Limited Edition Content

Wii U additional features:

  • Wii U GamePad Functionality: Use the GamePad as a map, weapon camera or rear view mirror, utilize tilt controls, or swipe the screen at any time to move the action from your TV to the GamePad’s screen.
  • Wii U Game Modes: Utilise the Wii U Game Pad in exclusive multiplayer modes.  Chase down the competition as Joe Musashi from Shinobi, or use your monkey ball to squash your friend before they collect all the bananas!
  • 5-player Splitscreen: four players on the TV and one on the Wii U GamePad – splitscreen has literally transformed!
  • Playable Miis: Play as Miis with their own transforming vehicle.

Racing Transformed has, literally, transformed the way Sonic and the Sega All-Stars characters race, as now their karts transform into boats and planes when the terrain gives way to water or air. The tracks themselves are based upon retro Sega games, and they also change; the Panzer Dragoon inspired track Dragon Canyon has a dragon that roams the map and destroys a bridge early on in the race. This therefore forces the players to continue racing around the track either via their planes or boats, and means that every track has endless possibilities and versatility when it comes to gameplay. Each track also has many possible routes to take, including a number of shortcuts to be found throughout, offering a great deal of replayability for each course.

Alongside Sonic, a great deal of new and familiar characters emerge to join in this kart racing frenzy, adding up to 27 characters in total. These range from and include older fan favourites such as Gillius from Golden Axe, Joe Musashi from Shinobi, Vyse from Skies of Arcadia, along with the likes of Tails, Knuckles, and more. Each character’s vehicle handles differently, meaning that who you play best as is entirely up to your own personal playing style. You can perform tricks in every vehicle, which means that the All-Star meter, will fill up the more stylishly and daringly you drive; this leads to gaining experience points, and also your character’s All-Star Move should you fill up the bar, which can also be filled by collecting stars that are littered around the track.

Each course you race through has power-ups that can be found throughout, which can be used to throw off your opponents. These range from snowballs, bees, and also offers a defensive power-up, the baseball mitt, which acts as a shield and absorbs the power-up attacks your opponents throw at you and allows you to use them yourself instead. Super power-ups can be found in various hidden and hard to reach areas within the track, definitely giving you the advantage over the rest of the competition, and meaning that each race can be unique no matter how many times you play.

There is an extensive story mode that features sixteen brand spanking new Sega game-inspired tracks, which allows you to unlock characters as you progress throughout. You also earn points for your chosen character for completing races, which add up into a five rank levelling system, unlocking achievements, perk style vehicle modifications, and more, the more races you complete. These modifications can be equipped to alter the handling characteristics of your favourite character’s vehicle, amongst other things. Racing Transformed also offers overhauled multiplayer modes; whilst there is still the incredibly fun split-screen multiplayer, now there is an enhanced online multiplayer mode. Whilst playing and competing online, online races can support up to eight characters at once per race, ranging from the Grand Prix mode and the competitive Battle Arenas, and allows for new track records to be set.

The wide range of gameplay available within this game means that there is something for every Sega and racing game fan out there to enjoy. Whether playing solo, online, co-operatively or competitively, get stuck in and enjoy drifting round every corner, soaring through Sega’s signature blue skies, or speeding through the waves in a wide range of tracks that offer almost endless replayability.

Fun for old and young

Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed (Limited Edition) is best played on the big screen with friends or family. The graphics are great and the transforming part really gives an extra challenge to the game.

Not a match for Mario

Standard graphics, subpar leveldesign and just ok controls. This is not a classic or masterpiece as many suggests. Just a bit below avarage and just ok. It bearely works as a gapfiller for Mario Kart 8 but I am sure that Marios racer most definitely will destroy this mediocre game in every way.

The best version of the game

I played Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed on Xbox 360, and it looks exactly the same. I think the Wii U port is better: 5 players can play locally 4 on the screen, and 1 with the game pad, and there's also exclusive modes. It's definitely the best Mario Kart.

Great multiplayer fun

Although I'm not a huge fan of gokarting games, it has to be said that the multi-player mode of Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is great fun. This is where the game really shines. Bring four friends over and it'll guarantee a great time.

A very good surprise !

Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is surprisingly challenging and the graphics are very nice without any framerate issues. It slows down with 4 or 5 players but it's still playable. This game is a must have if you own a fresh Wii U. I am not a Sonic fan but I love this game!

Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is a very good alternative for Mario Kart. Besides, it's fun that you have different vehicles, since the Cars change into boats or airplanes.

Decent Fun Racer

I've never been a great fan of all the Mario Kart-clones out there, but the lack of variety of software titles for the Wii U does not allow for being choosey. "Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed" is actually a pretty decent racing game, that adds some new ideas by throwing in the concept of self-transforming tracks and vehicles. The ever changing controls for the different vehicles can be confusing, but they work great most of the time. In spite of the fact that extra-weapons are not as effective as they should be, "Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed" is great enough to bridge the time until the release of the next original Mario Kart game.

Great game!

Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is a very good game, with excellent gameplay, good-looking graphics, online play and a difficult solo mode. This is one of the best racing games of 2012.
