Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3 | Edition: Limited Edition

Sonic and the All-Stars cast line up on the starting grid once again to battle for supremacy in the ultimate race. Compete across land, water and air in incredible transforming vehicles that change from cars to boats to planes mid-race. Master your driving skills as you drift, barrel roll and boost to overtake your rivals, or use your weapons tactically and unleash your All-Star move to gain the winning advantage.

It’s not just your fellow racers you need to watch out for, as the road falls away beneath you, new routes emerge and your vehicle transforms to take advantage of the terrain. Discover alternative routes and short cuts as you perfect the course in this adrenaline fuelled dash to the finish line - racing will never be the same again.

Features:

  • Dynamic Tracks: Take to land, sea & air as you race through 16 dynamically changing courses inspired by SEGA’s illustrious gaming history. Discover alternate routes, find new power-ups and avoid emerging hazards as you race to victory – every track feels different.
  • Choose Your Racer: Race as over 20 legendary All Stars. The starting line-up has been transformed as new iconic characters from the world of SEGA join the race. What other game sees a hedgehog battle it out against a monkey, a sky pirate and an axe wielding dwarf!
  • Fully Transformable Vehicles: This is no ordinary race. Each character is equipped with their own unique vehicle that can transform into a car, boat and plane to take advantage of the changing terrains. Each vehicle handles differently and players must master all three to triumph.
  • Tools of Devastation: Utilise an arsenal of devastating weapons which require skill to aim, shoot, evade and block. The All-Star Moves also return, this time the more daring and stylishly you race, the more your All-Star meter increases allowing you to unleash carnage on your opponents!
  • Ultimate Gaming Experience: Old rivalries can be settled and new ones created in up to 10 player online. Journey through the All-Stars’ world to take on a huge range of modes and challenges, including Grand Prix, Battle arenas and an incredible world tour.

This is an excellent kart racing game.
Sega has greatly improved the elements of the first episode, a good Mario Kart clone, into something new with a distinct personality. The transforming mechanic adds great depth to the gameplay, in a completely different way from Mario Kart 7. Here even the tracks themselves transform after each lap in clever and interesting ways. The career mode looks lenghty, and the game can be quite challenging (thankfully without the presence of unfair powerups like the infamous blue shell).
If you are into kart racing games, you should buy this game. On PS3 it's the best you can get.

I am a huge fan of anything to do with Sonic and Sega; and I'm a lover of racing games. I knew this would be sort of along the lines of Mario Kart as a competitor in the market. However this surpassed my expectations. Although there aren't many tracks there are loads of characters to unlock and the on-line play is by far the best part of the game. The career modes such as Grand Prix and World Tour are how characters are tracks are unlocked and is quite fun by itself. There are three ranks; A B and C which determine how easy the CPU opponents are to beat. A being hardest and aiming for first place and C being easiest aiming for third place. A rank gives the player three stars if first place, B two and C 1. The stars are used to unlock gates to other races and also to unlock characters using a map system. The transformation part is one of the most unique elements of game play. All of the tracks have sections that turn the vehicle from a car to a plane or boat at certain points in the game which gives different controls and handling meaning it's not just as simple as holding accelerate and drifting to reach first place like more generic racers are.

I would say any fan of racing games or Sega games should defiantly pick a copy of this up; it's hard to put down when you do though! As a huge Sega fan since I was a kid it's no wonder I love this game as there are some nostalgic tracks based on things such as Golden Axe and House of The Dead which makes it great for the older gamer as I was a die hard fan when these games were about; whilst also including tracks from more recent games from the Dreamcast Era such as Samba De Amigo and Skies of Arcadia and those of Gamecube and beyond such as Billy Hatcher and Sonic Heroes.

Brought for the kids at Xmas and thoroughly enjoyed by all. They are happy just racing each other but my hubby has been doing career mode and finding it challenging in places as it should be.

This game is the sequel to the already great Sonic All-star racing. Just like the other game it features a lot of characters from the sega games and tracks that mimic the levels found in those games. For a start I'd like to say that this game does run great on the ps3 and the waiting times aren't long for loading but I have already run into a problem with one track. Burning Depths track (from Burning Rangers) is quite graphically hungry and although one play of the track seems to work fine, if I chose to replay the track again and again trying to complete a mission the sound of the music would disappear leaving only sound effects and the whole game itself would then suffer lag and sound issues which don't get fixed until I restart the whole program. This however is the only problem I've had and it's really not a big one as long as you don't replay over and over without cutting back to the main menu.

Just like in the original racer each of the characters has their own car to race in. There are some differences in the characters available this time around though. Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman, Shadow, Tails, Beat, Ulala, B.D.Joe, Amigo and Alex Kidd are still here, the other racers from the original have been replaced with others. Some of the characters are unlockable and others appear ready to play like MeeMee and Ralph from Wreck it ralph.

The big difference in this game to the original is the transformations. Cars can now change into planes or boats depending on where they are on the track. The transformations are really smooth and it really makes the game more fun. It also means there's more interesting tracks such as all the flying on the NIGHTS track.

Bought this game recently and I'm glad to say I was pleasantly suprised. It's very fast paced and the courses are really great. When I first put it on I have to admit, I was terrible. From playing mario kart a lot on the wii, it was a big change as it is a lot more fast paced and the tracks look a lot better. It didn't take long to get used to it though, and I can place well now. Unlike mario kart, the computers are good and give you a good race, even on the medium setting. A lot of characters to choose from with their own strengths e.g. sonic is good for speed of course. The fact the cars can change into boats and planes is also really run and adds a bit of variety too it. The boats are fairly hard to control though, especially if you turn too quickly..

Each character has only one car specific to them, which can be a good/bad thing. It gives each character their own identity, but it would be fun to swap them up at the same time.

A couple of bad points then - Some of the events on the world tour aren't to my liking. Ring race in particular where you have to fly through loads of rings before you run out of time is particularly tricky, and the boost challenges can be irritating. It does take quite a while to unlock more Grand Prix races, but their is a good number of them which is welcome.

The main flaw though, is that there needs to be more items. There is 9 I believe, and even if they gave the game another 3 (through an update or something) it would make it a bit more diverse and fun. Also the ultra boxes (which give you 3 of an item) only seem to give out fireworks which is a bit frustrating.

All in all though this is a really good game and definitely worth the money! Buy it now!
