In Sonic Riders, Dr. Eggman challenges Sonic and his friends to a Worldwide Grand Prix, and the prize for coming out on top is an ultra-rare Chaos Emerald! Gliding on air boards - which are performance-oriented for each playable character - gamers will experience a heightened sense of sports-style racing tension as Sonic and his pals perform tricks and stunts over treacherous wide-open terrain. Sonic and friends speed through tracks on air boards, using individual special moves to strike down opponents. Air is a big element of Sonic Riders. Your board's "fuel" source is air. You can fill up your air at various points on the course, but to race well you'll have to use another means of replenishment: performing tricks with your board. You'll also want to make use of turbulence from racers who are in front of you. Written by Sega

Great game!
11 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When you get used to the controls and game play style, this game is GREAT FUN!!!!!! Sure the controls were hard to get used to for me for instance, but eventually I got the hang of it, then I began to play this game more and more. This game has great open levels with amazing 3D graphics, along with a honorable AMAZING soundtrack! I love bopping along to the funky tech-no tunes in the game while racing. Many characters can be unlocked in the game which is a good thing and also you get to play on 2 sides of the story: Hero and Babylonian. The game features new characters; Jet the Hawk, Wave the Swallow and Storm the .... something XD. But yeah, I forget what kind of animal Storm was. I enjoy a lot of the game and I can't wait to play Sonic Riders Zero Gravity. This game is also very strangely addictive and fun when you get the hang of it!
