The 24 tracks available to race on take in iconic SEGA locations, from Sonic's Green Hill paradise to the murky Curien Mansion from The House of the Dead. The graphics are bright and colourful and each course has original music from the game it represents. In a nutshell, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is a love letter to fans of those classic games of the 1980s and 90s.
In the Collection section, you can browse those locations, characters and music tracks that you've unlocked and read up on their origins. Even the PlayStation Trophies get a nostalgic touch, with names like Streets of Rage and To Be This Good Takes AGES, referring to a clever marketing slogan from some years ago.
In single player mode, you can enter Grand Prix tournaments of four races each set across three difficulty levels. On top of that, there are 64 fun challenges that include collecting coins, shooting crabs with rocket powered boxing gloves and negotiating a maze of vases with a giant cat on a motorbike, trying not to break any of them.
