    I'm a Sonic fan and I must admit: the first Sonic Riders was a crap game. Although it had nice graphics and beautiful CGS, it had a poor gameplay. Now, with Gravity Zero, Sega repaired the gameplay and the games finally got the attention it deserved. Now is a excellent games with nice graphics, beautiful CGs, good history and awesome characters. And, of course a wonderful gameplay!!!!!!

    The controls -- namely character acceleration -- feel awkward and counterintuitive, as you're forced to hold forward on the left stick to accelerate while also trying to steer your character. The tracks are a mishmash of right angle turns and jumps that sometimes lead you down random paths, necessitating several playthroughs of each just find your way around the track.
  2. Awful controls, however, ruin the experience.
  3. It's a new and improved Sonic Riders with plenty of new tracks and characters to enjoy. It's a must-have for Sonic fans and a "might-enjoy" for aces of the racing genre, especially for those who like F-Zero and Wipeout.
