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.

Sonic Colors: Ultimate has provided a fun experience over its few hours, despite its simple improvements in style of play, but graphical improvements and game performance have made the game more accessed across home appliances and computers, with the addition of a new style and enthusiastic music, making Sonic Colors: Ultimate a golden opportunity to get back to sonic classics again.

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.
