Anti-Sonic Colors Stamp by MeltingMan234 Anti-Sonic Colors Stamp by MeltingMan234
Also known as the Sonic game I hate but everyone else likes. It's like people worship this game as God like how all those Classic Sonic Fanbrats worship the first Sonic game as God, to me Sonic Colors was crap. So I'm gonna explain why I didn't like the game before I'm murdered by a bunch of sensitive fanbrats who are too blind to read descriptions.

The story was mediocre at it's finest. Robotnik finally achieves his plans in making an amusement park, which was the stupidest idea in the first place. "Oh hey, I'm gonna build an amusement park because I'm evil that way, soon I shall have PRRRROFIT!" So Sonic and Tails thinks Robotnik is behind all of this which is pretty obvious and after that, it's nothing but poor writing. There's also something about some device called the Hyper Go-on thingy that sounds interesting but I barely remember any of it because of all the shitty ass dialogue that I have to sit through. The story is about as dried up as the Gobi Desert. They demonstrate the Hyper Go-on by controlling Tails mind to attack sonic, which lasts about 10 seconds. After one of it's power supplies was destroyed, that was it for the Hyper Go-on. They could've done more with it like having the system achieve full power and brainwashing Sonic's Friends in which he would have to battle them and find ways to destroy the source, that would've been more interesting. But nope, they decided to not go down the successful route because SEGA is too afraid to take chances since Sonic is they're only life support since they've abandoned every franchise they've made that could've kept them in proper business if it wasn't for their fetish of poor marketing on any SEGA Games that doesn't have Sonic in it. There's not much to talk about the DS Version besides the fact that there's a different Final Boss, Super Sonic, and more characters that are just tacked on and completely pointless. They're just there to show off the new voices and do nothing for the story, especially when Rouge is in there cause she's no longer a developed character, she's just there for the fan service.

As I've said a few times, the writing in this game is pure torture. I really had a hard time sitting through the cutscenes and the dialogue. The voices are good and okay, even though Amy's New voice is the only one I can't stand, but hearing them spew out dialogue in the game is just horrendous. The writing was done by the same people who did Happy Tree Friends, you know that show about cute little animals getting into Violent situations? Well obviously they couldn't do that in the game so they really toned down the writing and came out with something that would show up in an old cheesy 1980's Super Hero Comic. There's scenes like Sonic talking to that Giant Space ship before he battles it, I did not laugh at all when most of the time he's just grabbing the camera and saying, "Hey I'm being funny, LAUGH YOU IDIOTS I'M BEING FUNNY!!!!!" I'm just sitting there as if all of my brain cells are dyeing out one by one. This is about as entertaining as Sonic talking to a Stump. Then there's the scene where Sonic talks to Robotnik before the final boss battle, that scene alone was trying way to hard to be funny, especially when Robotnik is becoming a very weak villain in these recent games. I even questioned about the Egg Pawns coming back. In Sonic Unleashed he had the Egg Fighters which were more advanced and an upgrade to the egg Pawns. And in Colors, he goes back to the frikin egg pawns, and he calls himself a scientist with an IQ of 300. Commander Keen and Mortimer McMire had a more higher IQ then him, and they were frikin kids! And this is why I prefer the Archie Sonic counterpart of Robotnik. In fact, every cutscene in this game tries to hard to be funny, the only one that I laughed at was when Cubot got hit by the chair, other then that, I felt dead inside watching the rest of the cutscenes. The only one that was actually good was when Sonic and Tails found the place where all of the wisps are being imprisoned. No overused jokes, now acting like an asshole, just proper dialogue. MORE OF THAT PLEASE! Now some people are saying that they are trying to be like Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and how cheesy the writing was in that show, well there tends to be a difference here. AOSTH was released back in 1993, when it was common and actually worked for it's time. Sonic Colors was released in 2010, nobody does that anymore. The writing itself just feels so out dated and just makes my ears bleed, as if I'm watching a crummy teenage sitcom off of Disney Channel.

Now I know Story isn't everything in a Sonic Game, there's still Gameplay. But even the gameplay in this game is a train-wreck. Annoying and repetitive which is the best way to describe it. The game is supposed to be, "2D and 3D mixed together" but throughout the entire game your forced to go 2D all the way and there's barely any 3D stuff in it. I wouldn't mind if it just happened a few times, but here, your forced to go 2D in every frikin stage. And it really begs the question on why not just make the entire game 2D instead of having these little 3D bits that are nothing more but cock teases? But hey, this is SEGA and as you know, they never explain a damn thing. Obviously SEGA has no idea what kind of game they were making, they were trying so hard to make the Classic fanbrats shut up, Going 2D all the way and even adding in some of the old cheap Badniks of the past couldn't keep them quite. There was even this one time when I got stuck on Planet Wisp and the Aquarium level where I kept dyeing from trying to jump over a huge gap or to run away from a giant robot. It tells me to press a button and so I did, and I kept dyeing. Then I found out you have to either hold it down or keep pressing it, which worked. I'm sure they already explained this stuff in the first few levels, but after sitting through the out of date writing which was making me dumber, I barely remembered which button does what. This game is like Avatar, Avatar had a predictable storyline, boring characters, and it's nothing but eye candy with it's overused special effects and CGI. Sonic Colors has awful writing, unbalanced gameplay and it's also nothing but eye candy with it's pretty graphics.

The only thing I liked about this game was the Wisps and the Music. The wisps had fun special abilities while the Music was very good. But that's all I can think of for anything I liked about this Game. Sonic Colors is overrated. The music is good, the gameplay is unbalanced, the writing is garbage, and everything else falls flat entirely. Probably one of the worst Sonic Games I've ever played. I've played a good amount of Sonic games from the old ones to Sonic adventure and the current ones, and this one tried way to hard to please a section of the fanbase that'll never shut up. I'd had more fun playing Sonic Unleashed then play Colors because Unleashed was actually good, I'd rather torture myself with Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly then to torture myself rather then torture myself with the god awful writing in colors, I'd rather suffer through playing Crash Boom Bang! again then to suffer Colors unbalanced gameplay. The only people I know of that didn't like Colors either is Roger Van Der Wiede and a few of my friends. It seems like me and Roger sort of share the same opinions with Colors as I enjoy listening to him tear Sonic Colors apart in his Dissecting Sonic series, even though he'll have to call it quits with the more recent episodes. But yeah, Sonic Colors wasn't what I was expecting and it's not for me. I've beaten it once and I'll probably never play it again.

Special Thanks to ApocolipticFaint for the base stamp

I felt the game play was solid, and the level design was good... I'm simply sick of Sonic games playing it so safe.  Colours, like gnerations took no risks.  The thing I love about Sonic games is that they always try something new... Colours and Generations, though not necessarily bad, were boring.

well at least I know somebody who hates the writing as much as I do.

Sonic is meant to be cocky and like a jerk, but the whole point was that under all that he cared for things. What happened to him in Colours, Generations and Lost World, completely, COMPLETELY contradicted his earlier personality from Unleashed, which had really good writing by the way.

I own only the DS version of Colours, however, as part of the Colours plot, I feel it does a better job of the writing. The side missions are side missions, the other characters are just in there for sake of being there, I don't mind that, but there's a joke Sonic pulls that indirectly mentions Knuckles when they meet the Orange Wisp, Tails doesn't act any much different and not to mention the translator doesn't show how out of character Tails was like his portrayal in the Wii version and the 2 games that followed. It was still lighthearted, but didn't shove it in our faces like the Wii version did. I've watched the cutscenes bear in mind and the same cutscene MM234 is talking about is also the only one I find any interest in because they actually feel genuine concern instead of being idiotic characters with Sonic skins on them.

There was a thing found on the internet from an interview that these guys literally looked up Wikipedia, and wrote accordingly to that. With Generations that hope I had started falling and then Lost World just... I just, what...

I actually bought Lost World hoping it to be better than the games' writing that had preceded it, but Tails being a complete jerk OUT OF NOWHERE (this was also in Colours, but seriously, describe to me a moment in any previous game where he showed devel of him becoming a jerk).

I'm sure if you mentioned to me a joke, I would just understand such the problem and talk of it, but talking about Colours alone, most of it is full of dialogue that can't be taken seriously. "Well Sonic is a cartoon series duuuuh" refer to my DS argument. There ARE ways you can make it lighthearted without shoving it in our faces and or changing the original characters' personalities. You need to be able to take it seriously to a degree. Eggman was imprisoning Wisps and using their power. What's the majority of the games' cutscenes? Dialogue that has no relation to their goal and instead is just them poking fun at each other when it is really not the time. Unleashed, Colours DS, Adventure 1. Sonic talking to a robot before he fights him with corny remarks that "he ordered a clobbering." Sonic is meant to be the cool guy, not "he's so much of a jerk but he's cool." I don't hate the voice actors despite me liking the 4Kids actors, it's just the writing has dragged it down. The plot details Eggman is capturing Wisps, so I would think they'd take their goal of saving these things a little more seriously. That cutscene, in both versions when the Wisp factory is found is beautiful, that is probably the only moment where they actually cared.

I've actually lost most of my faith in the Sonic series because of the writing. I like a story with a Sonic game, and a lighthearted plot like this is fine, but the writing of said plot falls flat, unbelievably so. The same holds true for Generations and Lost World, I can play alot more earlier games than this one and the story can still be interesting because of it being less forced in quality.

The game itself was a difficult stretch, I can only say so much since I've played Wii multiplayer but no more. I've watched it been played several times but I just absolutely despise the Wii version's cutscenes. Except that one. It is so overpraised and overlooks the handheld counterpart of it and the other handheld games that also had great stories without the same ridiculous 'humour' that's been involved in basically all the games after Colours bar Boom Wii U but that has issues of its own.

It's probably due to the lack of care fo the DS. I got the Mother Wisp extra Monster-of-the-Week Super Sonic fight which sort of explained story, we got Chaos Emeralds, side character cameos in missions and better writing in the main plot.

Also, because there's only 6 wisps in the game there's a meeting cutscene for each, and like I mentioned, there's a ref for Knuckles in the Orange Wisp one. Lemme pull my old game out and see.

Sonic: What's this orange guy's deal? Is he mad?
Yacker: *wisp junk*
Tails: Apparently not, Sonic. "He's got a short fuse, but he's not mad now." I bet he's a real terror when he's mad. Just like a certain red friend...
Sonic: Heh, Knuckles? I don't know, this guy looks even more dangerous to me.
Yacker: *wisp junk*
*orange wisp fuses, end of cutscene pep-talk of power*

See how the reference was subtle? Not to mention, the entire game is made out of the writing seen up there. Writing that isn't corny or shoved-in-our-faces humour. Pontaff just seriously disgusts me at this point as these characters seen here have changed. The writing in this game is to the point but also lighthearted and calm. Subtle references like that aren't all over the game but they are there somewhat. If the versions had switched, or even duplicated the writing, maybe even the side missions and the Chaos Emeralds from the DS version, maybe it might have performed better.

The DS version in my honest opinion is the definitive version of this game in terms of content and story. This is a HANDHELD we're speaking of, and the only legit probable way Chaos Emeralds were in the Wii U version was by the Super Sonic Red Rings award! The DS supported special stages and side missions while the Wii version had none of that. Granted, both were optional and I haven't even completed them all, but they're there for the sake of more content. The game's writing is also hugely better.

Seriously, in all honesty, like you said, it is extremely underrated. People don't see it enough and I feel technically it's the last game in the series with good writing, brought down by the more-seen console equivalent.

Like the Knuckles reference above, that was more than enough to tell me that this world involves more characters than these two and their cheerleader buddies (next game here). I honestly love the DS version compared to the Wii one. I wish more did.

Yet there's nothing to prove that. Sonic only does well on Nintendo consoles cause for the past few years, he's mainly BEEN on the consoles and nothing else. The Wii had the biggest install base out of it's generation, yet both Colors and Generations sold around the same amount as 06 and Unleashed, years later. Also, Sonic Heroes sold better on the PS2 then it did Xbox and GC. The Rush, Advance, and Olympic are ONLY on Nintendo consoles, so there's nothing to compare it to.

Psyco-The-Frog Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2015
If that were the case, Colors would've been a much bigger seller then 06 and Unleashed, and this is a years later with market inflation. There's also the fact that Generations sales weren't much different from Colors, and Sonic 2 least selling titles being exclusive to the WiiU, Lost World and Boom. As far as gamers go, that's only the hardcore, not everyone single person who buys Sony and Microsoft consoles are only into FPS and other shooters, especially when both have online arcade games with many alternatives, which includes Sonic games. Sonic Adventure 2 was also one of the best selling digital titles on both Xbox Live and PS Network, for multiple months, Sonic CD also made it up there.

That's because at that time people started to lose interest in Sonic because of the so call "dark age" of Sonic for Colors. Eh Generations idk what to say. Sonic adventure 2, at that time Sonic had a bigger fanbase and it was one of the best games. Of course people are going to buy the hd remake. He does have a fanbase on other consoles tho.

I agree on most of that, the only things i really enjoyed from Sonic colors was the music for some level's, the main theme song Reach For The Stars, the graphics, some act's were fun but to much 2D when it's supposed to be a 3D Sonic game, the Classic Sonic 2D games the Sonic Advance and Rush series were better for 2D gameplay in my opinion, the final boss was pretty good, but the past Sonic 3D games had better bosses and more serious villains in my opinion, the Wisp's are ok, i think their kinda cute and likable but they seem like they belong in a Mario game not a Sonic game to me, The ability's from the Wisp's are pretty cool but once again seems more like something from Mario, the game is not challenging enough to me also, Sonic Unleashed and Sonic And The Secret Rings were harder and had better bosses and storyline's also in my opinion, the storyline and plot was alright but i honestly liked it when Sonic's storyline's were more serious, interesting, deep and emotional, like the ones from Sonic games like Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, Sonic Battle for Gameboy Advance, Shadow The Hedgehog, Sonic 06, Unleashed, and also the Storybook series Secret Rings and Black Knight. The story and plot in Sonic Games like Colors, Generation's and Lost World are to childish and corny to me, I can't take them seriously like i used to, The script is alright but the humor seems a bit forced and is not my cup of tea, I don't like how Sonic or some of the other characters act now, I miss there old personality's and the 4Kids voice actors a lot honestly, It seems like Sonic Games now days are nothing but a fusion of the old Sonic Adventures cartoon and Super Mario, Sonic Colors is a copy cat of Mario Galaxy in my opinion, it's a good game but it is overrated and most of the old Sonic 3D games are better then Colors in my opinion.

I agree, Sonic Colors storyline was to childish and the script had to many immature and lame jokes in it, I could not take it very seriously. I don't like Roger as Sonic's new voice actor he does not sound right for sonic, Jason and Ryan are the two best Sonic voice actors, Sonic's voice actor from the original Saturday AM Cartoon sounded better as Sonic then Roger to me also. The game have very good grathics and great music soundtracks but those were the best part's about the game to me, the Act's were two short and they should have been longer and a bit more challenging also, but most of all their was *why too much freaking 2D* and not enough 3D. The only good and challenging boss was the final boss, the other boss battle's sucked and were too easy, except for maybe the Asteroid planet Boss sometimes.
