Just two years ago, Sega released a surprisingly solid kart racer by the name of Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. While not revolutionary, the sheer speed of the game and fan service sprinkled in made for a fantastic spin-off for the blue wonder and friends, leaving many hungry for more. Fast forward to the present, and we have a new sequel by the name of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. These famed racers can now “transform” their own vehicles in order to take to the skies and water.
