The first thing that probably comes to mind when you hear “Sonic Kinect game” is probably visions of yourself having to run in place at hyper speeds to recreate the iconic speedsters penchant for blistering velocity. Fortunately, this isn’t the case, however, Sonic Free Riders, Sega’s snowboarding launch title for Kinect, will definitely have you huffing and puffing just as much, and perhaps even bloooowwinng your back out. Don’t believe me? Check out what Kevin Kelly said in his review:
“Kinect wants you to know that ‘You are the controller,’ and nothing hammers that point home more than an extended period of time playing this title. Unless you’re Michael Phelps, you’ll be sweating by the time you finish your first full race, and just the tutorials alone will have you breathing hard. Not that America couldn’t benefit from a little more workout, but dang.”
There's plenty more where that came from in our Sonic Free Riders review.
