Sadly, yes I bought this game...

User Rating: 6 | Sonic Riders PS2
To start off, Sonic Riders seemed like a good idea, but, after about a few hours of play it just did'nt give that much anymore. The bit at the start of the races just seemed a bit unfair as it punished you for trying to start the race ahead of time but stalling you for 5 or so seconds and making you fall back into last place. It also has a shop to buy upgraded boards etc. but it took far too long to save up rings to spend there. There is also a challenge mode of some sort where you do objectives such as ' finish the race in 2 mins. ' or ' Score 100 points ' and such. Too bad I bought it at Argos where their policy is that if you don't like it you can't return it. This game very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very boring after about 5 hours of play. Some secret characters could only be unlocked after playing for 24 hours. 6/10
