Ranking the Sonic games from worst to best

5. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing mostly got things right, even if it wasn’t the Mario Kart beater many were hoping it would be.


This was Sega’s answer to Mario Kart, and turned out to be a good racer back in 2010 thanks to its variety of vehicles and tracks. As a matter of fact, this had a nice collection of tracks based on well-known Sega video games like Fantasy Zone, Billy Hatcher and, of course, the Sonic games.

Sonic was one of dozens of racers you could pick here, a roster which also included other classic Sonic characters like Tails, Knuckles and the villainous Dr Eggman. Aside from the well-designed tracks, the weapons and power-ups also added excitement to the races, and using the ‘Super Sonic’ power-up to blaze through the track at super-speed sure was a joy… Quick-witted players could also take advantage of shortcuts to counter their rivals power-ups as well. All in all, this is a good kart racer even if it failed to give the great Mario Kart a run for its money back in the day.
