Sonic the Hedgehog has been around for over 20 years and has been in a ton of video games. A lot of them are successful both commercially and critically. But if you’ve been around that long in the gaming world then you’ll have some bad games as well. Even Mario isn’t safe from the occasional bad game. Sonic 06, Shadow the Hedgehog, and the new Sonic Boom games seem to fit the bill for a bad Sonic game, for sure critically. I love the new Sonic Boom games, but I’m in the minority it seems. So those are the bad ones, but what about the best ones? I have several picks that I think are worthy of play, but one of the best sets of games in Sonic is Sonic Colors.
Both of the games, one for the DS and one for the Wii, are great fun. They offer challenging gameplay, fun bosses, and catchy music. They are some of the best offerings from Sonic in the last several years. If you want the best of “new” 3D (though it’s not the new standard now) Sonic gaming then you have the Wii Colors. If you want a game that’s more similar to the Genesis games with some fun features that enhance the game then you have the DS Colors. I think they’re great, still some of the best you can get when it comes to Sonic. Have you played these games yet? How do you feel about them?
