Sonic Colours: Ultimate Game Review – Kid and Parent tested

 

We have had the pleasure of testing out the brand new Sonic Colours: Ultimate game which is a remastering of the 2010 Nintendo Wii title Sonic Colours.

What the game is about

Sonic the Hedgehog is of course the feature of the game. He is  loving his time in the Interstellar Amusement Park – created by Dr. Eggman.

The Amusement Park is powered by an alien race called the ‘Wisps’. The ‘Wisps’ have their own personality and powers. For example, ‘Cyan’ turns Sonic into a laser beam which allows him to blast through the game at hyper speed. ‘Orange’ turns Sonic into a rocket and can be fired up into the air to reach high places. They all need to be freed with Sonic’s help (and the players of course). Keep your eye out for the new Jade Wisp too. This clever little creature grants Sonic the ability to pass through walls easily and levitate like a ghost to reach otherwise impossible areas. 

The features

The game has amazing graphics with bright, stunning visuals and a new game mode with other additional features too but the main feature I have found with this game is the way it has helped me reconnect with my son…

How it helped me reconnect with my son

I’ve not really played a lot of games with the kids because they’re usually playing each other (and I’m never ‘good’ at it). When I saw my son playing this game with such excitement, I decided to give it a go.

I really love the fact that there is a ‘mini-game’ inside the game called ‘The Game Land’. Because this realm is two player or ‘co-op play’, my sonwas able to lead me through different aspects of the realm and teach me how to play… he even waits for me to catch up bless him.

Why it helps

What I have found with kids sometimes is that they are not always in the ‘talking mood’. They often keep feelings and thoughts to themselves. What I have recently found is when they’re playing a video game with me and having fun, the conversation starts to flow. I have honestly found out more about their day when they’re playing the game then what I would get at the dinner table.

I am so grateful that I have been able to reconnect with my kids whilst playing these games. There is a lot of opinion out there on-screen time but in this instance, I have found it so important and I hope you do too.

A review from the kids

I asked my kids to write a little review on the game too:

My 13-year-old boy said this:

“The game is high quality and is really fun to play. The levels are all very creative and very exciting and challenging. The idea of the game is great, and I love to play it all the time. I would highly recommend this game and I give it a 10/10”.

My 10-year-old daughter said:

I liked the Sonic Colours game because it was very fun, and the graphics were great. I loved the effort the creators had put into it as it would have been a lot of work to create such an amazing game and the creators should be very proud. It was very cool because you can also play two player and I played with my brother. I absolutely LOVED the levels. Every level made me, and my brother laugh. Now I am addicted to this awesome sonic game and CANNOT stop playing it! 🤣
