Sonic & Sega All Star Racing

Is anyone getting this? Looks like it could be fun and it's only £30.



You get to race as Ryo from Shenmue on his forklift

Well this is being developed by Sumo Digital who know how to make really fun racing games so I'll be inclined to go with this than Modnation by a long shot.

I almost don't want to buy it now seeing that, knowing those morons are somehow involved.

Looks great!

Considering the Mario Kart games (GC &Wii) are my favorite racers ( I really don't enjoy anything vaguely realistic), this is a definite purchase for me.

Not sure whether to get this on Wii or 360 though!

This looked like good fun on Playr but the above video has put me off a bit.

"Just call me Sonic". Why, 'cause that's your name asshole? It's alright, looks nice enough (though the framerate seems slightly off to me at times) and has good music which is lifted straight out of Sega All-star tennis. You can choose from Sonic and Banjo, although I didn't really notice any great difference between them, save for their special attacks. Biggest issue for me is the brake system. The controls are very simplistic and there's only one brake type, which likes to skid pretty mean around corners. Would have been nice to use a left trigger to slow down a little and have a button for hand brake as well. I imagine this will drop in price very quickly, at which point I may pick it up.

It didn't blow me away and as above the framerate could have been better. That kind of game really needs a solid 60fps. Felt better than Modnation Racers , I thought. Maybe at £20.

It's a bit ridiculous with what can be achieved in other games, yet in a game such as this they can't get a nice speedy framerate out of it. Sadly, only a few developers seem interested in honing their craft, others just get asked to churn out multi-console stuff like this.
