    You shouldn't rate a game because somebody else said so or because you just flat out hate Sonic, you should rate a game based on if you played it or not unlike Flesh and Thumper17 who are idiots who never played the game. I played the game and it works fairly well, but for different people some might like it some may not but try it out first before you bash it.

    This game is awesome! Shows off alot of cool things cool things that Kinect is capable of doing. If your a fan of Sonic you'll love this game (P.S. Sonic haters, piss off, give real reviews or don't review at all, giving a link to some other persons review makes u a idiot...play the games and make ur own decision)

    Sonic Free Riders is not a bad game at all. In fact it is one of the best games on the Kinect right now. The controls are tight and recognize the slightest movement I make. The tracks are fun and definitely give you a work out. People who say that the controls don't work either haven't calibrated their Kinect or stand to close to the Kinect (AngryJoe's god awful review of the game).

    Good Game . Good Exclusive for Xbox 360 . This game for Kinect . In this game very good graphics and good storyline about tournament by airboarding . This is not one of the worst game in Sonic Series . This game even better than Sonic Heroes and Sonic Riders . 8/10

    Sonic Free Riders is good, but not awesome. Is one of the greatest games on the Kinect because it's a LIVE game with Sonic characters. We can even grab the rings using our hands! Only one disadvantage of this game is turnings right or left the board to complete corners. It was a risky step to create this game. If Sonic Team fixed turns in games, it could have been the greatest game of allSonic Free Riders is good, but not awesome.

    SFR(Sonic free riders) Is a good game in my opinion. The damn song is catchy. Yeah sure the menu is a piece of **** but still. It wont work if your kinect is old or a piece of garbage.

    Sonic Free Riders could have been a great game if the controls worked.

    With ring collecting and extreme gear upgrades, this should have been a fun racing game for Kinect; instead, it's an unresponsive mess that flat out doesn't work. Did no one test this game and see that it's broken?

    Sonic Free Riders might look like just another board racing Kinect game, but it's a league above others like CrossBoard 7 in terms of depth and replayability.
