Japanese Sonic Free Riders Video

1 min read


It’s cooooooool, amazing..and will allow you to have more fun! That’s what this video from SEGA Japan has to say about Sonic Free Riders, the company’s inaugural game for Microsoft’s motion-sensing tech, due for release early next month.

Like many of the initial games for the platform, it’s an on-rails affair; a board-racer that utilises motion-sensing to capture your jumps, twists…and hand-holding endeavours. The advert, replete with Japanese absurdity actually makes the game look surprisingly fun…until fatigue sets in, of course. I’m faaaar too lazy to do that sort of thing for protracted periods of time.

There’s racing, swimming, bob-sleighing, wiping your screen clean and of course, sticking your bum out and flailing your arms about like an absolute loon.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
