The controls are almost exactly the same as Mario Kart DS, except for the tricks you can do while in the air. However, you can get an All-Star move occasionally if you are in a really bad position. The All-Star move itself is varies, but each one is pretty much an invincible form that has super speed, smashes enemies, and sometimes attacks. Sega did a better job making each character unique than Nintendo did. The one mistake Sega made was making Opa-Opa to good. If the CPU is using Opa-Opa, you should probably quit and hope that Opa-Opa won't be an opponent when you try again. Oh yeah, Sonic and Sega also emphasizes drifting a lot.
The Grand Prix is pretty neat. They removed Mirror Mode, which is a good idea since, if your friend chooses regular in a multi-player race and you have been playing lots of Mirror, you will have trouble re-learning the courses, giving your friend an advantage. They shouldn't have removed the ratings, though, because they give the player something extra to work for. Plus, you will be rewarded the same whether you beat all of the Grand Prix on Hard or on Easy. The Grand Prix is not really the highlight of the game.
I haven't tried the Wi-Fi yet since the random opponent you're racing could make their account name anything they want.Read more ›
People were amazed by the graphics and gameplay. Hands down Mario Kart is a great game but it needed some improvement.
Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing just kicks Mario Kart in the face.
Graphics: The graphics are absolutely jaw dropping and the colors just really pop off the screen. I didnt expect too much especially coming from a Wii user. In my opinion they are better than Mario Kart.
Gameplay: The game runs very smoothly and there are no frame rate issues. The graphics arent pixelated like a lot of other DS games too.
Controls: A is Gas. B is brake. L is the item button, and R is for drifting. The controls work very well and are very similar to other racing games.
Tracks and Characters: Of course a cart racing game wouldn't be good without good tracks right? Tracks like "Whale Lagoon" and "Ocean Ruin" looks amazing on the DS. Although I do find some of the tracks to be short the majority of them are well constructed.There are 24 tracks
The game also has a "Missions" mode that lets you go on tracks with a certain objective. One can be to go through all of the rings in the selected time, collect all the rings, drift at high speeds, or just beat the race.There is also a single player mode which all you do is pick your character,track then your ready to race. Last but not least is the Grand Prix mode in which you enter a cup to win.
Overall i definately reccomend this game to anybody. It is truly a great game that will keep you playing for hours.
Bit of sarcasm aside, this game is basically what you would get if you combined Mario Kart with the concept of Super Smash Bros, except with Sega instead of Nintendo. You get characters and tracks based on series like Sonic, Super Monkey Ball, Jet Set Radio, Samba de Amigo, Alex Kidd, and the list goes on. You race in the Grand Prix, take on the many tracks individually, or partake in various different kinds of Challenges the courses have to offer. The works, really, and I'm not just saying that because that's what I expect out of the usual kart race; I literally mean it works fine as is.
If you've played Mario Kart before, you know exactly how this will work. Drive around an elaborate and colorful track (based on a game in this case), use items collected from item capsules scattered around the track to provide benefits and hinder opponents' progress. Dash panels are also around for extra boosts, but there will also be obstacles on the track that can act as items against you.Read more ›
