    The game does just about everything right. Great graphics, universal app support, online play, solid controls; this is Sega's best game so far on the App Store, and is well worth a pickup for fans of kart racers and Sega's characters.

    An exhaustive and, more importantly, finely balanced release, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing offers up a watershed moment for karting on iPhone.

    With good controls and different play modes available, it's a massive, top quality game for iPhone and brilliant fun too. [Oct 2011, p.96]

    Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing on iOS is a perfect porting of the game appeared on bigger consoles like Xbox 360 and PS3. All the contents are there and the controls are perfectly fitted for the iPhone/iPad, making this the best choice for a simil-Mario Kart on iOS.

    Sonic And Sega All-Stars Racing is the most fun karting game on iOS, and an update taking care of those online hiccups can only make it more essential.

    Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing has all the best qualities that Mario Kart initiated years ago and features controls tailored to the portable iOS devices. As such, this is certainly one of the best iDevice racers you'll play this year.

    It's a playful light-hearted game, rather than a racing simulation and the characters and courses are based on Sonic and Sega game-worlds. Seriously, if you like Kart racers, just go download it.

    Despite the moments of frustration, it's a fun little game that works surprisingly well for a mobile SEGA port. That's good enough for me!

    It would be a disservice to call this a port or cash-in. Sega has proven that they're serious about making top-quality iOS games instead of just emulating relics. Plus, you can get Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing for a measly $1.99, making it one of the best deals on the App Store.

    A good looking portable kart racer that is fun in short bursts, but is ultimately hampered by its awkward control methods and lack of true creativity within the genre.

    A high-quality title. If you're a huge Sega fan, it's a fun trip down memory lane through games you thought Sega forgot like Jet Grind Radio, Crazy Taxi and Space Channel 5. If that last sentence makes no sense to you, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a good but flawed racing experience.

    Whether you're scraping by in your banana in a spooky mansion or throwing your motorbike around a Mexican musical wonderland, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars approaches 'whacky' from a different angle and succeeds in this fun kart racer.

    It's an outstanding experience regardless of which control scheme (tilt, virtual slider) you use. Kudos to Sega for releasing such an excellent port that instantly became the best kart racer on the App Store.

    With smooth controls, impressive visuals, a huge variety of race modes to choose from, a good number of characters and tracks to unlock, and challenging AI in later levels, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing provides the best kart racing experience on the App Store.

    The most polished Mario Kart clone to date, SEGA's best-known characters take to the track with an impressive wealth of content that should keep gamers busy for some time.

    Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing is a cute, fun kart racer that's difficult enough for adults to enjoy, but innocent enough for kids to pick up play.

    What Sega have done here is amazing. They've certainly created the best kart racer on the App Store by far and Sonic & Sega All-stars Racing is truly a fitting gift for Sonic's 20th Anniversary.

    Sonic is back on track, setting a new standard for kart-based games on iPhone and iPad. Even if its audio/visual package is a long way from the current leading examples on iPhone, the game is well polished and balanced, resulting in great single- and multiplayer fun.

    So let me get this straight, this game got a composite score of '75' when reviewed for the '360, but now gets an '89' from the IOS reviewers?
    Something tells me the professional review Sphincters have been drinking the Apple toilet water they're being fed from Jobs.
    These Apple reviews are disgraceful.

    Fantastic conversion of a fantastic kart racer! A must buy! Thanks Sega and Thanks Sumo for treating this with the respect it deserves. I've a feeling this is going to be my most played app for a while.... Full Review »
