Great Sonic Racing Game
on 31 March 2016
For a long time, I never played any kind of Sonic racing game. Mario Kart was enough for me, and I'm not really into car racing games much anyway.
But when I got around to trying this game out, it was sort of mind blowing. If you though Mario Kart was fun, as I did, this game hit you in the face with way more interesting features, modes and fun.
Most tracks will have you first racing in a car, which can be upgraded with certain settings, and then switching to a boat mid-race, and possibly even aircraft.
For me, that this makes it far more interesting than does Mario Kart. Usually, it doesnt take long to get to first place in Mario Kart and when you do, the fun sort of stops. All you pick up are bananas and the odd green shell maybe. I cannot comment on the WiiU game, but from my experiences with Mario Kart Wii, and Double Dash on the GameCube, they both follow that pattern.
I find that in this game, getting into first place is the first challenge. The next one is staying in it. Any kind of screw-up, and you will likely be knocked back a few places. The weapons that come after you are also somewhat irritating, but nothing quite on the scale of Mario Karts Blue Shell. The most annoying one I came across was actually in the Sonic All Stars racing game before this one, which flipped both the screen and the controls upsidedown.
This game is wonderful and fun, and brings the experiece of Mario Kart to other platforms but with significant improvments.
