Sonic Riders

Gaming Evolution
18 July 2007
  • Conclusion: But what makes you wonder what Sonic was thinking is the fact that they put one of the fastest mainstream characters on a board, when we all know he can outrun everyone on foot. Hate them or love them, they have created an entertaining racer that will occupy your time for a few hours at least. If your not in Sonic that much, the title is still worth a play through, even if you have to rent it or play with a friend.

Sonic Riders Review

VideoGamer.com
27 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Oh dear. SEGA seems to be at it again. If Shadow the Hedgehog wasn't bad enough, we now have Sonic Riders. As the title suggests, this is a hover board racing title set in the Sonic universe that features all the main Sonic characters. Sadly, this suffers from some of the worst controls in a racing game since Sonic R on the SEGA Saturn and looks barely good enough to appear on current-gen systems.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Simply put, Sonic Riders is a game that had all the makings for a potentially great racer but failed in its execution. Better controls and track designs would have made for a much more enjoyable game, but as it is now, the game comes up way short in both departments. On top of that, you've got insane race requirements that add a great deal of challenge and frustration to the overall game.

  • Excerpt: Why have wheels, when you've got air? Sonic Riders is Sega's latest racing game using the Sonic characters, but instead of being on foot (like in Sonic R), or using cars (Sonic Drift),Hoverboards are the vehicle of choice. I've heard complaints about the graphics, however I think they're very nice. Then again, these complains could have come from the PS2 version.

Sonic Riders

Game Revolution
21 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Caught in a speed trap. Eventually, every gaming icon grows tired of saving the world/girl/humanity from harm. Over the years, Mario, Crash, Jak, and Mega Man have felt the need to develop some kind of new, interesting method to combat evil. Unfortunately, the bone they usually get tossed is shaped like a go-kart, and now one more is added to the list with Sonic Riders , where the world's fastest mammal tries to go faster, with mixed results. And a horrifying plot.
  • Pros: Really fast, Tons of modes, Interesting mechanics, That are mostly identical, That don't work well together, Can be frustrating.

Sonic Riders de Gamecube

Opinamos
3 October 2008
  • Summary: Una nueva aventura depara a la entrañable mascota de sega y su formidable equipo, solo que en esta ocasión deberá participar en un difícil torneo a bordo de veloces tablas voladoras. A sonic se le da muy bien la velocidad, así que competiciones de este tipo le caen que ni pintadas, tendremos que solfear en un torneo con más de 80 misiones (algunas tendrán que desbloquearse) y aprovechar las condiciones de 17 personajes que podremos encarnar a lo largo del juego.
