9 November 2010

Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Even before reading this review, if you’re already thinking that this is just Mario Kart with Sega characters, then, well… you’re right. But in it’s defense, it’s actually quite good.
Excerpt: Super Mario Kart remains one of my favorite games of all time. I can play it at a moment's notice, have a total blast and keep doing so long after everyone else in the vicinity is ready to head to bed or work or whatever it is that normal people do.
Conclusion: Concept: Sonic encroaches upon Mario’s racing dynasty
Graphics: Courses are lively and teeming with color
Sound: The commentary made my ears bleed. Be sure to turn it off in options immediately
Playability: The classic controller works great, but the motion control is unreliable
Conclusion: Sonic and friends really put up a good fight and seem to have a solid basis for a kart racer. Unfortunately, things aren't fleshed out enough or expanded upon to make this the party racer of choice for most people.

Pros: Impressive roster of characters and tracks, Easy playability that’s easy to get to grips with, Combination of Grand Prix and mission modes vary gameplay well
Cons: Mediocre weapons hinder the SEGA back catalogue, Commentator filled with over-used one liners, Characters driving styles can either be incredibly similar to each other or completely useless in competitive racing
