IGN - Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Vita Review

IGN After the disappointing LittleBigPlanet Karting and the rather lightweight F1 Race Stars, it’s hardly been a banner year for kart racers. Yet the ever-reliable Sumo Digital may just have changed all that. Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed might have an unwieldy title, but it’s a beautiful, inventive racer that dares to be a little different. For once, the Mario Kart comparisons aren't warranted.

The story is too old to be commented.

This has to be major proof of what's wrong with ign's reviews. I'm not talking about the 7 score, I'm talking how much they contradict them selfs. Look at the pluses and minuses, and I quote: + beautiful looks, then - visually downgraded??!!? Or + thrillingly dynamic tracks then, - poorer performance than CONSOLE versions....( they have a 3ds version so why compare it to consoles?!?). Then its a copy and paste review from consoles , they forgot to erase the quote about split screen multiplayer. Also how can they complain about the graphics but then show not 1 pic or video on the vita version of the game? Fucken sickening to see how much ign wants to hurt the vita. They even recommend you buy the console version when its a handheld game they are reviewing... I mean dam it's a handheld, unless imma put my ps3 and tv in my pocket and hope the bus has an outlet to plug it in.. Why even say that. To sum it all up I'm fed up with ign on vita reviews, they've loSt my trust and respect. They are part of the reason such a great handheld is being ripped unjustly. Until they start to compare it to the 3ds (other than on sells numbers that's the only time I see them comparing the two for some reason)... They'll continue to lose real gamers respect and support.
Btw I love my 3ds this is not a comment trolling on it, its just that's the vitas direct competitor. They should be comparing the two. Not comparing consoles with the vita.

What a dumb reason to give it such a shit score comparing to consoles..

I played the game for a couple of hours and actually never experienced slow down...and the visuals are NO WHERE near as bad as ppl are making them out to be.

THe game runs as it should, and plays amazingly.

This stupid review almost made me skip the game, this is what happens when u outsource your stupid reviews, inconsistent rating system.

this game is at least as good as consoles, but better since you can play on the game, and it stays faithful to the REAL GAME.

9/10 for me, great gameplay and already a patch out to fix bugs.

Also ppl, the graphics are actually very hard to distinguish with the high paced gameplay, I'd say if you really want to know the difference I would say it's like having SSAO on/off in game (Ps3 is SSAO on, and vita is SSAO off), the vita OLED makes the game shine.

Also I'm really impressed by how good the texture work and water geometry is in the portable version.
