Team Sonic Racing Hands-On E3 2018
During our E3 2018 coverage; I was invited by Sega to try out Team Sonic Racing. The game offers the colorful and familiar Sonic characters and players are asked to select their team before starting the race.
I started the race and noted how it handled like many other racing games so it was easy to really get into the action. I also saw the familiar rings throughout the track as getting them offers players some protection against attacks from other players.
Missiles, boosts, and other power ups are available by running them over when they appear and will greatly improve your chances to win.
The track was fun and allowed for players to take multiple paths. My team offered me words of encouragement but did not do much that I could see beyond taking up the attention of other cars from time to time.
When I finished I was curious about the additional tracks and customization options but know that will be revealed at a later date. For now it was a fun and nostalgic filled game that should appeal to Sonic and racing fans.
