Rating: 5.5/10

I must say that I did dive into the iOS version of S&SASR with some pretty lofty expectations, seeing as how I had already played the Wii version. It met close to half of them. I'll start off by saying that this is like Mario Kart for iOS, but with sega characters.

The graphics exceed what I thought was possible for a 3d iOS game. This has to have the best if not close to the best graphics for racing games on iDevices (considering the cartoony look Sega was going for) Not a polygon in sight unless there was supposed to be. The sounds and variety of characters to choose from are great. The local no-wifi-needed multiplayer is awesome.

 But, even with all of this going for it, it still has some fatal flaws. It may be that I was running it on a 2nd Gen iPod touch, but it frequently crashes whenever I try to go into Grand Prix mode, and that's the way you unlock courses. So I'm stuck with 5 or 6  simple tracks.


Another complaint I have is the control schemes. While I like how the racer is always moving forward and I dont have to mash down the A button like in the DS version, I still prefer to be able to hold down the accelerate button. The tilt controls require you to jerk your iPod to turn a smooth turn and/or drift (which is harder than it should be) And the only control pad option they give you is a side-to-side only mini joystick (pictured above) which even worse than the tilt control.

Because of the mix of only being able to slow down by breaking and the bad turning controls, you frequently get stuck against edges of cliffs or walls. This said, the game that looks promising at first can quickly become annoying. 

If you're looking for a Mario kart for iPod touch or iPhone, this is the best thing you can get without jailbreaking your iPod and getting a snes or n64 emulator (note- if you take this route, you MUST own the actual game cartridge of the rom you're downloading to make it at least partially legal otherwise it is illegal and you can get sued and/or put in jail.) I believe this is one of those "you get a little more than what you paid for" games, and it's only 1.99 USD.

It was worth my purchase due to multiplayer and the occasional grand Prix that it doesn't crash on. Now before you go deciding wether or not to buy it I recommend watching some gameplay videos ( rule of thumb: if the cuss word rate is more than 5 per minute, it is a game for patient/hardcore gamers and is too frustrating for beginners, noobs, and mediocre gamers) and reading some more reviews.

Uh okay.

You could certainly use some work. I mean I just clicked whatever review was below yours (which was this) and it has like photos and paragraphs and organization.

Your criticisms seem too jumbled too. Do some more elaboration.

Sorry for my late reaction. This review is okayish. What you could use is a beginners template! ^o^ I'll give it to you here:
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

First of all start your review with an interesting text about the game, for example in your situation with this game: After played Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing on the Nintendo Wii I was quiet impressed by it. The hype for this game was high, did it live up the hype?

Graphics

Talk here about the graphics that the game contains, is it a port? How are the originals? Is it nice looking compared to other games on iOS?

Music

Did you like the music? Try to share one of your favourite tracks here from Youtube!

[Link to youtube, so we can listen to a song]

Gameplay

How well did the game play? Are the controls good? Is the framerate stable? How about multiplayer?

Long Lasting Appeal:

Did this game last long for you?

Conclusion

Did you like the game overall, what are it's best and worst points? State them here. After that tell your score.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Of course go more into detail, just answering the questions isn't good enough :P I hope it helps you!

Copied someone's his template it seems? See the sticky xd Well I agree with his template this is the best and most basic you can have now.
