Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a kart racing game, and a sequel to the 2010 Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. Players select characters from various SEGA titles and race their karts while using and voiding a variety of weapons that can be launched. Karts can transform during certain moments in the race, to boats and planes, which alter the vehicle's handling. The game includes a Career mode, as well as the Grand Prix, Time Attack, and Single Races, as well as local races with up to four players, and online with up to ten players.
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed received fairly positive reviews with an average score of 82%, praised for offering enough challenge to both new and experienced players, as well as its overall level of fun.
The game is far more challenging than its predecessor, demanding some serious karting skills to get that Platinum. On top of which, there are a couple online trophies which can be a little complicated if attempted legitimately. However, if you purchase and download the Metal Sonic + Outrun Bay DLC, this causes a glitch which results in the Yokozuna trophy - perhaps the hardest in the game - to become much easier to unlock. With the DLC, and having some boosting partners to help with the online, the difficulty score could be brought down to a 3-star.
Expect roughly 25-35 hours of gameplay, depending on your skills. Though far more if you are not downloading the DLC.
NOTE: You will need 4 controllers for the Platinum.
You'll first want to hop into World Tour mode and make your way through, which you can play on either Easy or Normal, depending on your confidence. You'll be earning a few trophies naturally during this step. Once you've completed all the tours, you'll not only unlock the De Rol Le Credits trophy, but also Expert mode.
From this point, you'll want to return to the first tour and restart on Expert mode. Your ultimate goal, aside from completing Expert mode, will be to collect all 232 stars in World Tour for the All Stars trophy. You should also unlock a few more trophies during your progress.
Once that's finished, it's time to head into the Grand Prix on Expert mode, and finish first in order to get the Welcome To Victory Lane trophy. Having done this, as well as previously completed the World Tour on Expert, will also unlock the SEGA Super Star trophy.
Next, there are the Time Trial related trophies. The Yokozuna trophy requires you to beat all the Staff Ghosts, to which there are 160 ghosts to beat, four on each track. However, if you purchase and download the Metal Sonic + Outrun Bay DLC, this will cause a strange glitch where you'll only need to defeat ONE Expert Ghost for the Yokozuna trophy.
Next - or at any point during this roadmap - you can head online to unlock the two online trophies: Newtron and Race Leader. Team Sonic does not have to be done online, but if you already have your boosting partners, it's much easier. If you're looking for people to play with, check out the boosting forums under our Links tab.
Lastly, with all the difficult and time consuming stuff out of the way, simply head back into offline and mop-up any trophies you still might need. Regardless if you used the Yokozuna glitch or not, this is still a Platinum to be proud of.
