GET IN A SPIN.. Advertisement feature.

Sonic is back in all his threedimensional glory in Sonic Colours for the Wii, which the critics are already saying is the hedgehog's best 3D platforming adventure in a decade.

Sonic and Tails are on the trail once again of the wicked Dr Eggman, who claims to be going straight, making intergalactic theme parks for the whole galaxy to enjoy. But when Sonic finds out that Eggman is harnessing the powers of helpless aliens to build a mind-control beam, it's up to Sonic to stop him.

Mixing 3D levels with 2D segments, in Sonic Colours players can harness the power of the alien Wisps to boost speed, drill through the ground, hover and stick to walls and onto ceilings, upside down.
