    Yeah the looks of the game were fine but as you know in the end gameplay is most inportant and this game just wasnt very fun in my opinion :(

    Like minds, mate - my thoughts 100%

    Cheating rubberbanding AI is shocking on the 3000cc races.

    The time trials are definitely do-able - I did 3 golds yesterday without a massive amount of effort - but the gold times are brutal.

    If they allowed an extra second on each of the tracks for a gold time trial I reckon it would be much fairer given some of the track layouts and the variables that can come into play.

    They got Hamilton 100%. Looks like a total fanny, just like real life!

    Three kart racers released within 10 days of one another..... (one is on ps3, but still)

    The superior kart racer this year is clearly Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed.

    LittleBigPlanet Karting & F1 Race Stars have been left in the dust.
    SEGA FAN FOREVER...!!!!!!!

    Yeah, from the demo I played, it was a very poor imitation of Mario Kart. Agree with 2 out of 5.

    I'm disappointed by all the reviews I've seen/read of this. I was hoping it was going to really good but now I'm not so sure if I will bother with it, even as a super cheapie.
    After recently playing JoyRide Turbo I'm keen for another kart racer, but maybe Sonic would be my best option going by other people's opinions and the reviews...
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    This looked like a promising game, but all in all it is just pure frustration.

    I played the demo with my kids and it looked promising, may have to have a look at Sonic then.

    The time trials on this sound like the time trials on sonic all-stars racing transformed. I beat easy, medium, and hard ghosts in 1 attempt, but those expert ghosts...

    So far I'v only managed to beat 1! shock

    Played the demo at Eurogamer and hated it. Just got bored so quickly. I was prepared to give it another go but looks like my first impressions were correct. Shame.

    I'm gonna have to disagree with the reviewer. This game is fun, especially when you play splitscreen with one or more people. Yes those powerups are annoying at times but that's what kart racing is all about no?

    KERS might be useless in single player but in multiplayer splitscreen with friends you have a chance.

    I found it fun and addictive (Especially the multiplayer!), but I do agree with the "I'm rubber, you're glue" Section, I find that frustrating, I hate being the only driver not getting the correct lines.
    However, I believe Codemasters will be doing a patch in a future as there are suggestions flooding through their Facebook Page.
    Give it a chance, at least multiplayer is free with no online pass required!

    I agree with W8taminute1941, in splitscreen with other players it's a laugh a minute. The only problem is my daughter keeps beating me.

    Blimey, Lewis Hamilton looks to be even more big-headed in this game than he is in real life. I thought that was almost impossible....
