Yesterday I saw the first sonic colors commercial here on dutch television, replacing epic mickeys constant anoying commercial. It was pretty awesome because we haven't had sonic commercials since sonic heroes.

It looked very appealing as well. I really have a lotta faith in this one sales wise

I'm a bit behind in posting, because it took me a while to play the Wii version.

First off, I was surprised how the menus were basically set up the exact same way as the DS version. The music tracks were all pretty similar too (sounded great on the Wii though).
Overall, I thought it was a fantastic game. The level length, and design was spot on. It was nice to have a few of those shorter ones thrown in too. It just would've been nice if there were a couple more planets.  Still, there were more acts than the DS version.  I was pretty thankful to have extra acts instead of the insanely tough missions from the DS.  

The DS boss fights were a lot tougher, but I'm still undecided on which ones I prefer. It would've been nice if there as a bit more variety in the boss fights.
Looking forward to the next console Sonic game.

Does the DS version reuse boss fights?

Not as much as the Wii version. The Wii version basically has 3 different boss fights, with a second remix version for each.  The ferris wheel, the obstacle course/bouncing guy, and the flying robot chase.  The DS version has a bit more variety.  There's also a secret boss after Eggman in the DS game.

Actually, the DS version also has 3 different boss fights and then "remixes" them. The "remixed" bosses are slightly more varied than in the Wii version though.
The only extra boss the DS version has is the Super Sonic boss.

I was just a bit surprised that the Wii version ended when it did after playing through the game on DS.  Still a great game though.

Try going through Challenge mode till the end. I apreciated the game a lot more when I tried finishing the game classic style. It's that same feel where you're looking forward to that next stage. Some being awesome, some being more platforming orientated etc.

It's the perfect mode that should be in every sonic game if you ask me. Whenever I want to replay the game I do challenge mode most of the time.

I'll have to give them a shot. I'm just busy with other games now. The backlog just got bigger after Christmas :(.

Do you actually unlock anything from playing through Challenge Mode?

On it's own, it's just a mode that goes from the first stage to the last without any interference. But if your a leaderboard guy, you can also upload your high score after going through it at least once.

You do not unlock anything with it.

You do not even get to bring over your red rings to your main save file if you find any new ones... That kind of sucks.

I lurk Sonic Retro every now and then...

Kind of surprised at the amount of secrets they find. Especially the extended acts and secret second goal rings using glitches.
