Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing takes racing to the next level. While people have complained it's like Mario Kart, I don't believe it. First of all, Mario Kart uses only Mario characters, so you know what to expect, and this game uses characters old and new from the whole company. The amount of characters surpasses Mario Kart (I like Sonic better, but some of you may think differently.). Second, this game actually has a unique power-up for each character. If I had to choose the game with better online support, it'd be Mario Kart because this game has online, but there was a glitch that doesn't let you use All-Star moves. The items are not very inspired though. Overall, you should get this game, but one more thing. Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is coming (Not for the DS or Wii, but for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and 3DS. This game lets you basically have three races in one! There's more characters, stages, and items. If you want to test out a good racing game, get the first one, or if you love Sonic, both games are good.

First of all, I know what your're thinking... "This is just a cheap knock-off of Mario Kart Wii", right? Well you couldn't be more wrong! This game does use some of the elements of Mario Kart but it also brings some new elements to the table like all-star moves and a fearce online multiplayer mode. It also lets you customize the music on the tracks by buying it from the Sega Store using your Sega Miles you get from races. The tracks range from Sonic to Monkey Ball. The character selection is fantastic! From Sonic to AiAi to even Ulala, there is sure to be a racer for everyone in this game. The all-star moves spice up the race in new ways that let each individual character show off their own unique racing style. So overall, this is a great game that while it contain some elements from Mario Kart Wii, it brings a new, creative brand of racing that is sure to be enjoyed by all racing fans.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Big Boss Man This is better than Mario Kart Wii
My favorite video game to date was Mario Kart Wii. Ever since I bought the PS-3 I sorely missed not being able to play Mario Kart because my Wii was broken and I missed being able to able to play Crash Bandicoot Kart racers because the PS3 doesn't play PS2 games. All of that went away after playing this game. Yes it is a rip off of Mario Kart but what could you expect from a Kart racing game, they are all about the same. This game is truly awesome. Mario Kart has nothing on this game. This game is pure fun all the way. The graphics are perfect. The creators of this game took Mario Kart and made it better. The online racing is even more fun. If you even remotely like playing kart racing games you have to buy this game. This will not be one of those games you will regret you spent money on.
Rated 9 out of 10 by blackfang21 Just Like Mario Kart
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is basically just mario kart with sonic characters. no exaggeration. each character gets their own car, and there are multiple maps to play on. also (like mario party) it has weapon "bubbles" that give you things like super speed, caution cones(banana peels from mario kart), rockets(mario kart), chaos emeralds(bullet bill), etc. some of the charcters you get are sonic, knuckles, amy, shadow, billy the egg hatcher, doctor robotnik, tails, and more. gameplay is smooth and fun. you also earn stars when you race, which you can purchase characters with. there is also a "license plate", which keep the amount of miles you've raced. you can compete with other players with who has the most miles. theres not much to say because, well, thats it.
Rated 1 out of 10 by GameReporter SUCKS
First of you can't pick who you want driving the motorcycle or car or whatever car so sonic can only drive one car which is the Sonicmoble. Plus the level sucks. Your mii doesn't have an all star move and your mii's car is ugly so basically your gonna be last unless you got skill. And you have to BUY people from the store. And multiplayer mode makes no sense. And all-star move on last about 12 seconds so if your in last well boo-hoo, they give all-star when your in last anyway. The game has no replay. Plus the missions are horrible. Save your money on the game products below. And i have the game for wii only so if you have this for any other console and your experienced everything i wrote than give it back to GameStop.

This game is realy good thats kind of wierd beacuse after all the bad sonic raceing games they finaly made a good one.to begin with there is no story mode what so ever which is not realy a bad thing because they replaced it with missions which are races that give you tasks to complete. racing is super fun its has a kind of mario kart feel but its better in its own way. The graphics are amazing the maps have such bright color and shine the cars are also stunning. I like the fact that you can buy charecters insted of unlocking them you buy them buying earning sega miles. there are a total of 24 maps. overal its a great game thx for reading if u deside to buy request me on psn gamer8251998
Rated 10 out of 10 by Bangcrashboom Amazing Game
When i first heard about Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing I was stoked. I began looking up gameplay and was instantly intrigued. I then finally got the game and popped it into my system. This game is one of the best racers of it's type. I'm sure many people think that it's a cheap knock off of mario kart, but its not. It's actually alot better in my opinion. It's the same style of play and has some of the same elements of the game, but it is approached differently. Each character has all star moves that help you come back from a losing race. On top of all of that, the trophies on this game are quiet easy if you like to earn trophies. The price for this game is worth it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by BrandonZ Only getting it becasue Ryo Hazuki is in it
Yeah!!! I cannot wait for this game. Mostly at first I did not really want to buy this game at first because it just looked like another sega sports game like sega all star tennis but then I SAW IT today. I saw Ryo Hazuki on his motorcycle in this game. Then I saw him on a fork lift smashing the other players. After that I said "I am buying this game at launch. I mostly am buying this also to support shenmue so come on everyone, make this a best seller so shenmue 3 will be released already. Also sega please release shenmue 1 and 2 on psn.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GamerBryan Good but...
This game is a good racing game that you can enjoy with your family and friends, but it just doesn't have good replay value. After you unlock everything you just don't have anything to work for. Online is fun for awhile, but that gets dull too. At least there is an online feature and people actually still play online because if there wasn't playing against computers would get old fast. Get this game if you like sonic and friends and like cartoonish racing otherwise pass on this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MadMax Worth every penny!!!
Took me by major surprise! Nintendo is usually the master of the kart racing, but after purchasing sega racing and playing it for a few hours ive come to realize that ive eaten my words. This game actually is a little better than the MK games. I love the layout for this game. The way the menu is set up and how you must win races to collect money to purchase new characters, courses and even classic music from the actual sega games was a great plus. Its done right and shows bigtime! For one the graphics are much better, playing kart racing in HD just cant be beat. Second its faster, it doesnt feel as slow as MK and the handling of the kart is very similiar to that of MK and also diddy kong racing. The developers actually said they were looking very hard at both of those games while making this one. Seriously, another big improvement are the courses. They are leaps better than MK courses. Dont get me wrong i love MK courses, but these are really better. For example, they took courses straight outta sonic adventure, jet grind radio and so on along with the original music. They really did it right! I played the demo and thought this game is good, not sure if its better than MK but good. Bought the game today and am blown away. Frame rate is fine and just looks incredible! Dont see any framerate issues. If you are a fan of this type of game you owe it to yourself to buy this game. Believe me man, i was gonna buy heavy rain today. I picked this over heavy rain for gods sakes. Its a frikin blast and online works great, no lag and quite a few people to play against!
