Mario Kart on PC with faster races, more unforgiving AI, and interesting Sega characters and stages makes for a great game. A great game to play with friends online, as well as taking on single player challenges.

If your looking for a great Kart racer to play with your friends check it out and enjoy.

had a so much fun playing this game and its better the mario kart in my opinion
-first of all the plot, well there is no real plot (sadly) , you just have to select a character ( around 20 + 3 from the dlcs and you can lvl up to get new mods to balance your kart stats and play with you own style) then select a game modes (there is World Tour, Grand Prix , quick races , arena for multi ).
-graphicly it's really beautiful and well detailed for a consol port (on ultra) also well optimized even for a potato pc.
-gameplay: easy game mechanics ( arcade racing) with power pickups , each character (from different sega games + bonus characters like TF2 ) has his own different kart with different stats , the levels are inspired for different sega games but the game is very unbalanced when it comes to difficulty ( easy is too damn easy , medium is like hard , hard is like dark souls hard and very hard is near impossible )
-perfect voice acting ,awesome soundtracks ( remixes of sega games main music)
-for the controls ( the bad thing in this games) you need an xbox 360 controllers or use x360ce cause the keyboard is a no go
-multiplayer is still live , you will find some people playing quick races.
-time to time the game crashes but only when you exit the game so its ok i guess no big deal
-achievements works fine but some of them are very challenging
-steam trading cards
well if you're looking for some fun between friends or solo then this game is for you ( no mario kart on pc so its not like you have any choice :p ) better get this one and skip the firt sonic all stars game , worth the money ( better get it on sales 4.99 $)

The last 10 years Sega only offer us mediocrity games.

But Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed...

I'm really surprised how Sega could published such a fun game!

A Mario Kart game that is entertaining with the features I like the most: 4 player local!

I would like to test the online play, but, for now, I'm fully satisfied with this game.

Definitely better than any Mario Kart game I have ever played (and I played all them). Each race is broken into 3 categories: by air, land, and sea so it keeps things interesting. The tracks are very well done and some mimic Mario Kart tracks. Driving mechanics are excellent! A lot of the mechanics remind me of Mario Kart 8; pretty smooth throughout. Music/sound track is excellent and appropriate for each track. Powerups and weapons are meh. This would be the only downside. But because of the variety this game has; weak powerups don't really bother me much since every other area of this game is so well done. Highly recommended especially on a sale!

This game is better than it has any right to be. Sega hasn't made an interesting game in a decade or so and has made some of the worst games of last decade (e.g. Sonic '06).

There is nothing spectacular or innovative about this game, but it is a very solid mascot cart racer for PC, with a reasonably high skill ceiling and a reasonable amount of catch up mechanics (AKA random BS). The catchup mechanics are there to keep the game interesting for less skilled players and to always provide some hope even if you're slipping behind in single player. These catchup mechanics are a bit less infuriating and random than the blue shell and lighting mechanics of a Mario kart game.

Most levels have you switching between 2 or 3 vehicles (cart, boat, flyer) which you do automatically by going through rings. On many levels there are alternate paths.

The skill ceiling comes from the fact that there are always more options than just pushing the gas and steering.

There are several different mechanics that allow you to accumulate small speed boosts, which you are constantly doing: Slide long enough (hinders the ability to turn the opposite direction while sliding), do a trick jump, go over a speed boost arrow/through a speed boost ring. Ontop of this you have the usual environmental hazards, opponents and weapons; so you're always trying to juggle 2-3 different things which gives the game longevity and interest.

The game has well designed levels based on classic sega game franchises. It is rarely difficult and confusing to see where you're going. Transformation rings and speed bosts are well telegraphed; the game does not rely heavily on memorization.

This game has no native support for and does not work well with racing wheels; it is best played with a controller. It has local multiplayer.

I already had the android version of this game and it is great but the PC version is so much better as it has more characters to choose from and more tracks to race on. The graphics look very good better than anything on the ps3 or xbox 360 and probably on par with a lot of xbox one and ps4 stuff and even runs on max setting on my ordinary non gaming laptop.The game is fun and adds something new to the kart racing genre with vehicles that transform from cars to boats to planes. I just wish sega would put out more great games like this or like the ones they used make as a console manufacturer. Bottom line this game is good enough to challenge mario kart as the king of kart racers and with the transforming aspect of the race SEGA still does what nintendon't.

This game is pretty cool. I've always enjoyed racing games, since I played them on the very first Xbox. I'm not a big fan of the show "Sonic" or the characters for that show. But this game has other characters, so it's fine in my eyes. This game is basically like Mario Kart, but for the PC. The whole thought of a car turning into a boat or airplane is pretty cool too. Only problem I've ever had in this game is my one friend would sorta lag in her game. She would always get 6th place, because some how half of the people would lag with her. So basically I'd always get first and she'd get 6th. It kinda makes no sense tbh. But I always considered her as coming in second place. No one else seems to have that problem. It's worth the buy in all honesty. >>And, If anyone knows a fix that she can try, you can message me.

We may never get the answer to why sonic needs a race car, it's obvious why he needs a boat and a jet. Buckle up and put the pedal to the medal in this high speed kart racer that hits the seas and takes to the sky.

At the core it's the same formula of 'Mario Kart' dressed up with sega (and friends) characters and tracks. Turns out the formula still works and creates a great looking racer that also plays well.

I used to never understand what's the fuzz about this game. It's just a game where sonic drive a car, yet it get a lot of overwhelmingly positive feedback. Then there's a sega sale with 90% price cut, so I think what the heck I might as well get one. And the experience? is amazing!

Despite the fact this game were released under the seventh generation of console, it has a great graphic. Running smoothly 1080p 60fps on my steam link. Heck, I can even run this game on my 2006 Core 2 Duo with medium setting and a decent fps. Works great with my F710 without a problem at all.

The tracks are amazing! and Ryo Hazuki is still the best thing about this game.

10/10 would ride a bike over a boat

As good of a Mario Kart clone as one could hope for. The weapons are different, but great. The speed, and variety of the game really makes the game stand out. I was not expecting much, but was really amazed with this title. The power turning handles well on a controller. The game handles really well, and the stages are really well built and desined. The desingers here really created a great deal of diversity.
Online pairing is just as great (when there are people on,) as offline challenges. Over all, I would recomedn this title, if for nothing else, to kill time waiting for Mario Kart 9.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is one of the best racing games I've ever played. Unfortunately the multiplayer is pretty dead these days. I got this game when purchasing the Sega Collection for a very nice deal a couple years ago. Being hopelessly bored one day, I decided to try the game out. I was not disappointed.

I recently played Mario Kart 8 for the first time on a friends Wii-U. Sonic racing was easily better. The game can be a real challenge sometimes. The scenery is amazing throughout the levels as well. I found myself playing the crap out of this game until I'd pretty much gotten every achievement besides the multiplayer ones.

If you can find this game cheap and don't mind single player racing, this game will take you for a wild ride that you will not soon forget!

Well... It has "Overwhelming Positive" rating on Steam for a reason.

Mario Kart was always a fun game to play, all other Kart racing games were pale in comparison. In early 2010, Sega released Sonic & All-Stars Racing and it was okay but in no means could hold up to Mario Kart games, it's controls weren't tight, the fun factor just wasn't there.

Then in 2014, Sega released Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed and it was perfection - Across multiple platforms and a flawless PC port to boot.

My preference has always been Sega over Nintendo, the last Sonic kart game let me down but this game is super smooth and a very enjoyable experience. What started off as a mere Mario Kart clone (as some games attempt to do), Sonic & Sega All Star Racing Transformed ultimately evolved into it's own thing.

In this game you will be able to play as your most beloved Sega characters - Heroes ahd Villains alike! This includes Metal Sonic from Sonic CD, Ulala from Space Channel 5, and Ryo from Shenmue. The PC version has an exclusive: You can play as Team Fortress 2 characters. This should not be a surprise to anyone.

The tracks are the most creative I've ever seen in a kart racing game. Especially the Panzer Dragoon Saga and Nights tracks.... they contrast wach other so well making it hard to get tired of the game anytime soon.

The controls are balanced and the speed of the game is very satisfying. The A.I is great, the online multiplayer works without any issues.

If you love kart racing or competitive multiplayer games, be sure to try this one out!

There is a Single Player Campaign with collectables, which is also how you unlock more characters and locations/tracks. There are cool non-race portions which include "Traffic Attack" or "Drift To Win". These make the game enjoyable as well.

Cheers!
