nowhere in stock nearby for me

this was posted this morning along with pikmin 3

Online store check isn't always accurate. Better to check in store youself

Really fun game, worth the hassle trying to find it.

£10 in store at Game too if closer. Would it not be better invested in Mario Kart 8 though?

I've had this game since 2013 which back then I really enjoyed as I didn't have Mario Kart 8 but after.. no chance. Once you play MK8 this game will feel obsolete and unintuitive to play.

The colours and visuals also look very washed out.

This screenshot's via the GamePad but it doesn't look much better on the TV either.

Although, the music and speed are two things which are freakin' awesome about Sonic Racing Transformed!

I've got it on PC and it's great so I'm not too fussy about missing out. And I've gotta say the colours look terrible there! Way better on PC > http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/55499569376317911/206AEFD2160AAE31C7D773D05B4DE791BA89EED6/

HOT. Bought this game for about £30 a year or so ago and it was great fun. Bought it to tide me over until Mario Kart 8, but TBH I play this one more even now

great game. not as good as mk8, but what game is? worth £10 all day long.

A really fun game. I never noticed that the colours were washed out when I had it, although I'm not denying that you're right. I traded it before MK8 came out. Unless your a big sonic fan (like that guy that maces people in Gamestop) you really don't need both.

I've got both this and Mario Kart, I'd say save your money towards MK8

Precisely! SART runs far better on any half-decent PC than it does on any console. With the additional simple tweak of adding 16x anisotropic filtering it looks better still.

As undoubtedly wonderful as MK8 is, especially so since the first DLC pack, its single player mode isn't quite as good as SART's single player mode... and I'm far from being alone in that opinion. MK8 is the better multiplayer game though.

I have 2 versions on pc & wii u. On PC looks better, much clear & sharper, cause resolution. On wii u unfortunately is only 720p. The worse is framerate in multi 2-5 players around 15-25fps. In PC never went below 60fps. Wish to get wii u version with option 5 players in multi + incl. gamepad on pc...

Absolutely agree with this, I actually prefer the variety of tracks and the structure/unlock system of the single player campaign in SART, but for online play I prefer MK8 every time.

I also saw about 5x copies along a shelf at Game today. All were reduced to £10 so there seems plenty of places to get this atm if you want it.

Not sure what's the story with your TV but got this game today and after playing it for the 1st time i have to say it plays and looks absolutely fantastic. £10 well spent.

After playing Mario Kart 8 and then going back to Sonic Racing Transformed it just didn't look very good which is what made the game now somewhat less playable. I guess Nintendo showed how graphics matter. lol

I actually prefer this to Mario Kart 8. Nothing compares to Diddy Kong Racing though

Yeah, good old Rare! I thought they also did a good job with Micky's Speedway USA. The N64 had so many good games.
