    Fast paced, but VERY frustrating.

    Sonic Riders is SUPPOSEDLY a fun game in which you control Sonic and friends in races on extreme gear not-so-colorfully called...Extreme Gear. It is, but the game is so frustrating in many levels. Each character is based... Read Full Review

    Another Sonic game that Sega has made, except instead of running, it's air boarding!

    Gameplay: This game kind of gets hard when you play it at first, but with practice, it's just like riding a bike. It took me a lot of practice to get through the stages and the controls. Take for example, let's go to Bab... Read Full Review

    Don't Stop Me Now!

    I bought Sonic Riders for the PC, because I thought it'd be a great game. The screenshots looked pretty cool so I gave it a short. After all, as a Sonic fan, I give most games from the series a try. I played it for an ho... Read Full Review

    Sonic Riders is a great fun at the beginning, but then it becomes a bit boring.

    Sonic Riders seems to be a great game, but in fact it is just another racing game in which you will have to speed up and beat your opponents. First of all, the graphics engine is very imressive at times, but it become... Read Full Review

    A Fun Game!

    Well, I've been playing the demo for about a week now and really like this game! I'm not sure exactly why it's getting such low scores from the different sources, but I think it certainly deserves better (or maybe at le... Read Full Review

    Ironically, a spinoff kicks ass.

    Sonic Riders is a racing game. Yeah, the racing genre is the most underrated (yet still sucky) genre of all time. And wouldn't you know it, a sonic racer actually outdoes them all. Story: 6/10 Sonic stories. The gr... Read Full Review
