||Now comes the racer Sonic Riders,

After all, Sonic R for the defunct Saturn console had potential and the
best bits about recent hedgehog games have been the frenzied,

its marketing book, took a look at the success of EA's SSX franchise,
and decided that its blazing fast characters would be better served on
snowboards. They aren't.
