CheatCC writes - The first Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing was pretty much a direct rip-off of Mario Kart using SEGA characters. Apparently SEGA's figured this out, because the first thing that the booth rep said to me as I sat down to play its sequel at E3 was, "we are trying to make this game have its own identity as much as possible." In a way, they succeeded. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is certainly a kart racing game of a different color. Mid-race gameplay changes, unique power-ups, and a truly bizarre cast make this a kart racing game unlike any other.
