Mellow Gaming: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

MG-SSR-Transformeed-Thumbnail

I’ve reviewed Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on this site already. You’ve only got to cycle back a few posts for that. The game is criminally under-rated and deserved way more sales than it received. So here’s a Mellow Gaming video about 5 people will watch to help you see just how brilliantly fun and fast paced the game is. People have been calling the reveal of Mario kart 8 as looking like a hybrid of Mario Kart and F-Zero. That’s silly because Mario Kart is not fast. F-Zero is fast. Sonic Racing is fast. Hell, Nintendo should get Sumo Digital to handle an F-Zero game for the Wii U seeing as they can’t come up with any ideas themselves as to what to do with the franchise. Anyway, Sonic Racing Transformed, videos after the link!

Gotta go fast!!

Game Review No.8: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

SSR-Transformed-2

Available on: Xbox 360 (version tested), PS3, WiiU, PC, 3DS, Vita

Bit of a mouthful that title. And that’s after they removed the context giving “Sega” from it. Now they’re just all-stars. All-stars of what? I dunno. Not Sega though… If it was it would have said so right? Fun fact, The devs refer to these games internally as SSR, as in Sega Superstar Racing. That was the original title of the first game until the higher ups decide Sonic needed his name all over dat shit. Yup, despite the fact the Sonic games have been spotty at best the last… oooh… 15 years, they figured the name still had enough value to chuck it on the box. At this time I point out that the Super Smash Bros games aren’t called Super Mario and the Smash Bros All-Star Fighting Country Vacation. Dear Sega, you have more characters than Sonic. Maybe if you used them a little more you wouldn’t feel compelled to rely on the blue hog all the time. Anyway, I’ve got a review to write, for a game I will refer to from now on as SSR Transformed. Because sod typing that full title out each time. Also, Sega Superstar Racing sounds better.

Gotta go fast!
