sonic riders was a real let down at first, but when you take the time to get good at it... MAN is it good! there are 2 story lines & tons of airboards (floating skateboards) sonic riders is a racing game on flying skateboards. As you play it gets more and more addicting.
the thing is though... they could've done a lot better. they didn't even get the looks, voices, or even the number of chaos emeralds right.
i would not recomend this game to experinced sonic fans or skateboarders. I would reccomend this game to people who like very hard games becase if anything else this game is extremeley HARD!
(P.S. the storyline SUCKS but the actual gameplay is awesome!)
i give this game a good "9"

It is The greatest game I've ever played. The attacks are great. I really love the boards. The
only problem is that the game is hard. But for

Sonic Lovers This is a sure get.

This game is hard. Until you get the hang of the controller. It seems quite difficult at first and there is no "Easy" mode to start off with. I personally like this game way more than Shadow the Hedgehog. There is a good sense of speed, although there's a lot of things that prevent you from staying at top speeds at all times - such as sharp turns. Whats real neat you can ride the Turbolance of the other riders as if they were waves, it's pretty much autopilot since you don't have a lot of controls.

The story is basic, the voice acting is terrible (Darn those 4Kids voice actors) and the music is alright, I guess. Don't expect an incredible racing game, and it's hard at first, but keep trying - it' s quite rewarding.
