The chances are, if you own a Nintendo Wii and are a fan of kart racer games, you will already have a copy of Mario Kart and may, quite reasonably, assume that you need no other such title. If however, you are starting to get a little tired of the same tracks and racers that have been with since what seems like time immemorial, then you could do a lot worse than to pick up Sonic Racing.
The next best price comes from Cool Shop who are selling the game for £24.28, meaning that you stand to save at least £6 by buying from HMV.
Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing borrows from a weird and wonderful selection of Sega titles to fill out its roster of , though they have managed to pull seven characters from the Sonic universe from out of somewhere. The Wii version also gives you the fun option of tackling the tracks as one of your Miis.
Make no mistake, Sonic Racing is a Mario Kart clone but it's a really good one, which, frankly, makes for a great gaming experience. There's plenty of power ups to keep things fun and help you on your way around the nice selection of tracks. The graphics are stylish and smooth and there's enough variation in the music and voice acting to ensure that it doesn't become too repetitive.
The single player will last you a while but it's the multiplayer that will see you coming back to Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing again and again.
