Jaunty, largely inoffensive tunes that have undergone a remix for this overhauled version of SEGA's 2010 crack at 3D Sonic will wash over you, while the voice of the blue blur will be instantly recognisable to anyone who's played a Sonic the Hedgehog game during the last decade or so.
Despite its age, Sonic Colours looks really slick at a higher resolution, graphical improvements, and revamped lighting making for a rather pretty game. It's just a shame that the same attention hasn't been extended to the game's cut-scenes, which look comparatively quite shoddy.
Though it seldom veers from the established formula for 3D Sonic games, Sonic Colours still stands up as one of the more fun examples of the spiky one in three dimensions. Wisps help keep things interesting, while each of the game's six worlds, and its various added extras, will keep you entertained.
A generous selection of stages, all imbued with ample replay value, assuming you fancy collecting all 180 red star rings and attaining 'S' ranks on every level. The 'Egg Shuttle' also offers the chance to tackle the game in a single 4-5 hour run, and you can customise Sonic with various gloves, shoes, auras, and boost effects, using collectible Park Tokens.
A slightly uninspired list that mainly covers collectibles, progression, and reaching 100% in almost every facet. Gaining 'S' ranks on every stage, beating the 'Egg Shuttle' run, and collecting everything will take a fairly long time, assuming you bother to dig in for the long haul.
