SummarySonic racing for completists only.
The GoodNice-looking graphics, and the balloon-collecting levels are quite fun for a while.
The BadThis is a complete waste of time. The races are tedious and frustrating. The characters take an eternity just to change direction, and there is a lack of variety in them. The characters themselves look blocky and ugly. Basically this is just a total cash-in, designed to keep the Sonic name alive through the process of pure existence. I'm sure there are hardcore Sonic fans and easily-pleased younger players who'll gain something from this, but it's an expensive way of satisfying your craving for Sonic games, and I'm certain most Sonic fans would prefer one of the kind of platform action games which made the character famous. If you want cute racing games then Crash Team Racing on the PS1 and Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Tag Team Racing on the PS2 are much better.
