Review: Sonic Colors Ultimate makes one of the best 3D Sonic games better than ever

Both fans of the Wii original and newcomers will enjoy Sega’s top-notch remaster

An impressive remaster of an already entertaining Sonic game, this should keep Sonic fans busy until we get something new (as long as you're happy replaying levels for S-Ranks, because otherwise it's pretty short).

  • A significant visual upgrade over the Wii original
  • One of the more satisfying 3D Sonic games to play
  • The Wisp power-ups lend some welcome variety
  • The new lives system makes it more fun for younger players
  • Cosmetics are rubbish and cutscenes are ugly
4 / 5
Version tested
PlayStation 5
