You can't beat a good kart-style racing game and this one makes a fun alternative to the ever-popular Mario Kart.
Ultimately, this may be the definitive version of this game. It may not sport the flashy visuals of its console counterparts, but it sports much of the same great gameplay plus it fits in your pocket and can be bought for nearly half the price of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
Worth Playing (Mar 09, 2010)
Will Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing dethrone Mario Kart DS as the de facto kart racing title for the Nintendo DS? No. The multiplayer alone isn't as wide-reaching, with some strange limitations in place for most of the modes. Despite these shortcomings, the game is still fantastic. With great controls, gorgeous graphics, awesome sound, and a perfect sense of speed, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a very exciting kart racer and the closest that anyone has come to matching Mario Kart on a portable Nintendo system. Sega fans should immediately pick up this title, as should racing fans in general. With a game this good, don't be surprised if you have it in regular rotation for quite some time.
Impulse Gamer (Mar, 2010)
In conclusion, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a thoroughly enjoyable racing title for the DS that proves that Nintendo does not hold the monopoly on kart games. With great graphics, fun gameplay and more importantly perfect tracks and vehicles, this is what DS gaming is all about and this game highlights just that. It’s also great to see the various SEGA characters from Sonic to Alex Kidd and even the chick from Space Channel 5, perfectly cast indeed. If you’re after a game that can be played over and over again, than this is it… check it out!

Seinem Konkurrenten Mario Kart kann Sonic als Rennfahrer nicht ganz das Wasser reichen.
N-Europe (May 04, 2010)
While not the Mario Kart beater many may have hoped for, Sega All-Stars Racing is still a stunningly good racer that's both well designed and fun to play; definitely worth buying.
Nintendo Life (Mar 11, 2010)
As with the Wii version, Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing may not do anything especially new in the character racing genre but it handles well, looks good and offers stacks of reasons to return. Whether multi- or single-player there’s plenty to recommend All-Stars Racing to handheld racing fans, and it even perhaps narrowly eclipses the already-excellent Wii version.
GameSpot (Feb 26, 2010)
Although the core of Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is obviously pulled straight out of Mario Kart, this wacky racer can stand on its own four wheels. The tight controls and excellent track design ensure that head-to-head competition is always exciting, but it's so fun just to play around with these karts that it’s easy to lose hours climbing the online leaderboards in Time Trial mode. All-Star Racing may not push the genre forward in any meaningful way, but it builds so well on established themes that it doesn't even matter.
IGN (Feb 24, 2010)
Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing may not have a whole lot in the gameplay department that it can call its own, but Sumo Digital took what worked and built a SEGA-themed experience that captures what makes the company's games so memorable. This racer is surprisingly deep and robust, and even with its unoriginal design it's a great time no matter which version you get. The Nintendo DS version is a great complement to the console design because it shares similarities while retaining its own unique feel.
Spazio Games (Mar 01, 2010)
Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing ha fatto il suo esordio in grande stile, difendendosi più che egregiamente dal suo rivale Mario. Se volete provare qualcosa di diverso e cercate un titolo divertente, spensierato e condivisibile con gli amici, vi consigliamo caldamente di procedere all'acquisto dell'ultima fatica SEGA. La montagna chiamata Mario Kart rappresenta un traguardo ancora lontano ma se queste sono le premesse, possiamo prevedere una grande sfida in termini di qualità per il prossimo futuro. Nota di demerito per com'è stato sviluppato il servizio online e il collegamento in locale, a volte limitante oltremodo senza un valido motivo.
80 (Mar 22, 2010)
Veniamo al dunque: anche dopo 5 anni, se si cerca un racing game arcade con forte connotazione multiplayer la prima scelta ricade ancora su Mario Kart. Detto questo, coloro che ne hanno ormai abbastanza dei tracciati del gioco Nintendo e cercano qualcosa di nuovo, oppure i fan sfegatati Sega possono prendere tranquillamente in considerazione l'acquisto di questo Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing, che all'interno del genere su questa piattaforma si piazza comunque come buon secondo. Un po' caotico nella guida e discontinuo nella realizzazione dei tracciati, il titolo Sega ripaga comunque con un'abbondante quantità di gioco in singolo e con varie possibilità di multiplayer.
Modojo (Mar 01, 2010)
Obviously, people will compare this game to Mario Kart DS and it's obvious that Sega followed Nintendo's formula almost step for step. But there's certainly nothing wrong with that, especially when it's a quality effort like Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. Great for fans, casual players and kids (in other words, everyone), it's a well made, cool and value packed kart racer that's worth the cash.
NintendoWorldReport (Mar 11, 2010)
Sure, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing may not be everything gamers have expected from it, but the end result is hardly worth bickering over. The core gameplay mechanics are set in stone and the addition of a set of achievements really helps propel the game from the mediocre range of racers. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a fun, entertaining, and enjoyable title that’s likely to be overlooked by Mario Kart DS, but for those looking for a game that plays similarly to Nintendo’s own creation, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is the way to go.

Sonic & Sega All Star Racing segue pedissequamente la strada introdotta da Nintendo con il suo celebre Mario Kart. Tuttavia questo non può essere considerato un aspetto negativo, soprattutto se il risultato finale produce un videogioco fresco e divertente come il titolo in questione. Sebbene Sumo Digital non proponga nulla di originale, e nonostante la presenza di alcune imperfezioni, nel complesso tutta la struttura ludica risulta essere ben apprezzabile da coloro che amano il genere, soprattutto su console portatile.

Die Stärke von “Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing” ist der umfangreiche Einzelspielermodus mit spannenden Grand Prix und herausfordernden Missionen. Doch auch die Spielbarkeit, das Belohnungs- und Herausforderungssystem, die vielen bekannten Charaktere und die Grafik können sich sehen lassen. Kritik muss sich Sumo Digital allerdings für den mittelmäßigen Sound, die etwas schwammige Steuerung und den verbesserungswürdigen Mehrspielermodus gefallen lassen, der durch das Fehlen von Pokalrennen negativ auffällt. Insgesamt ist “Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing” aber ein wirklich guter Fun Racer geworden, bei dem man gerne zum Vielfahrerpunktesammler wird.

Mit der kultigen Sega-Truppe in ihren individuellen Boliden, der guten Auswahl an Spielmodi sowie freischaltbaren Extras steht lustigen Duellen eigentlich nichts im Wege - zumal die Drift-Mechanik hier noch einfacher zu beherrschen ist als auf den Konsolen und dem PC. Doch der Segen ist gleichzeitig ein Fluch: Da der Turbo durch das häufige Schlittern quasi jederzeit im Handumdrehen aufgeladen wird, rücken die Drifts vor allem in Mehrspieler-Partien zu sehr in den Mittelpunkt und verdrängen dabei den Einsatz von Extras. Hier hat man es einfach übertrieben, anstatt auf wesentlich sinnvollere Features wie einen Windschatten zu setzen. Darüber hinaus wird im Lag anfälligen Onlinemodus zu wenig geboten, während die Einschränkungen beim Game Sharing wie ein schlechter Witz wirken. Technisch mag man mit Mario Kart auf Augenhöhe sein und dem Vorbild teilweise sogar davon fahren, doch inhaltlich und in Sachen Spielmechanik bleiben die Sega-Racer weit hinter dem Meister der Funracer zurück.
Pocket Gamer UK (Mar 01, 2010)
This pint-sized racer is so playable and packed with fan-service that Sega fans will want to hop on board as soon as possible - but it doesn’t quite match Mario Kart when it comes to raw enjoyment and multiplayer brilliance.
Cubed3 (Mar 15, 2010)
Sumo Digital have managed to craft a 'Mascot Racer' that aside from numerous pitstops, manages to be a worthy alternative to Nintendo’s own high profile effort. Limited history showing and bland track creation let the team down, but what’s left is still a considerable option for both gamers new to SEGA lore and history buffs alike.

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing s'appuie sur un contenu solide et s'impose comme le plus sérieux concurrent de Mario Kart sur ce support. Joliment réalisé, pêchu, sympathique en multi, il fera mieux que divertir. Quelques défauts lui nuisent cependant, à commencer par une IA bien trop avantagée. Pas de quoi saboter le principe pour autant ! A défaut d'un coup de maître, Sega réussit la bonne opération de ce début d'année en imposant sa licence comme une alternative de choix au légendaire Mario Kart.
