5 out of 5 eggsFun Game.

Pros: The game is fun, great for kids and adults alike, and a must for any fan of the Sonic franchise.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This was purchased as a gift for my daughter, who absolutely loved the game. She played it for a very long time. I even found myself playing it quite a few times, until I finally completed it as well.

There is not really much else to say about it, there are good review and videos of the game on the web to give you an idea if you will enjoy it or not, so I suggest giving them a search if that's a concern.

4 out of 5 eggsToo fast on too small a screen

Pros: Sonic Colors is just that: It's Sonic, and it's colorful. The DS can't really produce the absolute prettiest graphics, but man, this game still looks pretty.

Controls, for the most part, are tight enough to make Sonic do what you want him to do, within his own physical capabilities. The new boost feature lets you get up to mach speed in a millisecond, something that's VERY handy when trying to make precision turns and jumps and such. Also, homing attacks make jumping into enemies a breeze, and it's often necessary to get through the faster routes in each level.
The only time when the controls aren't that great are on a couple of the Sprite transformations (play the game to understand, it's worth it).

He's fast. Very, very fast. Since game 1, speed has always been Sonic's "thing." Somewhere in the mid-2000's, there were some games where Sonic, um, wasn't very fast. Well, I'm glad to say that his quickness is back. With a vengeance. Which nicely segues into the negatives

Cons: The DS screen, in a strict 2D environment (2.5D if you want to be picky) doesn't quite have enough room to give Sonic justice. It's a good thing that extra lives are given easily, because running around at mach 2 and NOT dying eventually becomes a combination of luck and the game taking its own measure to keep you from streaking into spikes/an enemy/a bottomless pit. Even so, successfully speeding from one end of the level to the other takes a certain amount of trial-and-error, good memory, twitch reflexes, and above all, patience.

By itself, that isn't enough to take off the one egg. However, there's a matter of game length. It just doesn't feel that long. In fact, the only thing that kept me from finishing this game in one day was the constant retrying of levels and missions.

Other Thoughts: I'm old-school. I have fond (read: frustrated into angrish) memories of Sonic 3 on the Genesis. This game has taken me back to those days (complete with angrish), with the new, fresh twist of the 2.5D. Also, the Sprites were kinda neat, and I wouldn't mind seeing them again.
