Sonic Colors Review

Sonic Colors was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2010.  Developed by Sonic Team, Colors came out at a time when Sonic’s reputation was heavily damaged by Sega releasing several critically panned titles such as Sonic 06 and Sonic and the Black Knight.  Sonic Team wanted to get back to basics to make the most of the weak hardware.  Let’s see if Sonic Colors can change my view of the franchise.

Donkey Kong Country Review

In 1994, Nintendo bought 49% of the British developer Rareware.  Rare was known for NES games Battletoads and Wizards and Warriors.  This acquisition made Rare a second party developer exclusively for Nintendo.  For Rare’s first game under the new deal, Nintendo recommended they make a new series involving Donkey Kong.  Donkey Kong Country was released to widespread acclaim and established Rare as one of the premier game developers of the 1990s.
