The first thing I notice in this game is that the tracks are overall better designed then the first Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing overall and the hd graphics are loverly as well. The tracks have been inspired by many classic Sega games over the years such as Afterburner, Shinobi, Golden Axe and many more. The last cup features some of the best tracks from the last Sonic Racing game, which I thought to be a nice touch. The way your car transforms into a plane or a boat as you are racing works very well indeed and makes the racing action even more exciting. Up to five people can play this game on the Wii U in multiplayer, one of you uses the GamePad and the other players use Wii Remotes. Another fantastic feature is that one can play this game with the tv switched off, when using the GamePad. I have been enjoying MiiVerse with this game and my other Wii U games. You get to take photo's of the game you're playing, do drawings and write about your gaming experience. There are plenty of Sega characters to unlock and I was given Alex the Kid on Christmas day from Sega themsleves. I'm hoping to unlock Shinobi because I have been loving this game on the 3DS and I also can't wait to see the film Wreck-it Ralph, who is playable from the start.
The weapons seem more fair then the newer Mario Kart games, because there is no Blue shell and this game really shifts as well. This another game alongside Nintendo Land, which my 7 year old daughter and partner enjoy playing together as a family.The Nintendo magazine should hang their heads in shame, when they only gave this great game 62 percent. I did hear that this game had a big patch, which could mean the version that the Nintendo magazine reviewed had faults. One hopes they may adjust their score because, it may put people off buying this game. The reviews online give a more realistic scoring on how good this game really is. Sega have upped their game even more with this sequel and is giving Mario Kart, even more of a run for it's money.
