    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->In a frantic battle to the chequered flag, Sonic and friends speed around tracks set in mediaeval castle ramparts, lush rainforests and bustling cities, all taken from the visually rich and varied universes of Sonic and SEGA. Fan favourites such as Dr. Eggman, Tails, AiAi, Amigo and many more will join Sonic in their custom built vehicles, revving their engines and jostling to stay ahead of the pack. Each character will speed around the track in cars, planes, motorbikes, and in Aiai's case – a banana mobile! Secret short cuts, swift handling and avoiding strategically placed obstacles are certainly the best way to get to the top of the podium…

    But winning is only part of the fun in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing! Each character has a specific All Star move – such as Super Sonic, Banana Blitz and Tails Tornado – that allows a quick way for competitors to get back into the race! Power ups and weapons can also be collected around the tracks and used against the opposition to ensure they don't become a threat to that number one position.

    Battle it out in single or multiplayer mode, allowing up to four friends to race in frantic split-screen action, or up to eight players to compete online in the ultimate racing showdown.

    Can Amigo scramble Dr. Eggman? Will AiAi say bye-bye to Tails? Are you gonna be faster than Sonic? The race will start in 2010…<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Didn't SEGA learn with Sonic Drift?

    Wacky races Sonic style. This could be hella fun. I mean, Sonic Team at least knows all about making games that are designed around simple racecourses. I'm far more surprised they did this after a Virtua Tennis 3 hack!

    Seems this is going to become a series then. Fighters Megamix 2 anyone??

    Hmm, I'll admit that I've always wanted to see a Sonic kart racer, and also the Sonic's car looks kickass.

    But I'd rather not see people that not many people care about, such as Amigo and AiAi. Personally I'd be more likely to buy this is, if Sega's sideshows weren't present. I don't get why Sega is trying to push through character like those.

    But anyway, we'll see what the gameplay brings before saying much else. It could be brilliant, it could be a trainwreck. Personally I hope it's not the latter.

    What?

    As long as the cars control well this game could be fun I guess. Oh and they better not put Amy and Shadow over Knuckles again.

    Oh wait she's in the game to. Isn't that just peachy.

    The game wouldnt be balanced if all the characters ran as Sonic would outrun most of them. That is unless they give Sonic slowdown shoes as he had in labyrinth.

    Yes we've listened to the SST feedback - and I'm sure you'll be a lot happier with the character roster. Once we can talk about it that is. Providing the office doesn't burn down, it should make a showing on the E3 floor.

    Yes, it's us Sumo doing it BTW :P

    I'll reserve judgment. For all we know, this could be as good as Mario Kart 64.

    I am sad that I can't have Sonic on-foot racing a low-flying NiGHTS, though.

    So this is either Sonic Drift 3 or Sonic R 2.

    God....

    Sonic is in a car, it's more Sonic Drift 3 than Sonic R 2.

    Oh the awesome. <3 It looks like a Mario Kart Wii that doesn't blow ass! Also, I saw Crabmeat. I can't not get this game. I just wish Sonic had his red Ferrari.

    I'd love a HiRes version of this, it'd be a great desktop bg.

    Canada, eh.

    As long as the controls aren't wonky, there's good replay-value and the sights are nice, this could actually be an interesting game. As mentioned above, atleast they gave Sonic a car that fits his style.

    Though, I will admit, how many 'racing'-related games have there been for Sonic? We have Drift, Drift 2, R, Riders, Riders: Zero Gravity. Olympic Games could be included in this category as well, along with the racing mode in Adventure 2. Got to admit, it does fit the style of Sonic's speed, so it makes sense for this kind of game to be made.

    I'm surprised this game doesn't use the Hedgehog Engine for the graphics.

    No, a Sega Vs Capcom would be better.

    One thing I noticed about the CG trailer. The banner at the end of the level says Seaside hill. Perhaps they're remaking the Sonic Heroes level as well?
