Burning Depths

Race of Ages is a racetrack in the game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. This race serves as a tribute level to Sega characters that are not represented in the game, such as Akira Yuki, Ryo Hazuki and Bonanza Bros., or consoles from Sega's past, such as the Dreamcast and Genesis. Giant hologram-esque statues of them can be seen along the track. It is also AGES' home track.

Description

The track itself is a colorful neon track with the logo of the game in plain sight. The player's on-screen map is jammed throughout the entire race but not the maps on the 3DS Touch Screen or Wii U Game Pad Screen. Along the way, the player encounters holograms of jet skis on one side and planes on the other. Only the racer in 1st place chooses whether to set the track to boat or plane mode (by driving on the right and left sides of a straight path respectively). Then the track will reset after each lap. There are two different routes the player can take depending on the hologram they would pick.

If the player chooses the jet ski from Wave Runner, they would be sent to a flooded part of the city, filled with electric gates and holographic statues of previous Sega All-Stars such as Akira Yuki, Ryo Hazuki, and the Bonanza Bros. If the player chooses the After Burner Jet, they are sent fly straight down the city dodging electroshock grids, spinning structures and holograms of Sega game consoles, all ending with a test of accuracy by flying through a tube surrounded by a giant electroshock gate.

Trivia

  • Segata Sanshiro carrying a giant Sega Saturn on his back can be seen riding the rocket from his final commercial around the boat section of the track. It can also be clearly seen above when entering the final lap in first position.
  • As well as Ryo Hazuki and the Bonanza Bros, the player can see Opa Opa, Akira, a Chu Chu, a Striker from Virtua Striker, a bike from Hang-on, Squilla (the first boss from Space Harrier), the Harrier himself, Segata Sanshiro, a SEGA Master System, a SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis and a SEGA Dreamcast.
  • This track has a resemblance to Rainbow Road from Mario Kart, as both tracks are quite difficult, both tracks are easy to fall off the track numerous times, and both tracks (depending on how the race turns out in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed) have a great deal of flying.
    • Also, this track bears some resemblance to Android Alley from the game Crash Nitro Kart, as both contain easy-to-fall-off track and a yellow track design.
