I can play it at a moment's notice, have a total blast and keep doing so long after everyone else in the vicinity is ready to head to bed or work or whatever it is that normal people do. While I've enjoyed the many kart racing titles that followed, none of them have lived up to the original in my eyes. I began to believe that I was destined to never find a game that even came close to rivaling the beauty of plumbers, dinosaurs and turtles tooling around the Mushroom Kingdom that I remembered from my youth, not even one produced by Nintendo itself. Then SEGA released Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing."
