You simply must tell us what it's called! (And whether it's playable in English!)

Is it Majokko Daisakusen, by any chance? That's the only SRW-like game with magical girls that I know of, and it's not even all that much like SRW.

Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest

It's a fantasy version of Into the Breach by the Legend of Grimrock people, but with expansive hand-crafted levels instead of tight randomly-generated ones.

I'm really liking it so far!

Okay, last mention of All-Star Racing Transformed, then I’ll be quiet. After getting in quite a few hours, I have to say this is now on a par with the absolute best MK games (MK, Super Circuit, DS, MK8) for me. It’s a combination of the sublime handling and the boost-granting tricks on the second stick – it feels immensely satisfying to learn a track to the point where it can be boosted round in its entirety. The ‘Traffic’ events are absolutely fantastic, particularly on hard, occasionally frustrating, but in that ‘I KNOW I can do this’ kind of way.

Flaws are few and far between, but I’d point to the Pursuit and Battle events. Pursuit is just beyond tedious, in particular the third phase where the tank is dropping walls behind it which your missiles sometime flat-out refuse to break. The battle events are just beyond random – I’ve lost all three lives on the first lap without a clue what I could have done differently, and won them by doing absolutely nothing differently from the previous attempt.

Also, Curien Mansion is the greatest bit piece of fan service in any video game, ever. Probably the standout track of the game so far, with Shinobi and Afterburner not far behind.

In short, if you have even a passing interest in the type of racer and have somehow managed to avoid playing this, please do so.
One of those games where I'd be quite happy to shell out again for a 60/1080 remaster.

Totally supporting the S&ASR Transformed love here. Better time than never to play it now waiting for its sequel this tuesday.

I did not play the first game Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (jeez, are those names confusing ?!), would you rate it above or beyond the second marc ?

For what it's worth, Jak X: Combat Racing got a re-release on PS4 A.D. 2017, so I'd recommend that to PS4-owners as well, although I haven't played the PS2 original in about a decade, hence I've no idea how I would like it these days. It has to be said, Burnout 3: Takedown (originally purchased soon after Jak X, as I wanted a second fill of such antics from that PS2 of mine), re-visited last year or so, annoyed me with stuff I wouldn't mind back in the day (still not a bad game by any means, just... underdeveloped).

Doesn't the PC original sport both features straight out of the box? No baiting here, serious question, for I read Split/Second: Velocity is locked at 30 fps on PC as it is on consoles, whereas Blur can do 60 fps on a PC, so it could not be taken for granted in their time and age still.

Last but not least, if you keep playing vehicular combat games on PS3, but have yet to encounter Full Auto 2: Battlelines, I couldn't recommend it enough... played in no more than 720p. Possibly a placebo effect this, but I find its framerates more palatable in 720p than they seem to me in 1080p. I'd also happily disable the anti-aliasing, if doing so could improve its performance in any a way.
Oh yes, as for the part of it I've played through, it's perfectly serviceable without resorting to "Unwreck" command. I read one review of 1st where someone'd found it too easy because of the "Unwreck" feature, than another one, of 2nd, mentioning that the latter's "Unwreck" was not helpful enough this time around. A word to the wise - simply don't use "Unwreck" whatsoever.

Assault Suits Valken for the Super Famicom. It's pretty awesome.
