Who Karted?

Nintendo’s moustached Mario has been king of the karting games for some time now (seven editions in fact), but now a couple of upstarts are attempting to steal the short plumbers karting krown. Little Big Planet’s SackBoy is taking to the kart tracks as a PlayStation exclusive, whilst Sonic the Hedgehog is bringing his transformed racing pals along for the ride. (Little Big Planet Karting, PS Vita, PS3)

agreed.
LBPK is pretty fun! MNR was as well.
How can anyone pass on a good kart racing game is beyond me :)
Games like ths will always have a place n my library, just as Mario.K has.

Game on.

Gran Turismo 5 is my prefered brand of karting. Though I guess that's a different kind of karting than Mario Kart or LBP/MNR karting. I don't know if it's really comparable being a realistic karting experience instead of a CARToony one, but it works for me.

Mario Kart was dethroned long ago with the release of Crash Team Racing.

People like to compare LBP and Mario a lot, but without the Play Create Share formula, Mario just can't compete imo.

Ahh Crash Team Racing what a game. I wasted so many hours so many hours on that game. Time well spent.

I'm also hearing lots of positive feedback on new Sonic Racing Transformed lately.

I liked the demo from the 1st game but didnt enjoy the new Transform demo.

The part of races going from car, boat and plane seems interesting.

Mario Kart has been surpassed way back in the PS1/N64 era.

Crash Team Racing(PS1) and Diddy Kong Racing(N64) were better than Mario Kart.
