Product Description

"Sonic Riders" for the GameCube can be the perfect mixture of nostalgia and excitement. Racing games may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Sonic, but this game may have truly stood the test of time. It deserves its place as a classic. This GameCube title can plunge you into the universe of the blue hedgehog. You can also find all the characters you are familiar with, including Eggman, Tails, Knuckles, Cream the Rabbit, and Amy Rose. "Sonic Riders" is one of the most exciting titles among the Sonic games available for the GameCube. The game features sixteen different tracks that you will have to master. Each track has its unique environment. You will find some places that were already featured in other Sonic games such as "Metal City," "Splash Canyon," or "Babylon Garden." Unlike traditional games that typically feature cars or other similar vehicles, Sonic and friends here are using hoverboards. There is more to this game than winning races. There is a story line that has some fun animation, and there is also an epilogue.

"Sonic Riders" pits two teams against each other: Team Sonic and the Babylon Rogues. You will get access to the second part of the game and be able to compete on more tracks once you complete the Heroes Story that focuses on Sonic and his friends. You can have a blast learning how to control the hoverboards and start exploring their different abilities. You can use speed to overtake an opponent, use poles to increase your speed or start flying, and use special abilities that some characters have. There are different objects on the track that can be collected and used to fly or to unlock other special abilities. Each character is unique and has unique and different strengths and weaknesses. One of the most interesting aspects of the game play is the use of an air tank. The air tank can be used to get a boost or to jump higher. If you end up using up all of your air before the end of the race, your character will have to run and you might have a hard time keeping up with the hoverboards. There are different moves that you will have to master to win races, including cornering your opponents, performing charged jumps, and going around sharp turns. These moves are very different from what you would typically find in a racing game, which can make "Sonic Riders" a fun game for anyone who loves the Sonic franchise or wants an original game with hoverboards. You can play through a story mode in which you have to win races to defeat Eggman and keep him from taking control of Babylon Garden. "Sonic Riders" can remain interesting after you complete the story and win the World Grand Prix since you will be able to unlock more tracks after you win. That way, you will be able to keep working on your moves and reflexes as you play through the races again. This can be a must have title for your Nintendo GameCube, especially if you enjoyed the other titles in the Sonic racing series.
