    This is a great little racer with a whole host of great characters and vibrant, memorable courses that keep the player smiling throughout the races.
  2. For better or worse, you may want to try the game out because it has its enjoyable moments. Just be warned that kart racers already on the market like Mario Kart Wii are far superior.

Now the graphics are nice and crisp, the game looks very good, the game controls great as well! Though if you're used to Mario Kart, it could take a bit of getting used to, as the controls are somewhat different.

    Also borrowing from Sonic riders is a simplified trick system. And by Trick, I mean rotating in the air, But the more you rotate, the better the speed boost. The game has online racing that is on par with Mario Kart, but I suggest you stay away from it unless you get really good at the game. Because unlike Mario Kart, there are a lot of different, well, I'll call them exploits for lack of a better term, that people use that I don't even know about.

    The game has a two different unlock systems based on what you are trying to unlock. "Mods" Are unlocked by doing well in races. But just beating a bunch of races will aid as well. These "Mods" Change how your character races slightly. Like it can increase their speed, but slow their accelerate for example. Another example is it can slow them down, but help with their turning.

    For unlocking characters, you must play though the challenge mode. Where you, of course, have to complete various challenges to unlock characters. You will unlock the characters faster if you play on harder difficulties, but will get to them faster if you play on easier difficulties.

    Speaking of speed, the races often can last up to 5 minutes, at least at my skill level. And I wouldn't say I'm bad at racing games at all.

    The music is mostly comprised of remixes of past games, but these remixes are very good! Not as good as remixes in brawl, but fairly decent on their own accord.

    Overall, I'd say this game is worth buying, especially on the PC where it's the cheapest.

    While not as fun as Mario kart it is fun to play all of your favorite characters from past Sega games and the courses are unique too. OneWhile not as fun as Mario kart it is fun to play all of your favorite characters from past Sega games and the courses are unique too. One thing I don't like though is that even this a game made by Sega there are too many sonic characters. Full Review »

There are really good 2 player combos such as battles and racing. The races are fantastic. You win game coins and you buy the characters. My favourite characters are Opa Opa and Sonic. They are basically the best characters for racing. The tracks are fun and there are really cool stunts you can do. Full Review »
