There is a lot of action, hand and eye coordination and over all fun with this game.
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.
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.
Fun & Enjoyment: B- for solo play; B 1/2+ for multiplayer
