In style of Mario Kart, but for PCArmannn | March 25, 2015 | See all Armannn's reviews »
Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed is a PC racing game I first noticed in 2014 when I was searching (and hoping) for Mario Kart PC announcement. Found nothing as probably expected. However, what I found was this: Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed, a game that seemed to be like a Sonic version of Mario Kart, but FOR PC.
Luckily, it was really so. I got the game, installed it and was amazed on how good it looks. It's not as fun as Mario Kart (Wii) is, but is definitely the best PC racing game in this style.
From the original Sonic characters to Team Fortress 2 characters as drivers, there are plenty of them to choose from. And all of them are fun to use and play with, which is very important.
What I liked are the dynamic tracks, something you could see in Mario Kart as well. On the brightest side note, this game is really great and I recommend it for all racing games fans.

I had a lot of fun with this game! It isn't particularly hard but it sure isn't super easy either. The controls are great and you instantly get the Mario Kart vibe. The different character animations and vehicles are great. I loved unlocking new maps as I progressed and I also loved how different each of them was. I loved the Viva Pinata map. I only tried the online function a couple of times and it worked great. Might be harder to find people to play against, so if you only want this for multiplayer, I would recommend either getting the 4-pack or playing it split screen. Overall, this is a very fun game.

Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed is a fairly good game.The gameplay aspects are fairly strong with a nice arcade feel to it. No instances of rubber-banding have occurred in my playtime, so earning first place in a race is based on your skill. Love the music because it fits the game just so smoothly. The presentation is good, but could use some improvements. As with all racing games, a controller is recommended for best gameplay experience. Overall it is rather enjoyable.
Great job on this one.Snotnarok | Sept. 10, 2014 | See all Snotnarok's reviews »
Let me sort this, firstly this is a solid port in the regards that it has online, local split-screen multiplayer and works very easily with 360 and other game pads. Right off the bat the one issue with S.A.R.T. is many of the characters and tracks are locked and you have to unlock them in single player. A major gaming sin where you get this game to play with friends and it requires a little bit to unlock tracks, characters.
THAT SAID, a hour or two will unlock a lot of it and you'll have plenty of incredibly made tracks, a nice character roster with different options for how they drive. There's a reason Mario Kart 8 has anti-gravity, because this games track design plays out with 3 vehicle modes, car, boat, plane all of them handling well bringing some car physics into each (drifting as a plane/boat, wot?). Speaking of Mario Kart, know what I never liked about those games? The powerful items, the items that will insure you will have a annoying time in any place above last? The items in this game aren't super powerful, meaning there's more focus on driving well and driving fast. Something I'm happy to see as that was something that always drove me mad about Mario Kart.
Enough about that game! I can't say how many tracks there are, but there's a good amount with their own themes, layouts and nostalgic nods to other game series ranging from House of the Dead to Golden Axe.
Look, ya like kart racers but don't have a nintendo console or Crash CTR? This isn't a crap clone, this is competition, again the anti-gravity in MK8 really aiding to that argument.

After playing this on a steam free weekend I didn't want to stop there. This is the best Mario Kart clone on the PC. Join Sonic and his friends in a racing game that borrows from Diddy Kong Racing taking you into the air and on open water. There are plenty of characters to choose from. Admittedly I am not as well known with the other games that most characters originate from. You also get PC exclusive characters like Team Fortress and General Winter! There are 12 tracks and their mirrored counterparts included along with 4 remastered tracks from previous games and their mirrored versions too. While very fun, I got tired of these tracks and wished for more. The controls are a little to adjust to but are finely tuned to how you play. If you have a controller then that's even better. There are a few modes to play by yourself like story and time trial, but multiplayer adds battle modes like Capture the Chao and Battle Race. Each character has their own individual stats adding a serious balance to the game. Along with that each character can level up unlocking modifiers so you can tune each character how you'd like them to perform adding a strategic approach to the game. All in all this game is outrageously fun but I was left wanting more tracks since other kart racers often give more than 12 new tracks. Recommended to any kart racing fan on PC or Sonic Fan OR Sega fan.
