Unsurprisingly, the game plays like a total Mario Kart clone but then that is hardly a bad thing, especially considering that it manages to pull it off with aplomb. It is not as good as the rotund plumber's day-at-the-races outings but then, that almost goes without saying anyway. Much like those in the Mushroom Kingdom, the tracks are filled with weird and wacky power ups to add some pizzazz to proceedings and the raceways themselves are nicely designed and fun to navigate. The graphics are bright and sharp and run smoothly and the voice acting is surprisingly effective and non-irritating.
The character roster is quite interesting, with choices ranging from the obvious to the bizarre but I remain bitter that the developers were unable to include Toejam and Earl as had been rumoured.
Personally, I find the idea of playing a kart racer (or indeed any racing game) on the PC totally bizarre but if you are in the market for one then you could do a lot worse than scooping Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing while it's available at this price.
