rings should't be that high. Its more like an 8. This game on the other hand:

A/9.0

    This is the best Sonic game since Sonic Adventure 2! The Sonic Cycle is officially broken. This game has THE best graphics on the Wii, and one of the best musical scores on the Wii (what else would you expect from Sonic Team?). The only problem with the music is a sad lack of Crush 40...but, oh well. The gameplay is non-stop fun, and the Wisps actually make it more enjoyable. Whats more, if you decide the Wisps aren't your thing, you can skip over them entirely. Overall, this is in the top 10 Wi...

    Sonic Colours? I barely Sonic know hers! 0

    Sonic Team really nailed the concept this time around. Sure, the daytime Sonic Unleashed levels were fun, but there were like about 8 of them and you had to navigate a menu for 20 minutes just to find them. In Sonic Colours, every aspect of the gameplay has been streamlined for the enjoyment of the player- loads of "daytime" style levels with stellar design, great gameplay mechanics (including the titular wisp "colours") and let's not forget some of the best Sonic game music since Sonic 3's funk...
