Sonic Colors demonstrates there’s still some mileage left in the hedgehog and then piles on mechanics completely alien to the series. At least this time, people didn’t get a giant cat with a fishing pole. Instead of really focusing on the platforming aspects which made this series great or reinventing it all together, Sonic Colors falls for the trap of trying to cover both and accomplishing nothing. Sonic Team has clearly demonstrated that they know what it takes to make a good game. Now if only they could save themselves from their own franchise.
