In fact, I'm glad Sega ripped off Mario Kart. If you're going to make a kart racer, why not base it off of the best game in the genre? Over the years several companies have tried to make Mario Kart clones. Everyone from Naughty Dog to Rare, and no one has been able to take the crown from Nintendo. Sega itself has had several Sonic racers. Sonic Drift on Game Gear, Sonic R on Sega Saturn, and two Sonic Riders, all of which were terrible. So has Sega finally made a good racing game staring its little blue hedgehog?"
