    Simply put, it's a great, fast-paced platformer with excellent balance in terms of level design, controls, and replayability.

    It's a fresh mix and will keep you going at it for a while, because I certainly did try to beat my own scores several times.

    Skyriders is a polished arcade racer in Super Monkey Ball esque levels. If you are looking for a game to mesmerize you while you are chasing stars it is definitely worth grabbing.

    With the number of tracks and the challenge of getting a gold mark on each one, it's going to take players a while to get through this game. Skyriders is definitely a fun diversion with plenty of action!

    Skyriders strips back the gameplay of a racer like F-Zero and manages to create an addictive time-trial title out of it.

    It's lack of style is certainly balanced with a fun and fast paced arcade space racer. Well... You are not in a race but no one can deny the influence of F Zero or Wipeout in this title. All in all it's a good solid game that performs flawlessly. Expand
