Too bad we couldn’t get a new Riders game on Wii with online and all. Otherwise, this looks great.

This music is just as bad as the crap on Sonic 4…loved the game but why the hell would you pick this horrible music. Freebird should have been here. imo.

Uh oh.. You might want to slip in an alternate control scheme soon or almost no one will buy this. (Might I suggest a controller???)
1 star out of 5 is completely unacceptable.
Posted by GenesisDOES on November 4th, 2010 at 1:58 pm
This makes me wish I had an X Box 360. Well this and Halo and JSRF.
Posted by Eamon on November 4th, 2010 at 2:11 pm
If this game is so great, why did Joystiq give it one out of five stars?
Posted by Laelaps on November 4th, 2010 at 2:50 pm
Oh no, the game is only avaible for the XBOX 360 with the Kinect? Darn, I can’t get it! It looks like an awesome game! Maybe in a few years I can play it, when I can afford an XBOX! XD
I want to be FREE!!!
Posted by Chica Ramirez on November 4th, 2010 at 2:58 pm
This made me want a new X-box and Kinect SO MUCH! The music was better than I expected and the game-play looks SOOO FUN! Time to save up for the console, Kinect, and SONIC FREE RIDERS!
Posted by sonic52789 on November 4th, 2010 at 3:06 pm
Man, it looks like an awesome game with awesome music, but I’m not spending $300+ on a kinect. I’ll still get sonic colors if that lightens the mood.
Posted by Mickwhitefire28 on November 4th, 2010 at 3:13 pm
The Sonic “GRRRR” face he made at Jet was hilarious. The graphics look awesome. I want it! I don’t have a 360 tho :C
Posted by JJ on November 4th, 2010 at 4:33 pm
I can’t wait to get Sonic Free Riders!!! A Sonic game without a controller!!!
Posted by Jonathan Cardoza on November 4th, 2010 at 5:25 pm
Jet: ok, NOW, i will never ever EVER be in another Sonic game EVER again.

@Laelaps: Because they are just like Gamespot, they’re biased
Posted by ChaosMatt on November 4th, 2010 at 6:21 pm
SEGA I blew you guys a kiss all the way to San Fransisco just for making a wonderful game. I hope it gets there safe
Posted by SonicSpeed on November 4th, 2010 at 6:46 pm
I want to be free too! MY THUMBS NEED TO BE FREE!! After all that button mashing, I tell ya. Where can I get the Main Theme download???
Posted by Sonic Office on November 4th, 2010 at 10:14 pm
I LOVE the part they’re coming out of the corner in the CG scene!
Posted by Sonic Office on November 4th, 2010 at 10:16 pm
WHY haven’t they invented Extreme Gear yet? I feel like riding one when seeing this trailer and listening to the theme song. It’s quite possible too! All it is, is jet propelled air coming out of them bottom that gives enough force to lift the board which is metal up. They should TOTALLY make these!
Posted by Sonic Office on November 4th, 2010 at 10:22 pm
The game looks as awesome as it could possibly be, the trailer has its own way too. The theme song is very catchy, I have it stuck in to my head. Its a shame though I wont be able to get this game, due to not having a x-box; but thos who do, I recommend to get this game….
I wanna be free, in the wind!
Posted by gerzain on November 4th, 2010 at 11:01 pm
Yay, new voice actors! I wish I had an XBOX 360. D:

I have FOUND the singers for the Theme Song! It’s called Free by Chris Madin & Johnny Gioeli!

SINCERILY YOUR 1#FAN STEPHANIE CADENA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Stephanie on November 5th, 2010 at 2:29 pm
I just heard the voice actors and this is what I think of each character:
Sonic = WHOA! AMAZING! Better than I thought!
Tails = Nice! But a little too mature.
Knuckles = Great!
Amy = Hmmm, she sounds a lot how Cream used to sound. But still pretty good.
Cream = Perfect!
Vector = Nice! Could hardly even notice it was a new voice actor.
Shadow = Sounds like Vincent Price, not Shadow the Hedgehog.
Rouge = A little too high pitched. But still Rouge.
Jet = uh, I kind of like the previous voice actor better.
Storm = Great! Suits him!
Wave = Awesome!
Nice job Sega.
Posted by sonic52789 on November 5th, 2010 at 3:35 pm
The graphics and gameplay are up to par this year ^^ im so impressed at how far Sonic’s come and really happy that they came out with another sonic riders game <3 I really wished it was for PS3 and WII and not just Xbox T_T
Posted by Miki-chii on November 5th, 2010 at 5:51 pm
A lot of good people some I dont like yet
Hope they improve and become as good as 4Kids Co.
Posted by Truesonic on November 5th, 2010 at 6:46 pm
Every other game reviewer on the web too, I guess…
Posted by Laelaps on November 5th, 2010 at 8:37 pm
Geez. Jet is just as stubborn as him being able to fly!
Posted by Sonic Hog on November 5th, 2010 at 9:42 pm
this is cool
i was wondering could you release this image i saw at the sonic event as a wallpaper http://www.tssznews.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/sonic_colors_at_bryant_park_02_by_keigoniwa-d3276zt.jpg
because i am doing a project in school about sonic colors and it would help if i had this image thank
Posted by sonicmovedj on November 6th, 2010 at 1:08 am
Sonic = horrible
Tails = Nice
Knuckles = Good
Amy = WHAT THE HELL?
Cream = horrible
Vector = Nice
Shadow = horrible
Rouge = can’t say, it’s really different forum the good voice from sa2
Jet = ok
Storm = ok
Wave = ok
Why do you change sonic voice every times anyway?
Posted by Mele on November 6th, 2010 at 4:28 am
I AGREE COME ON SEGA STOP FIRING PEOPLE WHY CANT YOU BE LIKE THE JAPANESE UNTIL SOMEONE DIES OR QUITS
COME ON SEGA D: GIVE YOUR FANS A LITTLE HELP HERE DX AND YOU CLAIM YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO YOUR FANS!
I WANT RYAN OR JASON BACK AND BRING BACK DAN GREEN AS KNUCKLES!!!!
Posted by C.J on November 6th, 2010 at 11:09 am
Knuckles- DECENT ( NO POINT IN FIRING DAN GREEN THOUGH)
Amy- NOOOOO WAAAY SHES NOW SUEAQKY
Cream- No just no lol
Jet- EPIC FAIL
Silver- OH NOOO
Blaze- SHE SOUNDS LESS SERIOUS NOW
Wave- Same point as Blaze
Shadow- SOUNDS LIKE A EMO MEXICAN XD NO WAY
Rouge- NOPE I DO NOT LIKE ROUGE HAVING YOUNG VOICES SHE NEEDS AN EDGY VOICE LIKE CAREN DID
Big- Kyle herbert now voices big The Cat haven’t heard him yet Big is not playable in free riders but It just seems unfair the other old characters never got a chance to play him much Jon St jon only in Heroes and Oliver Wyman in Sonic X and Sega All Stars Racing
Im so worried about Espio, Charmy and Omega now :S also cream’s mother
Posted by C.J on November 6th, 2010 at 2:03 pm
The sonic riders series has the best music ever!
Posted by ryan.m on November 6th, 2010 at 5:09 pm
Wow I caved in and bought it and it’s surprisingly GOOD despite what most critics say…
Posted by GenesisDOES on November 6th, 2010 at 8:25 pm
Sonic- WHAT DID YOU DO TO SONIC, THAT IS NOT THE SONIC I KNOW AND LOVE!!!
Knuckles- BRING BACK DAN GREEN, PERIOD!!!
Shadow- JASON GRIFFITH IS SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG
Amy- NOOOOO WAAAAAAY!!!
Silver- NO, HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN!!!
Cream- STILL ANNOYING!!!
Wave- SOUNDS TO MUCH LIKE TAILS!!
Vector- WE WANT DAN GREEN!!!
-WHY CAN’T SEGA JUST STICK WITH THE ALREADY ESTABLISHED VOICE ACTERS?
-Why is the only thing that Sega did right was keep Eggmans voice actor?
-Are we going to have new voice actors in a FIVE YEARS TIME from now?
Posted by Silverwind on November 6th, 2010 at 8:48 pm
Why do you guys hate Sonic’s Voice?! It sounds just like Ryan, are you even listening to the right one? Listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNiaDRSSJ6Y
Posted by sonic52789 on November 6th, 2010 at 11:06 pm
@sonic52789 No offense, I love Sonic’s voice. and I also have to agree with you on Tails, but Amy sounds like Minnie Mouse and Vector sounds like Cookie Monster.
Posted by Deven Ciufalo on November 7th, 2010 at 4:50 am
THEY’RE ALL BETTER THAN THE 4KIDS CAST!!!
Probably with the exception of Shadow
Posted by Jmack on November 7th, 2010 at 10:22 am
awesome game! thank you SEGA!
Posted by sco on November 7th, 2010 at 1:22 pm
And i like some new voice charactres…with exception of Amy and Jet(sucks)
Overall:9 =] thx
Jet: I like to say hedgehog….HEDGEHOG…..auahahahah
Posted by Saberyoko on November 13th, 2010 at 8:32 am
This is an excellent game, I own i and I can tell you those videos telling people kinect controls suck are either stupid or payed by someone to give bad reviews. The game really takes advantage of the sensor, you have to perform all the moves as the game says, they complain about the response but you all have to consider that the scanner calibrates to what it sees, if you don´t take the time to set your profile right you´ll have a hard time matching the required actions. Some say the menus are hard to navigate, I really don´t see that, you can either push the ring by hand or just call the name of the option you want and then select it, I strongly recommend that you guys don´t belive the reviews just like that, try it yourselves, experience it firsthand and take your time to learn the controls and then decide for yourselves weather it´s worth your time and money or not.
Posted by Crono on November 13th, 2010 at 9:40 am
I dont know about everyone eles but i say we have to get the old voices back Sonic’s new one sucksss and cause you got rid of Jason we lost a good Shadow voice and a Jet voice. Tails’s voice i can deal with but if you every get Jason back get Tails back too. And what the hell is with Vector being on Amys team. One we gotta bring Espio and Charmy back in the game as players and i read a article about Sega bringing Mighty the Armadillo back and putting some Sonic Comic book charcaters in the game for better story and plots. Two put back Omega and Rouges and by Rouges i mean bring her Sonic X voice back.It would make sales in Games and Comics go up and increase 10 fold. and instead of using just Eggman use Scourge the hedgehog and Metal Sonic. One final thing keep the graphics of Sonic unleashe or Next Gen Sonic those were the best.
Posted by Mikey on November 18th, 2010 at 2:51 pm
it could’ve been for the ps3 too but they just used xbox 360
Posted by sonicforps3 on November 18th, 2010 at 4:41 pm
I agree with sonicforps3. I don’t want to sound whinny or anything but it’s true they could have. They made sonic riders 1 and 2 on different systems and now sonic riders 3 only on 360 that’s kinda dumb.
Posted by # 1 sonic fan on February 16th, 2011 at 3:12 pm
All the new voices are meh and horrid
The only good voice is
Keith Silverstein is a great voice for vector he combines the elements of previous VAs Marc’s gruffness and the tone Dan Green and Jimmy Zoopi used
KEITH ROCKS and Orbot has two great vocie actors Kirk Thronton does better with his Orbot vocie than his Horrendous Shadow voice :/
I miss the 4Kids Cast
Posted by C.J on April 21st, 2011 at 2:14 pm
I definately disagree with you Jmack lol
