Excerpt: This was a pretty poor racing game on the PS2, the controls were so unresponsive at one point and then super sensitive at other times it just descended into a frustrating game playing experience.
Excerpt: Sonic riders is a 3rd person racing game that is quite unique. Rather than driving a car, you ride a board of some sort (a sort of hover board?), and you can play as a variety of characters from the sonic world (knuckles, sonic, tails etc). Sadly though, this is a terrible game.
Summary: If I were to award a medal to the worst game ever I would give the award to this game. It is a really bad game. All you do is fly around on a board. Really really really bad graphics as well. do not buy this game it is terrible.
Excerpt: A very disappointing racing game from a company who wants to milk their Sonic Franchise a little bit more. Compared to Nintendo's successful Mario Kart series, this racer falls short in many areas.
Pros: Has the usual characters in the game
Cons: Poor tracks, little power - ups, races are too hard at times
Excerpt: Just as Mario did in the past so this sees Sonic moving into the racing format from its traditional platform play format. Instead of racing around in funky cars you get to race in funky hovercrafts which is a nice twist but does not really change the game play in any great way.
Pros: Hovercrafty provides a twist
Cons: Very difficult with poor response to controls
