Can Sonic Be Good Again? E3 Videos Inside

So, I went to E3, and of course I was excited; there were so many good games to see and play.  Sonic Colors, however, was not even on my radar, because for the last 8 years or so, his best games have been mediocre, or parts would be good, but the rest of the game would be ruined by something (like, I dunno, some unnecessary werehog levels?).  I was at the Nintendo booth, checking out some of the smaller non-Zelda games, and I saw Sonic Colors.  I thought, what the heck, I’ll give it a try.  To my surprise, I actually had fun playing it.  I haven’t enjoyed a Sonic game since Knuckles on the Genesis (yeah, yeah, don’t get too angry at me, Dreamcast owners).  In Colors, I was running fast, smashing enemies, drifting turns, and avoiding Robotnik’s spring traps (they push you backwards and have Robotnik’s face on them as a warning).  This game takes Sonic back to basics, and it seems like Sega’s getting it right.  E3’s greatest surprise for me was that I enjoyed playing Sonic Colors.  Sonic fans, get ready, because you may just have a new great adventure to enjoy this fall!
