Summary: It's like a mario kart. But... It's faster, and items are less fun. Also characters seem to have lame personality gestures. However, the car transformation is very fun and transitions are smooth to boot. Compared to Mario kart, this game seem to have more visceral paced racing with funky sega characters. If you like Mario kart, you will like this game; if you don't mind the faster paced gameplay. Solid gameplay controls as well.
