Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is a game full of crazy kart racing action. You can choose from 20 Sega characters from several Sega games, like Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Monkey Ball, Jet Set Radio and even some appearances from classic Sega games like Alex Kidd, Fantasy Zone and even Ryo Hazuki from Shenmue. The 360 version has the additions of a certain bear and bird combo plus the ability to use your Avatar in races too.
There are 24 courses to race on from about 7 different Sega franchises, each with several music tracks and hidden shortcuts, Scattered around these tracks are power ups that will be useful during a race. Every character has an All-Star Move, a powerful move that can be used to get ahead of the competition. Sonic goes Super Sonic, Amigo makes a conga line and Billy Hatcher rolls in on a giant egg.
The game has several modes including the kart racer standards Grand Prix, Time Trial and Mission Mode, but also includes online play. The online play is smooth and is tons of fun. There is a lack of All-Star Moves in online play, so it's not as easy to catch up to others.
In conclusion, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is a great game for those who want the best kart racer on 360, or just really like Sega. It's a bit harder than the usual Mario Kart, but I think us TrueAchievers can take a little extra challenge, right?
