Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed – Review (360, PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: Every so often you might be inclined to sit back from the hardcore “shoot this evil thing then stuff a blade up its arse in ultra-gory HD” mentality and pander to your inner child with something colourful, something that’s simple to grasp and hard to master, something that, in short, won’t win you any MLG gaming credibility but will make you blissfully happy.
Excerpt: in 1992, has slowed down significantly during its teenage years, seeing fewer releases and even fewer innovations to the original formula of power sliding, shooting items and wacky mascot races.
Look Under The Hood With the Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed Review
2 January 2013
Conclusion: Sonic & All-stars Racing Transformed brings out the best in karting games. It is able to stick up for itself and put down all those naysayers who claim every other karting game is a copycat of or not as good as Mario Kart . The ability to play split-screen at almost any point in the game is great, and you can also take your skills online against the world. The levels really are amazing to look at and pay amazing tribute to the games everyone has come to love.
Conclusion: A brilliant sequel that compares favourably to Mario Kart in the mascot racer stakes, Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed might be hard as nails, but it's a kart racer that's all kinds of fun in multiplayer and proves a rewarding romp played alone. Sharper than a cyber razor cut, to be this good takes AGES.
Conclusion: Check the list yourself; this is definitely a doable 1000 but with a lot of effort Conclusion A would be stellar game marred by glitches, a sharp spike in difficulty, overly aggressive AI and some poor choices by Sega. Overall, I actually really like this game but it is definitely different and I would say that it is not for the better.
Conclusion: Blue skies, great control and real challenge – Transformed has all the hallmarks of one of the classic Sega games it brilliantly celebrates. Still, the less devoted may find it too playful for a hardcore racer, or too hardcore for a playful one.
