Have your say

WOW, there seems to be no shortage of karting racers descending upon consoles this season.

Here Sonic and the All-Stars cast battle it out for supremacy across land, water and air in transforming vehicles that have the interesting ability of being able to change from cars to boats to planes mid-race.

It’s certainly an interesting twist to throw into the genre, and makes for some truly inspirational track design when you’re not bound by only asphalt.

A cannily-constructed career mode also builds your skill set by offering different difficulty settings across all kinds of race type, from traditional races to drift and boost challenges or combat-heavy encounters.

Power-ups are innovative and unique enough to not feel like straight lifts from other karting classics, and the title draws upon Sega’s rich history of gaming heroes, far-reaching beyond lead character Sonic.

All in all, it’s a great arcade race that you should definitely perform a pit-stop for on your next shopping trip.
