Sonic Riders gravitates in images

Sonic Riders gravitates in images

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity goes back on the track with these new images on Nintendo Wii and Playstation 2. The graphics engine has an old smell to it especially in comparison with the trailer unveiled a couple days ago. It is better to not watch this game while on static mode so we can all dodge nausea given by poor textures and polygons...

How can we destroy the Sonic brand more?

- I know! Let's make a quick and bad Mario Kart clone to PS2 then port it quick to Wii! Money!

I would say this is more like Trickstyle (if anyone remembers that) or SSX
In general Sega is trying to rebound back to some status of good franchise mascot games alongside Nintendo

    GriftGFX I think Blizzard's mass appeal mandate sorta touches everything too :) (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's a well sculpted package when it comes to character design and art direction in general. The map treatments remind me of fighters too with their elaborate themes that are tied to characters. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's definitely in the spirit of fighters. I think there's a heavy western influence in OW's art direction too is all. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i don't think it's a coincidence. which leads to my initial comment, that blizz was mimicking capcom with the OW designs. (7 Hours ago)

    Melmoth @GriftGFX: Arnold Tsang is working as lead character concept artist at blizzard, and has done many capcom themed pieces for udon. according to his linkedin profile he is currently employed by both. (7 Hours ago)
