Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (Wii)

 

If you're trying to determine who the greatest Sega character of all time is, it's going to be pretty difficult to devise a competition in which Ulala and Sonic are on even ground. The Space Channel 5 star would win any dance-off (not even Michael...

In the running for the throne. Over the years the kart racing genre has been dominated by a certain plumber that seems to be the only one who knows how...

Great track design ; Tons to see and do ; Fluid controls ; Lots of SEGA charm

Lack of online modes ; Minor slowdown

Sonic and his Sega chums take on the Mario Kart juggernaut. How do they fare?

Easy to pick up and play ; Fun new characters in a kart racer ; Very accessible ; Buckets of replay value ; Cons ; Controls feel wrong for Mario Kart fans ; Looks like a 360 or PS3 game played on a Wii ; Too balanced ; Lack of Bayonetta kart

The best Mario Kart since Double Dash stars... Sonic.

Amazing variety of tracks and racers, Sega nostalgia out the wazoo, emphasis on speed and skill over ?rubber band AI

Obnoxious announcer, rather obvious cribbing from Mario Kart's design

This is a very tight little package. The single player mode is incredibly meaty (missions and the three levels of grand prix will keep you busy for days, easily), with plenty of unlockables and goodies, and the multiplayer racing is smooth and fun as...

With a dab of Mario Kart and a dab of OutRun, Sumo Digital has created a fun racing game that will make Big the Cat say "Goodie."

Fun, easy-to-pick-up gameplay ; Mission mode is full of variety ; Lots of Sega nostalgia

Have to unlock tracks for multiplayer ; No GameCube controller support

I still hate the tiny, boring maps. My only beef with Mario Kart Wii's battle modes is that they're built for 12 people. I'd rather play MK64's battle maps than either game's supply. And I can easily, thanks to Virtual Console! But let's stop...

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing (Wii) Review

 

Sega for over a decade has had a fascination with racing games; they always pushed to explore new realms with games such as Sonic R and Sega Rally. Today we have a new racer bringing generations of Sega characters together.

Next is the level design. When we played the first levels, we thought the game was aiming for an average market, but as we progressed we found those like the casino the Samba level drove the creativity through the roof. Running through what seems like...

A prettied-up Mario Kart with imaginative tracks... and no blue shell!

Cool mission mode ; Some fan-pleasing characters ; Great track design

The commentator should be shot ; Some obscure unlockable characters ; The weapons are a bit lame

It’s a close race between SASASR and Mario Kart, and far from choking on Nintendo’s dust, Sonic and co. clock in a respectable second place. This shouldn’t reflect poorly on the game however. So far, this generation has been dominated by serious racing...

Smooth controls and a bunch of awesome tracks make this an exciting kart racer.

Tight controls with a great sense of speed ; Well-designed courses with lots of variety ; Good mix of characters, from the popular to the obscure ; Racing against friends, online or offline, is a blast ; Great visual style with a steady frame rate

Online play is limited to just racing ; No way to play through Grand Prix with a friend

Has Sonic finally, properly ripped off Mario's kart career? Well, it's as close as he's ever gotten.
