    Absolute trash. The controls are horrible and binding don't work properly sometimes. Graphics are PATHETICLY BAD. Soundtrack? I'd rather kill myself than listen to that drivel. Then there's the actual driving: I like all types of racing games from Blur, Gran Turismo and everything in between. But this is just not acceptable. There is literally NO DEPTH to it AT ALL!

Then there's the actual driving: I like all types of racing games from Blur, Gran Turismo and everything in between. But this is just not acceptable. There is literally NO DEPTH to it AT ALL! The drift mechanic is completely broken, since you accelerate AND brake at the same time and it will automatically drive for you! The only credit I can give this game is for the number of modes there are and custom games. Everything else about this game is totally terrible. If you have never played a racing game, have an IQ of 55 and are below the age of 6, you might enjoy this. Otherwise, avoid at all costs. Expand

    The game is decently designed. The graphics are overall good and the physics are as realistic as a sega racing game should be. However, this and the diverse character roster seem to be the only features this game has the right to boast about. Aside from all the fancy shading and popular game character gimmicks, the main theme of this game: "Transforming", seems to be a bit of a joke. TheThe game is decently designed. The graphics are overall good and the physics are as realistic as a sega racing game should be. However, this and the diverse character roster seem to be the only features this game has the right to boast about. Aside from all the fancy shading and popular game character gimmicks, the main theme of this game: "Transforming", seems to be a bit of a joke. The control is extremely loose when in anything other than a land vehicle, and other than that the main gimmick has absolutely no impact on gameplay. The way the difficulty was designed was nothing to brag about, as I found myself replaying the same level far more than I should due to the fact that in order to unlock most of the characters (which are mainly re-skins of other characters I might add), because on harder difficulties the game boils down to playing the game in a way that barely differs from grinding and you end up having to wait until the AI slips up and you get to make your lucky dash to the finish line until five seconds later when the cpu is already far ahead. My main complaint about this game is that when developing their game, Sega forgot the crucial fact that there is absolutely no reason to add specific features to a game if it makes no one want to purchase or recommend their game.

    Truth be told, this was a game made for little people and nephews, not for Sega fans. [May 2013]

    Amazingly beautiful tracks where you race, swim and fly, sometimes changing the level as you progress through it, are what makes this game great.

    This imaginative, thrillingly fast racer is better than it has any right to be. [Apr 2013, p.107]
