'What is with this triumphant return of kart racing games? This is insane! First, Codemasters put together F1 Race Stars which was a solid game, even if it might have misjudged its audience a bit, and now Sega is coming in with this crazy new game, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed. I went into this game on PC expecting a bad port with boring racing and drab visuals, but it's completely blown me away. Transformed has some excellent tracks, an inventive and fun range of silly weaponry to use against other racers, and a cast of characters that, despite being a tad odd and sometimes downright goofy in its diversity, actually showcases all of Sega's current franchises (including those not even being used anymore) all together in one crazy game.'
