I haven't downloaded this, but wondering if anyone has? Wouldn't mind a decent Mariokart style game if one came out on the 360..

I was thinking the same thing.  I may download the demo and give it a try when I get time.

I downloaded and played the demo.  I raced with Banjo Kazooie on the one unlocked track.  It's a competent kart racer, but I didn't recognize the other racers other than Sonic.

Gamespot gave it an 8/10 in their review, as did IGN.

Hmm, for less than $40 maybe I will give it a try. Something my wife and I could play together. Just need to find a minor sale for $360.

GamesRadar, too.

I'll be picking it up this afternoon.

I had to pick this up.  I haven't karted since Super Mario Kart so I don't have much to compare it to.  It seems to be quite polished although I don't feel very intimate with it since I know about 3 of the Sega characters.  It'll do 8 player multi and seems like it has a lot of maps and stuff to unlock.  The key is to figure out the drift points as it produces boost.  There is quite a variety of weapons that are available as well when you hit the power doodad.  Add me to your buddy list!  r00b_BC kthx.

My Best Buy didn't have it in.  Hopefully tomorrow.

I played a bit last night.

It really is a very well made game.   It's like a fusion of Mario Kart and Outrun.  The drifting leads way more to the latter.  Plus, they have missions like you'd find in recent Outrun releases.

The graphics are really bright and sharp and the controls are tight.  What more could you want?

Well, I do wish there was some on-screen tutorial about how to use All-Star mode (or even what the hell it is, though I've read about it, but people who haven't would be at a loss).

I haven't had time since the purchase to play.  I plan to get some time in with it this weekend.  I am not familiar with all-star mode.  I must investigate.  I AM pleased wiht how easy it is to jump in MP games.  Too bad you can't have a "driver cam" to watch while in the lobby waiting for a race to finish although they did at least include a progress bar to indicate how long you will be waiting.  I am getting the vibe here that there doesn't seem to be much interest at GT or the tools in #gg for this game.  MORE PEOPLE BUY NOW.

I picked this up today and started playing. Having fun, though of course it is a lot like mario kart (of course that's why I bought it!). Could definitely be up for some MP sometime...
