SEGA and Sumo Digital’s not-so-Mario-Kart-clone has made its way to the Xbox One via Xbox 360 Backwards-Compatibility. The game joins the growing list of last-generation titles which are slowly but surely making their way to the current platform.
Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed launched back in 2012 on quite a number of platforms: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, 3DS, Vita and iOS/Android. It came exactly one year before the launches of the PS4 and Xbox One as it launched in November. It was a launch title for the Wii U (a Sonic racing game was on a Nintendo platform before Mario Kart?!), thus making it the only 8th-generation console to get the game, until now.
You can now download the hit racer on your Xbox One. The Xbox 360 version of the game got a Metascore of 82, which is pretty good. The Xbox One has a lot of racers of its own, especially the recently-released and criticially-acclaimed Forza Horizon 3, but there aren’t too many arcade racers, especially not of the karting genre. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed switched up the formula with the feature of having transforming vehicles and dynamically-changing tracks. It’s a pretty fun racer, so you should definitely try it out.
