New from £12.66

Sonic Colours sees Sonic accelerating to adrenaline-pumping super speeds and blasting through obstacles in ways never before seen in a Sonic game. The alien Wisps in Sonic Colours each have a unique "Colour Power" that, once freed, Sonic is able to absorb whilst speeding through the various theme park inspired planets.

The Wisp energy enables Sonic to create new paths through the stages by drilling through the ground (Yellow Drill) for example, or speeding through the stage as a laser (Cyan Laser). Stringing the Wisp power ups together creates a combo that increases Sonic's boost gauge even more quickly. Exclusive Wisp power ups will be available for both Wii and the Nintendo DS versions, ensuring a unique and super speedy gameplay experience for Sonic fans everywhere.

 Sonic is back!!!

How can someone give this game 1 star???? I dont write reviews but I have to defend this game, its AMAZING!!! There has not been a sonic game this good since SA2! Its short but sweet, straight to the point, sees the return of the classic sonic style corny jokes and has tons of replayability. Even though sonic team cant seem to stay away from adding a gimmick, I really feel like the wisps actually make this game so much better. With various additional temporary powers like becoming a laser, digger and a rocket among others gives each level many different routes to explore. Also to top it all off there is even a multiplayer, which is pretty epic in its own right!

Anyone who gives this game less than five stars is crazy, this game is a must have for any casual gamer or hardcore sonic fan.

Just got this for Xmas yesterday and was very excited to play it sorry to say but it was a complete let down. The game has no point to it and it is nothing like the original! Wii needs to get in gear and bring the original out!

This is honestly the best Sonic The Hedgehog game since Adventure 2 Battle! Combination of 3D gameplay and classic style side scrolling. beautifully detailed and colourful levels! Extremely fun and addictive game, and a heartwarming storyline. Perfect for Sonic fans and non sonic fans alike!

 Sonic Regains His Colours

For the Last few years Sonic has been getting a whole lot of stick for his new 3D adventures, although there was a mix opinion on some of his recent games there has always been light at the end of the tunnel. And that light is the Colours that Sonic has been long awaited for in the last 20 years, Sonic is back baby and Sonic Colours is not only one of the best Sonic games in the last 10 years but probably one of his best game since the glory of the Megadrive era.

Sonic Colours uses similar gameplay to Sonic Unleashed but unlike Sonic Unleashed it is actually fun. The game focuses more on Sonics speed and action, and with a unique twist the new Wisp characters are introduced giving sonic all kind of powers which give the game more originality and excitement. The mix between the 3D and 2D environments are very good as well because at one moment you could be in a running in 3D mode then running in a classic 2D side scrolling environment which recreates the Sonic magic we know and love. Plus the graphics look brilliant especially on a HD TV, possibly one of the best graphics I have seen on Wii all year. Plus the addition of new voice actors work brilliant as well, Sonic sounds like the fun, care free hero he is and Tails actually sounds older and braver. The story is pretty good as well and suites the voice actors perfectly because it involves a lot of comedy which makes the characters stand out and come to life.

Like every game there are some bad points and Sonic Colours has some which can affect how you play. Mostly it depends what controller you are using because the game offers the use of the Wii nunchuck and Wiimote or the classic controller Pro and Gamecube controllers. Myself I believe the Classic Controller Pro is the best option because the buttons are laid out simply unlike the Wiimote option which can get confusing. The side scrolling parts of the game can get difficult as well especially when it comes to jumping from platform to platform over a nothing which will take some of your lives, this is because of the sensitive analogue sticks so be careful. The game is also reasonably hard and this is because of the sensitive controls, so be prepared. The story seems short as well, I have yet to complete it but I have almost completed every Zone so far.

Sonic has come a long way to get a reasonably good game, and after years of disappointment I think everyone will be surprised on what this game offers. With some of the most fun in a Sonic game since Sonic Heroes, Sonic Colours really does regain the Colours and Magic we all loved when we are kids. And now that Sonic is reaching his 20 years I believe with this game there is a whole new world waiting for the future of Sonic, and with this by its side it is a bright one at that. If you own a Wii you must own this game, simple as that.

 Love it
