Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
16 February 2013
Excerpt: While Sega has continually struggled to create a new identity for itself post-hardware, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed serves as an impressive refresher of the company’s legacy. Sega has long had an illustrious history in the racing genre, with classics such as Outrun , Hang-On and Daytona USA , and Transformed effortlessly carries this mantel. It’s respectful of the series’ and characters that once made Sega what it was, and hopefully, what it could be once again.
Excerpt: What is with this triumphant return of kart racing games? This is insane! First, Codemasters put together F1 Race Stars which was a solid game, even if it might have misjudged its audience a bit, and now Sega is coming in with this crazy new game, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed . I went into this game on PC expecting a bad port with boring racing and drab visuals, but it's completely blown me away.
Conclusion: I remember when Diddy Kong Racing first came out. A masochist's wet dream, the playful chimp's one and only racing game still holds a place in my heart right next to Dark Souls. Featuring 3 unique vehicle types, it was one of those titles that was ahead of its time. Now, in 2012 we see a Sega title with a similar idea with a modern day twist.
Conclusion: It is kind of gratifying to see a game so focused on pure, unbridled fun. Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed has no artistic or political message, and it doesn't need to tell a story. It just wants to entertain the hell out of you. And boy does it succeed. It makes me want to bring over a bunch of friends and have a competition and I haven't felt that way about a racing game since Mario Kart.
Excerpt: A worrying and terrifying fact I realised the other day is that those of us who grew up playing the original Sonic the Hedgehog are now more than old enough - in age, if not maturity - to be raising children. These blue-blooded progenies could quite conceivably be at the age where they fancy a kart racer, and both parent and child (in my hypothetical world, at least) could connect over UK developer Sumo Digital's second attempt at the genre. This is actually possible.

Excerpt: Se c’è una lezione che Sega ha sempre faticato a imparare dai professori di Nintendo, è stata quella dedicata agli spin-off e allo sfruttamento sistematico dei propri personaggi. Sfruttamento che Sega non ha mai evitato, finendo però spesso con il muoversi maldestramente tra tentativi mal riusciti che, spesso e volentieri, hanno solo tolto potenza ai nomi e insinuato un certo dubbio nelle teste dei giocatori.
Summary: В своем жанре Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing если не лидер, то что-то около того. Другое дело, что весь жанр утонул в самокопировании и скуке, скуке, скуке. Так, расслабиться на пару вечеров, да и то, если вы олдскульный геймер и знаете героев игр от Sega , выходивших только на игровых автоматах в Японии. Больше вам тут делать нечего – проходите и остановитесь возле Blur , Fireburst или Split/Second . Может возьмите с полки престарелый Re-Volt .
