If you're strong, you can fly.
Today's issue of PB & Jason features Sonic Colors! In addition, there's a bit of news about Metroid: Other M, The Conduit 2, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character reveals, and Kinect sales.
A grand space elevator. A theme park in the sky. Giant robots. Planets tethered together. Men shaped like eggs. How could I not love this new Sonic title?
Sonic Colors poses a strong argument in response to the question above. A successor to the day stages of Sonic Unleashed in controls and stage design, virtually everything the title offers rides on the waves of mediocrity under the glitz and the glam of gorgeous graphics and diverse stage backgrounds. The gameplay, stage design, special abilities, controls, story, bosses, and enemies leave whole planets worth of expectations to be desired, unfortunately.
So, having tons of hands on experience through out the years, one of the booths I made sure to get near on the first day was Sega, to view any new Sonic title available.
Let me say this: I was impressed. I'm not the easiest Sonic fan to please, having enjoyed the legacy titles and parts of Sonic Adventure and it's sequel but little else in the franchise.
