I still don't see why Sonic needs a car.
Sonic is back in a whole new automotive incarnation. This time, Sonic and friends of the Sega-verse drive, fly and float along raceways all for the glory of first place. Between the wacky power-ups and car transformations I was a bit thrown off. The frame rate was a little slow, which is frankly quite odd for a racing game.
The game looks nice enough and handles fairly well. There's not much to really say on the Blue Blur's racing game. It's better than Sonic R, although no soundtrack will ever beat that game's music. There's a good amount of creativity and thought put into it with all types of cars and racers making appearances in the game. The stages are fun, but a bit bland.
One of the best parts of the game visually and gameplay-wise is when the vehicles transform from one mode to another. The change is seamless and looks pretty great. And who doesn't love watching a car turn into a boat?! The races are enjoyable and the perfect length. I just would like to see the game play a bit smoother.
The game has some kinks in it, but it's far from terrible. I'm confident that after the game has been looked over one more time, any problems I could think of will be addressed and promptly fixed. The game has the potential to be great and I'm hoping it will be.
