Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is an arcade style racing game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Microsoft Windows, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, iOS and Android.

Gameplay

Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed is an arcade style kart racing game in which you race against other players using characters from the Sonic series and other Sega games through a variety of Sega themed courses, each of these courses last a total of three laps and many tracks have gimmicks that players must traverse in order to complete the race. Each character's vehicle has three different modes; kart, boat and plane, which are all used in the courses throughout the game, offering three different ways to play. This ever changing form of vehicles - as well as giving the game its name - helps Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed give a unique perspective on the classic kart racing genre. Each character has his or her own vehicle and their own stats, making characters play differently. While Sonic's kart is very fast it has poor handling, while AiAi's kart is all-round balanced, neither good or bad at anything.
