Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is the brilliant racing video game developed by Sumo Digital, and is now brought to you on the Wii U, Nintendo’s innovative gaming platform. This game is the eagerly anticipated sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, which was released in 2010. Ideal for retro SEGA enthusiasts or fun with family and friends, this graphically overhauled game offers exhilarating co-operative and competitive racing gameplay that can appeal to all ages.
Limited Edition Includes:
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.

Sonic returns in Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed (Limited Edition). the sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. It's better than ever. It's full of races, all kinds of challenges and a wide range of characters. It's a shame about the few bugs, but that rarely occurs.
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed (Limited Edition) is a valid alternative to Mario Kart. It's extremely funny and addictive.
Good, 5 stars!
The game is a very good "mario kart-like" and I enjoy it: 1) A Grandprix mode with 5 championships with 4 races 2) A career mode where you learn the basis, drift and turbo and unlock new pilots. 3) a multiple players and online mode The only thing I dislike in the game is the fact that items aren't easy to catch sometimes and "the all-star" item is too powerful.
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is awesome, and for the price I bought it for it's an absolute steal! Must purchase for anyone a fan of Mario Kart or similar games. Love the guys at Zavvi, keep up the good work! All the way from down under in Australia!
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is a great game, with awesome game play and maps like Mario Kart! It combines racing, boat racing and flying!
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is the best since mario kart. I recommend!
Excellent game! My niece loves the game. I like the game as well. Very good price.
If you like Mario Kart and LittleBIGPlanet Karting or other games of this genre you will have a great time with Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed LE. One of the main draws of this title for me is the 4 player offline mode which is good for when you have your friends over--online multiplayer is also available for up to 8-10 players I believe (have to double check the exact number). There's also the power ups and the vehicle transform capabilities plus many more features! If you're trying to decide whether or not to pick this one up I definitely recommend it.
Me and my kids like this game very much.
I bought Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed for my son, but instantly I fell in love with this racing game. It features nice graphics and addictive game play. I actually have a lot of fun unlocking trophies.
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is quite a funny game. It's very interesting if you want to play with friends and features colourful and nice graphical effects.
If you enjoyed the first iteration of Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed (Limited Edition) you will love the second one, It has a long and challenging campaign, many cool split-screen multiplayer modes (straight race, capture the flag, battle arena etc.) as well as the auto-switching between land, sea and air. Two complaints: firstly, the Metal Sonic DLC ruins the balance of the game as the character is very overpowered and secondly the frame rate can be quite choppy Don't be fooled into thinking this is a kid's game. The cartoony graphics are a mere veneer over a challenging game that will require considerable skill and patience to beat, while at the same time offering an easy difficulty mode to make it accessible to all. I recommend it.
One of the best games on the market, certainly the best Kart game! Great Price too!
The first Sonic & All Stars Racing was good but Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is excellent.
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is a really fun, colourful game. It features some great race tracks.
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is a great game if you are a fan of sonic.
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is a fantastic karting game. It's very reminiscent of MarioKart 64, with good single player progression. Some of the tracks can be a little busy and finding your way can be difficult. It's an awesome party game as well.
Really good sequel to the first game, with a lot more to do. Challenging and the new features are great, would definitely recommend.
