  1. It's certainly not perfect, but it is definitely playable and enjoyable. Again, my biggest complaint is the pits...pitstop that is. At any rate it's a far site better than the recently released Shadow the Hedgehog game.

    Sonic Riders doesn't boast too many tracks, nor does it have an online mode, which is a shame, but a bit of unique futuristic racing with familiar faces is what I'm after these days, and Sonic Riders delivers on that front hands down.
  3. I swung back and forth so many times on Riders' gameplay that I nearly had an emotional breakdown. The game can seem impossibly difficult until you learn all the shortcuts and master every turn. If that's your cuppa tea, get all over it. If not, rent it.
  4. An engaging arcade racing game that brings along a host of unique new gameplay twists and turns that distinguish it from the score of other similar titles.

    Sonic Riders is a game that is stylish, with clean graphics, and a nice range of characters to choose from. However, it suffers from levelSonic Riders is a game that is stylish, with clean graphics, and a nice range of characters to choose from. However, it suffers from level design that is very unconventional for players, bad controls and disappointing game mechanics. Several levels are designed in a way that make them frustrating to navigate across, and the controls take time to be able to use them decently. The soundtrack is alright, nothing special. The turbulence system, as other users have said, makes you wonder if it was really necessary. Multiplayer mode can be enjoyable, though it also suffers from the aforementioned problems. Full Review »
