    I have heard positive feedback on the console versions and expected the 3DS version to be a trimmed down but still functional racer. I was immediately engaged in the game due to the fan service and celebration of past Sega franchises. Once the racing begins everything goes down hill, do not expect Mario Kart 7 quality or performance. Horrid graphics that are on par with early generation N64 games, and a poor frame rate make this unplayable. Might be best to stick to the consoles. Expand

    I've only played the demo, and y didn't like what I saw. It appears that the game is running in a windows 98 with k62500 processor. The game lags so much and the graphics are acceptable. I'm wondering how a handheld that ports games like mario kart 7 can sell other similar game with so many bugs. In a word Frustrating.

    Sadly this title, which could have been great, is ripe with severe technical issues ranging from frame stutter, to stereoscopic ripping and even to outright system halts (as in, total crash requiring a system reset). It's really a bummer because what the game is trying to be is actually quite a lot of fun... when it works well and holds together for more than 15 minutes. Normally you'll find yourself after a few tries finally having a good run and about to advance to the next goal... only to have your 3DS crash during the last lap. Multiplayer, solo player... doesn't matter. The thing is eventually going to crash. You can actually tell when it's about to happen it appears this game leaks memory to the point where it slows down and when these slow downs become frequent you know it's about to blow up on you.

    A workable frame rate might have salvaged this uninteresting, watered-down 3DS version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Instead, the game's single redeeming quality is marred by technical and gameplay problems, leaving it a shallow, unworkable execution of a good idea.

    The roster of Sega stars and tracks is commendable. When the game hits its strides it can even be as entertaining as genre king Mario. But more often than not the game’s suite of issues holds it back from greatness.

    A bit of a mess from a tech viewpoint, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed's highly evolved racing action pushes through sheer force of fun.
