    This game is very tough to play, the mechanics are BROKEN, almost unplayable.

    Every time I put this game into my xbox, it is awful. I try to play, but the speed mechanics are so poor. It's another game that Sonic Team tried to manage, but then managed to f*** it up. The worst t...

    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...

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

    Rated on September 10, 2008 by fandom888

    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 ...

    Ironically, a spinoff kicks ass.

    Rated on January 27, 2007 by NeoFalconHavok

    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 S...
