The maps are visually interesting and range from moderately challenging to very difficult. Besides straight racing maps, the career mode also throws in a variety of challenges to mix things up. Some of these challenges are actually more fun than the actual races (in my opinion of course). The transitions between cars, boats, and planes keep the game fresh, interesting, and challenging.
As for multiplayer abilities, the game lets you play up to 4 players through the entire career mode. Players can join in and drop out at will, and a level is passed as long as one player meets the race/challenge requirements. Also, you can do up to 4 players in circuit race, which pits the players against computers just like in career mode, except that this time each player (human and computer) is given points based on how they place in each of 4 or 5 races. The player with the most points at the end wins.
Now for the reason I only gave it 4 stars. As far as I can tell, the game doesn't have a "Team Circuit Race" option where 4 players could join up with a couple computers and share points while racing a circuit against another team of computers. This means that my multiplayer options are limited to career mode and circuit race. Circuit race isn't cooperative, and makes it feel like each player is doing their own thing. Career mode is cooperative, but since only the best racer matters, only one person is really benefiting the team, and a bad player might not feel like they're contributing.
Still, it's a fun little racer that my group of twenty-somethings enjoys wasting the occasional evening on.
There is a ton of racing to do here, with numerous tracks and characters to unlock. Easy difficulties are suitable for players of any age and experience, while the highest degree of difficulty will challenge even veteran racers. For edge-of-the-seat excitement and bloodshot-eye intensity, I have never played a game that gave me a more rewarding experience. Forza-like simulations, arcade racers, and other cart racers all WISH they could be this exciting.
The only downside to Sonic Racing Transformed is the presence of some nasty sticking points in the levels. There is nothing worse than being inexplicably caught on a wall or obstacle and unable to free yourself while the competition roars past. This can often be avoided once you've gained familiarity with the tracks, though it can still be very frustrating. However, the superb quality of the rest of the game makes it pretty easy for me to overlook this problem and keep racing.
Sonic Racing Transformed is one of the best games I have ever owned, and it really deserves a look from diehard racing fans and casual gamers alike.
For the money there is a lot of play in this game. We all thought the graphics for this game was outstanding. There is the "Career", "Match Making" & "Custom Game". "World Tour", "Grand Prix", "Time Attack", & "Single Race". Lots of playing time.
