Sonic the Hedgehog may not have the best track record when it comes to the 3D realm, but there have been some exceptions by developer Sonic Team. Sonic Colors, which originally launched on the Nintendo Wii in 2010, is widely agreed to be one of the better entries in the franchise, delivering vibrant visuals, a terrific soundtrack and tight gameplay. Much of that has been retained in Sonic Colors: Ultimate, though you're not missing out on much in the long run.
The story of Sonic Colors: Ultimate is a familiar one that we've probably seen a few times before in the series. Dr. Eggman, seemingly turning over a new leaf, decides to open an amusement park called Dr. Eggman's Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park. Sonic and Tails, suspecting foul play, decide to investigate Eggman's park, only to find out that he's attempting to harness the power of an alien species called Wisps for a mind-control laser that will help him take over Earth. Sonic, along with many of his friends, team up to thwart Eggman's plans.
Sonic Team clearly put a lot of effort in bringing these strikingly gorgeous levels to life.
The Wisps are a great unique addition to the game that always keeps things fresh and exciting.
...most modern Sonic games deliver great soundtracks and this might be one of the best.
