A new trailer for Sonic Free Riders has just been released by SEGA Europe, this time focusing on the game’s various weapons. The trailer shows how to use these items with Kinect, such as the Octo-ink, which allows you to squirt ink at your opponent to obstruct their view, the Soda Rocket, which you shake until it bursts and gives you a speed boost and the Tee Shot, which sees you use a golf club to fire a golf ball at your opponents. Plenty of new footage from the various tracks in the game is also on show and we get to some hear a tiny bit of the new voice acting, too.

  1. I can see a lot of those being really satisfying to use during a race. XD

    But I also worry about the Kinect not picking up on the hand motions while playing, but that might be because I’ve never tried one hands-on before.

  2. @TheDanimator ARE YOU KIDDING ME they sound so stupid this is probably why nintendo power said the Omg thing wrong with colors was with the cutscenes but I bet if it was Ryan Drummond doing that it would be a different story wouldn’t it TAKE COVER HERE COMES ANOTHER VOICE WAR.

  3. sega need to make a regular sonic game for kenict because i have never liked any of the rider stuff

  4. @TheDanimator nope I find them to be poorly executed Jasons were way better especially in unleashed 1234 here comes another voice war

  5. Oh please, Jason is shit in the Riders games and most of the games he voiced Sonic in. If that was Jason doing that then some of you guys wouldn’t be bitching about it (or maybe you will be for the last 5 years)

  6. @DocEgg
    No for your information, Nintendo Power has a problem with some of the HUMOR in Colors but they said that they liked the cutscenes and the story.

  7. haha, looks like fun, not taking itself too seriously is nice to see.
    Still apprehensive about the motions not actually working well, experiences on the Wii have taught me motion controls aren’t fantastic =/

  8. Also, another thing: you guys wants to start a freakin voice war over some GRUNTS? Damn you guys are really pathetic.

  9. *sigh*

    From reading the comments on this page, I’d say Voice War II has already begun.

    Besides, every reviewer has had a problem with Drummond AND Griffith. The fact that reviewers are praising Roger Craig Smith shows that this guy has quality, so at least WAIT until the game comes out before you bitch.

  10. I hate his new voice.. he sounds like a little kid…. I liked Jason cuz sonic sounded like a smart guy like that big kid you looked up to.. now he sounds like his balls haven’t doped fully..

  11. Yeah or atleast wait until we actually hear Roger talk as Sonic. Most of the people who is bitching about RCS either bitching about his grunts or his Alton Tower clips but yet the reviewers who’ve actually heard him speak as Sonic in Colors has said that the voice acting is really good.

  12. @DocEgg Thats EXACTLY what I said! These voices sound either childish or just plain annoying! So even tho the sonic games became good, the voices became horrible

  13. oh god not ANOTHER voice war?!?! who gives a damn? just care that he actually HAS A FREAKING VOICE people!! Over some grunts too. Really, stop bitching and LIVE WITH IT.

    And to be excact, I’m really looking foward to actually seeing this game. My friend has an Xbox, and getting the kinect, so this game might actaully be fun!

  14. You’re only basing how horrible or childish the voices you’ve heard just from the grunts but people who’ve actually heard the voice acting has said that they were good -_-

  15. I might get this game for Christmas and I’m thinking of buying an Kinect for it later. I can use the extra exercise. 😀

  16. @ Every whiner

    You see THIS is why everyone says the sonic games these days are bad because of EVERY LITTLE THING!! I be willing to bet that some of you are adults right yet you whine like little children how about we WAIT until the game comes out and THEN we’ll see if the game is bad hmmmmm? Would it please your highnesses??!!!

Would it please your highnesses??!!!

  18. They’re not whining about this game being bad, just the voices even though we really haven’t heard how the characters in the games talk yet. But I agree that we should all wait and hear how the characters voices sounds like and if they actually sound bad then you guys can bitch all you want.

    I’ve seen the trailer and I’m willing to give all the new voices a chance unlike most of these whiners here

  19. @BlueblurC says:

    So…you would be happy if they gave Sonic a deep manly voice? Oh wait, you guys would bitch about that, too. Nevermind.

  20. My turn!

    I think Roger sounds great here, although I’d much prefer it if Sega had just rehired Drummond.

  21. Well firstly I’d like to say that the Sonic voice is sounding like the perfect natural progression for a hedgehog that’s supposed to be almost (if not already) and adult by now.
    Secondly, you can tell the soda can’s action was chosen by men can’t you? lol

  22. I like the voices. =D They sounded great. The only thing that sounded odd was Sonic saying “Yehea!” but that’s merely because he said it twice in a row. He sounds young! I’m not worried about the acting because it was already praised, because we just had 4kids acting (which is the worst it can be and still didn’t bother me much) and cuz it’s freakin pro legend Roger Craig Smith! XD I mean, besides Jaleel White, he’s gotta be the best actor to portray Sonic at least for the games. 😀

    And then I saw comments saying “here comes another voice war!” and I couldn’t believe it. Saying that means you WANT their to be a voice war and aren’t against it, despite it being a bad thing and KNOWING it makes you look like idiots to participate in the “War”. Serious… WAAAAR! WTH? XD

    I agree with TheDanimator. And if he’s minimullen then according to my friend he’s the guy who was passionate about Ryan’s Sonic voice over Griffith’s.

    People are crazy. I’m not even gonna try to convince you cuz you have your opinions and my pleading won’t get through to you anyhoo. But lastly, it didn’t effect me with the 4kids cast, it definately won’t effect me with this awesome new one. 8D

    Most importantly.. I wanna know if this game can be bought in a box case seperate from Kinect so I can buy it while waiting for Kinect’s price to drop. Does anyone know? 😀

  23. I’m not going nuts. XD I’m willing to give the new voice actors a chance. Sonic sounds so young when he shouts but I want to actually hear him talk in a cutscene

  24. @sonfan1984 No I would like him to sound medium, like Jason or Ryan.. that voice does not match his personality he has developed.

    And I said nothing about having it deep like a manly man… like um.. oh look its HIM! OldSpiceMan: look at your comment. now back at mine now back at your comment now back to mine…., sadly, you have nothing better to do but to argue with people, but if you took my comment like an Opinion and stopped bawing then this could have been avoided.. look down back up where are you? your on the sonic stadium, with the guy your ASS U ME ing stuff with, look at your hand.. now back at mine I have it… its an actual butt hurt sonic fan which I think you are… LOOK AGAIN the butt hurt fan IS NOW FLAMMING anything is possible if you stop arguing with peoples opinions, I’m on an Eggmobile. ~ do do DO do DO Dooo~

  25. @blueblurC:No I would like him to sound medium, like Jason or Ryan.. that voice does not match his personality he has developed.”

    But you’ve only heard his grunts and a few yells. I know alot of people has said the same thing about Jason and how his voice acting doesn’t fit Sonic’s personality and that it lacks alot of enthusiasm and emotion compare to Ryan. But now 5 years later the fans seems to love him.

    And LOL @ your OldSpiceMan comment. Nobody’s being butthurt and I’m not flaming anyone. xD It’s just so sad how quick the fans is to hating something new or different. I’ve defended Jason and the 4Kids actors when all the Ryan Drummond/Sonic Adventure fanboys was hating and making fun of them. I gave the 4Kids actors a chance so I’m going to give Roger and the rest of them a chance, too

  26. I mainly just care about getting sucked into the gameplay,more so than the voices myself.That’s what games are there for,to entertain us. Can I refer to Douchy mtnitpick for a second XD Lets learn a lesson from him*not saying anyone a douche,but well…y’know,mtnitpick namesake*. I’m just saying,that we should just stop being picky,try to get along and enjoy the fun. So here’s hoping for some good game play,and from the looks of it a good workout.I know I could stand to start using my muscles more,and build up my stamina. I remember back when video games didn’t rely on voice actors*wow I feel old* Also,someone seriously needs to invest in starting a hove board line,would so buy one!

  27. Whoops,made a few spelling mistakes… Douchey* MitNitpick* anyones* I have a habbit of trying to correct my spelling. Also,knowing the fact that they say there going to start listening to the fans makes me want to start looking on the bright side of things. So much negativity,and sorry for the double post.

  28. Welp, we know now that Sonic doesn’t sound the least bit childish, annoying or sound like a little kid like some of the comments are saying about him.
