Sonic Colors - Nintendo Wii, 2010

Sonic Team & co. put Sonic the Hedgehog 4 out on the virtual download services for all three consoles earlier this year. Hype it up mad hard. All the advertising, publicity and exposure is focusing on the sequel to one of the last good games, Sonic 3. TOO BAD IT WAS KINDA CRAPPY.

Oh? But what about Sonic Colors? Lol, that's for kids. Just a little side thing. Nothing real major. Get Sonic 4, guys.

>aim for children's market
>does shit right

You know why this game is underrated (to some degree) though, right? People've been burned too long to care anymore. It's "just another one'a those..." (why yes I am still scarred by the atrocities that were Sonic Heroes and 2006 *shudder*)

But. Guys. Really. Serious. It's finally broken. After 7 years. Seven years. It took them seven years and some change to fix this ish. AND YO, DON'T EVEN TOUCH UNLEASHED, another one of my favorite Sonic games that people didn't like for some stupid reason?! It was fuckin' great, people. Fans just kept arbitrarily bitching about the nighttime stages--kinda of how people just complain about how "annoying" Navi was in Ocarina of Time. Wasn't that big of a deal. NO but God of War is "epic" and "amazing" ldkjfkldfj Werehog Sonic has more combos than Kratos, bro.


I kept lighting up everytime I discovered teeny little stuff here and there about why I love Colors, though. I think it overtook the Sonic 3 & Knuckles spot for my favorite Sonic game ever, now. (Sorry, Sandopolis was against you...) The Wisps aren't even overbearing, using them is perfectly fine! And Japanese Kamen Rider W Gaia Memory announcer does the Wisp calls? FFFFFFU

I can't even begin to count the many ways this game is It's genuinely fun. And it has none'a that grimdark-getting-rezzed-by-a-girl-wielding-AK-47s-bullshit. It's just. Fun. I will admit, at first I was apathetic because of the aforementioned Sonic Cycle. Then I was skeptical. (What is this, Super Mario Galaxy?) But my bro insisted we try it.


I just--the soundtrack, the graphics, the COLORS, the one-liners, the innocence, the simplicity, the physics the dkljflkdj RRAGHHHGH it's like I'm 12 all over again, I love yoooou Sonic you're so cool

why the frig aren't more of my friends playing this game

I know there are much better choices out there for "underrated games" out there. I know this. Countless times I've thoroughly enjoyed a game in my day and went, "MAN this game is underrated!" But you know what? IT IS WHAT IT IS don't judge me

Don't say shit about Colors. Haters gonna hate, etc
