    Utterly fantastic game, a real gem – everyone should play it.

    Serious?

    I gave it a chance. Played it for several hours, and while it indeed is a good game, the fun factor was zero for me. Just didn’t like it at all.

    I liked it when I was actually racing a lot. Some of the mini games you had to complete to unlock things were tedious though.

    Zero fun factor? What the hell are you smoking?

    You’re driving a car, that turns into a plane, that turns into a boat. On an aircraft carrier! What more do you need?!

    I’m with Gheritt, it was absolutely brilliant. The only thing that’s truly controversial is the fact that it’s truly challenging. It’s not the safe sort of auto-piloted karter we’re used to, and it’s not exactly kid friendly.

    I hope it performs well enough to stay in production though. It’s miles and miles ahead of Mario Kart.

    It’s good to see Sega doing well. And yes, it’s fun, fun, fun!

    I think the greatest irony of this franchise is the very fact that it is, indeed, so much fun to play.
