- Summary: In a frantic battle to the checkered flag, Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in medieval castle ramparts, lush rainforests and bustling cities, all taken from the visually rich and varied universes of Sonic and SEGA. Fan favorites such as Dr. Eggman, Tails, AiAi, Amigo and many more will join Sonic in their custom built vehicles, revving their engines and jostling to stay ahead of the pack. Each character will speed around the track in cars, planes, motorbikes, and in Aiai’s case – a banana mobile! Secret short cuts, swift handling and avoiding strategically placed obstacles are certainly the best way to get to the top of the podium. But winning is only part of the fun in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing! Each character has a specific All Star move – such as Super Sonic, Banana Blitz and Tails Tornado – that allows a quick way for competitors to get back into the race! Power ups and weapons can also be collected around the tracks and used against the opposition to ensure they don’t become a threat to that number one position. [Sega]… Expand

Nov 23, 2010Sega attempts a heavily modified Sonic Drift title, is it fun and worth the money?
The game's racer roster contains 20 characters with 7 of them being from Sonic games, the characters behave slightly different on the DS version in comparison to the console versions and any group of racers that would normally share a vehicle are cut so that only one person is in each vehicle.
There is a decent amount of tracks but some look a little too similar to each other and comes off as looking a bit lazy overall. The game consists of a mission mode to go along with the single player, multiplayer, Wifi and Time Trial modes. The game has many unlockables such as hidden characters and new music. For people who like chasing achievements, the DS version has this as well surprisingly enough. The game itself plays in a manner similar to Mario Kart DS but with some different weapons, racing mechanics and other things that make it unique in comparison.
Although the game is fun, after completing mostly everything in the game, not even the Wifi multiplayer mode will save the game from eventually getting boring.
Overall, it is a decent racing game starring the characters of the Sega and Sonic universes but isn't as good or as memorable as Mario Kart DS.… Expand
