Game Profile

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is changing the rules with a new thrilling racing experience featuring Sonic the Hedgehog and a fantastic cast of SEGA All-Stars competing across land, sea and air in vehicles that fully transform from cars, to boats, to planes.

Following on from the huge success of Sonic & SEGA All-Star’s Racing, the characters now have their own unique transforming vehicles designed to take advantage of the varying terrain. The line-up on the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed grid sees SEGA favorites – including Sonic the Hedgehog, Dr Eggman and AiAi – return to battle against newcomers that include Gilius Thunderhead of Golden Axe and Vyse of Skies of Arcadia.

  • Brand new dynamic environments and tracks: Inspired by SEGA’s illustrious gaming history, tracks include Dragon Canyon (of Panzer Dragoon fame) and Super Monkey Ball’s Temple Trouble
  • Fully transforming vehicles: As players race across land, air and sea, their vehicles dynamically transform from cars, to boats, to planes; each vehicle is uniquely customized to complement its character
  • All-Star moves: Incredibly popular in the first installment of the game, the All-Star moves return with a brand-new mechanic that powers up the more daringly you race
  • Fair weapon system: An all-new system ensures that weapons can be blocked or evaded once you gain the skills to do so, creating a unique racing experience for each player
  • Enhanced multiplayer: Play with up to eight people in online multiplayer mode
  • Multiplayer game modes: Grand Prix and Battle Arenas

SEGA may no longer be the same company that bloodied Nintendo’s nose during the glorious days of the 16-bit console wars, but it still has a keen fan base and a truly amazing legacy within the games industry. Even so, there have been numerous occasions...

I think this will be the kart game I'll be playing next gen. Unless nintendo blows my mind with the next mario kart, and not just on the graphics front.

I loved the first one for Wii. I wonder what it will look like on Wii U? Or the 3DS XL? But this game seems a whole lot more action-packed that the first one. With a whole lot more stages. Plus a variety of characters. XD

I enjoyed the Wii one, but the tracks seemed to lose decorations and obstacles when playing with friends. That was a let down for me. I'm sure Transformed will deliver in the multi-player department, though.

Sounds dumb. Danica Patrick, whose NASCAR career has made people forget she was even an Indy Driver, is now in a Sonic game. Blasted corporatism.



GreatPlayer said:

This is what is called a next generation game. Kart racing games are outdated - what we need is a racing game on not only on land, but also on sea and sky!

This game is very nice, it feels a bit like Mario Kart 8, just one BIG PROBLEM, the game keeps freezing... so you have to reset your Wii U and start from the scratch, pretty frustrating especially for little children.
