Whether you're an old-school Sonic fan or one who's new to the hog's adventures, Sonic Colours looks set to cut fans' feelings right down the middle with its blend of high-speed platforming, multiplayer action and range of power-ups. The game's producer and head of Sonic Team, Takashi Iizuka, has said in an interview the game is an indication of the future path Sonic games will take.

SPOnG: Is it safe to say then, that future Sonic titles will have the same kind of colourful, simple, laid-back feel that Sonic Colours has?

Takashi Iizuka: Yes, that's the vision that I have.

Iizuka believes the Sonic series has become too serious, what with nocturnal transformations and so on, and wants to bring Sonic back to the high speeds and bright colours of his heyday. We'll have to wait and see if Sonic Colours is a step in the right direction for the blue one, but if going forward the series features fewer hedgehogs with guns then we'll be satisfied
