Team Sonic Racing updates the tried and true kart-racing formula with mechanics encouraging team-play.
Sonic leaves behind a trail for his team-mates to take advantage of.
The Sonic franchise’s history is riddled with games that were poorly received to ones that give modern blockbusters a run for their money. Fortunately, the Sonic racing offshoot is of the later category, and rivals that of recent Mario Kart games. The last Sonic racing game, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, currently enjoys an Overwhelmingly Positive review on Steam, and an 82% for the Xbox 360 version on Metacritic.
Team Sonic Racing is looking to distinguish itself from the ordinary kart-racer by incorporating engaging team mechanics.
Therefore, some of the team-play features include:
Skimboost: Boost struggling teammates back into action as you drive by!
Slingshot: Slipstream a teammate for a slingshot boost!
Rival Takedown:Knock out highlighted opponents ahead and speed past them!
Item Box Transfer: Send and receive Wisps with teammates anywhere on the track!
Team Ultimate:Use Team Mechanics to fill your Team Ultimate meter and unleash a massive team boost!
