Sonic Riders is the latest game to take a much loved platform character and throw him and his buddies into a racing game. Players ride hover boards and can pull off tricks and stunts while battling for position against other racers. Of course, the objective is to retrieve a prize Chaos Emerald, which Dr Eggman just so happens to be in possession of.

The official website has detailed game information, screenshots and movies showing the game in action. Sonic Riders is due in March for PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube.
