Review: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

09 Mar

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed CarIt seems even Sonic the Hedgehog, the “fastest thing alive,” enjoys getting behind the wheel from time to time. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is Sonic and company’s second racing outing after 2010’s Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. The majority of the game is similar to the first: you can play as Sonic and many other familiar Sega faces as you race around tracks based on popular Sega franchises. In short it’s another case of “whatever Mario can do, Sonic can do better” from Sega. But Mario Kart this is not.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on the 3DS isn’t a bad game, it’s just hard to recommend when Mario Kart 7 does just about everything better. I’m not saying MK7 blows this game out of the water, it just edges past Sonic and pals each time it can, with the only exception maybe being the available playable characters. Even so, S&ASRT is a capable game and should be checked out by fans of Sonic and if you don’t have a console to play it on instead.
