Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing for Wii Accessibility Review
10 September 2010
Excerpt: 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 named Ulala would win any dance-off, of course. But besides these 20 corky characters, you get fast racing karts and crazy weapons that cause your other racers to spin and slide out of the lead.

Fast, furious, fun family-friendly kart racing at its best.

Summary: Parents need to know that Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing contains cartoony violence that falls into the comic mischief category. Players jostle each other while on the track, and flatten one another with over-sized hammers and giant eggs, although no one is ever hurt. Play is suitable for all ages, but the game has an option for unsupervised online chat during play on Xbox and PS3. a feature that Common Sense Media does not advise for kids under 12.
Excerpt: It's true that Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing is incredibly similar in terms of game design to a certain other kart racing series. While Mario Kart rules the racing roost, with sales to back it up, SEGA's been making arcade-style racing games since the dawn of time (well, the 1980s).
Conclusion: Les mauvaises langues n'hésiteront pas à évoquer la trop grande ressemblance avec Mario Kart. Certes, on retrouve dans ce Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing nombre de similitudes mais aussi nombre de différences. Sega ne s'est pas contenté de coller ses licences sur un modèle pré-établi mais l'a retravaillé à sa manière en y ajoutant des aspects très personnels.
Pros: Circuits délirants, Le côté inédit, Nouveaux challenges, IA compétitive
Cons: Quelques chutes de framerate, La voix off exécrable
Excerpt: is, to date, one of the most popular racing games and without a doubt one of the most accessible. It only seems right that other companies would try to imitate the not-so-serious formula and add a few twists.
