I tried Hard once. And ONLY once.

Never again. Its the kind of "hard' where its not actually any more difficult. Its just that the AI goes completely BS.

- AI no longer gets slowed down by items.
- AI has infinitely better acceleration and top speed than me with every character, despite me playing a character with max acceleration and max top speed.
- All AI racers now ONLY target me, resulting in a near nonstop barrage of items on me.
- AI now constantly rams me in the bumper, preventing me from ever driving in the direction I need to.

That's not hard, nor is it fun. Its just stupid.

Try Expert. I cleared the first World Tour on Expert and switched down to Hard after because all of the BS is even worse in Expert.

As many as it takes for a patch to be made to do something about it.

Wait, we're talking about World Tour with the minimaps and stuff? I already have 130-ish stars just playing through the first four & a half worlds on 3-stars only. The computer is most definitely hard but I don't think it's Mario Kart rubber-band broken where they blast you with blue shells every five seconds. The only thing that seems "cheap" is that they accelerate off the line quicker than I do (well I'm using high speed, low accel cars).

The races are bad but other missions are equally as bad. Flying through the rings Superman 64 style sucked but I got better with the air controls. Then try the traffic mission Seaside Hill in World 5. You have to memorize where all the traffic is and have little room for error. That one took me a few hours to get down.

...never mind, there's probably a 4-star option after you beat the whole game so I'm in for a world of hurt I guess.

But right now I'm not as concerned about how hard the AI is as how do I unlock the "ultimate fan service character."

I have won all the stars on hard mode for the first world on world tour, but I only managed a tie-win on the first grand prix on hard mode, I finished 1st, 3rd, 6th and 1st, the BS i have is when I slow down before the end and someone flies past me, apart from that I like the challenge of a difficult game as last sonic racing was far too easy.

I've beaten a couple of the world events on hard, I refuse to do it on medium because there is no way in Hell I want to do them again to get the stuff you get from hard. I just want to get them out of the way, unlock the cool stuff and be awesome...but it is hard :(
