This game is not too bad. It is also,sadly,not that great. The tracks are pretty good,the racers are ok. It is more fun to play alone than with a friend or friends though. 1 player can play the grand prix to race four different tracks to get the cup. However,unlike Mario Kart, multiplayer can only race one track at a time against one another. Multiplayer also has Item battles...meaning you see who can collect more items on some tracks. It is not anywhere near as fun as Mario Kart. While racing there is an anouncer who voices over the race. You can get a special power up,but only if you are last or close to last in the race. The power ups are ok but not too great. Also,I have to mention the online play. First of all,unlike Mario Kart online,once you are in a room,you don't get to vote for what tracks you want to race. It just picks for you and it picks only the first four tracks that you race in the game. Also,if there aren't that many people in the room to play,it puts in computer controlled characters agains you. Also not as competitive feeling as Mario Kart online. Bottom line is this: they got it right with Mario Kart and anything else will never compare and will be just a cheap copy,no matter what characters are in it. Unless they come out with another Mario Kart,with newer tracks and keep the wonderful online play that it has.
If your a a sonic fan like me you probably were like "well it was okay." Also The Gf rating on this game was higher than sonic and the black night. I really don't understand that, but I'm a sonic fan so I usually don't like weird sonic games like this. Its basically Mario cart with Sega characters. There is no plot, You can only get your characters final power up(such as if you were sonic you could turn into super sonic) if your in last place which i found kinda dumb, and there were only six sonic characters. I get that its sonic and SEGA, but I was hoping for more sonic characters. There's really no motivation to race. You might rent this if you have like 3 friends over, but other than that I find no reason to get this game.
