Sonic & All-Stars Racing – Return to the fun racers!
Being a massive fan of Diddy Kong Racing I wanted to play a more up-to-date version of a simplistic action racing game which didn’t mean I would have to learn all the complicated characteristics of a car like you would have to do on Gran Turismo.
I saw Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Steam which was on offer – I thought it would be worth a go at the cheap price of 3 quid. With the game loaded up I put the game on medium difficulty and I’ll be honest I got my ass handed to me on my first go.
For a game aimed at kids this game is genuinely hard! It took my about 4 attempts to realise in order to win you need to power-slide. Fortunately the developers have set the game up so that you don’t lose speed for power-sliding and that the longer you slide, the more boost you get. Armed with this new technique I was sliding myself into 1st place.
Here is the first level, Ocean Tour:
The second level, Carrier Zone:
The third level, Samba Studios:
The fourth level, Dragon Canyon:
If you want a game that’lll remind you of Diddy Kong Racing / Mario Kart on the N64 then I’d give this game a go
