    I just ordered Colours off Amazon, due totally to this thread. Congrats. :3

    You should have done it regardless of this thread. It really is the most worth-while Sonic game in the last decade or so excluding the Rush and Advanced series.

    I loved the 360 daytime Unleashed levels. If it's even close to that, I will be a very happy panda.

    95% of the levels in colours are excellent. Just a warning though, there are 2 or 3 levels that use a shitty hovering yellow spring that moves slowly which you have to keep landing on while avoiding obstacles. These levels are fucking terrible, but mercifully short.

    I got to try Colors the other day. I was excited to really try to get into Sonic again.

    Unfortunately all my conclusions from the early days were reinforced. I think I've tainted these threads with my Sonic contempt in the past, but I have a genuine inquiry: can anyone point me towards a YouTube of a decent, average, play session of a Sonic game considered good? I'm working a bit of written work related to it and would like to try a deconstruction of a play session from an average gamer.

    I maintain my position that Sonic Unleashed's Daytime levels were off the hook. In fact, they weren't even in the same room as the hook.

    It was the one and the only time that quick time events have felt right to me.

    It's why I'm getting Colours; everything I've read suggest it's just a whole game of that kind of gameplay, taken one step further. :D

    So what does all of this mean for Sonic 4? After everyone (myself included) shit on the new physics engine they've been pretty tight lipped about Episode 2.

    There was a fairly recent interview with the head guy re: episode 2. They've JUST started development, so it's not gonna be a 20th Anniversary release.

    IIRC, they talked about hearing the fan complaints. But also commented that Epi2 will lock on - which IMO destroys any chance of a new engine - if they're gonna bolt together ala Sonic 3+K, then they must essentially be the same game underneath, right? :/

    Only other thing I remember - he said there would be less recycling of old levels.

    I'll try and find it for ya. :3

    Not as great as the Wii version, but not bad. Think Sonic Rush 3 with powers and you'll be half way there. A few of the powers have changed also and the soundtrack is not as good.

    If there is ONE problem I've had with Sonic Colors so far, it's that in some portions, you need to use what's basically a "land" button. That is, pressing it makes Sonic stop forward movement and just shoot down to the ground, often using a kick which can break through some stuff.

    There are some platforming bits where that seems to either be necessary to not overshoot the platforms, or that you simply require a significant amount of skill for an otherwise simple task.

    It's not a dealbreaker or anything, but it does kind of take some adjustment for one used to simply jumping and landing.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything but I gotta say I wasn't blown away by Colors. Probably because I'd seen enough media to expect it to be really good, and then it wasn't as good as I imagined. Particularly the physics and jumping are kinda annoying, it always feels like you can't jump high enough or far enough or with enough precision. It just doesn't feel like it should, in my opinion.

    Now, the graphics and music are awesome and I love the direction they went with the game and all. Some of the level design is meh, especially that spring thing.

    Yeah, I thought Colors was pretty lame personally

    I think that just solidifies the fact that Sonic isn't for me, but at least now I feel like I've given it enough chances in both the 2D and 3D realms

    I'm glad they're going in a direction with this new game that people like, though, as Colors was pretty well-received

    I like Colors, but it's definitely a different feel from 2D Sonic, old or new. In fact, it reminds me a lot of Super Mario Galaxy/2 in that regard: even when playing in 2D, it's a completely different feel from the actual 2D games.

    I wasn't blown away either, mostly for the same reasons you listed, but I do like it quite a bit. If they continue in this direction (hopefully with less focus on stupid powers and fiddly platforming) and continue to improve, I will buy every new Sonic game that comes out.

    So, there are currently "leaked" images of the covers for this game and the sonic and mario game going around. Hopefully they turn out to be fake, because the M&S cover is for another goddam olympics game.

    Apparently, the translation from Portuguese is "Cover Not Final."

    And I hope that the Mario & Sonic game is as much fun as the DS Winter Olympic Games was. Adventure Mode, please!

    In other news, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is now on Xbox Games on Demand. $29.99.

    So with the Sonic Generations coming out, I've been really wanting to get myself back into the major Sonic games. So I've been playing Sonic 1-3, Sonic CD, and Sonic 4.

    I'm going to Best Buy today and will be tempted to buy Sonic Rush, which I've never played.

    Also I need to get Sonic Colors and I'm even tempted to find a cheap copy of Sonic Unleashed as I'm not sure I gave it a fair shake the first time.

    If you haven't played Sonic Rush Adventure either, that's the one I'd recommend. Rush felt too much like there was a way the developers wanted you to get through the level, and if you even considered straying from their vision, you're dead.

    Everybody needs to play Sonic Rush, even if Adventure is better, just because the first one has the best music.
