Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (Nintendo Wii U) Review
14 December 2012
Summary: Sonic Racing Transformed is easily one of the best launch titles of the Nintendo Wii U. I’d give it a high recommendation even if it wasn’t released at the budget price of $39.99, which is a little funny considering just how much stuff is crammed into this game.

Excerpt: One if by land, two if by sea... The idea of Sonic the Hedgehog, the fastest animal alive, driving a race car is a silly one. But Sega made it work in 2010 - Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing was a smash hit in the kart racing genre. Now Sega and Sumo Digital return for the sequel, S onic & All-Stars Racing Transformed . This is a racer that stands tall among the competition and will make you forget, if only briefly, about that other popular kart racing series.
Excerpt: What sets the Wii U version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed apart from its other versions is its clever use of the GamePad, which introduces additional features and modes to the game. Unfortunately, this version also brings a few unwanted problems that prevent it from being a worthy contender to Nintendo’s own Mario Kart racer.

Pros: Dynamic courses and settings, Robust game modes, Smooth controls and handling
Cons: Game-breaking glitches, Visuals can obscure your view, Boring items
