The video above shows a member of GamesRadar playing the entirety of the WiiU version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed’s first Seaside Hill / Ocean Palace track. The video shows a non-final build of the game being played on the new WiiU controller, the display of which is shown in the video. The commentary describes frame rate and control scheme issues, along with a distracting WiiU touch pad display as negatives.
In my opinion, the only real cause for concern is a potentially awkward control scheme as the WiiU touch screen can be ignored, and frame rate issues would hopefully be dealt with before release. I was a little disappointed to see that the majority of the gameplay footage could have been taken straight from the original All-Stars Racing game i.e. the same kind of track design and style, the exact same handling on-road and the same boosting system. It is only one the final lap that we see an on-water section, where I am glad to see a difference in handling for Sonic’s boat. But no air section. Perhaps not the best track to showcase?
