2010 just started and i have already found my game of the year. Sonic&Sega All Stars Racing! This is the kart game of my dreams! Far better then mario kart and its cheap? Well cheaper the most games. This is honestly the best kart racer i have played since Mario Kart DS. Ive been on a huge sonic kick lately and this fuels that. Also im pretty pumped about MK9 lets hope they take some tips from capcom. Also i played TvC for the wii finally. And its no MvC2. The whole three button layout is pretty dull as well.

@jakob187: completely not a joke. Sonic Racing...best game ever. In fact it is so good it took me three days to find a copy because every place was sold out.

It looks fun but it's not something I'm thinking of buying at the moment, maybe in the summer when there's less releases.

Depends on what you consider to be a 'hot new title' really. I've heard some great things about SASASR over at PA though and will have to download the demo once I get back from school. But, calling GOTY in March is pointless. (Plus, everyone knows GOTY will go to Postal 3 [which hopefully will be released this year])

The fact that the game's title on the box takes half the fucking box and is written in at least 4 different fonts made this an easy avoid.

Regardless of whether or not it's ridiculous to consider it a GOTY contender, after reading IGN's review, I can't wait to play it. I'm even more stoked about Banjo being in the 360 version.

I dug the demo a ton- it's basically the HD Mario Kart that we've been clamoring for. I probably will find myself picking up the game sometime down the road, but hey, I don't see why it can't be GOTY material, especially if it's consistently the most fun you've had with a game all year.
 
But...we've still got a whole 10 months to go before you can make such a statement.

I'll give you the Kart game of the Year award for that. Since there isn't going to be another Mario Kart.
 
But GOTY? That's a laugh.

I've been enjoying the game a lot too, definitely wouldn't consider it GoTY material, but it's a lot of fun and has a lot of great references to old Sega titles.  Not sure why so many people consider a solid racer, with a lot of replayability and fun factor is beneath their attention though.  I guess this shows who the real gamers are on this site, huh?

I'll back you up!. i tried the demo with a mate and we raced about 50 times on that one track. its the perfect game for me and my uni mates cos it takes little skill so we can have really close races. The tracks are well designed, and its well made. After a couple hours of racing with my mate we have noticed some stuff that does bring the game down a little but i agree its a great karting game. GOTY, never. but for arcadish racing with awesome all star powers its great. You have to take it tongue in cheek. Im not a huge sega fan so playing as "big the cat" riding a tiny little bike is brilliant, but then he suddenly jumps on the back of some giant huge ass green frog and kicks ass. its one huge awesome game.  
 
In summary!  
 
Positives.  
1. charcters 
2. track design.  
3. imaginative powers.  
 
negatives.  
1. the red rockets are over powered.  
2. "catch up" option removes half the fun and all impact of star moves with mates.  
3. rubber band ai is frustrating, but again remove "catch up" and your good.

The best kart racer since Mario Kart DS is your game of the year? If you're serious about this then you must either love kart racers with an absolute passion or find the huge majority of non-kart racing games depressingly dull.
