If Sonic Were a ventriloquist's dummy, he wouldn't want to come out of his chest He'd be shy, beaten and unwilling to star in another over-sped, under-playable iteration of his glorious 2D days. But the crowds come, and the unfeeling ventriloquist pulls him out yet again, and this time he's been dropped on a futuristic hoverboard. Sonic's fast, right? Well just imagine how fast he'd be, if he was, erm, standing still - on a hoverboard!
The game is a basic racer - hit go-faster areas, find shortcuts, collect rings for fairly meaningless Extreme Gear. It's so basic, Sonic Riders feels like nothing more than an over-padded mini-game, and the frustration of the control, response and the sense of luck that infects the results has been carried over perfectly from the console versions.
And no, you didn't miss the main review - this game went straight to budget for a reason.
