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

    Ultimately a great arcade racing game that celebrates Sonic's 20th anniversary on iOS. A bit pricey, but worth it.
  2. A fun racing game if you have family or friends to play it with.

    How can someone forget to add online multiplayer to game based on the competitiveness of a player we don't understand. The equation with this game is simple, more players = more fun. [Issue#190]

    A few performance issues mar an otherwise fun little racer. [Aug 2010, p.87]

The graphics (which give you an incredible setup) are superb, the sound is much better than most, and gameplay is awesome! The ability to split screen with another person is unique to pc players too. If you can find this for a really low price like I was fortunate to have? Grab it quick! You won't be disappointed at all!! The sense of racing is marvelous! Expand

    It's a Mario Kart clone, yes, but a very good one! The power-ups are good, and it *feels* like Mario Kart. There are lots of Sega characters,It's a Mario Kart clone, yes, but a very good one! The power-ups are good, and it *feels* like Mario Kart. There are lots of Sega characters, but the real stars of this game are the tracks, which are as crazy and dizzying as you'd expect for a Sonic game. In fact, I think it tops the Mario Kart series in that respect; Mario Kart's tracks were never truly clever like this. The single player is a lot of fun. After you beat the basic game, there are lots of challenge races you can use to get points and gain access to more cars/tracks.

    Visually, it's nice-looking game, though the cartoony style means it isn't too flashy. Much of what impresses visually is again the creativity of the levels, as opposed to the raw detail. Despite what another reviewer said, performance was excellent. I have a pretty low/mid system (HD5750) and got 60fps constant for the most part with AA and AF on through my video card's settings.

    The biggest selling point for me? It features 4-player split-screen (on PC!), which is a blast. It has native support for 360 controllers, just plug 4 of them in to your PC. There is no online multiplayer, but I didn't miss it. A game like this is best enjoyed as local multiplayer, and split-screen is such a rarity on PC that it's more of a selling point to me than online would be.

    Overall, a very fun game. You just don't get games like this on PC very often, and I really enjoyed it. Don't overlook it!

While geared more towards family entertainment an individual can enjoy this as well. The tracks are a blast as well as the overall gameplay. Racing controls and mechanics are spot on also. Reminds me of the old days of N64 when games were just a blast to play. The whole family will love it. Especially happy to see split screen on the pc. So many games lack split screen support on the PC while this retains it. People just don't realize that lots of gamers have there PCs hooked up to actual HD TVs with this new invention called an HDMI cable. PCs also have the ability to use 360 controllers, and PS3 controllers, and tons of other gamepads, both wireless and wired. I appreciate developers retaining all aspects of gameplay in the PC versions of their games. Expand

    Well when it comes down to it there really aren't a lot of racing games like this available these days; especially enjoyable ones… So I'm kindWell when it comes down to it there really aren't a lot of racing games like this available these days; especially enjoyable ones… So I'm kind of thankful this game was released on PC. I must admit I'm not a racing game (or kart racing game) lover, but I do enjoy the occasional dabble in these fun “wacky” sort of adventures! Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing doesn't really bring anything new to the genre it’s fundamentally race people, find power up’s, use power up’s on enemy’s, win race… Ta-Dah! I did like the system for unlocking new characters and arenas but the missions do get unbelievably repetitive and by number 50 you will have had enough! Expand
