First off I want to say that I am not a Sonic fan nor really of racing games, yet I loved this game.
This game reminds me of Mario Kart, it has alot of elements which need to be mentioned:
The level design is great and very creative which also keeps the game from getting dull.
Bots have great difficulty adjustments, you will have to work up your skill and learn the game before you can win against the harder AI.
The graphics is clear and beautiful with a high definition cartoony smoothed out look, which runs smooth, and should run even on low end machines.
The vehicle handling in this game is incredible feels like a real arcade game
Fairly balanced customizable characters to choose from heaps from which you will recognise, each having their own vehicle look and transformation which is a nice touch.
COOP CAMPAIGN (This is something I haven't seen done much, and it is one of the features which I had the most fun and makes this game stand out from other games in general).
The campaign itself is very creative with having modes I have never seen doen before like 'Traffic Attack' (reaching checkpoints dodging traffic) 'Drift mode' (drift on marks on the ground that give you extra time to reach the end) 'Versus' (Go head to head against waves of bots and take them out or get ahead of them before they take you out) 'Boost challenge' (drive over the boost marks on the ground to reach the end before time runs out). So many more.. But what makes this better is that you can do all this with your friends together and unlock new maps and characters which keeps you locked in the game trying to beat bosses and progress through the campaign.
The transformation with the kart, to boat, to air vehicle works great and just makes the game more original.
A game you should definately play split screen with friends and one you can challenge yourself to reach your All Star potential. 9/10
