The first Sonic racing game appears for the Game Gear and
you have to jump up and down with joy. But, let's look at
the ratings and you can decide whether to buy it or not.
Graphics - 7
I don't know what to say. The graphics should show better on
the Game Gear that it surprises me a little to see the
quality compared to other Sonic Game Gear games. It's
colourful and have good animations and backgrounds but it
could be better. The cars are not really well done and they
look like funny machines but, maybe it's just me.
Musics - 9
The musics are strange but it's quite nice to listen it as
if it has its own 'adventure', like some kind of background
musics without stopping, replay itself every time. The great
sound effects are really good, after the poor graphics.
Gameplay - 9
Considering it a little, it is really fun and you have four
characters to choose from, Sonic (of course), Tails, Dr.
Robotnik and Amy. Each of them has their own abilities and
they really helped out in certain ways. There are several
tracks you can race on and the main point is to reach the
goal, as other racing games. As usual, you have to win the
Chaos Emeralds from the race.
Replayability - 7
It could be real bore later on, when you win all the races
and master the whole game and if you're good, you can finish
the game in one day!
Overall - 8
It's quite good, since it's just the first Sonic racing game
and also, in the Game Gear. As I say, it could be more
challenging and more fun if possible. Count out the
graphics, the sounds and gameplay are really good and you
can consider to buy it if you want.
