The Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing demo is now available for download from Xbox Live Marketplace.

The file's 1GB and can be queued from the Xbox website.

We don't know what's in the sampler - there's no description offered - but assume there are one or two courses and a handful of drivers to race around them.

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is a cartoon driving game clearly inspired by Mario Kart. Well-known characters have relevant special powers and the word "gloomy" has been expelled from the dictionary.

Split-screen and online multiplayer will feature in the full game, but we're not sure whether they're represented here.

Let us know what you think below.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
