    How does it perform? I have the Wii U version, but the eShop price for this on 3DS isn't too shabby for a change.

    HMV were selling Sonic Allstars Racing on wii u today for £7.99 so grabbed a copy. Seemed rude not too, and it's another game my toddler can enjoy watching \o/

    Have played this for a few hours now and whilst I don't hate it, I'm not sure where the plaudits are coming from. The frame rate is a little jarring, it just doesn't feel smooth and the drifting is really shonky. The way it automatically straightens you up after the drift renders you without control and stops me from bothering to use it half the time.

    Or am I doing it wrong?

    if you're not using it all the time, you're doing it wrong. the trick is to hold until the next corner, release it and hold it again in the next one to add to your boost. i think it's more ridge racer than mario kart in the drifting aspect.

    hhmm, I'm definitely playing it more akin to Mario Kart. I shall have a try practicing it that way, ta.

    It's kind of like Outrun2/Ridge Racer drifting. You should be doing it continuously.

    Take what you've learnt in terms of drifting in Mario Kart and completely do the opposite of what comes naturally.

    The drift model in this is great really, you get really good control, but it's totally different to Mario Kart.

    I really like the game. Took me a while to get used to but I really like it.

    Frame rate is fine on mine as well (PS3). What version are you playing on?

    Playing on the Wii U, and one some levels it's ok but others it just seems a bit naff. In fact it's the same reason that put me off getting it on the xbox when I played the demo for it.

    Framerate is dire

    Put me right off

    Sega did an online poll recently, asking what people wanted for dlc.  Everyone overwhelmingly voted for Shenmue and Ryo Hazuki themed track and racing character.  Don't know how far along that is in development, but really hope it's out soon!

    I might have to load this up again later, see if anyone has beaten any of my times.

    Framerate has no issues at all on the 360 or PS3 version.

    Haha, good one!

    The frame rate in multiplayer brings back memories of perfect dark, hectic and fun, but you won't be able to have any serious games because of it.

    Definitely get it for PC if it's an option, that way the framerate won't get in the way of such an amazing game.

    Maybe you're confusing framerate with lag?

    Nope, I only play local multiplayer an it's not my tv.

    I can't comprehend how someone can not see the framerate issues in this game, it's so fast paced with a lot happening on screen. Even my non-nerdy friends notice it.

    Picked this up on a cheap whim yesterday for the Xbox. It's a bit good, innit?

    Have noticed some minor slowdown here and there, but nothing that distracts too much from the game.

    I've done got me hours of online multiplayer, and never had any framerate issues.

    People who think there is are a bit spasticated, or just trying to find fault with it, imo.

    That's strangely defensive of you. It clearly has frame rate problems. It didn't really bother me but they are there.

    Hush you ponce

    It has frame rate issues when you consider that Mario Kart 7 runs at a locked 60fps. All-Star Racing swings either side of 30fps on Wii U, which according to the digital foundry verdict, has the best frame rate of the console versions.

    It personally doesn't bother me all that much, but if you're not used to it with racing games, which isn't unlikely, then you're going to find it annoying. It really doesn't help that the game's scenery is massively cluttered, making the motion trails even more noticable.

    You're a fucking Nintendo fan-fraggle, this game is better than any recent Mario Kart, including MK7.

    What's a fan-fraggle? Either way, you're entitled to your own opinion, but I personally feel the tracks in this one, whilst being visually interesting, have quite bland layouts. I'm not a big fan of the weapons either. Mario Kart 7 lacks any kind of voice chat, but has some great tracks, both new and old, and has customisable race options. That and it's just so damn fun to play!

    Edit - For what it's worth though, I have become a bit of a Ninty fan.

    The tracks in SRT are way more interesting layouts than Mario Karts.

    This pisses on Mario Kart from a ridiculous height, in every regard.

    Is it still possible to have different opinions on different games? I thought it was, but now I'm not so sure. For what it's worth I find both are very enjoyable games, and I'm glad they do some things differently. It keeps them both interesting and fun to play for different reasons.

    I prefer the focus Mario Kart places on driving and the track design, but I really love the way Sega Racing reminds me of Diddy Kong Racing, except better :)

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    @DFawkes

    Indeed! This (which I've been playing all afternoon) and MK7 are the best kart racers since Crash Team Racing (which I'm gonna play now, before a spot of the title from whence we all came - Suoer Mario Kart!).

    It is a great game but does of course have frame rate problems on console.  Saying it doesn't is a completely different thing to saying that it doesn't bother you.  Some tracks are worse than others and the frame rate can take a nose dive in water. 

    PC version runs on a calculator though and doesnt need that powerful à machine to lock at 60fps.  Its definitely thé sweetest version.

    Sonic & All Stars Racing Mouthful is free to play this weekend on Steam. If you don't give it a try then I worry about your mental well-being.

    Yeah I've been giving this a whirl and it's absolutely brilliant. Can't decide whether to buy it or not as I tend to have a short attention span with these kind of games.

    I'm really surprised by how hard it actually is, getting your boosts and shit.

    I miss my Dreamcast :(
