DISCLAIMER: The thread title was obviously a joke just to get your attention! Nyaa

But seriously though, I know we criticize Sega and their Sonic games all the time, but what if they're latest "brilliant, ingenuis, and original" game, Sonic All-Star Racing turns out to be a fantastic kart racer?

Would you guys give it a chance and play it, or would you feel embarrassed to even look at it? Or would you guys criticize it on these forums but secretly play it at home when no one is looking?

That's what I'd probably do. Come on these boards and rip Sega apart for making crap like this but secretly enjoy the game in my room! big_smile.gif

The point is, what if that the game turns out great, maybe even better than Mario Kart Wii, and gets rave reviews?

Feb. 23, this month!

Don't you think Sonic can run faster than this car? LOL!

Seriously, man! Sega has jumped the shark with this one!

The graphics look pretty good though.

Before you guys do this rolleyes.gif the good news is this game is developed by Sumo Digital, the same dudes who did the modern Outrun games. They're pretty good with racing so this Sega All-Stars Racing game may be really good!

I'm willing to give it a chance and play it. You just won't know about it! Nyaa

Could it be better than Mario Kart Wii? It could be, maybe just the Wii version, since a lot of core gamers were disappointed with Mario Kart Wii because they felt it was dumbed down. Sonic Racing may be less accessible for casuals and the graphics will definitely be better. And no friend codes! Grinning

Your thoughts!

The forklift has me interested in the game.

I'm interested in it. I love the Mario Kart games, and this looks like a very good clone. If it turns out to be good, then I'll likely buy it, if only to have another racing game on Wii.

I tried the demo and it seemed quite good. I love Mario Kart and have been really itching to get a similar type game on the 360 and this one looks like it'll fit the bill quite nicely. Surprisingly I'm thinking of purchasing this game.

I might rent it, I like arcade racers. I'd like to turn that announcer off though, and maybe some of the sounds.

Sega are lucky they got banjo.

They only have a few great characters. Ryo is badass though.

What? The whole cast of Virtua Fighter, Sonic and his shitty friends, Ecco, Vectorman, Jet Grind Radio dude, that guy from Skies of Arcadia, Panzer Dragoon riding dude, Ryo, the Daytona USA car, Monkeys in a ball, Shinobi (pick whichever one you want Joe or the new guy), Randy Moss, Golden Axe dwarf, Streets of Rage skater dude, Bug, the cops from Virtua Cop, Kazuma from Yakuza, Toe Jam and Earl, the jet from afterburner, HotD guys, Ulala, Michael Jackson, random character from PSO, Segata Sanshiro, and Nights.

Better cast than Nintendo. Nyaa

Ehhh, they are characters, doubtful if many can count as mascots.

Guy from Skies of Arcadia and guy from Shenmue and guy from Jet Set Radio.

It's not really like Solid Snake, Mario and Sonic. They are games that happen to have characters, not mascot games which are all about the character and his appeal.
