Sonic Riders is a game that combines the legendary speed of the iconic character Sonic the Hedgehog with the concept of exciting races on the track.

Developed by Sonic Team and published by SEGA, the game was first released in 2006.

This game was originally only released for the GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox consoles. However, seeing a fairly positive interest, this game was also released for the desktop platform (Windows) in the same year.

Sonic Riders changes the concept of Sonic games, which usually carry adventure and platforming genres, into a racing genre filled with action and extreme speed elements.

Unlike the traditional racing game, Sonic Riders takes players to the city skyline with a futuristic skateboard called "Extreme Gear".

Players can choose from a variety of familiar Sonic characters, such as Tails, Knuckles, and many more.

Players will be presented with competition between these legendary characters, racing each other using their Extreme Gear, going through tracks that defy the logic of physics, and performing spectacular tricks.
