Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Destructoid

  • Summary: The first time I turned a sharp corner next to a goomba and tossed a red shell at King Koopa, I barely knew the world of Nintendo. Mario Kart was a great racing game for its time, providing one of the best arcade racing experiences you could get at home. Having the races and racers come from familiar Nintendo franchises was the cherry on top but not necessarily the main draw.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

IGN
17 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Aside from these visual and performance issues, it’s the same entertaining and pleasingly substantial racer we enjoyed on home consoles. But in light of its technical flaws, we’d only cautiously recommend buying it on Vita. If you own a PS3, Xbox 360 or Wii U, you’d be better off with any of those versions, while those seeking a fast-paced racer that really makes their Vita sing should consider WipEout 2048 ahead of this.
  • Pros: Beautiful looks, Thrillingly dynamic tracks, Some great unlockables
  • Cons: Visually downgraded, Poorer performance than console versions

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed PS3 Review

About.com
14 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Image © Sega Sumo Digital and SEGA didn't build a new theme park ride. They took a hit rollercoaster in "Super Mario Kart" and made it their own with a few unique peaks and valleys and their own design. They would admit it. They get no points for originality. However, they do get points for executing the "Mario Kart" design well for the millions of fans of these characters. Disclosure: A review copy was provided by the publisher.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed review

GamesRadar
3 December 2012
  • Excerpt: With Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, some might wonder why the fastest hedgehog alive would need a vehicle in the first place. Of course, as any game company knows, mascot racing games are a great way to please fans by bringing a roster of favorites together in one game. And with a history as extensive as Sega’s, this might not seem like an easy task, especially when it’s hard not to compare such a game to the Mario Kart series.
  • Pros: Dynamic courses and settings, Robust game modes, Smooth controls and handling
  • Cons: Visuals can obscure your view, Boring and generic items, AI can be too challenging at times

Review: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a love letter to both kart racing and Sega

GameZone
16 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Not one, not two, but three separate Kart racers have been released in a matter of a few weeks. While we liked LittleBigPlanet Karting for its charm and the ease of use to create awesome tracks, we thought F1 Race Stars was simply average. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed looks to be the best offering of kart racing, with high speed cornering, amazing track designs, and most of all, the awesome transforming of your vehicle to adapt to water and even take to the...
