Sonic Colours Ultimate Review
Posted: 5 weeks ago, last updated 2 weeks ago.
Sonic Colours Ultimate updates the classic Sonic Colours game. It adds higher resolution visuals, more game features and a new game mode. The original game was available on DS, Wii and PC. The new version comes to Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Play involves dashing through the race-track style levels as fast as you can while collecting rings and power ups. It sounds simple, but fast thinking and quick reactions are required to manoeuvre through hazardous obstacles and land your attacks perfectly to charge your Boost and reach Super Sonic speeds.
The fluid level design is a big draw here. Each of the immersive environments offers a twist on the challenge. From Sweet Mountain filled with delightful sweets to Aquarium Park filled with sea life and countless pools. Each level has secrets to discover including being able to pass through certain solid objects to discover alternate paths using the new Jade Wisp.
Along with the campaign levels, you can test your skills against Metal Sonic to unlock more rewards.

Rated PEGI 7 because it features depictions of mild violence. When characters are hit, bright lights and magical effects appear on impact. When Sonic is attacked, or runs into an obstacle, he lets out a small pained cry, flashes brightly and stumbles as coins fly out from his body. The player can jump on, or dash at, enemies to defeat them. The vast majority of the enemies found in this game are robotic in nature and explode and vanish upon being defeated.
ESRB EVERYONE for Cartoon Violence. Sonic can use spin attacks to knock over several robot enemies, resulting in punching sound effects, grunts, and brief explosions. Boss fights involve more protracted combat with larger robot enemies; combat can involve avoiding laser fire and pursuing and dashing at enemies from a third-person perspective.
