    An Excellent Mario Kart Alternative

    Team Sonic Racing is one of those rare Mario Kart clones that is exiting enough in its own right to be fun, addictive and worth playing. The game consists of 15 racers, 21 tracks, an Adventure Mode and classic modes like Grand Prix, Time Trial and Exhibition. Some levels are returning from previous Sonic racers, but most are new and fresh. The main draw here is with its exclusive 3-person team system, which forces you to work together with AI teammates to share items, gain boosts and bounce off each other to gain the upper hand in a race. By performing enough of these coop moves, your team will eventually earn a significant speed boost, which could drastically change the outcome of a race if used at the right times. The main mode, ‘Adventure’, places you in a bit-sized map with a Mario-style level structure, where each stage represents a new race. Each level gives players the opportunity to earn up to 3 stars (bronze, silver and gold), which should give the game some replay value in the long run. Each track is designed with upmost care, boasting an enormous amount of color and vibrant texture work that gives you that feeling of quality, with tight controls and a good sense of speed. The game isn't without its fair share of problems, though. First of all, many stages are locked behind Adventure mode progress, so don't expect to fire up the game and choose whatever stage and character you want right away, because you can't. The next issue worth mentioning is in regards to the tone of the game. For years, Sonic games have been catering to little kids, and the series never matured enough to remove the utter cringe from its voice acting and soundtrack, and this game is no different. Luckily, most of the music is well orchestrated and catchy, but the voice acting and a couple songs that contain lyrics can be pretty awful, so expect to be tempted to skip the 'cut-scenes' that occur between Adventure levels and plug your ears when necessary. Overall, I would recommend Team Sonic Racing as a worthy Mario Kart alternative. The power-ups aren't too exciting and the voice acting is pretty bad, but the gameplay, level design and fun factor are all high enough quality to warrant a purchase.

    A Quality Competitor To Mario Kart

    This new Sonic Racing series is 3-for-3 so far! I was skeptical about replacing the "transformed" gimmick of the last game with the new "team" aspect of this series entry, BUT IT WORKS! The difficulty levels are well balanced and learning the mechanics is fairly simple. This game has something Mario Kart doesn't: speed. There is a genuine sense of going fast. There is plenty of action in races to keep you busy. Even while driving around a normal bend you will find yourself busy checking on your teamates. There's no slow-turns here! Even when you feel you've mastered all of the workings try multiplayer for a whole new level of challenge! Can't wait for the fourth installment in the Sonic Racing series :)

    A very average kart racer

    This game is a decent kart racer, but leaves a lot to be desired, especially after Sega's previous entries into the genre. I'd wait for the price to drop before giving it a go. In the meantime, All-Stars Racing Transformed offers a vastly superior experience if you have a last gen console or PC to play on. Pros: Vibrant, eye popping visuals and decent track designs utilizing Sega's robust catalog of in game universes. The team play mechanic offers a unique twist to the kart racer formula. Cons: Limited character selection, and very bland gameplay leaves a lot to be desired.

    Base on my experience first impression were very good as my experience were in the middle, I was blown away by the great graphics, the unique team mechanic gameplay, and the story while basic still is very fun to play. As I also appreciate This game is it's own thing, the controls did get hard to get use to at fiest, however overtime it gets better and better through the enjoyable experience. Overall this game past my expectations as I had so much fun with the game as a whole, for those who enjoy racing games this is your time and worth the price to play with friends.

    I was a big fan of Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed on the Vita and now we have Team Sonic Racing as a spiritual successor. Overall I'm happy with this game, The graphics and sound is spot on and of good quality. The courses are varied with some re imagined ones from Sonic All-Stars Racing. The only thing about the game that kinda detracts from the enjoyment of playing it is the frequent cut-scenes where you'll see one of Sonics pals talking about something going on in this kart racing world. Overall its a fun and entertaining game for fans of Sega and Sonic!

    This game is pretty fun but it has a few flaws. The game controls well and the team game play is well designed, but sometimes your teammates do so bad, you come down with them. The story is mode is fun and the missions are pretty nice. The dialogue and voice acting is alright. The music is very good, tackling multiple genres like rock and dub-step. The graphics are nice looking with some well made textures, and some good lighting. Overall, the game is worth the price and I would recommend it.

    Good game but bad online experience for PS4

    The main game is a fun playthrough against the AI, but where it should really shine it just does nothing. The online experience has the modes you would expect to enjoy, but the online functionality is not good. On the rare chance a match actually has enough people it is that great experience you expect. More often than not it is a laggy, mostly AI filled mess often with disconnects. I hope it can be changed in the future. my rating would be 4 or 5 if it gets fixed.

    I happened to look at this game on YouTube and I liked what I saw! I've played this game quite a bit and I have to say that I had a blast! the only issue I had was I wish the races were a little bit longer. Other than that I have no issues with the game! I grew up with sonic in my house hold so this game is pretty good. I'm glad to have it in my collection. I would highly recommend this game to any Sonic The Hedgehog fan.

    My initial thought of Sonic and cars was "why", however my son is a big fan and having grown up on Sonic myself I gave it a shot. This game is plenty of fun. If you like arcade racing and Sonic this is a good purchase. Plenty of challenging levels and custom pieces to unlock. Even has online racing.

    As with previous entries, Team Sonic Racing is another solid kart racer for fans of all ages. This racer features a huge cast of familiar Sonic characters and a new team based gameplay style which sets it apart from other racers like Mario Kart 8.

    The game is excellent. I like the diverse races. The story is a bit cheesy but at least they tried. The team racing aspect is different and really makes the game stand out. I highly recommend the game if you love kart racers.

    Another Great Sonic Kart Racer

    Still giving Mario Kart a run for it's money, this is another great kart racer that Sonic fans won't want to miss. It lacks the additional SEGA characters in favor an all Sonic themed cast, but it's still fantastic.

    This game was a fun experience, especially when I tried it out with 3 other friends locally. Even the single player content was fun too with its fun story mode. I would recommend, especially if your a sonic fan.

    It’s been so hard to find a racing game for PS4 since Nintendo is being stingy with Mario Karts & this one gives me so much life ! And the AI characters are challenging as well, so there’s so much fun to be had.

    Very fun game that found an easy way to integrate team based racing! You can pass weapon items to teammates, give speed boosts, and help each other charge your ultimate speed boost attack! Very solid kart racer.

    This game isn’t bad. It’s basically MARIO Kart except with Sonic and the Gang. I wish that this was All Star Team Racing instead though which is the one where the car turned into a plane and a boat.

    I remember playing Sonic back in the day. I like the fact that I can now play it with my Daughter. She's a big time gamer, so I bought this for her and I to play together. It's cute and fun!

    TSR is a fun game especially when online with friends. This game offers online split screen which Crash Team Racing does not. I find the racing competitive even for beginners.

    A lot of people will put Mario before sonic, but this game has a lot of really cool mechanics you don’t see in any other kart racer. I think it’s better than Mario kart too ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
