I'm writing this review because I feel like I have to do my part to get this game out into more people's hands, because it is a great game.

If you want a racing game that doesn't just try and match Mario Kart, but goes beyond what Mario Kart does, then this is your game.

The handling is smooth. The game is CHALLENGING. The tracks are beautiful and creative. The weapons system is intuitive.

If you like Kart racing, do yourself a favor, pass by Little Big Planet Karting 2 and just get this one.

The original All-Stars was a very enjoyable (albeit deriative of Mario Kart) cart racing experience, and was the title that got my son into gaming. The sequel while having the right intentions, is a bit of a miss in some areas. First off, the career mode is more focused on mini game style challenges then actual races, and the new boat and flying segments are abit forced. Don't get me wrong they defiitely switch things up, but they don't control as smoothly and too many invisible barriers (especially while flying) tend to destroy the illusion of freedom the extra modes would entail. Plus, it's a scripted thing when the tracks dictate, not an at will thing. I also dislike the layout for the world tour which branches out in all directions family tree style. It works, but far too cluttered for my taste. Visually in alot of ways I feel the original trumps this. The original was very colorful, fast, and detailed.This one looks decideably low-res at times, almost like it was designed for standard definition Wii standards. (Even though there is no Wii version go figure.)
All that said, this is still one of the better Kart games and definitely worth a rent to see how you feel about, especially for the 360 since there is so few options available. Now if only we could get Banjo and Kazooie in here again like the original....
