I don't want to sound obsessive, but I would really like to hear what people think of Transformed. I'm thinking about getting this game, but I wanted to hear some thoughts on it first. If you haven't played the game, please don't post (unless you're posting a review).
If this has already been done, please direct me to the proper thread and I will speedily delete this one. Thanks. :)

From what I've played, the game is really quite good. The cars handle just like the previous game, the boats handle like they do in Hydro Thunder, and the plane sections are exciting - though they require a bit more work to master. This game is most likely a no-brainer at its $39.99 price tag.

Thanks! I've been real interested in this game since I heard it was coming to Wii U. However, I'd heard that early builds had issues and wanted to make sure those had been addressed. Thanks again! :)

No problem. I've played the XBOX 360 demo and spent 30 or so minutes with the Wii U version and didn't come across any slowdown or inconsistent frame-rates.

It apparently hasn't arrived in Quebec yet. :/

I'm still waiting for my preorder.

Played about an hour of this with my 4 year old son this morning. He loves MK on the WIi and 3DS, and so he really wanted Transformed once I showed him a trailer.

Seems like a solid kart racer. It's really cool to be able to play two player without split screen. P1 with the gamepad gets the gamepad screen, P2 gets the full TV screen. More than 2 players will split the screen for the non-gamepad players. Frame rate seemed rock solid with the simultaneous dual displays.

I'm a little disappointed that the gamepad does not support tilt steering, however the analog stick steering control work perfectly well. And although I haven't tried it, I assume that no one has to use the gamepad if everyone wants to use tilt/Wii Wheel controls.

EDIT: I haven't really verified the lack of tilt controls on the GamePad. However they didn't seem to be listed in the manual.

In the wii u specific trailer it showed you could use tilt steering with the game pad. It'd be very disappointing if u couldn't

@LEGEND_MARIOID it's possible I missed a control method to do this. There are a couple of different control styles listed in the manual, but they were just different button arrangements, and I haven't tried to change the controls yet. I won't be able to try it again until tonight though.

I just found this review. I don't know how reputable this place is, but the game sounded excellent. Also, it confirms being able to steer by tilting the Game Pad. :)

Although this looks great (and I'd like to support our local devs!) I wasn't sure the budget could stretch to buying this at launch. I figured the kids could just carry on playing MKWii until The new MK came out. Then I saw that this is only £29.99 brand new! What a bargain, I'd recommend everyone goes out and buys it.

I hear the Wii U version is plagued with bugs.

Will wait and see.

@ocelot20 - I'm not sure. I haven't heard much about it. I know that the Wii U version will not support voice chat, but that's not much.

I didn't hear that. Although I did hear that the PS3 and 360 versions hack your bank account.

I think it was early, incomplete demos that were riddled with issues.

I found another good review here. However, it does sound like the game has a bug problem. On the bright side, it sounds like the developers are doing there best to patch the problems. I'm still willing to give it a try. What do you guys think?
