In this game you can play as many of the popular characters like Sonic, Knuckles, Dr. Eggman, Alex Kidd, Ulala, and many more. Many of these characters are popular Sega characters, hence the fact this game is made by Sega. Surprisingly, you can even play as Ralph from Disney's "Wreck-It Ralph".
I got the Wii U-game for Christmas 2013, together with "Super Mario 3D World". And I found this game to be a great fun, and is pretty similar to the Mario Kart-franchise; You race and use weapons against your rivals in order to get into 1st place. And you race in many funny tracks, which many of them have obstacles you'll have to avoid. And try to not fall off the race track as much as possible. I've even won gold trophies on the regular "Grand Prix". And of course there are tracks and characters to be unlocked. It is funny to see how the characters' vehicle can transform into hovercraft, plane or car, depending on the race track. The Techno-like background music is also funny and cool as well.
One of the main features in this game is a mode called "World Tour". There you don't only do the standard racing, but here you'll get other challenges to complete, like Drift Challenge, Traffic Challenge, Pursuit, Versus, and more. However, the more difficulty you take on a certain challenge (from Easy to Expert), the more stars you get to unlock more challenges and characters. Actually, you'll have to win a certain amount of stars to unlock characters like: Shadow the Hedgehog, Vyse, Pudding, Joe Musashi and the real life driver Danica Patrick.
For starters of the game: Before going to "Grand Prix" and "World Tour", I can recommend you to practice on Time Attack and Single Race. This is how I got to know most of the tracks on this game, before I began racing on "Grand Prix".
Conclusion: If you like the "Mario Kart" franchise, then I suggest you to buy this game. This one deserves two thumbs up from me. Overall rating: 10/10.
