  1. man after replaying colors i'm tempted to upgrade my opinion of it from "it was in the right place at the right time" to "legit good game".

    most of my problems with the game still stand and I certainly wouldn't call it the ideal direction for the series, but in practice it honestly works. great aesthetics, the heavy 2d focus and more modest pace allow for far more interesting 2d sections than the other boost games, most of the wisps are used in creative ways, and i still find most of the dialogue fun and refreshing. plus, no obnoxious alternate gameplay padding; just straight sonic from beginning to end.

    there's still some considerable jank in the controls (especially the location-dependent quick step and drift, and quick step being on the control stick), not all of the jokes land (mostly just the translation ones), and it's certainly not a success as a 3d sonic game (though I might argue its 3d is better than forces') but like...best boost game? within the top 10 of all sonic games? that's what I'm feeling right now...

      Ironically, everything I hated about that game exists in Forces. Short levels, lack of many features the other BOOST games had.

      Sonic Colors is the best looking boost game with beautiful stage themes and overall great art direction but its gameplay isn't quite the best. I'd say Sonic Generations has the best boost gameplay to date with refined controls and more open level design.

      I wouldnt call it the best boost game but it legit does a lot of non boost gamey things well and i kinda wish it wasn't a boost game so it could do those things even better?

      @Chili Dawg considering i've also replayed gens and heroes recently and came out pretty pissed at both i don't think i've lost my edge quite yet

      Concerning modern Sonic games as a whole, it's easily the most focused and most well-rounded package. Not a fan of the level design mentality and the gameplay as a whole isn't much to talk about, but in addition to not having some blatantly stupid padding in it, it also has a decent amount of levels (even though that's largely due to it recycling acts) and has honestly one the best presentations for Sonic games, in both visuals and soundtrack.

      You also have to give Colors additional kudos in hindsight as the last Sonic game that is actually has new worlds/level settings throughout the game. Every mainline Sonic game since then has either brought back or rehashed old levels to a significant degree (Lost World being a halfway exception as while Windy Hill was the only serious offender in regarding past Sonic games, the rest of the game was a direct rip of worlds/level settings from Mario games).

      oh god I despise Colours. Like I have a legit hate for that game. Don't tell me it ends like this in old age.

      I liked the ds version better than the Wii version Tbh. But nothing beats the graphics on the Wii version.
