Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Review by LockAndLuke

Well, what can I say other than sheer brilliance?

The Sega version of Crash Team Racing, and we all loved that right?

I first got my hands of this nice little game when I was browsing a list of pre-owned games at my local GAME store, £20 I thought why not? It's Sonic my favourite game character of all time, and the Sega cast which is damn right fantastic.

The controls for this game are simple and easy to pick up in a heartbeat, simplistic racing game with a huge addiction that you pick up, even the newest people to games like this will see how easy it is to manoeuvre your way through the course dodging and attack foes with an awesome arsenal of weaponry.

Brilliant, plays like an arcade racer, feels like an arcade racer, all in a 360 on disc title.

I adore the graphics on this game, every time you play the game you feel a sort of nostalgia and feel as though you've seen the graphics before, but they look polished.

Where do I start, the characters are from my childhood, which makes them simply brilliant, ranging from Sonic the Hedgehog to Ryo Hazuki.
The courses in the game are taken from other Sega titles, such as Sonic Heroes and Super Monkey Ball.

The game features a shop mode where you can (state the obvious) buy extra characters, courses and music.
