Critic Reviews for Sonic Colors: Ultimate

The new content introduced in Sonic Colors: Ultimate is unremarkable, but the base game still remains one of the best examples of how a modern Sonic game should be, even nearly 11 years later.

Sega aims to please Sonic fans during the Blue Blur's 30th anniversary, trying to learn from the mistakes of Sonic games that launched this past decade and improve on them. From the enhanced graphics and extra customization, to the addition of the Tails Save mechanic, Rival Rush, and a brand new and elusive Wisp, Sonic Colors: Ultimate has proven to be the most colorful remaster in Sonic's history.It may be a rehash of a decade-old game instead of an entirely new one, but Sonic Colors: Ultimate still manages to pass the test with flying colors.

Technically it's still the best modern Sonic, if you don't count Sonic Mania, but time has not been particularly kind and neither has this unambitious remaster.

It might sound hyperbolic because Colors is one of the better ones to trot out, but I hope this ensures that Sega stops trying to hide its Sonic history. Bring out the Unleashed and Black Knight remasters, even if they’ll need more smoothing than Colors. Sonic has a long and turbulent history, but everyone deserves to see it without tracking down used copies of forgotten games.

‎A very complete game that knows how to capture the essence of Sonic, especially in its 3D aspect. It is not the most spectacular version, but it is enjoyed equally (and also anywhere)‎

Sonic Colours Ultimate, the beloved return colored and brightest than ever, with improvements and a new mode called 'Rival Rush' to test your skills against Metal Sonic. Did you think Sonic Colours radiated with so much power that it was already phenomenal? SEGA has taken one step further and delivered even more hours of fun with this remaster.

Refined controls, a revamped soundtrack, and some new features still make Sonic Colors: Ultimate a game that fans of the franchise will surely enjoy.

A good remaster for one of the most appreciated 3D chapters of the franchise.
