Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed

Recommended Posts

Hm.

For some reason, when I think about great F1 designs, I don't think of the Tyrrell P34. I dunno, maybe I'm just weird :P

It certainly is among one of the weirdest, and I think weird is ideal for a cartoony kart racer.

It just doesn't seem weird in a cartoony way, it just makes me say "how does that make sense?" I guess I just am too picky :P

The Daytona car turns into a Dreamcast controller boat. Let me repeat that:

Also, the After Burner track worked out much better than I was expecting. AND DAT MUSIC. Edited by KyleJCrb

Picked this up on Friday for the Xbox 360- and at a nice price too! The first game was my favourite kart racer; this is just plain one of the best racers I've played. The soundtrack amazing, the actual racing is nice and weighty and a lot tighter than the first one. There's 10x the amount of single player content, and the transforming mechanic is brilliant. With the rules of the road changing every 30 seconds or so, racing strategies need to be adjusted on the fly, and each vehicular state is as great as the other. Which is a relief, as I was pretty nervous about this aspect of the game - I did not want to be hanging out for the next transformation sequence purely because one state was weaker or less polished than another. I cannot recommend it enough. ESPECIALLY if your a Sega fan. My first runs on the NiGHTS and Burning Rangers courses near damned brought me to tears. And it was especially awesome to see DiGi Valentine and TRiPPY's names up there in the credits sequence! DiGi has been teasing me for ages about how much I was gonna love Transformed. Well, kudos my friend, you were right!

I don't know if it still feels like a kart racer, it's more like an OutRun 2/Hydro Thunder/Afterburner hybrid on hardcore love drugs. Which is fine by me.

Can't wait to hear of everyone else's experiences with Transformed. I'd say it's a Mario Kart killer, but like I said, it feels less of a kart racer now. Either way, it's brilliant.

I'm a pretty big Sega fan. I'm tempted to buy this game right now, though money is a bit tight. From what I've seen the tracks look excellent and varied, there's a sizable roster, gorgeous visuals, everything looks great. I'ma add it to my Christmas list for sure.

I got this game (and a new PS3, since the old is broken) for Christmas. So far, I'm really enjoying this game. For the most part, it pretty much blew the first one out of the water.

Oh and before I forget, the results for the DLC challenge are as follows...

1) Ryo from Shenmue

2) Hatsune Miku

3) Segata Sanshiro

Sorry for not telling you the results sooner. But still, thanks for voting.

I'm so glad they included DANICKA PATRICK. Gamers are well-known progressive NASCAR fans and boy do we love our immersion-breaking characters.

On another note, this is easily my favorite Wii U game. I love trying to do the challenges on expert. I've been able to power through except for the traffic challenges. Those are only possible on Hard.. that's what I choose to believe.

It's also nice that everyone has their own screen in 2-player races.
