4.0 out of 5 stars Blue Thunder March 25, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There is just so much hype going on with Sony right now, on their upcoming Playstation 3 video game console. While that has been the case with fans, there are still some great challenges Playstation 2 fanatics arguably still have a chance to come to play with. That has also been the case with Sonic The Hedgehog as well. Since his debut in the 90's, his character has always been changing around with the need of blue speed for a longtime. Although he has had some great platformers, his racing games weren't really up to par and lacked challenge from Sonic R from the Sega Saturn era, and Sonic Drift 2, a knock off of the Mario Kart games. This time, the fast and the furious definitely are fast and furious.

Sonic Rider for the Playstation 2 is a wild and outrageous ride that takes you in and out of the worlds of Sonic. The game play is more than just simple. There are over a dozen of wild and outrageous tracks like Metal City, Sky Road, and Dr. Robotnik's Egg Factory. In the game you can play through the EX World Grand Prix, and work your way to the top of the pack, or try to improve your skills with the mission mode, where you have to undergo tyricks and collect items within a certain period of time. But, Story mode is where you really learn the basis of the game through the eyes of Sonic, and the Rogues Jet, Storm, and Wave who are new to the Sonic games.

There are also unlockable characters like Shadow, Cream, and others if your practice right. The graphics and sound are definitely amazing, but the manuverability on some of the boards is very difficult, and takes a whole lot to get used to at first. Not only that, but you have to also perform a lot of tricks to keep your air up, and with the race.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surf's Up Dude!!! April 8, 2006
By J. Wood
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
So far this is the latest title in the Sonic series and!! Yes, the best part about Sonic Riders is that it ressurects the element that earned the series a place in gamers' hearts to begin with, speed. In fact that's what this game is all about. It's a new kind of racing game that combines racing with combat in a Sonic title to make one big, and extremely awsome, rodent vs bird frag fest. What's also good here is that unlike Sonic R the characters use air boards to sail down the intricate tracks instead of their feet or trademark vehicles and it's not as slippery. You can also ride on other racers' "turbulance" to catch up with them and even run them over, (always a good laugh). You can also use different weapons aquired throughout the levels against your apponents. And best of all there are two stories to play through, heroes and Babalonians,(the heroes game must be finished first). Think of it as Sonic meets Road Rash on air boards. And of course the story: Sonic, Tails and Knuckles are searching for a chaos emerald when they spot three mysterious figures smashing their way out of a building on flying boards. It turns out that the three figures, who's names are Jet The Hawk, Wave The Swallow and Storm The Albatross are Babalonian thieves who have stolen the emerald and are trying to escape with it. Sonic tries to confront them and gets a good look at Jet while Knuckles throws a few punches and knocks Storm off of his board, which Tails notices has the Babalonian symbol on the underside. Sonic scoops up Storm's board and gives chase only to be bested,(for once), by Jet and knocked to the pavement. Sonic realizes he has "new compitition". They later find out that Eggman has created a race called the "World Grand Prix" in which he has signed up Jet, Wave and Storm as his best racers. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice game choice June 16, 2006
A Kid's Review

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sonic riders rocks! There lots of boards characters, and other unlokables. Here's one flaw-Turbulence. It changes were I want to go. For example- if I want to go to an air pit, A turbulence can change my direction! Then I have to wait longer for more air! Other than that, the game ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buy this game. you wont be sorry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not THAT Bad June 29, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When I saw a commercial of Sonic Riders, I knew I had to have it. Air-Boarding sounded like an interesting idea, and I trusted Sonic games to be better back then. And it was pretty good-I played it almost everyday the first few weeks, and it was really entertaining. But after those few weeks, the idea of running out of air got pretty annoying when you were playing one-player. Sega couldn't make it skateboarding or snowboarding or something? Yeah, the idea's pretty annoying, but I never got the chance to beat the last level in the Babylon story, Sky Road. It was just too challenging-you might say I'm horrible at playing video games, but I'm a real hardcore video gamer, and I just thought it impossible that I couldn't beat a game as simple as Sonic Riders. Two-player mode's pretty fun, although some of the levels are pretty easy, others are a fun challenge. If you're a real Sonic fan like me, then I don't see why it shouldn't be in your collection-it's not that bad, and you actually might like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super fast speed and action! March 19, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Sonic Riders is one of the coolest sonic games ever. The story is about when Sonic Tails and Knuckles are in the city looking for the chaos emralds when Jet and his team have just stole it from the bank. Sonic takes action and goes after Jet and his crew but dosen't get the emrald. The next day day Eggman tells the world that he is holding the wrold grand prix and the winner will get the 7 chaos emrals. Also Eggman says he has found some of the best racers in the galxy which are Jet Wave and Storm. As soon as Sonic realizes Jet is in it Sonic Decides to enter too. Not only can you ride on jetborads you can alos unlock hover bikes and jet shoes. The charecters you can play as are Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Jet, Wave, Storm, Eggman, Cream, Rouge, Shadow, Nights, AIAI, Ulala, E1000000P, and E1000000S. If you are looking for a future raceing game this is a must buy for you.
