How fast can you go? If you love to cut loose through twisting, whipping upside-down flipping, high-flying loop-de-loops, you'll love SONIC R! Sonic, the world's fastest Hedgehog, goes nose to toes with the world's meanest mad scientist, Dr. Robotnik. The evil doctor is gunning for the grand prize - the world-famous Chaos Emeralds! Can the fastest racer in the world outrun Robotnik's most diabolical scheme to date? Run, don't walk to wild and wicked head-over-tail speed fun!

  • Race as Sonic or his friends Tails, Knuckles, Amy or even Dr. Robotnik plus many more secret characters!
  • You're all over the map in fully explorable 3D circuits with 360º character control.
  • Five corkscrewing courses with zillions of paths. Race them all and find the most goodies and shortcuts, plus hidden bonus courses!
  • Play 2-player head-to-head, 4-player split screen, and 4-player network play. Dial up frieds or relatives for total Sonic racing fun!
