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.

Simply put.. the best cart racer yet. Beating Mario Kart, Crash Team Racing and any other cart racers that have gone before it. The fact that it's Multiplatform and includes Online Multiplayer this time (The original Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing on PC did not have Online Multiplayer) means this title is going to be tough to beat.
Sporting more challenging AI and far more variety with both tracks and racers, along with the Transformation mentioned in the game's title, this is a serious cart racer for those looking for something with more depth, challenge and all-round badassery.
Not one to miss.
Very fun racing game for all agesLastCerinean | June 9, 2014 | See all LastCerinean's reviews »
I honestly didn't know what to expect when I picked up this game. It seemed like it was going to be a bit young for me, but it was surprisingly very fun. It can be challenging at times based on the difficulty, track, and car mods, but overall it is easy enough to play. I do not like how small the items seem to be. I always seem to miss them when I need them most. But, as you play more and understand how the cars, boats, and planes control, you can pull off more satisfactory stunts. I recommend this game to all who enjoy a good racing game.

For the longest time the Mario Kart franchise has been the one to beat among the newcomers to the kart racing genre, but All Stars Racing might have changed that. Sumo Digital has done an outstanding job with this game. The presentation is top notch, beautiful and diverse locales that even if you're not a SEGA kid you'll appreciate as they all are breathtaking in detail and fun to race through, most change in layout with each lap.
The music is excellent and fits the mood of the game perfectly.
Gameplay wise, the game feels balanced in the sense that your placing on the finish line depends more on your skill than luck and you can unlock a variety of "mods" for each racer so that every character has at least one viable build. The game is bets played with a Xbox 360 controller. My only complaint with the PC version is that in some really rare situations the game will not recognize the 360 controller, but all you have to do is erase the controller config file in My Documents SART folder and open the game again.
