Team Sonic Racing adds a creative twist on the arcade racer with its exciting team-based mechanics that put strategy and precision at the forefront alongside blistering speeds across mesmerizing tracks.
Sumo Digital ditches the wider world of Sega for its latest kart racer, but for all that's lost a new focus and inventiveness is found.
A spirited attempt at innovation and some competent driving mechanics are not enough to escape the shadow of either Mario Kart or the previous Sonic & Sega racers.
Team Sonic Racing, despite carrying a tidbit of fun, doesn't stand up to other kart racers today
The team-based mechanics help Team Sonic Racing stand out from other kart racers, but Mario Kart is in no danger of losing pole position in the genre
The Blue Blur is back in this fast and fun kart-inspired arcade racer, with a few twists for good measure.
Sumo Digital is back to hit you with that fantastic Sonic Racing action. Team Sonic Racing has a new focus on team-based mechanics, but it ultimately feels like a step back from the excellent Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The tracks are great, there's a whole of new customization options, and Team Adventure's challenge courses do well to differentiate the game from its peers, but it's a rebuilding year.
In most circles, Team Sonic Racing probably won't unseat Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (or Transformed's ever-enduring legacy if my house is any indication), and that's fine with me. Plenty of folks will enjoy the Sonic focus and many of the tracks would have been fantastic as Transformed DLC. I just wish it wasn't as limited in scope out of the gate.
A pretty solid and good-looking game that manages to satisfy any kind of gamer, altough it lacks the variety and part of the charm os some other racing titles. It gives what it promises, anyway.

Team Sonic Racing is a technically sound karting game, but really only sells its central mechanic well enough in multiplayer to convince you that it needs to be there. It's not helped by only featuring the mostly bland Sonic family of characters and locations, leaving it feeling like an overall downgrade from the fantastic Sonic & All-Star Racing games.
Team Sonic Racing is a strong return to form for Sumo Digital’s kart racing spin-off series.
A nice racing game that pivots around the team idea bringing something new to the genre, but leaving some of the things that made previous Sonic race games special.

Team Sonic Racing is a game full of content, enjoyable to play and with a very well-structured co-op mode. Nevertheless, the title suffers on the medium/long duration, with a design of the tracks not always delighted and the readability of the action sometimes compromised by some aesthetic choices. Team Sonic Racing, therefore, while giving peaks of unquestionable fun, is devoid of that leap, that spark of play that can make the difference.

An extraordinarily competent racer
Team Sonic Racing isn't the best karting game out there. But its well-executed team mechanic changes the way you play, making it a worthy addition to the genre.
When you and your two pals are sharing item pick-ups, driving in each other's racing lines, and skimming past one another for a boost, Team Sonic Racing shines. It offers something different in the kart racing genre.
Team Sonic Racing's co-op racing gimmick fails to elevate it above being an average kart racer, and its roster of racers feels lackluster compared to previous games.
Team Sonic Racing is a fun and intelligently designed, albeit content-light, kart racer. The game's central focus on teamwork gives the experience a unique and engaging flavor and its sense of speed kept me dialed in. But, that isn't enough to assuage the title's evident flaws. From an unimpressive roster of stages to lacking modes outside of Team Sonic Racing's great single-player campaign, I'd be hard pressed to see this game lasting more than a dozen hours for many fans. While the fundamentals are fun, this racer could've used a tune-up before coming to market.
Team Sonic Racing offers a satisfactory experience. If you love Mario Kart 8 and want something on Xbox One, the game should satisfy you in the interim. However, you might want to wait for another, better game like Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
Sega's latest motorised caper is a fun, cartoonish outing that demands group strategy on the circuits
