    Team Sonic Racing refines and advances the genre in creative ways that make it a must play for both kart racing and Sonic fans alike, which is easy to do thanks to its budget price.

    Team Sonic Racing is one of Sonic's best spin-off games to date. Even with the handful of problems I had with the game, I found I was easily able to overlook them because of the pure fun I was having. Team Sonic Racing is definitely worth checking out if you're looking for your next kart racing craze.

    Team Sonic Racing is, above all else, a fun kart racing game that stumbles a little with difficulty spikes in single player and slow down in split screen multiplayer, Those looking for a challenging but welcoming racing game to play with friends and family are likely to get exactly what they're looking for.

    Team Sonic Racing isn't the best karting game out there. But its well-executed team mechanic changes the way you play, making it a worthy addition to the genre.

    Team Sonic Racing is a solid kart racer that suffers from some unfortunate drawbacks. The team-based racing works well and mixes up the usual kart formula. However, the game is marred by game modes that lack fun, missing polish and an inescapable feeling that this is a downgrade of what has come before.

    We don't want to drag Team Sonic Racing down for ultimately quite trivial points. At the end of the day, Sumo Digital has served up a solid kart racer that succeeds in bringing something new to the table. It won't be to everyone's tastes, but the cooperative racing adds a nice layer of rapid fire strategy. It's implemented well, to the point where standard races feel distinctly secondary. It might be lacking the wow factor SEGA's other IPs brought to Sumo's other racers, and it's a shame performance is a little rocky, but this is a good option for PS4 players who want some arcadey thrills.

    Team Sonic Racing, despite carrying a tidbit of fun, doesn't stand up to other kart racers today.

Para que não deu a chance, não sabe o queMuitos jogadores torceram o nariz quando o Team Sonic Racing teria o foco em equipes do que solo. Para que não deu a chance, não sabe o que está perdendo. A Sega e Sumo Digital foram corajosas e inovadoras em trazer um jogo com um gameplay bastante viciante e desafiante. Como sempre, e é de praxe na franquia Sonic Racing, o jogo tem uma bela trilha sonora, mas achei o trabalho inferior aos outros jogos da franquia. Os gráficos estão muito bons e correndo a 60fps! Algumas pistas o level design encanta e outras nem tanto. É bom ressaltar que as pistas tem mais obstáculos, ondulações, rotas de fuga e atalhos criativos.

    Mas o que encanta mesmo Team Sonic Racing é o gameplay. Jogar em equipe realmente lhe traz uma boa dose de diversão e humor. Já que os personagens conversam entre si e comentam as situações das pistas. E as mecânicas da equipe funcionam muito bem. Outro ponto positivo é a dificuldade no modo campanha do game. Conseguir as três estrelas e a platina em cada missão vai deixar seus cabelos brancos de tanta raiva. Fora isso temos as customizações dos veículos, que você ganha gastando a moeda do jogo. O interessante que as modificações dos layouts dos veículos também influenciam no desempenho do veículo. Isso é fundamental em algumas situações de jogo. Por exemplo, você pode deixar seu veículo mais resistente para não sofrer dano contra um obstáculo da pista ou mesmo nas rochas que são criadas pelos seus inimigos.

    Agora vamos falar do ponto negativo, infelizmente temos uma quantidade de apenas 15 personagens. Realmente é pouco para uma franquia tão recheada de personagens icônicos. Nem reclamo da quantidade de pistas, que achei até satisfatório, mas a falta de pelo menos 18 personagens fazia diferença. Outra coisa que não gostei foi o modo online, o game não lhe dá escolha de salas. Você apenas faz login online e cai na sala disponível e ponto. Uma pena mesmo. Mas de toda maneira o online funciona e a salas sempre estão cheias.

    Portanto, Team Sonic Racing é um excelente jogo que vai agradar a todos. Gráficos, sons e gameplay estão na melhor fase da franquia. Sonic Racing Transformed é ainda o jogo de Kart Racing a ser batido. Se talvez um Team Sonic Racing 2 melhorar a questão de quantidade de personagens e colocar mais pistas também, quem sabe supera o tão querido Sonic Racing Transformed.

    These days, I've learned to be weary when it comes to "Sonic" games, because you never know what you're going to get out of them: you can getThese days, I've learned to be weary when it comes to "Sonic" games, because you never know what you're going to get out of them: you can get a surprisingly enjoyable title like "Sonic Mania" or "Sonic Lost World," or you can get an absolute clunker like "Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric." Hell, you can even get something like "Sonic Forces," which lands somewhere between being surprising and disappointing. That said, when it comes to the non-platformer titles, it should be abundantly clear that they aren't held in as high a standard as something like "Forces" or "Mania," and so that's why I was able to properly temper my expectations with "Team Sonic Racing." It certainly looked enjoyable, but I was still going to keep my expectations in check and not expect anything over the top. So what did I get out of this new "Sonic" racing game? Well, something that wasn't too bad.
    "Team Sonic Racing," at its core, is a "Mario Kart" clone. There's no two ways about it, this is a game that's definitely riding the coattails of the Italian plumber's brand of racing titles. Still, that doesn't mean there's a lack of effort here, because there is certainly a good deal to like about the game: I love the gorgeous and colorful visuals throughout the courses, I love how the game features so many throwbacks to older games in the series, and the musical soundtrack is pretty amazing, too. And from a gameplay standpoint, this is a smooth, tight racer with a relatively varied mission structure in the campaign mode and an interesting focus on teamwork. The team-based play works well in the main story mode, and it adds up to a game that delivers on most fronts.
    That said, it's definitely got some flaws. For starters, while I don't go into "Sonic" games expecting a brilliant story, I do feel like this one is a bit too juvenile and silly even by the series's standards, and a lot of the constant voiceovers during races can get frustrating because of that. Also, while the campaign is relatively varied in terms of mission structure, I couldn't shake the fact that the game started to feel repetitive because of how many courses were reused. For a rather long, 7-chapter story mode, it felt like they didn't have nearly enough stages to work with, and the fact that they just rehashed the same levels made the game start to slow to a crawl by the end.
    Flaws and all, though, "Team Sonic Racing" is a reasonably fun spinoff and, despite being a "Mario Kart" clone through and through, this is not a bad one at all. It's probably not going to win the series any new fans, but if you're a fan and your curiosity is piqued, go ahead and give it a shot. I doubt you'll fall in love, but you might have some fun with it.
    Final rating: 7 out of 10 "Good"
