Sonic and SEGA All-Star Racing (PS3, 360, Wii, DS, PC) Track Overviews

Remember that top ten list of most anticipated games of 2010? Here's a refresher if you don't. Anyway Sonic and SEGA All-Star Racing (we have an all-star theme this Tuesday!) was on the list, so I'm very much looking forward to this game. I don't know whether or not I'll be picking up the Wii or PS3 version. Regardless, here's some cool vids showcasing some of the twenty-four tracks inside this meaty game!

Seaside Hill - Whale Lagoon

Here we have a track from Sonic Heroes based on the very first zone of the game, Seaside Hill. There's Crabmeat robots to avoid, loop-de-loops to ride, and a giant whale that will leap over your head as you race, all with the iconic checkerboard markings on the rock faces.

Jumble Jungle - Treetops

Taken from Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz's second world, Jumble Jungle is home to leafy trails, scenic shots of rainbows and waterfalls, and plenty of sharp turns to test your steering. Just watch out for loose banana peels!

Tokyo-to - Shibuya Downtown

From Jet Set Radio Future, Tokyo-to is home to speed kings everywhere as you race from the man. Watch for neon lights that put that extra buya into Shibuya as well as the tough challenge of traffic!

Carnivaland - Jump Parade

Samba de Amigo gets his own track to call his own in Carnivaland called Jump Parade. Race through winding roads through a colorful city as a bright vibrant sun watches down on you. Just don't daydream and fall off!

Casino Park - Pinball Highway

Enter the razzle-dazzle world of Casino Park as you play through the slot machines, a gigantic pinball table, and whiz by roulette wheels. Hopefully lady luck is on your side in this grueling race!

Blizzard Castle - Icicle Valley

This level from Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg has been turned into a race track. Watch out for icy sharp turns, rolling eggs, and winding roads that could send you over the edge. A race that would do Billy Hatcher proud.

Curien Mansion - Outer Forest

Even The House of the Dead is in on the racing action in Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing! Race around the spooky mansion and even in the haunted house itself. Be careful of dangerous zombies that do nothing but impede your progress!

Final Fortress - Turbine Loop

The last of the initial eight tracks, Final Fortress was the final level of Sonic Heroes. Now it's the final of the new tracks shown. Be wary of dangerous lasers, robots, and gun turrets as you make your way through this perilous and impressive floating fortress!

Stay tuned for a review of this highly-anticipated SPC game sometime at the end of this month!

Did you catch the Galaga sound effects in Pinball Highway?

I am giddy excited for this title. It looks like a blast to play.

I couldn't place the sound effects, but you're absolutely right. Great ears.

I, too, can't wait-- for the game and for reviews to see which version is best.

The Dread Pirate Guy said...

Oh, you know me. I have a HUGE soft spot for the extremely old-school.

I almost targeted it for Galaxian, but some of the later effects cemented what it was to me.

Personall,y I ordered the 360 version due to Banjo and the promise of DLC. I'm hoping ToeJam and Earl and hopefully something from Golden Axe and Phantasy Star will make their way into the game.
