Our Vita videos of Sonic Racing 2

Last Vita title in the series of games we failed to show you last month, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a very good surprise, on 360/PS3 obviously, but also on Sony's latest handheld. Graphics may be a bit downgraded compared to the HD versions, but the game looks great anyhow, with colorful environments and a smooth framerate. On top of that, this sequel is very fun to play, which makes it the best game in the genre on Playstation Vita, far ahead of LittleBigPlanet Karting or ModNation Racers.

Looks more like a PS2 game now. It's been massively downgraded from the regular console versions. It will be interesting to see the 3DS version, - I suspect it will look identical to this, and the Vita is running lower end assets than it needs to.

The 3ds version will look worse, vita has alot more power.

I've played this version, it's smooth and looks fantastic.

    GriftGFX DOTA2 having 800k players right now isn't exactly normal levels of success. (11 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Nah they just play 3-4 games A LOT. (12 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX If there were some hacking epidemic on PC I could see that being more compelling but I don't think the benefits outweigh any real harm. (13 minutes ago)

    Melmoth not that it matters, as people only play 3-4 games on pc according to numbers :P (14 minutes ago)

    Melmoth my point was that not all devs have the know-how or budget to have that level of security. (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They actively look out for that stuff because of cheating. Which they have a pretty good handle on. All without UWP! (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No you can't mess with the executable in an online game. Which doesn't require UWP to achieve. I think that sorta works against your security point. (16 minutes ago)
