For the longest time the Mario Kart franchise has been the one to beat among the newcomers to the kart racing genre, but All Stars Racing might have changed that. Sumo Digital has done an outstanding job with this game. The presentation is top notch, beautiful and diverse locales that even if you're not a SEGA kid you'll appreciate as they all are breathtaking in detail and fun to race through, most change in layout with each lap.
The music is excellent and fits the mood of the game perfectly.
Gameplay wise, the game feels balanced in the sense that your placing on the finish line depends more on your skill than luck and you can unlock a variety of "mods" for each racer so that every character has at least one viable build. The game is bets played with a Xbox 360 controller. My only complaint with the PC version is that in some really rare situations the game will not recognize the 360 controller, but all you have to do is erase the controller config file in My Documents SART folder and open the game again.

I enjoyed mario kart when I was younger but got bored over the years with the next games being more of the same. I bought Sonic Racing Transformed on sale and was amazingly surprised how good the gameplay is. The game has a lot of depth for an arcade racing game and the level design is for most tracks, superb. You can transformed as the name says and it helps keeping the game fresh. The light in the game is very well done and you won't suffer any lag on a middle ware machine. The soundtrack consist of various remix of previous Sega games in history and some of them as very well done. I suggest you play the game using an xbox360 controller or any other controller as long as you configure it properly (icons are 360 buttons and can be confusing if using another controller). Amazing game for the price, especially when it's on sale. Grab it.
Best kart racing game of the generationSganotak | Jan. 16, 2014 | See all Sganotak's reviews »
I was a little hesitant to pick this up at first because I am not a big fan of Sonic and the other SEGA characters, but thank God I bought it because this game is awesome.
The game offers lots of content for you to unlock. The character roster is huge and features important characters from SEGA's videogame history. The tracks are equally impressive and each one is based on a different SEGA Franchise. There is an good amount of single player modes, like World Tour (where you compete in various challenges and try to earn stars to spend on unlockables), GP which is your typical kart game tournament mode, Time Trial and Single Race. Unfortunately, some game modes like Battle Arena and Battle Race are available only for online play which is a major letdown for me. The AI will give you a great challenge, especially on the hard difficulty so you'll have chose your character and kart mod carefully. The game also offers a leveling system for all characters which awards them with extra kart mods as they level up. The gameplay mechanics are simple and easily accessible, the controls are fluid and the game balance in general is great.
Be warned though... This game is meant to be played with a controller, you will probably have a hard time figuring out the keyboard mappings.
Awesome racing gameVlady | Dec. 23, 2013 | See all Vlady's reviews »
I was totally surprised by this one. Don't get fooled by that trailer or the "kiddie" graphics. The game is quite challenging and deep if played on harder difficulties. It has lots of tracks, different racing events, progression system, unlockable characters and mods...it really packs a punch. Track design is incredible and the sense of speed and control is just amazing. Very fluid and enjoyable. You could potentially sink dozens of hours playing this. Unfortunately there are also a few gripes that I have: sub par PC port, keyboard controls are not that good, UI could be a lot better, menu layout is not well organized and the announcer is very annoying at times. (there is a voice in the background that narrates your every move while browsing the game menu)

I would say this is the closest thing to a successor of Diddy Kong Racing I've seen. Karts, Boats & planes, along with speed boosts & weapon attacks just like DKR. The drifting aspect adds a whole new level to it though. The trick to doing well is to always be building up a speed boost by drifting, doing tricks on each jump and hitting every boost. That can make it really hard, but once you master it, it's a lot of fun.
The music is great, they've taken a lot of classic game music and updated it. Going through Sky Sanctuary Zone from Sonic 3 in a plane or the Samba map in a boat makes the game interesting enough that the gameplay doesn't get stale.
Highly recommended if you want a solid modern kart racer for PC. Get the 4 pack & join the very active online community.
