Rated 5 out of 5 by from All you have to do is Calibrate! I bought this game and when I read the reviews I thought it was going to suck! Well it does if you don't Calibrate it. That's why people said it stinks, they din't calibrate. Once you calibrate then the game is awesome! I would say ignore the bad reviews and just calibrate! Then it will work fine! I love the game! I would say buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is pretty good, to be honest Ok, so I have seen way too many reviews that write off this game as unresponsive and that you can't jump in and play. Well, I am here to tell you that the game works pretty well, considering it was a launch title. For those who think that they need to lean over SO FAR to get your character to turn, that is a COMPLETE LIE. The reason i say this is due to the fact that it calibrates to your movements before each race; think less is more in this instance. for the gameplay, I feel that the game is pretty fun, overall if you play through the tutorials when you start the game up for the first time. That is why people keep giving this game a bad rep; They jump in and don't take the time to read the manual or do the tutorials. I have also played multiplayer; there are issues, but like I have said, IT WAS A LAUNCH TITLE, launch titles are usually going to have issues. All in all, this game should be given a chance because if you get it used you can always return it within a week of purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Racing Game For Kinect Sonic Free Riders is a really spectacular game and here's why. Gameplay: is great. You get to select from Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Jet, Wave and Storm and more to move into six races and two more later in the game. Graphics: the graphics are the best. You'll just admire them as soon as you race. Sound: the sound is pretty good. A lot of fast paced rock(ish) music. This is one of my favorite sonic racing games the is. Don't listen to the negative reviews. They aren't good at it or not describing the good parts about the game itself. Pros: Sonic Free Riders has six races that are four or more minutes long and a large variety of characters, tracks, extreme gear, and gear parts. Cons: Kind of unresponsive menu controls and race controls during two players. Overall it is a great game for kinect but it isn't a must own but in my opinion it is a really fun kinect racing game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good. This game really looked like it had potential. It worked okay for a while, but the kinect really couldn't keep up. The levels were cool and the game would have been awesome, but if you like leaning over 30 degrees to move an inch and run into the sidelines because you cant turn fast enough... well... that's what your getting. You don't have enough control and it just gets annoying.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst Sonic game yet As a Kinnect gamer, this game was pretty good. As a Sonic fan, this was the worst game ever. The graphics and sounds were pretty good, but the storyline, the controls, and the lasting appeal were just the worst I have ever witnessed in my life. I do not recommend this to any Sonic fans, but Kinnect fan can have at it.
