We start on easy level. If the game senses that a player is struggling with certain aspect of the game, such as turning, it will suggest a guiding line for the player. There's plenty of content and play modes, lots to unlock, and it's very accessible. I wanted something akin to Mario Kart to play on My Xbox One X, so I ordered this hoping it would at least be a playable clone. Discover alternative routes and short cuts as you perfect the course in this adrenaline fuelled dash to the finish line - racing will never be the same again.
Getting multiple accounts signed in is a little bit of a hassle, as is figuring out how to change settings for that player must be in a race , but it's not too bad with a quick Google search. The characters have a progression element although it's not hard to level them up, and once you have you can prioritize speed, handling, acceleration, etc. This hame is a blast! When it's fun, it's a blast. In my opinion, it actually competes fairly well with the 'Kart franchise, and is a blast to play. Each character is equipped with their own unique vehicle that can transform into a car, boat and plane to take advantage of the changing terrains. Whoever thought traffic attack was a good idea needs to be flogged. It's not overly deep, but adds a nice element of customization if your favorite character is too slow by default.
Regardless, the game is well made enough that a casual gamer can find a good time with this. So I can play with him which he also likes! As he masters that we can go to medium then hard. All the other characters go all star left and right while you're lucky to go all star yourself even once. While you can tell it's an Xbox 360 game, the graphics hold up well and the performance and load times are fine. I had one lock up in 10 or so hours of playing, otherwise it's been rock solid. Sure, going all star while in third place won me a few races, but I still feel that characters in 6th place should be getting it instead of someone in second.
I've mostly been playing split screen, haven't tried 4 player yet, but 2 works just fine. We discovered this game in the back of a hot wheels game box. Give it a shot and see what you think. If you have a kiddo that likes racing or cars they will love this game! While I can appreciate wanting to increase replay value, certain challenges in World Tour simply do not belong. Compete across land, water and air in incredible transforming vehicles that change from cars to boats to planes mid-race. He loves that the vehicle transforms! My teens like it because of the different characters and challenges and they can play with youngest brother and he can actually keep up.
I don't normally swear more than once or twice in a sentence when agitated, but so many of these challenges had me throwing my controller over my shoulder and spouting so much profanity. You can do 4 players split screen. Graphics is okay, game control is not bad. It heavily borrows some elements, while introducing enough new concepts to almost have its own identity. The controls are easy enough for this 50 year old mom to figure out how to use! The physics in this game are better than the first, but they can still screw with your race and cost you a victory.
. Fun game for the whole family. Controlling your vehicle on water can be incredibly difficult because if you turn too sharply, you'll lose most of your momentum and ram into the wall. Master your driving skills as you drift, barrel roll and boost to overtake your rivals, or use your weapons tactically and unleash your All-Star move to gain the winning advantage. My 3 year old loves it! Tons of comparisons between this and Mario Kart 7 were flying all over the place at the time. I also experienced delayed actions countless times while playing.
Fortunately, no children were present at the time. Sumo said the game would be more balanced, but I kind of disagree there. Kids friendly, with many characters to pick from. It's not just your fellow racers you need to watch out for: as the road falls away beneath you, or the river runs dry, new routes emerge and your vehicle transforms to take advantage of the terrain. The different vehicle modes add a bit of challenge, more so to newer players, but it's not too hard to get the controls down and get caught up fairly quickly. Platform: Xbox 360 Sonic and the All-Stars cast line up on the starting grid once again to battle for supremacy in the ultimate race. At least the Sonic cast isn't plagued with 4kids anymore and their voice clips actually fit now.
I don't feel like it benefits much from the extra horsepower, but overall it's a good experience. This game is a good alternative to Mario Kart. As a whole, it's not a bad game. Savings represents a discount off the List Price. An example of this is I move the right thumbstick twice to have my character perform two tricks just after making a jump when on screen, the character doesn't respond until just before they hit the water again, and performing three flips when I had only wanted to do two.
When it's difficult, it can be infuriating. At first, I was really hesitant about this game. International Shipping This item can be shipped to select countries outside of the U. You can race alone or against each other. .
