Sega seeks to make amends by putting gamers behind the wheel of a new arcade racing game called Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing which is being developed by Sumo Digital. Now, your initial reactions may be entirely appropriate; we all cannot deny that the mascot kart-racing genre has turned stale and tired. There have been dutiful attempts such as Crash Team Racing for the PSONE but most games seem to want to use the tiresome Mario Kart template, unable to think of anything fresh and new. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing actually looks to be a competent racer, lovingly recreating and unearthing a lot of Sega's character stable and history."
