Complex Says: Bright colors, animal mascots, power-ups, oh my! Sounds like the perfect excuse to create a franchise kart racing game. Sonic and all his homeboys (and haters) are in tow here for a quick circuit around the Lost Palace in Seaside Hill. You'd be forgiven for thinking that this was a Mario Kart knock-off at first glance, but the quick demo race proved otherwise. It's fast, it's fun, it's loud, and it's addictive as hell.
Demo Score: 79
Did The Full Game Live Up To The Hype?: Damn straight. The three laps of mayhem we got on the demo track turned out to be more of the same fun we'd later play in the full version. Family night just got real...and maybe a tad too bright.
