Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing
It will be awesome.
I am a fan of Mario and Sonic, Mario Kart Wii was a relly fun racing game, aspecially the wifi capabilities, but it needed the charecter's specific item like in Mario Kart Double Dash(Mario, fire balls; Yoshi, giant egg). Unlike in this game, it does have the charecter's specific super star move(Sonic, Super Sonic; Tails, Tornado), and since it has secret shortcuts each track, and the super star moves, every race will be a very close one. It has about 24 tracks to Sonic's Sea side hill to AiAi's jungle. The only bad side is that every game of it on differrent consoles are different. In Xbox360 it has a special charecter which is Banjo-Kazooie, and the same in the Wii, you can use your Mii or yor avatar on the Xbox360. The Nintendo DS and the PS3 are the same game, no special charectes in it. So chose wisely wich game your going to buy.
Looks cool. but...
It looks like it will be fun but it don't look like they have a far enough character selection from the Sega universe to really say Sega All Stars. The graphics look awesome but like I said where are iconic characters such as Rolf (Phantasy Star 2),Ecco the Dolphin,Axel(Streets of Rage),Shinobi, Ax Battler(Golden Axe) or Max(Shinning Force). Then again these characters may be hidden or they might not even be in the game at all but I think they put Sega where it is today as an iconic company. And plus with exception of the Sonic characters who are icons of Sega's greatness the others did not appear till Sega fell into being a third party company. Such as Monkey Ball,Samba de Amigo and anyone else to appear as Sega trademarks facing the fact that Genesis was the golden age of Sega.
Not going to work out
As a lot of preview buzz's say, this game will be better than mario kart. but mario kart has over 10 years of experience with there games. while sega made less than 10 racing games. and to the fact how some people said that everyone gets there own item and mario kart never gave their own items to their characters, in MKDD (Mario Kart Double Dash), every set of characters (2 partners that were originaly suppost to be partners, got there own item except for Donkey Kong and Diddy, Bowser and Bowser Jr. and King Boo and petty pirana. they used items everyone can use for a special item. This sega game is most likely gonna be like the rest of the Sega group games. you would might as well go spend your money on mario kart than this game, but thats my opinion
a very interesting arcade racer
This is one of the better attempts on the racing genre in a very long time and i mean a very long time.This brings memories of all the old sega games considering it has lots of old characters but the only characters in the roster that will be familiar to todays gamers will be the sonic characters but there are so many others such as ryo zobbika opa-opa aiai amigo and many more.The gameplay feels a little forced but the graphics are nice the music is great but really is dumb is the announcer who is so annoying "oops looks like aiai is having a monkey of a time" it doesn't kill the experience but it sure does make you want to mute your TV for all eternity.this is a great racer for all the sega fans of the 90's.
SONIC & SEGA ALL STAR RACING! Can't Wait!
Hey Everyone, I just wanted to say I cannot wait to this game comes out on Tuesday coming because I love the idea of a Sonic Racing game with also Sega Characters as well I think it's going to be fun I have the March Issue of Nintendo Power it talks about the game saying its a great game and it got an 8.0 so I think that is great score. I will be online and trying to unlock as much as I can at a time really think it will be fun though I am a mariokart fan which I love Wii version and the other mario kart games. This looks fun but doesn't look as good with online with just only 8 player mode no friend vs that just strange I hope to see that option. Well anyways I cannot wait to play the game. Enjoy.
This game was at the top of my list of "games to be bought" for my birthday in january. I got it and imediatly i was hooked. the compilation of all the charactors was amazing, but i still wonder why NiGHTS wasn't invovled? I never played that game much but i still know it was a famous SEGA game. The fact that Alex Kidd was brought to 3D was shocking in a good way and i hope it means they have plans for the original SEGA mascot. and they even had room for one of my favorites...Billy Hatcher!!!! I really wish they could have brought Banjo-Kazooie in like they did on the 360 version, Diddy Kong Racing was my 2nd favorite Nintendo 64 game behind Super Mario 64 (where they got there start not many people know that but its true)even ChuChu Pilots!!!! Also featuring Beat (Jet Set Radio) B.D. Joe (Crazy Taxi) AiAi (Super Monkey Ball) Amigo (Samba De Amigo) Bonanza Bros (Bonanza Bros.) And many many more. One of the best things is is you get "credits" from winning (and even losing) races and you buy extra tracks , charactors, and music that way instead of having to do any tasks er anything. Any way great game good online play unless its late at night of course (this isn't CoD where everyone plays at 75 hour or more intervels) great charactors, tracks and even music from the games (the best music is from Samba De Amigo of course). Great game must buy for Kart Racers and SEGA fans.
What did you expect "SEGA"
Great for SINGLE PLAYER who is into games of this genre. Please note this game does not compare with the experience you get with Mario Kart. As for someone who is looking for a multiplayer experience "I do not recommend". The multiplayer (racing) is not consecutive, you pick one race then its over.
Fun for Everyone!
This is one of my favorite games of all time that I recommend for everyone! Racing with friends, family, and yourself will never get boring! There are tons of fun characters and courses to play on and race on! You can even race online with people far and near! With some different racing modes that are all fun! And don't worry, If you get up out of your seat right now and go to your local game store and buy this game (Which you really should do right now) You'll still have a life! Now go buy this game!
Good game coming soon!
I dont think i know this game is going to rock because everyone loves a good ,fun and enjoyable Kart racing game. I know people are saying that sonic is copying mario but he's not its just another kart racing game adding to the hundreds of others like Crash tag team racing,Kirby Air ride ,Pacman world rally Etc. So what im trying to say is that this game will be awesome and i think you should get this game whether your a Sega -Sonic fan or not it will be fun.
Sonic back on track!
This game is shaping up to be pretty spectacular if all the recent interviews, previews and trailers have anything to say about it. The games balancing system has been tweaked so you won't be punished for playing well (unlike Mario Kart Wii) A steering wheel peripheral has been spotted, so steering controls are in and hopefully improved over the loose-feel & hard to control steering in Mario Kart Wii. Can't wait for February! I have to decide which version to buy :)
