Is this available for digital at all? Or is it physical only? Cant see it anywhere on the xbox store to pre order 

Yeah i've been looking for this on PSN, seems to be on the HK store but no where else. Not even on steam.

I'm astonished that Sega decided to limit this to just the Sonic universe and not continue with the 'Sega All Stars' route.

 

true story: when I was testing the DC HDMI adaptor, I let my son take JSR for a spin. Showed him the basics, on Shibuya GG...

 

weeks later we were playing Sonic Racing Transformed (it's on the xbox one 360 BC list), and he picked Beat, "from that skating game".

 

You can't BUY that sort of recognition. I'll have to show him space channel 5 at some point.

It's.... Fine. The soundtrack is ace and it looks gorgeous and it has a gatcha machine for mods and bullshit but I think it's telling the races I enjoy the most aren't the ones with the team mechanic. More time required, obviously. I'm a little sad they went entirely with Sonic. Things like the Afterburner and the Samba De Amigo stages  in Transformed were incredible.

Carrier Zone is the best track in Sonic Transformed.  

 

It's hard to choose the best track in Sonic Transformed, but one thing's for sure, it definitely wasn't one of the sonic ones.

So first impressions. 

 

Frame rate is all over the place (PS Pro). 

The team mechanic feels shit with AI. Maybe it’s better with other humans with some strategy. 

The music sucks. 

The weapons are uninspired. Bomb, missile, boost. The best one is that classic Sonic staple, the Cube. Which drops a cube in the track for people to crash into. 

The tracks so far feel lame. 6 worlds each with three tracks. Green Hill Zone? No, you have Planet Wisp, Seaside Hill, Glacierland,  Casino Park, Sandopolis, and Rooftop Run. I must have missed many Sonic games. 

In game credits for loot boxes to upgrade your cars. 

Characters. Knuckles is a surf bro. Shadow is emo. I don’t know who the shit Silver, Rouge, Zavok and Omega are. 

While you’re racing there’s constant ‘battle chatter’. Shadow goes “thanks teammate” in a menacing way which sounds like he means “die teammate”. One character is called Chao. They look like Pikmin. 

 

 

So yeah. Not hugely impressed. Try to find a positive. It’s a bit like Mario Kart I guess ?

Agree with the above, very disappointing. The driving feels dull and slow. I haven't played transformed in a long time, so i can't remember it being like that. I suppose the variance with the vehicles transforming did something for it also the tracks were alot better.

Bought it on Switch.  Game runs amazingly well - even in handheld mode.  Very crisp and clear with no slowdowns.

 

I played a couple of hours last night and I'm really enjoying it, though I do wish they went the Sega All Stars route instead of just Sonic.  The team mechanic takes a bit of getting used to, and I imagine will be more fun online with real people.  If you're on the fence I recommend it for the Switch just for the portability factor.

 

Ultimately, however, it will just be compared to Mario Kart and it's definitely not as good as that.

There’s an adventure mode in Sonic Racing! It’s got speech bubbles before you go into each race and looks like an iOS game.

Fuck, no. Just a map that serves no apparent purpose other than to provide a sequenced structure for a bunch of races.

Played about an hour of the switch version, it's ok. Really nothing special. It's annoying as I've been really looking forward to it.

Maybe it'll grow on me the more I play but it's Nowhere near the level of the Sega All stars games.

The thing is here, Sonic Racing Transformed ( and especially on the PC at full whack )  is right up there with Mario Kart 8. The visuals are still stunning.

 

Can someone say if this new one falls short of it?

I was playing online on the Switch version earlier on there seemed to be quite a few people online. 

 

The team mechanic just isn't very enjoyable. I'd much rather they had just made a standard kart racer tbh.
