Dreamworks All-Star Racing Nintendo Switch Review
I recently had the chance to play Dreamworks All-Star Racing, a new racing game that has hit the shelves. As someone who grew up playing Mario Kart, I was excited to try this game. I was also thrilled to be able to race as some of my favourite DreamWorks characters, such as Shrek and Hiccup.

Dreamworks All-Star Racing is a sequel to the 2011 title DreamWorks Super Star Kartz, and
features many of the same characters along with some new ones from the Trolls franchise.

The gameplay involves collecting keynotes that give you bonus items to use against other players, as well as collecting items from boxes. There are also various challenges you can complete to upgrade your vehicle and unlock new characters. One of my favourite features are the secret paths on each map that lead to a rainbow road, where you can come across high notes and other collectables.

Dreamworks All-Star Racing is a fun and engaging game that allows you to play with others online and in multiplayer mode. While I didn't personally didn’t get the chance to try out this feature fully, I can see how it would add to the excitement of the game.

The music in Dreamworks All-Star Racing is calming and relaxing, which suits the mood conjured as well as the age range of the target demographic. The sound effects of the characters are unique and add to the overall experience, but they can get repetitive if you play the game often. 

There are 20 characters to choose from - with eight available from the start - and you can unlock the others through challenges and other means. Most of the big DreamWorks franchises are represented, with Shrek having the most racers available; including Shrek, Donkey, Fiona, Puss in Boots, Lord Farquaad, and Kitty Softpaws. Other franchises like The Boss Baby, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, Trolls, and even Megamind are also represented. However, some characters like The Croods, Rise of the Guardians, Antz, Monsters vs Aliens, and Over the Hedge are missing from the game.

However, as a Nintendo Switch game, the graphics were a major let-down for me. The visuals were blocky and there was no way to change or tweak them, a feature that is available in similar games. Dreamworks All-Star racing also froze frequently, causing lag. If the developers work on improving the graphics and performance, it could be a great game for both young people and adults.

Additionally, the game is currently priced at around £35.99, which I feel is a bit steep for the quality of the game on the Switch. To compare, there is a similar game called Disney Speedstorm, which is currently free to download and has regular updates.

In conclusion, if you're a fan of Dreamworks characters and don't mind the Sub-par graphics or potential lag, this game is worth playing alone or with friends.
