Product information Platform:Nintendo 3DS ASIN B008OQTRZ6 Release date February 12, 2013

I own the PS3 version as well & obviously loved it if I bought the 3DS version so I could play it on the go. It's 90% exactly the same! The 3DS specs make it so they don't have to skimp much on these games. Some of the sound & voices in the gameplay have been sacrificed for the portable version. Loading seems to take a bit longer because there is so much information in the levels. When switching from land to flight for example, only on certain levels, there is a glitch that causes you to crash or lose control for a second. It seems to be a loading issue. It doesn't cause a gameplay issue once you can anticipate it. Just take your finger off the direction control for a split second & it's fine. I'm super happy I got this 3DS version.

Christmas present

I bought this for my 8 year old daughter. She loves it and it holds her attention. The graphics are very nice and the game was simple enough for her to pick up and play without needing a tutorial. There are over 20 racers to chose from, the vehicles can transform from a car, to a boat or plane depending on the racing terrain. There are 16 dynamic tracks to choose from and you can develop your racing skills and use weapons to out-wit and out-race your opponents!

Just as promised

When it has came down to Sonic The Hedgehog, there actually hasn't been many driven games made for the speed pf the blurred and blue hedgehog that Sega has came out with. While many gamers have been thrilled with Sonic Generations, there still are those who are awaiting to play more with the speed of Sonic. That had been tried before with the speed of Sonic with Sonic racing games, like Sonic Riders and Sonic Racers. While they have worked mostly well for die hard racers, there are those that have wanted more. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing was made before as a game for the Nintendo DS, and it really could've been something worked up upon, that needed the kinks worked out of. Well, a new version has finally came for the Nintendo 3DS. But the question is that does it really fly?

Sonic & Sega All-Stars: Transformed racing picks up a bit better than what had came out for the Nintendo DS before. This time though you have 20 different races to match your way to the top of the leader board. You can play against others online, and through the streetpass as well. You can choose from a bit better of a lineup pf racers from Sonic, to Dr. Robotnik and Metal Sonic among others that were overlooked from the earlier Nintendo DS title. Graphically, the game fairs a bit of improvement from the Nintendo DS title, and it is a bit easier to play, as you compete against others in races around the Sonic and Sega universe from levels like Dragon Bay and Outrun Bay. But the game improves nobly by allowing you to download and purchase extra tracks and other racers through the online eShop, like some of the other Nintendo 3DS titles like New Super Mario Brothers 2. So you can play against others as Wreck-It Ralph and others in the game with the excitement of the game. The control is a bit better than the past DS game, by streamlining itself with the gameplay as you can race by either land, sea and air on the same race course. It makes the game a bit more extreme than was the case with Mario Kart 7, which worked with the game better. But nevertheless, it is a improvement on the game that faltered before, by adding too much challenge, but not as much fun.

Overall, despite a few missing works, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing: Transformed is still a much needed improvement on a game franchise that didn't work as well with gaming on the go for the Nintendo DS. What I do like is the extreme new tracks, but there still needed to be more. But overall, there have been many poor racing games for the Nintendo 3DS. But this one sustains a bit more to the punch. It isn't as good as Mario Kart 7 showed, but this follows in suite well. If you have played Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing before for the DS, give this a second look and try it for the Nintendo 3DS.

Overall: B

Since the franchise come out with Sonic and Sega All star racing for the Nintendo DS I always evaluate both Mario Kart and Sonic All Star Racing and for me, the best (but for a short score form Mk) are Sonic All Star Racing, for the NDS Sonic and Sega All star Racing DS is Better that Mario Kart DS, is more difficult , had better graphics and sound, in The Wii Mario Kart Wii is better, had more character and the graphics sound and gameplay is better, since we don't had MArio Kart for The WiiU i can't compare Sonic and All Star Racing Transformed but in the 3DS both games had plus over the other, in Mk7 the best thing in the cart customization and the online play (free and community) and the best in Sonic and All star Racing transformed is the character variety track's animations, the race itself and the grand tour mode, over some graphics glitches, regular graphics and bad online mode (if U played the online mode for Sonic and Sega all star Racing you know what expect).
Actually U can't be wrong to choose between Sonic and All star Racing Transformed and Mario Kart 7 both are excellent games for the 3DS, well and about the console, this game is not exclusive for Nintendo's console like Mario Kart franchise is so if you what tha same fun for ma mario Kart game in the PS3 or Xbox 360, Sonic and All Star Racing can do the job. I actually had the Wii U and 3DS version
Well about Sonic and All Star Racing for the 3DS

Graphics: The character and cards graphics are medium level, may be B+ graphics, but the scenarios graphics are just fine
Characters: it had a variety of characters to unlock including joe Musagi from Shinobi, each racer with unique abilities to boost, speed, handling, etc
Load time: The loading time in the game may be slow sometimes but is is because the tracks are animated, dynamics and very big
Sound: the game had a good sound
Online: it is not the best but is works, sometimes can be very difficult find a rival to race and may be slow, this game had a online store when you can purchase new characters and circuits when Sega release them, if you had the bonus edition of the game you can download Metal Sonic and a new circuit for free.
Gameplay: had less cup that Mario Kart but each road is a long one, you can take 3 up to 6 minutes in single circuit, each circuit are dynamic and had various paths (not short ones), the race when are in plane mode can be slow and some difficult/frustrating some times

After all, I'll give this game A-, it has weak point and strong ones but it is really fun.

Purchased for my grandson and he loves it!
