Sonic Riders takes gamers on an electrifying ride
on air boards at break-neck speeds through a wide variety of tracks.
Catching massive air and pulling off insane aerial tricks will power
up players against their opponents in a race to the finish line.
In Sonic Riders, Sonic and his friends are on a mission to foil the
evil Dr. Eggman and his new henchmen, the Babylon Rogues. Dr.Eggman
has created the Ex World Grand Prix; a no-holds barred racing series
where the fastest "riders" in the world participate in this
tournament. Never one to turn down a challenge to prove his speed,
Sonic and his friends join the tournament and uncover Dr. Eggman's
true intentions. In Sonic Riders, players race on air boards through
13 amazingly detailed and challenging courses in either single player
or 2 player multi-player mode. The innovatively designed tracks are
filled with collectables, jump ramps for high flying acrobatic tricks,
and long rails for grinding action. Riders will also ride "Turbulence"
– waves generated from other riders – to boost their own speed.
"Turbulence" can also be used as a moving half-pipe so riders can
perform aerial tricks while racing past fellow competitors.
