In short, the game has a good roster of characters, plenty of vehicles and courses, and some unique gameplay features. Some people seem to have alot of difficulty with the game, but after the tutorial and with some practice, the game becomes much easier. It's atleast worth a rent for anyone looking for a good racing game.

Sonic Riders Zero Gravity is, for the most part, your usual racing game. Except for the giant talking animals riding hoverboards. There's over a dozen characters, and anyone who plays will find someone they enjoy playing as. The courses are also diverse, which is good. I never felt like I was going through the same course over and over again.

Most of your playtime will be spent in Story Mode, Free Race, Time Attack, and when you unlock it, Grand Prix Mode.

Free Race is simple. You pick a course, a character, a "gear" to ride, and you race.

In Time Attack, you race against time to get the fastest time possible, which can end up on the online leaderboards if you're good enough.

Grand Prix let's you choose from 2 sets of 6 courses, and has you race for points to get you first place.

And then there's Story Mode. You're treated to a pretty CGI cutscene at the beginning, which gives you the basis of the actual story. It isn't incredibly deep, but it doesn't really have to be. This is a racing game. Right after the cutscene, you get thrown into your first race. Each race in story mode has a goal for you to complete. Usually, the goal is finish in first place, or finish before time is up.

The story mode is rather short, lasting only 6 courses, but is made up for with a second story, containing 6 more courses. I personally find the ending confusing, so if you're getting this game for the story, you may end up dissapointed.

Besides the modes, the game features the ability to control gravity in 2 different ways. To dash forward, and to drift around tight corners. You'll be using these constantly, so it's important to master them ASAP

And that is not a good thing.

Even the icon on how to hold the controler is the same. The graphics are nice but wild and gets into the gameplay. You are always in last place. And you want to stop playing after 10 minutes like all the other Sega Wii games.

Forget this and buy F Xero or Wave Race on the VC.
