Free right now on PSN+

This is free for the Vita and I'm not going to lie I just download all the stuff they offer even if I had no intention of playing it. I was on the throne today and said fuck it. I was expecting a really bad racing game that was clunky and not "fun". I have only done 4 races and I cannot say for 100% yet but I think I might like this game way more than Mario Kart 7 and I really like Mario Kart... The levels are great, I didn't play Diddy Kong Racing so I don't know if you swapped between Car and planes mid level like you do in Sonic (ooo and a boat) but it is bad ass. The music is good. Because of all those things I really want to play it on my big screen and with speakers. I might pick it up for console so I can also play with the lady.

Best kart racer ever.

This game is severely underrated, and if you have PS+, you now have absolutely no excuse not to play it.

Agreed. It's easy to write off everything that features Sonic and friends, but there's enough nostalgia and quality gameplay to make this game worth your time.

This game is good!

I just wish there was some Valkyria Chronicles love in the game. Other than that it's been pretty good. I wouldn't call it great but I'm not really a kart racing sort of person.

It's really a fantastic game. Fun, tons of content, very well made. My buddy played the original and said it was surprisingly good, but I figured he was full of crap. For some reason I picked this one up and put around 30 hours in.

I didn't install it on my Vita yet because I know I'll just start again, and I have a bunch of games to play before things start coming out again, dammit.

So I played it on steam.... I don't believe I enjoy Kart Racers.
