Classic Sonic Racing Vs Modern Sonic Racing by ClassicSonicSatAm Classic Sonic Racing Vs Modern Sonic Racing by ClassicSonicSatAm
Which is better? Classic or Modern? :?

Classic Sonic: Why am I'm in a Boat, plane and a Car?
Modern Sonic:...It's the new rules at SEGA! ^^:
Classic Sonic: Oh...:(....though I like the Plane and Boat modes. :)

Both versions versions suck, but I'll say classic one better, then all star racing transformed, even if its half-baked horse vomit.

Sonic R vs Transformed.
On one side, a game for a failing console that never really took off that, which was ugly and stiff, yet still fun to play.

On the other, a Mario Kart equivalent with an annoying announcer and complete mangling of the voice acting (like the Team Fortress 2 ones, my GOD).

So...call it even?

Not really, I mean Sonic Adventure 2 had sinign in it's Levels and some of them were pretty damn awesome!! :D like City Escape for one!! ^^

as for Sonic R some of them are pretty good, the main theme speically SUPER SONIC RACING!! :D, but I do like to play the game without the voices. ^^ *you know there's a option in the menu for that*

I KNOW YOU WERE ONLY REFERING TO SONIC R.
but. ^^ I just mention the other Sonic games that did it with songs in levels it worked really well and some were even pretty memorable.
As for Sonic R most of it's music was pretty damn good some of them with voices didn't sound that good while others did get you in that Super Sonic Racing mood!! :D but if you didn't like the singing at all then just turn it off in the menu and just listen to great background music insterd. :)

Simple. ^^

I'm gonna go with Modern Sonic Racing. Sonic R implies Sonic ain't the Fastest Thing Alive and that his friends can catch up to him and possibly beat him, while Sonic and All Stars Racing implies Sonic must be restricted because he IS The Fastest Thing Alive. Plus from my experience, SaSASRT is a hell of a lot more fun than Sonic R.

SaSASRT has to be one of the worst Sega racing games they ever done... Just saying from playing all their others from the past.

How exactly was it the worst, just asking. To me, Sonic R or Sonic Drift have to be the worst racing games by SEGA.

It's control/handing, it doesn't feel right.
I played alot of the Sega racing games many in the arcade and on the Saturn and dreamcast.
But that game is just awful.
it lacks anything to make it good other then the characters in it.
I played a few versions of it, PS vita, Xbox 360 and the wii u version all shit. *sorry but from a long time sega racing fan it is*

Sonic Drift was trying to rip off a game that was double it's bits/graphices and using mode-7 *Game gear with mode 7? I think not* plus it had the thing that ruin all GG Sonic games *other then the 1st one, where they made Sonic smaller to see better on the screen. * the size of the screen. do you it could do any better let alone a decent copy of mario kart? it may be the same reason why Nintendo waited for a handheld that had the same level power to do a Mario kart game right.

Sonic R on the other hand was something really differet. not only was it a first better go at Sonic in a 3D world, but it also didn't relay on copying  Mario's Kart/car for his racing game. it was much like the old Sonic 2 2p race mode and Sonic 3's vs mode, a platformer racer

the only real problem with that game was the fact it was too small on levels *5 levels isn't much* and the lack of Saturn's 3D controller. *get one and it's much better*

Btw going back to what you said early why it works for him to be in a car.
well

tails can out run Sonic in alot of games, same for Knuckles, Robotnik always outruns Sonic when he wants to.
Even Amy was racing him in Sonic Adventure 2, and let's not mention the Mario and Sonic games....plus there's Blaze which is almost like his female match.

Sonic in a car is stupid, end of.

a Sonic flying racing game would make more sense (with his tornado) , or maybe a jetski one * as Sonic can't swim or fly* would be more of his own game then a Mario Kart rip-off.

but still as I said,
SaSASRT is one of the worst racing games Sega has ever done. *and that's pretty impressive since arcade style racing games are their best, I should know they are some of my most favorite games besides Sonic, like Sega Rally,Daytona USA,Super Morocco GP, OutRun, Hang-on, Turbo, Virtual racing, Scud race,F355 Challenge and many others.
I know it's a Sonic racing game but it was more of Sega arcacde racer with Sonic done badly, control is the thing that made the past racing games great....

I don't know. SaSASRT's controls work fine with me, and apparently game critics out there think so to. Sonic being in a race care is one of the most stupid criticisms I have ever heard from any Sonic fan. No offense dude, but it really is. Canonically, Sonic is supposed to be The Fastest Thing Alive, Sonic R doesn't keep that in mind. SA2's race is just a mini game of course with no story. Sonic R was just that bad, the controls are broken, the story is really dumb, the music is so unfitting(though I still like it), and of course, it's short. Putting Sonic in a car respects the fact that Sonic is fast enough to beat anyone who challenges him. It just seems better that way than making him run.

I'm not really in the mood for this shit...-_-
a bunch of Critics have said this is a poor Mario Kart.
it's not up to Sega's standards in racing games, hell even Joy ride on 360 plays a hell alot better then that rubbish.

You and Canonically. in alot of main canon sonic games, Tails and knuckles are able to keep up and even over take Sonic in match of speed. even Shadow and Blaze are as fast as he is. even Sonic Heroes shown Fang and Amy to be just as fast as Sonic.
So yeah Canon my ass. btw SA2 wasn't the only one, *Sonic 2,Sonic 3,Sonic Heroes,Sonic Generations with the rivals, Sonic Rush,Sonic Rivals 1 and 2,Sonic Pocket adventure.*

Sonic R actually didn't copy Mario kart and added it's own style of a mix of racing and platforming.
What story? it had as much story as Super Mario Kart and all it's others. -_- It's just a racing game.
The controls are playable I done it on Keyboard,Saturn pad and Ps2 controller with no problem at all.
  The Music fits fine, if you remove the vocals *which many seem have trouble doing so. even Super Sonic racing is up there with Sonic Boom and open your heart. * it's just lacking levels if it had a bunch more then this would be one my all time favorite racing games!! :D But it's still the best Sonic has to offer. *though Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 do pretty well too. *

Once more Sonic doesn't need to be in a car, it's like giving tails a mini helicopter to make him fly or Knuckles having a hang gilder. he may be fast, but speed isn't everything in racing. *not to mention alot of Robotnik's machines and such has outrun Sonic many times before, like in Sonic 3,Sonic CD with Metal Sonic and his Egg-O-Matic,  Sonic 06 in mech speed levels with his plane and train. Sonic Generations with robo chao, and once in Sonic 1 with the Roller robot*

Enough said.

That's probably only fore game mechanics, to keep the fast pace for all other characters. Also, I don't think Shadow can RUN as fast as Sonic, he uses his special shoes. Doesn't matter how you see canon, because according to SEGA, Sonic is The Fastest Thing Alive, which is a perfectly good explanation as to why put him in a car. Using the "Sonic in a car sucks" excuse is just as stupid as the "too much 2D" excuse.

Yes, Sonic R actually has a story, and it doesn't make any sense. info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_R_JP...

As far as I know, the music would be good for something else, just my opinion, it makes terrible racing music. 

Tails' flying ability is limited so he does need a car/plane to help him fly longer, Sonic is too fast, so not putting him on a car would make him OP, Knuckles' gliding won't keep him in the air forever so he also needs a car. Every other character also gets their own car, so their really is no point in making such a bad complaint about a Car Racing game.

Not really as it still happens in the modern games, but again Sonic rivals has shown twice most of his friends can beat him in a race on foot. *and Blaze too
again I'm not in the mood for this so I'm going to make it short.
The Car idea is silly, as it's just been that choice to copy Mario, when there are many other better things he could use, like planes and jetskis to make a racing game that would make more sense for Sonic.
:facepalm: again it's only a racing game, like Mario Kart the story is not important.
Super Sonic racing is a great racing theme.
Btw Knuckles could glide forever if he has the wind.
SASASRT isn't just a bad Sonic racing game it's a bad Sega racing game too.
one of the main reasons why I sold my PS Vita.

Not really. :/
As Sonic's friends have shown that they can keep up with him and even outrun him too. *not just in Sonic R but in Sonic 2,Sonic 3, Sonic Adventure 1 and 2* even Amy on foot can win a race between Sonic. *SA2* not to mention Eggman/Robotnik who can outrun him....even in Super Form...
plus there's Mario And Sonic running games you do in that....
so if Sonic wants to be fair he doesn't need a Car. *or a hover board*
putting him in a car makes as much sense as putting Ecco the Dolphin in a Submariner.

Plus....I didn't put Sonic Drift as one it was only released in Japan *not the 2nd one though* plus I was comparing the best of Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic racing games.

Sonic R is pretty much the best one for Classic Sonic *as the Sonic Drift games were pretty bad. :/ would of been better on a more powerful system to recreate the Super Mario Kart SNES Feel *
and Sonic and All-Stars Transformed is pretty much the best one for Modern Sonic.

Well to be fair true but it wouldn't be fair that sonic would be the only one without a car, and he also have to play with the rules if he wants to race. About sonic drith its to compare to worst to the best game. And sonic r I agree its the best racing game in the classic. I even wish they create Sonic r2

:iconclassicsonicsatam:
ClassicSonicSatAm Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well he's not the only one who could do with a car, I mean Metal Sonic didn't really need it *not to mention his hover and flying abibbites he would of been ok for Transformed too* Opa-Opa didn't have anything, other then his own body to race, Shadow had a Motorbike not a car...now has a tank thing....while Alex Kidd has a bike, and Nights didn't really need a car....yet now in tranformed...he is the vehicle...well so it says *as he doesn't blink or anything to show he's alive or he's not a vehicle based on him/her * so in short Sonic wouldn't need a car nor a few characters to play with the Rules.

Still with Sonic Drift I wasn't going for that, besides it's too much of a Mario Kart Clone and not many remember it other being one of the worst Sonic Game Gear Games.

I pick these two as it's their best racing games compared *not to mention their latest racing games too atm*

Sonic can easily run across the water, he could use a guider or his rocket shoes to help him fly. *see here [link] *
As for Opa Opa....he's a car you say.....did you even play his arcade game? -_- HE'S A living SHIP WITH WINGS!! Not a car....*since when did cars have feet? and wings?* in Sonic and Sega All-stars racing he just flys though the track....

Sonic Drift was a Mario Kart clone...just saddy was on a not very powerful system. :( *not to mention the smell screen*

As much as I loved (and at one time addicted) to Sonic R, I absolutely love All-Stars Racing Transformed! Besides, the only reason Sonic's in a car is to make the race fair to the other SEGA stars who aren't lightning fast like Sonic and friends, and since he's gonna need a way to traverse the water and air. I will say, someday I'd love to see a Sonic R HD sometime, based on the PC/ Gems version's environmental effects and tighter controls.

Here we go again with the modern/classic...well I love both. I enjoy any Sonic games, some fans judge a bit harsh. I haven't played Sonic chronicles and Sonic Free Riders and some other classics. I feel bad for Sonic '06, I mean SEGA wasn't completely finished so i guess that's why there's all the glitching (I'm still having trouble defeating iblis:XD:). I do enjoy Mario and Sonic at the Olympic/winter/London games. The openings were beautiful:D

Oh and for people who are wondering why Sonic is driving a car...well come on its for fun plus it's being fair since he IS the fastest. And for the Olympic games...like I said its to play fair.

Wow. You have a Sega Saturn copy of Sonic R. That's amazing.
Do you actually have a Saturn or just the game? (I know that's a weird question but I happen to have Sonic 06 without owning a PS3)
I like Modern Sonic better. He's just more visually appealing to me.
