I've loved sonic since sega genisis came out and he's my favorite game character. I love this game cause I can play it on my psp and I love racing games this brings back memories of me playing sonic 2. So I really enjoyed this game and I also beat the game twice already. I can't wait to get my hands on sonic rivals 2 when it comes out. I hope more sonic titles for the psp will be released soon. I would highly recommended this game to any sonic fans out there or just anyone in general. Sonic Rules!

Good

A fairly uncommon concept with potential.

Sonic Rivals is essentially a side scrolling racing game; something you don't see too often, if ever. It's for this reason that Sonic Rivals presents a unique game-play experience that I believe presents opportunities for future titles to expand upon.

The game-play allows for a somewhat chaotic experience that lends itself well to the overall feel of the genre. However, I continuously pondered the possibilities if races were played out with 4 or more characters, rather than just two "rivals".

Future releases of this series should certainly consider allowing four or more racers to compete simultaneously.

All in all, a fairly uncommon and fun experience.

Remember in Sonic Three how there was a racing mode for multiplay? That is essentially what this is, on a bigger level. You run through a typical platforming stage, racing against someone else. Not much else can be said about the game, if that seems appealing to you check this out. The graphics are great, the soundtrack is nothing new - it is typical "sonic sound", and the racing itself is actually addictive, mildly challenging, and fun. Good racer, solid Sonic game, B+ (due to not enough extras/deeper gameplay).
