A blur of Sonic shots

Tuesday 18 July 2006
We've gathered up a bundle of fresh shots of Sonic Rivals, the new blue hedgehog title from Sega coming out for PSP this winter.

The game pits our prickly hero against other characters from the Sonic universe in highly competitive racing. The challenge is to race to the end of the tracks while avoiding the myriad of obstacles set up by the villainous Dr Eggman. Racers are allowed to shove and vault over each other in an attempt to reach the finish line first.

Sega's aim is to capture the spirit of original 2D Sonic gameplay, but in 3D, so expect the action to reach supersonic speeds.
