Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed...!

Recommended Posts

I had no idea about the boat in Race of AGES.

And god damn it. Can anyone do that drift shortcut in Carrier Zone right before the finish line? I can't do it for the love of god so I can't do the Hard or Expert races.

My mind is blown with that Race of Ages thing.

Can anyone do that drift shortcut in Carrier Zone right before the finish line?

I'll try more then, I guess.

Also I've done everything possible and if I'm not wrong, the pre-order DLC is not available in Singapore or Asia for that matter since it's the same anyway.

I seriously hope Sumo Digital make it available here too. I'd be a real sad panda :(

Oh, I just hope Alex Kidd is available forever after Christmas? Maybe some super secret guy is added in for new year?

You might want to spoiler tag that. Just loaded the game with January 1st 2013 and the unlockable in question was still unlocked. Nothing else unlocked for New Year's Day, though.

well i finally got 232 stars, and now on to unlocking stickers!

also having abit of an issue on Grand prix, i need one more grand prix cup but i can't tell which one i need to redo on

I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but on "Race of Ages" you can choose if you want to go to the plane or boat section of the track. If you're in first place you will notice two holograms of a jet and a ski flying above you as well a split in the road just ahead. If you take the path to the left you will go to the plane route, and the path on the right will take you to the boat route. I always thought the path it choose was random, my mind was blown when I found this out. Do remember though that the person in first gets to decide which route every racer takes.

that's why S0L said make sure your in first on the last lap so you choose which route is better for you. i knew those holograms mean something.

For people who are having trouble with the Ai or stuck on courses, do some of the time trials, because the Sumo ghosts take some pretty good racing lines which are not too hard to emulate. I've already improved my times just by looking at what the 'ghosts' do.

I hate the AI in this game...but I agree. The Shinobi time trial in World Tour showed me a shortcut I never even imagined. It's like watching a youtube speedrun. Even if you can't do everything, it can help you shave off seconds. Y'know, until you get hit by four drones, two ice weapons and an all-star and get knocked to 6th. Time trial is MUCH easier than the normal race.

BTW, the tank missions are ridiculously easy...even on hard and expert. Same with Battle races and Boost challenges. I find those to be good missions to rack up the stars early on...even if you suck at the normal races.

Maybe Football Manager/Shogun will be made available at a later date much like Alex Kidd, they could keep it a secret until closer to the time by releasing a patch just before.

So many people saying MK7 already did the transforming kart feature and did it better.

Clearly they haven't payed any attention to this game whatsoever...

I was going to comment towards a few of them on the article myself before realizing it was a waste of time.

I have to say, as much as I like this game, it falls short of Mario Kart in a lot of things, mostly the little details. And you know what they say, the more the merrier it's the small stuff that counts.

For example, in Mario Kart Wii, every character has vocalizations for nearly EVERY situation. Getting set on fire, falling off the track, winning a race, getting second, getting third, so on, so forth. It's cool to hear how each character reacts to each situation. Unfortunately, the characters in Transformed simply spout one of three or so lines for each situation (the situations being "positive", "negative", "win", "lose").

NiGHTS gets hurt? "NO!"

NiGHTS gets passed? Same "NO!"

NiGHTS taps a wall slightly too hard? "NO!"

It's lazy (or whatever), but it works...most of the time. Hearing Reala say "GIVE UP, YOU CAN'T WIN" 400 times in the same race is ANNOYING as all hell. Not only does it lead to annoying repetition, reusing lines also leads to shit that makes no sense at all.

Sonic wins a race? "Dude, sweet! And you're only going to get better!" What the fuck does that even mean? Who are you talking to?

Knuckles wins a race? "First one to the finish, wins!" ...okay, yes, that is the basic concept of racing. Good job.

Shinobi Joe wins a race? "My ancestor, Japanese McNamington." Alright, you're not even trying. Hell, this guy's voice was even recorded specifically for this game.

Another thing are the All-Stars. I understand that this game has significantly more characters than Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, but in that game, every pair had an extremely unique special that changed the way you selected characters and raced. In Transformed, everyone has the same All-Star with a different attack (generally just a blast wave of some sort), which, if I'm not mistaken, is actually a step DOWN from the first one.

There's also a lot of trouble with registering boosts, tricks, etc. The game needs a LOT of polish. Flying is also very hectic and nearly impossible to keep ahead during Expert races for someone who isn't insanely good at the game. The Expert AI also cheats far too often (how does Amigo, the character with a speed stat of ONE, gain on and overtake NiGHTS with a Speed mod at top speed?) and the Expert level altogether is frustrating and not fun, to say the least.

I don't know. This game is fun, to be sure, but I can't say it's better than Mario Kart. Honestly, though? It doesn't have to be. It's a different game entirely. Do I have more fun with Mario Kart? Yes. Does it have things Transformed doesn't have? Yes. But Transformed has things Mario Kart doesn't have. So there.
