Initially launched again in 2010 for the Wii, Sonic Colours marked a return to kind for the Blue Blur. It righted the ship of Sonic’s 3D missteps by focusing totally on what makes the sequence enjoyable: feeling like you’re the quickest factor alive. Sonic Colours: Final is that very same sport, remastered for contemporary platforms with improved lighting, 4K/60 FPS help (besides on Swap, in fact), a remixed soundtrack, and a few different minor gameplay additions. None of those upgrades make Sonic Colours: Final a must-buy for returning followers, however for anybody who missed it as a consequence of being postpone by the likes of Sonic 06 and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1, it’s nonetheless adequate that this journey to Eggman’s Interstellar Amusement Park is already a straightforward suggestion.
No matter whether or not you’ve performed earlier than, the story of Sonic Colours received’t be a shock to anybody: Eggman is as much as no good, in search of to harness the ability of alien power to gas a mind-control weapon, and it is as much as Sonic and Tails to cease him. The plot clearly isn’t what anybody’s right here for, but it surely’s no less than effectively acted and sprinkled with just a few chuckles right here and there – particularly because of Cubot and Orbot, Eggman’s two robotic henchmen, who’ve their very own little working gag of Cubot’s voice chip always getting broken and changed, a lot to the chagrin of Eggman.
What’s essential in regards to the story, nevertheless, is that it introduces the Wisps, the small multicolored aliens that Eggman is looking down. These Wisps are the principle factor that separate Sonic Colours from each different mainline console Sonic sport, each previous and current. Consider them as transformation power-ups alongside the traces of what you’d discover in a Mario sport, solely you get to decide on when to activate their powers. Pink Wisps can flip you right into a Spike Ball that means that you can cling to partitions, yellow Wisps flip you right into a drill that may dig underground, and teal Wisps flip you right into a laser that may bounce off prisms and journey on the velocity of sunshine. They’re unlocked as you progress by means of Sonic Colours, however you possibly can at all times revisit previous ranges and replay them with Wisps that you just unlocked afterward to entry new paths, which is one thing that we’ll circle again to.
There are a complete of 9 Wisps that you would be able to unlock over the course of Sonic Colours: Final – together with a brand-new Ghost Wisp that wasn’t within the authentic sport – they usually primarily improve the 2 issues which are key to a fantastic Sonic sport: your velocity (duh), and the a number of paths that permit you to discover your personal means by means of a degree. A pink Wisp may provide the alternative to fully bypass a sluggish platforming part by zipping up a wall, a Drill Wisp may lead you to a subterranean path that’s means sooner than the one above floor, and a Laser Wisp can immediately shoot you throughout a bit lined with enemies, taking all of them out on the literal velocity of sunshine. These specific wisps do a fantastic job of various up the extent design with out ever slowing Sonic down.
Then there are Wisps extra geared towards secret gathering, light-puzzle fixing, and platforming. Whereas these are actually much less thrilling than those constructed round velocity, they nonetheless make exploration and revisiting ranges with new powers a number of enjoyable, as they might help you uncover new paths that dramatically change the circulation of a degree, and even allow you to enhance your time or rating.
The brand new Ghost Wisp might be the weakest of the bunch, because it’s actually solely used to combine up the places of some hidden Pink Rings in comparison with the place they had been within the authentic sport. With it, you possibly can float by means of partitions by pulling your self to an anchor level, and… that’s about it. In contrast to the opposite Wisp powers, it’s by no means actually utilized in any form of intelligent or satisfying means.
The one draw back to the Wisps is that, as a result of they’re drip fed to you one after the other over the course of the entire sport, the primary time by means of the early ranges of Sonic Colours isn’t almost as enjoyable as they’re whenever you’re in a position to replay them with all of the Wisps unlocked. This causes the primary few hours to be sort of a drag since you’re usually compelled alongside paths which are sluggish and tedious.
That’s a problem that carries over from the unique, however one which Sonic Colours: Final introduces for the primary time is said to its remixed soundtrack. The primary three ranges of any world play a newly remixed theme and the final three ranges play the unique variations. The bummer is that there’s no means to decide on which model you wish to hear, which sucks as a result of I’ve discovered that a lot of the authentic themes are far superior to the overly produced remixes. The soundtrack continues to be nice throughout, don’t get me incorrect, but it surely appears unusual to have each variations and never provide the possibility of choosing which one you wish to hear on a given degree.
The opposite large gameplay addition is a Rival Rush mode that permits you to race towards Steel Sonic in what is basically only a dressed-up time trial. It’s a enjoyable technique to problem your self to beat a degree shortly, but it surely feels prefer it must be one thing you are able to do on each degree as an alternative of there simply being one per world, a complete of simply six races all collectively.
Beauty gadgets had been additionally added on this remaster, supplying you with the power to customise Sonic’s footwear, gloves, aura, and enhance impact by spending a brand new foreign money that you would be able to gather all through every degree. None of them are significantly noteworthy although – it’s just a few straight recolors, easy visible results, and cheesy patterns. I discovered myself sticking with the basic look.
On the graphical facet of issues, Sonic Colours: Final holds up fairly effectively for an almost 11-year-old Wii sport. The one bitter spot is the cutscenes, which weren’t redone and are tremendous low-res on a contemporary display screen. However the precise gameplay runs at a gradual 60fps in 4K on the PlayStation 5, and there are some good enhancements made to the lighting and character fashions.
Sonic Colours: Final Screenshots
Most significantly, Sonic Colours: Final advantages from having been a stunning sport to start with. Its ranges are among the many most imaginative the sequence has ever seen, from the Rainbow Street-esque Starlight Carnival that has Sonic dashing by means of area whereas an intergalactic struggle performs out within the background, to the dreamlike Candy Mountain that’s made totally of junk meals. Each world is beaming with creativity and the unifying theme of all of it being a part of an amusement park is simply icing on the cake.
