    That in itself is a Sega tradition dating back at least as far as the Saturn's Fighters Megamix, and possibly further. Haven't got this game yet, but I'm really pleased they've done this, it's the modern equivalent of allowing fights between the Daytona Hornet and the AM2 palm tree in Megamix!

    Does it hold up without the Sega nostalgia? Must admit I don't know half the names on the roster, but Blur is probably my favourite racer of recent years...

    My flatmate has no concept of Sega beyond knowing who sonic is and yeah, she's having as much if a blast as this old fanboy is. A lot of the references will just seem odd but its genuinely a good game.

    Yeah they did this a lot. I think there was a playable horse in Daytona and a sheep in ManxTT etc. I agree it suits a Sega game.

    Having unlocked and sampled the delights of Expert difficulty I would like to say:

    This game swallowed up my Sunday!

    Who's everyone using then? So far my favourites are B.D.Joe, Vyse and Amy. Although I am dying to unlock Pudding! Obscure Space Channel 5 makes me happy

    Shocked at the length of this as well - reminds me of Diddy Kong Racing that way.

    PSN - MJG224 if anyone wants to play.

    Sorely tempted to get this. My GF was a Sega girl, I reckon she'd love it.

    I honestly haven't found a character who works with absolutely everything - it often depends on the type of course and race. Plus I need to level everyone up anyway because... you know... numbers have to get higher and whatnot.

    But generally I'm fond of Sonic (console Mod) and the Monkey Ball guy (standard mod).

    Just bought this after playing the demo which was great fun.( that rarely happens)
    Reminded me of when games were just pure joy and fun!
    Can't wait to see if the full game can carry that feeling on.
    If it does I will gladly recommend this to all and sundry.

    There's a demo?

    This has had a real quiet release. Budget price to boot, was this a decision on Sega's part or is this something retail have taken upon themselves?

    Either way I'm going to grab myself a copy instead of Hitman next pay day.

    I was feeling smug about completing a few races on hard. Then expert came along and handed my arse to me all over again. :(

    I'm getting this on Friday and can't wait, from the gameplay I have seen it looks brilliant. I trust it has 4 player splitscreen as well as online multiplayer?

    ...in career mode as well. Which is lovely - you can unlock stuff as you go.

    Got all the characters from the world tour unlocked but at 168 stars. Need 180 for the last console mod and 200 to progress the map. Gradually doing the races on hard and everything else on expert but don't know if that'll be enough...

    Anyone know how you unlock additional characters. In the original game you would trade in Sega miles in the shop but there doesn't seem to be one in this game.

    @SlackMaster

    As you got through the career mode paths, you get to unlock characters. Some of them are hidden behind 'gates' (in the career's overworld screen, not in the races lol) that require certain numbers of stars.

    Hope that helps!

    You get 2 from doing the grand prixs as well. For all the characters in world tour you need 165 stars.

    Me too. Just got emailed a 10% off code for Zavvi. As it's only Tuesday it *might* be here by the weekend, Lego LotR also *might* be here from Amazon but that's even less likely. So I could have a great weekend, or a really shit one.

    How similar is the handling to Sonic & Sega All Stars?

    178 stars! Getting through the races on expert slowly. 2 more for the last console mod.

    Handling is pretty similar, a little heavier maybe.

    Edit: 181 stars!
