Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed finally came to the 3DS nearly 3 months after it’s initial release, but the wait was way worth it.
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed takes racing with just cars 2 steps further by adding boats and planes. Almost every lap in a race will be different, 1 lap you will be in your car, the next you could be choosing whether to go the car or the boat route and so on. This game has a great choice of characters ranging from sonic (obliviously) to Alex Kidd and even Danica Patrick.
I love the music in this game. It’s the kind of game you want to have the sound on every time you play it. Though after a few hours it will get repetitive.
This game has some of the best I’ve seen on the system though the shadows do get a bit glitchy at times. The UI is very easy to navigate and is very straightforward and simple.
For me when I buy a game on the 3ds the 3d is a big part of my decision. This game does it very well, the depth works very well it really pops out in your face.
With local play, online play, and download play, multiplayer is a great way to play. You can use any characters that you’ve unlocked, and you could even unlock some stickers to use. Though the online lobbies can be hard to find someone to play with, when you do you could race with the person(s) that you found for as long as you all want.
This is a definite must buy for any 3ds owners who are racing or Sega fans (or both).
