Our Vita videos of Sonic Racing 2

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.

    Megido But then i dont think characters has ever been the strong suite of bioware. Usually only the monsters and aliens look good, haha :P (1 Hour ago)

    Megido @digi_matrix: yeah, no amount of subsurface scattering will make that look good :P (1 Hour ago)

    Megido @Sdarts: maybe its just the aesthetics, but the characters look awful imo. Especially the hair looks like some UE3 grade garbage. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: DA:I is as great looking as BF4, if not more as it runs on, basically, a Frostbite 3.5 engine. So if you honestly believe BF4 looks mediocre, then good luck with those insane standards. (2 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker Totally not in the mood for a game like DAI then, plus i am gonna be spending some time creating my character, damn. (2 Hours ago)
