Sonic Riders: Gamecube, PS2 and Xbox Game Review

Sonic the Hedgehog is the speediest lil' blue dude in the world! He's been rippin' it up in video games for years and now he and his buddies, Knuckles and Amy Rose, are takin' it to the air with flying skateboards called airboards in the new Sonic Riders video game for Gamecube, Playstation 2, and Xbox. We review it right here!

Racing 101 in the Sonic Riders Video Game

It's racin' time with Sonic and his buddies. The different racers each have different skills, from being able to fly, to being able to grind rails for shortcuts, and even super strength for smashin' through obstacles. Once you win a few races, you can unlock more racers and boards as you challenge Sonic's enemies to win a Chaos Emerald!

Blazin' Speed and Kickin' Tricks in Sonic Riders!

Not only is it a racing game, it's packed with skateboard tricks that would wow Tony Hawk himself! Pulling tricks when you grab air charges up your Air Meter that lets you boost your speed. Plus, when opponents are ahead of you, you can hop into their slipstream for a speed boost to catch up.

Crash 'n Burn With Sonic Riders

The first problem with Sonic Riders is that the instructions suck and there's no tutorial level! Plus, once you learn the moves, you'll be struggling to keep your Air Meter full so you don't crash out and half to walk through the levels. Pullin' tricks helps, but it's still frustrating.

Crossing the Finish Line in Sonic Riders

This game would be awesome, if it wasn't so frustrating. Instead, it's an OK game that's too hard to learn to be worth renting. If you get really good, it's fun to play, but that takes a long time.

Sonic Riders Thumbs Up:

  • High-speed aerial racing mayhem!
  • Unlock racers and boards galore!
  • Sonic Riders Thumbs Down:

  • Learning the controls is tricky!
  • The different racer types aren't that different.
  • The race tracks are awkward.
