As good as or even better than Mario Kart in all catagories. Don't be put off just because Sonic is the main selling point. Great challenge, great controls, great multiplayer. For sure worth a check out if you like party racers such as Mario Kart, Crash Bandicoot Racing and Modnation Racers.

And TF2 characters as racers. Enough said.

Diddy Kong Racing's spiritual successor. Heavy skill required for a kart racer, one of the hardest games to get 100% achievements for both time wise, skill wise, friendlist & luck.

But it's a great game to play online, the AI is super challenging, great to have friends over & play spilt screen 4 players. 9/10 game

Admittedly, an oddball in my Steam game library, one filled with gory shooters, slaughterfests, and other such M-rated material, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is like the stray hippie amongst a population consisting of shizophrenic sociopaths! If you don't like long reviews, just skip to the last paragraph, where I summarize everything!

I quite honestly don't remember just how exactly this game ended up in my library, but I recently decided to play it anyway. Because while I may have many games I still need to play out of my library, I've been desiring a decent racing game for quite some time. Did I expect this game to actually fulfill that desire by being anything close to what could be considered a quality racing game that brought me some great amount of entertainment? Honestly, no, I did not.

But alas, I was surprised! What I expected to be nothing more than a dumbed down racing experience with unbalanced items and cheesy banter between characters that would make me want to turn this into one of those M-rated shooters I own so that I may claim unsavory vengeance upon them for their horrible forced personalities, turned out to actually be one of the few good racing games I've seen on Steam!

How is it good? Well, allow me to explain! Wait... Oh, right, that's what reviews are about... Um... Moving on!

From the screenshots, and the involvement of Sonic and co, in a bright and cheerful-looking environment, one may be brought to the understandable conclusion that this game would only be enjoyable if you were young, or the stereotypical "hardcore" 50-year old Sonic Fan with no friends, who yells "You're too slow!" at every car he drives by on his way to his minimum wage job at the local McDonald's. You would be wrong.

Amazingly enough, this game is actually enjoyable regardless of age, and you really don't have to be a fan of Sonic at all to enjoy the gameplay. I'd recommend this game regardless of the age of the player, as it's obviously safe for young kids to play, but definitely offers an enjoyable experience for older players as well (For reference, I'm almost 19).

Is it for the "filthy casuals"? No, not at all! While a casual could definitely get into the game on the lower difficulties that take nearly no skill whatsoever, a pro gamer could easily find a good challenge on the hard, and expert difficulties!

My only complaint would be how few tracks there are. A total of 16 new tracks, with an additional 4 classic tracks, plus mirrored versions of all the tracks, and +1 new track with a mirrored version if you get the DLC. Thankfully, the game offers a variety of modes to make this small number of tracks less bothersome. Nonetheless, it is a small amount, and new DLCs with additional tracks are unlikely.

Speaking of the DLC, it's not bad, but I certainly wish it offered more than just one single new track. A full circuit of four new tracks would certainly be more appealing. The DLC track isn't really worth it in all honesty, since it's not nearly as interesting as the tracks originally in the game, and there's also a few bugs in it that can be accidentally triggered from time to time (nothing too frequent, so don't worry). Buy it if you really want a new character, and desperately want an extra track. Otherwise, skip it.

So, in summary, a great game for all ages (children or adults), and offers a challenge for both casuals and hardcore gamers, providing a small number of tracks, but a fair number of characters, and overall one of the few good racing games on Steam right now.

I'M. SO. HAPPY.

This is every bit "Mario Kart for the PC". It's full of characters, powerups that aren't too overpowered, tons of maps, tons of game modes for each map. The career mode is both hard as crap, and yet, somehow beatable with persistance. You really feel like you get better at racing, and it rewards you.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, you can split-screen 4-player in career mode. So yes, unlike tons of games designed by morons, this one you can actually level up while having fun with your friends and family.

Super balanced racing game. Better than the first All-Stars racing game. Hard learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, competetive play becomes a blast.

Although I am a great Sonic Fan, I would like to point out, that this game overtime has become a huge pain, and you should have your money spent on something else other than this.

"OH MY GOD, YOU DISAGREE ABOUT THIS GAME BEING GOOD AND YADDA YADDA. DOWNVOTE THIS PEICE OF CRAP REVIEW!"

Oh no, I liked it just like you did, and to be honest I want to make it clear that I had absolutely had nothing against the game. I wanted to reccomend this game, but what changed my mind was this: Exploitation of the Game's mechanics.
Ever since then, I never wanted to play this game again. Many people try to attempt to do these exploits and the results are horrible. ABSOLUTELY NO FAIRNESS OR FUN AT ALL. Chances are, you are going to join a multiplayer server, and have AT LEAST ONE of those people. I'm looking at a whole bunch of them out there, and I am very dissapointed. Yeah go ahead, laugh at me, at least I play fair.

I suggest you buy "Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing" (NOT TRANSFORMED) If you wish to get away from/avoid the unfairness that this particular game eventually provided.

Sure, you can give this game a try, but you arn't going to like multiplayer matchmaking, most of the time you have this ONE GUY that does this bullcrap. So I bet alot of you will downvote this review, but I'm just saying what is the truth, so by downvoting this review you are either A) One of the Game Mechanic Exploiters, B) A person that did not want to hear an opinion that did not agree with theirs. C) A person that found a way around the whole problem (Please list it), D) You automatically assumed this was a hate review about THE GAME ITSELF, or E) You did not even bother to open the review from the community hub and only saw the first two lines of text

But I can't stop you from making choices, but I'm just saying, I don't know why you should be downvoting the truth.

You will like Singleplayer, as it offers fair gameplay, but it's not worth it. The game itself is great and I love it, but I absolutely hate multiplayer, which is a good chunk of the game. I suggest you wait till this game goes on sale.

I love AND hate this game! It's a great single-player game, but it's not worth playing online races. It's almost impossible to find a game against legit non-cheating players. It seems like 70% of the online community are using some type of cheats or trainers to alter the game in their favor, having your car spin-out and sometimes end up facing the wrong direction any time you accidentally collide with them. The cars never react this way during offline races against the computer, so you'll probably find the online matches frustrating at best. Unless you're the type of treacherous, perfidious, miscreant who uses dishonest and underhanded tactics to win.

This game is ok to me. I mainly got it so I could play online but no one ever does anymore. But its a heck of a lot better than the first one.

The good things:

The bad things:

I have it on my xbox.
