Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed: The Kotaku Review

Kotaku: "Off-putting difficulty spikes and rigid performance demands overwhelm what should be an engrossing career mode and what is a richly illustrated tribute to Sega's greatest hits."

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow, they gave it a "NO". That's surprising. Oh well, I enjoyed the demo and I bought it straight after. Getting it for Christmas

Gotta be worth £25 for the limited edition right?

This is the only negative review I've seen for this game so far. Weird.

It's a good game, but I tend to agree with them.... the game gets way too hard, even on the medium difficulty setting....

I'm all for a challenge, but the hard level is ridiculous.

Add in the fact that there are no advantageous shortcuts in the game at all, and it's a little disappointing.

In addition, I agree with him on this point, I actually dread transforming into the boat and the plane... I personally prefer the classic levels where you stay in a kart the entire race..... I hope Mario Kart Wii U doesn't try and go for the 'transformation' angle like this game and Mario Kart 7 did...

Guess I'm a purist when it comes to my kart racing...

Ha, even the comments section there all disagrees.

This is a brilliant and fun game, 90% of the public seem to think so, 90% of the gaming press think so, and obviously I think so. Kotaku has its head up its ass on this one.

Sure it's hard on HARD and EXPERT difficulty, what do you expect. People have gotten far to used to instant gratification and hard modes being relativly easy. Im enjoying the challenge, ive gotten past every hard mission and I'm chipping away at expert. It's great it has that replayability and you feel great accomplishment when you finish something on the higher difficulties.

Most sites are saying Mario Kart should take some ideas from this game and yet Kotaku say the opposite...what's up with that?
