Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a Frankenstein's monster of a port. It's seemingly held together in places by little more than spit and string, resembling the original on which it's based but clearly not capable of independent life on 3DS.

And yet - and yet - it somehow manages to hang in there. This is a kart racers whose technical flaws are occasionally laughable, but it's still full of excitement and brimming with nostalgic thrills.

It's an odd creation, but if you can look past its obvious material deficiencies you'll find there's plenty to enjoy within.
