Sonic Riders on Nintendo GameCube is almost a perfect game, but it has one or two flaws.
One day Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were just riding around their Hover-boards until they ran into some jerks named: Jet the Hawk (who somehow reminds me of the bully Mike Barnes from The Karate Kid Part III), Wave the Swallow and Storm the Albatross. Sonic tries to catch up to Jet the Hawk and grab him but fails and gets away. Later, it is revealed that Dr. Robot-nick hired these jerks only for them to compete in a championship race and Sonic decides to join the race along with his friends.
Great opening cartoon intro and 3-D cut-scenes. Fast-paced game play so fast, it pushes the Game-Cube to it's limits. There's some hover-machines to recharge your gas meter. One flaw in this game is the turning, my gosh, it's horrendous. Especially when your trying to make a sharp turn. Second and last flaw is the gas limit on your Hover-board. When you want to boost up, use it wisely, because you'll run out of Fuel quickly. Even when, yes again, making a sharp turn. You also unlock characters as you beat Heroes story like: Rouge the Bat (one of the prettiest video game characters ever), Shadow the Hedgehog and so on.
Smooth and nice Game-Cube visuals with smooth and perfect character models. Level layout and design is a little too short for the fast-paced game play.
Music and Sound:
Music score is great and sound effects are great except for the annoying Voice announcer (which possibly is cute Tails).
Joystick for moving. B for boost (use it wisely). R button plus left or right for sharp turns (once again, use it carefully).
This game is almost perfect, it just needs those 2 flaws fixed. 9.5 out of 10.
