A solid little DLC

While there were better choices for a Downloadable character for this game like Akira from Virtua Fighter, House of The Dead Characters, Billy Hatcher etc. Metal Sonic clearly had a lot of work put into him and feels totally unique, he also is fully levelled so you don't need to unlock mods for him, they're all there from the start! The DLC also comes with a new stage (Outrun Bay) that you can race in. Finally, this pack includes some new stickers that you can use for your driver's license. It's important to mention that all content is available for both offline and online play and you can even play with friends that don't own the DLC via custom game.

More content. More fun.

I bought this DLC pack during a big sale and I honestly wasn't expecting much since most of the time DLC brings so little to the main game that you could as well not get it, but that was not applicable for this one.

Metal Sonic is a great addition to the game, he's a new character, with a unique set of features that don't make him overpowered and dumb down the game, they only make him really fun to play or compete against. Furthermore this pack also adds a great new track that certainly improves the replay value of the game and since the developers didn't forget about us, Steam users, emoticons are included.

For its extremely low price(even when not on sale) and great quality, this DLC pack is a must have for any owner of the base game.

Nice Little Extras

This is a solid DLC with some good extras but don’t expect the game experience to be drastically different. The new map, Outrun Bay is a nice mix of road and water with beautiful beach scenery and jumping platforms, making for an interesting track. Metal Sonic is also a nice addition to the game and he starts at the maximum level so you can pick all his different mods from the outset.

Nice optional DLC with great price

The DLC get you a max level Metal Sonic and his modification for his kart. In addition, it comes with a new track to race on. A nice cheap priced DLC for addition content is always nice. All of these can be used on multiplayer and use it to play with your friends. Owner of the original game should pick this up as it is not expensive and give more variety to the game since the original game itself is solid enough already.

Worth the price!

While he comes with everything already unlocked, Metal Sonic is great. He isn't overpowered like you would expect from DLC, which is certainly a good thing. But more importantly, there's Outrun Bay. This map is widely considered to have the best water section out of all of the maps, and I would have to agree. You can pull off a crazy series of flip at each ramp, which means there's going to be a lot of drifting and boosting in your future.

Almost must buy

Metal Sonic feels like actual new charecter and is often bot in single player modes. He's also available to play online while also using new stickers. There is slight problem with Outrun Bay. It's pretty dull circle map and can't be used in matchmaking games. So it's basically just small extra map. On the other side game let's you play it with friends online via custom game and only host needs to have DLC!

Owners of main game should definitly buy this one: really cheap and actual content.

DLC done right.

Originally an extra for the Limited Edition, Metal Sonic now comes open for anyone to buy. At a low price of £2, you get a new character and a new track. Metal Sonic as a character is pretty good; new animation, new car and NOT a sonic copy. The new track offers a unique seaside area with a lot of things going on.

Sega needs to release more DLC like this. Adding new characters and tracks allows the game to stay fresh. Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed has had a rocky PC start. Quality DLC like this can really help keep it fresh.

Something great to have with the base game!

This is a brilliant addition to the already amazing Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed game. It includes a new character which is widely known around the world as Metal Sonic. The game play does not change although gives players the chance to experience a new character. The character adds a new feel to the game although most of the of the others are good as well. He comes ready with a car, boat and plane, all ready to burn some rubber! Recommended for anyone who has the base game and would like to add on by including more characters! Hope Sega releases more content likes this for the game!
