Summary: Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed isn't the Sonic game Sega fans would really want, but when it comes to average cart racers Mario reigns supreme but Sonic comes at a close second if not third from Diddy Kong Racing back from the Nintendo 64 days. But for a cart racer on it's own, Sonic All-Stars holds up, it's a fun racer and if you're a big Sega fan, you'll probably be more awed by the race tracks and music in the game.
Pros: 5 Player Local play, Play on Gamepad, Play online with 12 players.
Cons: Can't choose Mii online, no clone characters online, can't change background music, Player 1 forced to use Gamepad.
Summary: The game isn't bad, it's still a way off from being a true rival in terms of fun to Mario Kart. The track design is generally quite bad, it's easy to get lost. A few bugs here and there - but overall, a good Wii U game (until Mario Kart 8 comes out).
Summary: Sonic Racing has evolved over the years into something that just abouts jostles for the Mario Kart crown where kart racers are concerned. This latest offering is more than a match for the mighty MK, with a solid roster, gorgeous visuals, crazy, interactive courses and plenty of SEGA fan service. The roster is extensive enough, if a little odd at times (Wreck-It Ralph is in there, for some reason - I did read somewhere the justification for this, but I can't recall.
Summary: Should be titled "Sonic & All Stars Mario Kart Rip Off that is somehow better than mario kart but really hard for kids to play". But that doesn't really have a ring to it. Seriously, I love it (As I find Mario Kart too easy, i'm that guy who ruins the game by never losing.) But my little sister finds the game hard. Everyone I know who's played it has stated that the boat driving is very difficult. I love it though so 4 stars outta Shigeru Miyamoto!
Summary: Great price and good game if you like Mario Kart, good HD graphics for all the family plus all control methods can be used. Will keep me busy until Mario Kart out. Only negative is how the vehicles change mid race (kart to boat to plane etc), but good game once used to this! Received quickly and good price at the moment.
