For our next title, we’ve got another solid ‘modern Sonic’ experience; Sonic Colors. Sega really kept their promise of rectifying previous mistakes in Sonic games for the Wii. Instead of becoming hung up on piecing together all the best parts of a Sonic game, the whole development process seems to have been more focused on just creating a good Sonic game while keeping the core ingredients intact. Colors is fast and precise. It marries the 2D and 3D gameplay sequences better than ever before. The introduction of the Wisps doesn’t slow down and complicate the gameplay, it actually fits in perfectly, providing a little more strategy and variety which is very refreshing. Taking all this fresh, delightfully functional gameplay and pairing it with a great soundtrack, vibrant locations and some decent voice acting gives us a great all-round Sonic experience that shouldn’t be missed.
