Sonic Riders is a fast-paced air board racing game featuring a fan-favourite cast of Sonic characters and some brand new rivals to battle against. It's a must-buy title for all SEGA fanboys. Developed by the infamous SONIC TEAM in Tokyo, Sonic Riders integrates extreme sports, high-speed racing and head-to-head battles, and offers a new racing experience with Sonic which is unlike any before in any other Sonic games - or any other racing games, come to think of it. The storyline in Sonic Riders is classic SEGA - Dr. Eggman challenges Sonic and his friends to a Worldwide Grand Prix, and the prize for coming out on top is an ultra-rare Chaos Emerald! Gliding at breakneck speed on air boards - performance-orientated for each playable character - you get to experience a heightened sense of extreme sports-style racing tension as Sonic and his pals perform tricks and stunts over the treacherous wide-open terrain. Sonic of course is well known to be the speediest on the ground, but will he be able to outrun all the others on his air board? Its basically up to you to glide Sonic to victory over Dr. Eggman and his legendary air rider group, The Band of Thieves: Babylon.
