Sega's Takashi Iizuka has told ONM that Sonic Colours is one of the hedgehog's best games ever.
In a recent poll, ONM readers recently rated Sonic Adventure 2 Battle as the second best Sonic game ever so the mag asked if the hog's new game was one the best 3D outing since the GameCube platformer. This is what the producer of Sonic Colours had to say:-
"This is a similar title to Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, but the similarity comes from the concept - keeping the tempo very fluid. A similar concept applies here.
"Is it the best since then? We always strive to make the best Sonic game yet. It's at least on a par with Sonic Adventure Battle 2, and I'm confident it is one of the best Sonic games ever."
So, according to Iizuka it's not only as good as Battle but it's right up there with the likes of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and 3. Read our Sonic Colours preview to find out if he's right.
Sonic Colours will be released for Wii and DS on 12 November. Want to know more about the DS game? Here's ONM's Sonic Colours DS preview.
