Diddy Kong Racing done right!

I am loving this game! I have been very skeptical about Sonic-off shoot games, as well as the main line, for many years now. I didn't expect this game to be much but I wanted something to play with the family during the holidays.

this game is great! Reminds me of a smoother, more advanced Diddy Kong Racing meets Mario Kart.

It's a very well made game, even better than Mario Kart when it comes to stage design.

Funny you say that. Lately anything Sonic made has sucked but the Sonic Racing games have been well done. Installing this one as we speak.

Yes there's been tons of sonic racing games, ever since sonic R on the saturn in 90-something. (which was pretty bad)

I haven't played any of the other recent racing games, but this one looks really promising.

Ironically enough this might be the only game that I'd buy a Wii U for before 2013. (and maybe scribblenauts)

Great game for $39.99. I almost got it for free using the Target buy 2 get 1 50% of and 15 bucks in target cards from reservations. I really like the land, sea and air variation. Game is also very challenging.

That wasn't the subject.

This was: "Lately anything Sonic made has sucked"

Sonic outside of Colors/Generations (and some of the portable titles) has sucked since 1994, with Sonic & Knuckles being the last good game.

The Sonic & All-Stars Racing series, however, are a couple of the best games I've ever played.

The only truly "sucky" Sonic games I would say are Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic and the Secret Rings and Sonic and the Black Knight.

Sonic '06 actually does STRAIGHT UP SUCK. No quotations needed. IT SUCKS.

You got it right, sir or ma'm.

And despite it's sucky interface and many glitches, I actually enjoy Shadow the Hedgehog.

Doesnt' stop me from hating the 'internet' level or trying to do the search and rescue ending of the ARK level.
