Sonic Riders is a racing game in the Sonic series released in 2006 for Nintendo Gamecube, Playstation 2, and Xbox. In the game, the player competes against characters among 16 tracks in either story or battle mode. It was developed by Sonic Team and Now Production, published by Sega, and released in February 2006 in Japan and North America. It was released in Europe the following month and for Windows at the end of the year. A Game Boy Advance version, developed by Backbone Entertainment, was cancelled.
Players ride their gear through a series of tracks in a variety of places in Sonic's world. Rings that can be collected in all single player races can be used in the shop to buy more gear (single player only). All gear run off of air as a fuel. The player can burn some of that fuel in a quick burst by pressing the B button. If you make contact with another rider while using one of these bursts, you will be able to stun them, cause them to lose their rings, and bring them to a complete stop.
There are several jumps in each track in which you can pull off trick to gain more fuel. Tricks can be performed by moving the control stick in different direction. If you hold the stick in a certain directoin for a time, you character will form to make a better trick such as only holding on to the gear with one hand. If you do not land your trick though, you will lose speed so it is important to mantain a good landing. Timing is key when it comes to jumping. The closer to the edege of the jump, the faster you can perform a trick.
