There are a lot of positive things to say about this kart racer, like great controls on the ground and plenty of fun, challenging game modes. However; there were quite a few things I didn't like. Here's a list of what I believe to be the Pros and Cons of this game.

Pros:
-Exciting races. Most tracks force you to drive in two or all three of the available vehicle types: Karts, boats, and planes. In addition, most tracks are also differnt on each lap. For example: The first two laps on the Golden Axe stage are the same, save for a few obstacles placed on the track, but the third lap features a lot more flying and a lot less karting. There's also a lot of intersting stuff going on in the background of most stages.

-Good character selection. While I was dissapointed to learn Billy Hatcher didn't make it into this game, there are still plenty of characters to chose from. Each character has their own stats (Speed, Accel, Handling, Boost, All-Star), and they all also have "mods" that change those stats. You unlock mods by leveling up characters. For the most part, mods will allow you to play as your favorite character on any track. Need better handling? No need to swtich characters, just use a mod.

-Amazing modes. Kart racers are, obviously, best played with friends. While I can't attest to the quality of the online play in this game, there's more an enough single player content to keep one person entertained. Aside from perfecting each of the 10 Grand Prix cups, there are also 51 challenge stages. These stages can be anything from "race against the CPU" to "chase down and destroy a tank." My personal favorite are the boost challenges: It's essentially a time-attack challenge, but the timer stops if you're boosting off of a panel or from drift.

-Tricks. If your kart or boat is launched off the ground, you can tilt the right-stick to do flips and rolls. The more you do in the air, the better the boost you get when you finally touch the ground again. Fun, and the boost you get can make a serious difference in the outcome of the game.

Cons:
-Some weird characters: While they do have some novel appeal, characters like Football Manager, General Winder, Wreck-It Ralph, and Danica Patrick get really old, really quick. Every time I start up a race, I hope they're not a part of it. They don't feel like they belong here at all. If you like them, more power to you, but I feel that they divert attention away from the other colorful racers in this game and only took up spots that could've been given to characters like Rouge, Vector, or Billy Hatcher.

-Not many memorable stages: Yeah, most stages are fun to race on, but they're not particularly memorable or interesting to look out. Notable exceptions are the Sonic and JSR levels, but others like the god-awful Billy Hatcher and Burning Rangers levels make me want to pull my hair out. Some of these turns are "impossible" to take at high-speeds. Even top-level CPUs will crash straight into the walls at the end of the Billy Hatcher stage. Not even they can make these turns reliably. Other stages like the NiGHTs and classic Samba de Amigo levels will put you to sleep.

-Boats: I hate the boats. There are some weird physics going on with these boats. Take a ramp at (what the game would arbitratily call) a strange angle and say goodbye to all your momentum. Enjoy floating in the air for a 10 seconds while all your opponents zip past you. Twice, I've also tapped the wall taking a sharp turn and have been put UNDERNEATH the water. What resulted was a bunch of flipping around in place and an end to my GP runs. Sometimes the boats work, sometimes the boats work you.

Despite the cons, the game as a whole is still a lot of fun. I'm not sure I would say it's better or worse than Mario Kart. It's a different experience, and certainly one worth having.

If you're looking for a PC Karting game in the same vein as Mario Kart, you've come to the right place.
Some are even arguing that it's better than Mario Kart... and I think I agree with them.

If you always wanted that amazing sequel to Diddy Kong Racing that never came, it's right here.

If you want one of the hardest kart racers ever, the Dark Souls of kart racing, it's right here.

If you love tight controls, great video game nostalgia and just plain fun, it's right here.

This game deserve a few minutes of reviewing. First of all I'm not a big console fan and I prefer simulation racing game to arcade ones. I enjoyed Mario Kart on the SNES back in the days but the further iterations were just "meh" to me because I haven't felt any great improvement over the years. I bought this kart racing game on sale to increase my Steam library and to have a casual game to play with some friends online. I'd never tough I'd get hooked like this. It actually beats Mario Kart in every aspect thanks to it's diversity, freshness and style. The artwork quality is outstanding compared to other arcade PC games and I run at a constant 60fps on a low-midrange card with everything maxed out; it's that well optimized. The gameplay is fast, responsive and the tracks are very diversified. The levels are all themes of different Sega games in history from Sega Master System up to Dreamcast along with some brilliant remastered music. The world tour mode will encourage you in many different competition to unlock every characters and the multiplayer online, or offline up to 4, will keep you playing this little arcade gem for a while.. and come back to it from time to time because there is nothing else like it on PC. If you see this on sale, you have no excuses to overlook it. Thank you Sumo Digital & Sega for the best arcade game I played until now

A highly addictive racing game made by Sega. This game is loads of fun. It has a variety of tracks and is compatible with the Xbox One controller. I would recommend using the controller, too, as it can be a bit tricky with the keyboard

I pretty sure we all bought this game cause we love Sonic the Hedgehog, or fans of Sega or maybe we're all complete Mariokart fans. But that is not important what is important is that I might be a addict that needs professional help asap, if I continue playing this game, so I might consider taking a break from this game for a week. Lets just hope that I don't break that promise cause if I do I guess I am really a addict.

Match Making

Match making is basically a bunch of tryhards all spamming their way to victory, yush I know getting first place is rather a bitter sweet moment. But again it for rating points which I honestly don't give a rat ♥♥♥ about. But match making has it moments if you're like me that sometimes I will try to purposely stay in the middle of the pack, since that is where all the action is xD. Besides I only ever play match making unless either Nurse, Chrono or Tom are in the lobby then yeah I will jump in the lobby faster then the speed of light. But if anyone of them aren't in the lobby, then I don't bother I just play Grand Prix instead.

Grand Prix and Artificial intelligence

Speaking of Grand Prix. Grand Prix is basically a mini tourney when you come to think of it, with the points system and what not. The bots or the proper term "artificial intelligence". Yeah yeah bots like to rubberband but honestly who cares I think it funny and flattering if you ask me. Or just picture it like this like I do, you have 9 highschool sweethearts that all sercetly has a crush on you, but they are all to shy to ask you out so instead they write love notes. But again they are to shy to actually give it to you, so what they did is that they made their love notes into paper airplanes and when you are not looking, a paper airplane will lighty hit you, so what I saying is. Bots rubberbanding is equal to that of love notes :). But if you're still complaining then go play matchmaking it literally the same thing.

Being the artificial intelligence geek I am. The only complaint I have with these bots is when it comes to flying maps, they don't airdrift or riskboost they fly like they are going on a stroll. In other words they don't give a sh*t xD.

10/10

But seriously I am taking a break from this game for a week, I shall be back to playing SASRT on August 8 :)

This game is very similar to Crash Team Racing and Muppet RaceMania from PlayStation (I only played those two). Concept is same - you race with other characters, using powerups to help you on the way. There's no pure racing, you have to learn to drift properly and do stunts while in air to earn short speed boosts and also trying to sabotage other players, which is not always easy to do but can help greatly in determining the winner. There're plenty of tracks and several racing mods so it's hard to get boring.

Although you can finish this game in any difficulty you want, playing on highest difficulty is a real treat. There's pure adrenaline rush, trying to finish first without making errors (especially in "beat the ghost" mod). Multiplayer is still active (as of this date), you won't have problems finding others to play with. Some achievements are really hard to get so this is not easy 100%.

Overall, great racing experience, great game, you won't be disappointed.

What a great little karting game this is. It offers challenge and depth while still maintaining pickup and play casual fun. It has decent variety with its generously sized character roster each with their own stats and play styles as well as land, sea and air racing to keep things interesting. Definitely recommend this game.

Well you cant have Mario Kart on PC (offically anyway), so this is the next best thing.

Smooth framerates , lots of characters to choose from.

Maps are all over the place, so pleny of vareity.

I think this is preoblalby the best kart racing game for the PC.

Sega did a great job!

This game makes you feel badass, and skill is involved in driving.

Heck, even a noob who's so terrible at racing games could still have the time of his/her life on this game.
