Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Xbox 360 Review
3 September 2014
Excerpt: It took until 2010 for SEGA to release their own answer to Mario Kart on consoles, and I’m sure many SEGA fans had waited years and years for such a thing to happen. In fact, could Nintendo have been inspired by SEGA’s racing series with their upcoming downloadable content for Mario Kart 8, which...
Excerpt: I was so stoked to find Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing on sale at Amazon. I was totally pumped when it arrived, and there was enough of a lull in shipments to be able to sit down and play this game. I was digging this game, and geeking out for quite a few hours.
Excerpt: Sonic, SEGA’s blue mascotte, has been living in the shadow of his eternal arch rival, Mario, for years already. Still both icons have joined hands for a series of games based on the recent Olympics.
Excerpt: Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing is the newest attempt at finding a roster spot in the kart-racing genre. Arcade racers have always had a substantial following from those who prefer wacky, over-the-top action to the more realistic simulators out there.

Excerpt: The first thing that will jump out at you is the awesome character set here. Now, I can’t say that I’ve played every Sega title over the years, but I’ve sure covered a lot of them. You’ll have a blast reminiscing as you try the different characters.

In a crowded sea of underwhelming mascot-filled kart-racers, all vying for Nintendo's spotlight, Sonic and the Sega crew make an admirable attempt to bring down the juggernaut with tantalizing...
Conclusion: A lot better than some people would give it credit for and a pleasant change from all the driving simulations out there at the moment. The fun may well be too short lived for most though, with only the most dedicated achievement hunters putting in the required time to unlock everything .
Excerpt: It comes with deep regret that Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing with Banjo and Kazooie decided to take a route that doesn’t appeal to all demographics. In the past, complaints arose when the Mario Kart franchise decided to opt for more drift-heavy gameplay with less concentration on shortcuts.
