    i. INTRODUCTORY NOTE
    
    Yes, I'm sure you've noticed the change in accounts by now. It's been a 
    long time since I've been on GFAQS or GS but I'm back for now. I had no 
    choice but to make a new account and I will elaborate: 
    
    First, I'd like to say that it TRULY is me and to minimize confusion 
    (sorta.. :P) I named my new account with a similar name. My email is 
    still the same 'case if you have doubts.
    
    Second, the reason behind me making my new account: basically, I lost 
    my password to my GS account and after months of trying to get it back, 
    no dice.. What happened was, the email address I saved the changes for 
    was wrong so I couldn't even send myself a Password Request Form. It 
    was frustrating cause I knew there was no way any of the administrators 
    would believe it was really me so I really had no choice.
    
    I've received literally LOADS of emails regarding many of my FAQS, 
    prominently for Sonic Riders, and Need for Speed: MW 5-1-0. You can 
    look forward to possible updates and new FAQ's by me for some other 
    games.

    2. FAQ Information
    
    This is an FAQ created by me to help all you Sonic Riders 
    fans get through the game as quickly and as easily as 
    possible. But, don't count on completing it in a couple 
    of hours! ;) Also, be aware that this guide contains MANY
    SPOILERS about the stages, as well as Story Mode. If you do
    not want to spoil things for yourself, you are reading this
    guide at your own risk! Be aware of this.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    4. Version History
    
    Version 0.7 - The guide meets GameFAQS standards, however,
    detail in some of the sections could be added in a later
    version. Also, my own personal records will be also incorporated
    in a later version. Also, a section pertaining to shortcuts as
    well as general tips for each of the 16 tracks will definitely
    be added in a later version. Missions for the Mission Mode 
    section of the guide will also be added in a later version.
    Gear Gallery list is not 100% complete as I have not fully
    discovered all Gear in the game as of yet. As I find new Gear, 
    I will input them into the Gallery section. Each gear in the 
    Shop Section will be gone into more detail in a later version.
    
    Version 0.75 - Edited error I made in World Grand Prix. Changed
    from Dry Desert to DARK Desert. Was more specific in how to
    damage the Babylon Guardian in Story Mode.
    
    Version 0.8 - Changed Bronze Emblem requirements for World Grand 
    Prix. Edited the Shop section - however, there is still room for
    improvement. Gear numbers: 42, 41, 54, 38, 15, 19, 21, 22, 28, 29,
    32, 30, and 36 to the Gear Gallery. Gear number 38's name was edited
    slightly (in spacing).
    
    Version 0.85 - Added stats to E-10000 R for Survival Battle Mode. 
    Edited section about the Top 5 Worst characters to use in Survival
    Battle Mode.
    
    Version 0.86 - Once again, edited Top Worst character to use in
    Survival Battle Mode list. Added an FAQ Section to the guide.
    Added Spoiler warning to FAQ Information section.
    
    Version 0.9 - Added a new discovered Item Box in Survival Race 
    Mode; Added Mission Mode Section format - not all info is filled
    in, however, it will be coming shortly.
    
    Version 0.95 - Edited a couple of typos on course names. Added my
    personal records to the guide. Added more to the FAQ section of the
    guide. Also added new info to Survival Battle section as well as 
    edited Top 5 Best Characters List. Added more tips to Tag Mode section 
    and added format for Gear Section. Also, I finally added my personal
    records to the guide. Edited methods of unlocking "Catch Me if
    You Can" in the Audio Room. Also, I will go into more detail about
    EACH TRACK in Version 1.0 or higher. Many are failing to see that this 
    guide is less than Version 1.0 as of yet. Patience, please!
    
    Version 1.0 - Added detailed info to each Default Gear with the
    exception of the "E-Rider" Gear for Dr. Eggman. I also edited some
    of my personal records in Free Race and Time Attack. Added a new
    section, "Quotes". Format is established for this section but
    not all information is filled in as of yet. "Tracks" section has
    been added to the guide, also. Only format has been established,
    though. The guide now has all sections inputted into the guide 
    (possibility of more but not that high), thus, the guide is now at 
    Version 1.0, at last! Sections will now be gone into further detail in 
    alternate versions. The final change was the editing of the order of 
    Type-W and Type-S Gear.
    
    Version 1.1 - Added more quotes to Quotes section. Format has
    now been established there. Format has also been established
    in Tracks section and Metal City track section has been started
    and is in progress. Descriptor for the stage is all that is missing.
    Work will be started on Night Chase and potentially other tracks
    next version.
    
    Version 1.2 - Added descriptors for Splash Canyon, Red Canyon, and,
    Metal City; further descriptors will be added later; added more info 
    on Metal City. New quotes added to Quotes section; some quotes have 
    been edited. Also, a new record has been recorded for Metal City in 
    Free Race. In the Gear section, I added a bit of information on
    the "Access" Gear but not much. Edited an error in the Table of
    Contents, as well.
    
    Version 1.3 - Edited one of Omochao's Quotes; added more quotes to
    the Quotes section; updated personal records for Sand Ruins and
    Sky Road; added a secret in Snow Valley (Survival Battle); added some
    info on the "Chaos Emerald" and the "Magic Carpet" Gear; edited one
    of Knuckles' quotes; added info to one of Storm's Missions in
    Splash Canyon; added a part I missed in my formatting for the Mission
    Mode section.
    
    Version 1.4 - Edited personal records on Metal City, Ice Factory, SEGA
    Carnival, SEGA Illusion, Splash Canyon, Green Cave, White Cave; edited 
    error in Story Mode - Sand Ruins; edited "Thank You" section to be
    "Acknowledgements" instead (sounds more catchy!); added a "Backlog"
    section to the guide to help keep track of things I need to
    do to the guide; edited format for Advantages/Disadvantages for
    each Gear in the Gear section but it still hasn't fully been
    implemented as of yet; Advantages/Disadvantages for Gear: Cover-S,
    Cover-F, Cover-P, Gambler, Grinder; added contact information to the
    Acknowledgements section of the guide; added about 4 more tips
    to Survival Battle Mode section.
    
    Version 1.41 - Edited contact information.
    
    Version 1.5 - Added track descriptors for all tracks remaining in
    the Tracks section of the guide; added Advantages/Disadvantages for A 
    LOT of Gear as well as Statistics; on the note of the Gear Section, I
    also edited the formatting of this section, as well as filled in a
    lot of missing information - there's still more work to be done, 
    though. Added track overviews for some tracks. Edited Shop Section a 
    teensy bit.
    
    Version 1.51 - IMPORTANT NOTE regarding my account added. New quotes 
    added. 
    Records Section updated.
    
    Version 1.52 - New sites added to list of allowed places to host this 
    guide. Some formatting changes. Introductory Note edited slightly.
    
    Version 1.54 - Edited minor touch-ups in formatting. Edited FAQ.
    Finally slowly started to add more information on the tracks since it 
    was requested A LOT (you may see them all up soon). Edited a lot of 
    typos. Edited gear section. Edited some of the mission sections. Will
    Continue to add track information in next version. Other updates that
    are desired by users can be requested.
    
    Version 1.541 - Minor edits.

    them:

    Be sure to observe the Type Skills that are most common throughout
    each of the courses and utilize the right Character and Gear to

    who gain the Gold Emblem on either of the Cups!

    6. Story Mode
    Hold a race based on the storyline.
    
    
    ******** Story Mode Intro - Heroes ********
    
    
    We find Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails on the search for a Chaos
    Emerald at night in Future City when suddenly, three mysterious
    figures appear on the scene, being chased by a bunch of police
    cars. Knuckles attempts to knock Storm off his board, Tails 
    notices the emblem on that same board, and Sonic uses that same
    board to chase Jet and his band. However, Jet overtakes Sonic 
    and Sonic is joined by his two friends as they leave the scene. 
    
    The next day, however, Dr. Eggman announces the "EX World Grand
    Prix", 'a tournament to see who's the best of the best with 
    Extreme Gear'. At first, Sonic and the others are sceptical but
    once they see the current champions on-screen of the billboard
    they are observing, they notice they are the same people they
    met last night in Future City. Sonic then pronounces that him,
    Tails, and Knuckles will all enter into this competition in an
    attempt to find out more about what Eggman is up to as well as
    uncovering the secrets behind the two mysterious birds...
    
    
    ******** Metal City ********
    
    Mission: Finish in the Top 3!
    Designated Character: Sonic
    Difficulty: 4/10
    
    Analysis:
    Sonic's first race in the EX World Grand Prix! Sonic must race
    against 7 other E-10000G robots in an attempt to come in 1st,
    2nd or 3rd Place. Pretty easy even if you are a beginner to 
    the game. 
    
    Strategies:
    -Hold the A Button when you are near the first ramp and if you
    let go with the right timing, whilst holding up to perform a 
    Front Flip, you can head onto the higher platform which should
    help put you in the top positions.
    -Since you are a Speed-type character, head for the rails at 
    the start of the level if you failed to reach the higher 
    platform at the start
    -Avoid performing tricks at the second ramp after the Flight 
    Accelerators; this may give you air but it will also slow you
    down if you are not quick with your tricks
    -Head towards the left tunnel, not the right, or you may find 
    yourself overwhelmed by barricades
    -After the left tunnel, stick towards the sides and wait for
    the ramps that appear at the side right before the on-going
    traffic hustle. Head up the half-ramp and perform a trick or
    two, then, whilst aloft, press the A Button to guide the rail
    in mid-air. Not only will this help you avoid the traffic but
    it can also help you come near first place
    -Perform a Dash or two on the straightaway after the tight 
    corner and hold the A Button when near the ramp and if you
    release it on time, you will fly straight above a very high 
    platform that will definitely put you in the lead!
    
    
    ******** Splash Canyon ********
    
                   Intro  
    
    Knuckles and the others exit Future City whilst discussing
    about the three mysterious rouges as well as Dr. Eggman's plot.
    However, as they arrive, Amy is waiting there for Sonic to arrive.
    Sonic and the others are about to back away from Amy but Wave 
    appears on the scene, laughing and scolding at the way Tails 
    designed Sonic's Extreme Gear. This sparks his pride and Tails
    plans to show Wave who's the mecha-maniac in these parts!
    
                   Race  
    
    Mission: Finish in the Top 3!
    Designated Character: Tails
    Difficulty: 4/10
    
    Analysis:
    Surprisingly enough, with Tails, this race should be a sinch!
    In my opinion, I find this level easier than Metal City. But,
    don't get cocky yet. Harder levels are to come afterwards...
    
    Strategies:
    -At the first jump, after the wide corner, if you hold the A
    Button and release it at the right moment whilst still remaining
    towards the left, you can dash right into an Accelerator that 
    will lead you onto a higher platform that will help you get ahead
    of your opponents
    -At the second jump, get a good trick combo and stick to your
    left, for past the waterfall is a runway you can use to reach
    2 Accelerators that will prove to be an effective shortcut for
    you to cross
    -After the waterfall, head left and dash up the runway and into 
    the 3 Accelerators so you can move ahead of the pack
    -After the cave area, perform a nice trick combo and be sure to
    jump high into the air for you may reveal a Rainbow that will 
    send you high-flying above your opponents below you
    -After this large jump, ride your opponents' turbulence in
    such a manner that you'll be able to overtake them. However, be
    sure to get a good trick combo and gain a lot of air for the 
    Turbulence may not provide ample opportunity for you to overtake
    an opponent
    
    
    ******** Egg Factory ********
    
                   Intro
    
    Knuckles has, apparently, separated from the group. He, however,
    encounters Storm whilst exploring Eggman's base. Knuckles and
    Storm have an argument and E-10000R unwittingly gets involved! 
    They decide to settle their dispute on the race track. 
    
                   Race  
    
    Mission: Defeat Storm! (Finish in 1st Place!)
    Designated Character: Knuckles
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Analysis:
    Eggman's Base is filled with traps and tight corners but you 
    should be able to handle them successfully with Knuckles as your
    character. However, be careful when you get to the area with the
    rotating capsules. This area could decide whether or not you 
    come in first place.
    
    Strategies:
    -Note that even if Storm comes in a position behind you in the end
    if one of the robots cross the finish line first, the race is over
    so you had better do your best to keep your position in 1st Place.
    -At the first jump, be sure to execute a nice trick combo to
    get some air you can use to Dash at the next two corners
    -At the second jump, if you hold the A Button long enough and 
    release it with just the right timing, you'll go straight above
    a high platform that will give you a decent advantage on the race.
    -After the trampoline, be sure to stick to your right and overturn
    the barrels to reveal a shortcut where you must drift a corner 
    after exiting the shortcut
    -Between the rotating capsules is a 100-Ring Box. It may be worth
    going for if you are behind but if you're a beginner to the game
    and still trying to get used to the controls, I wouldn't
    recommend you go for it, even though it'll help you to get in
    1st Place
    -Stick to your left, near the rotating capsules and you'll come 
    across a path where an Automatic Trail will be found at the
    end of it. Rotate the Control Stick continuously and this shortcut
    should thrust you into 1st Place or in another one of the Top 3
    positions
    
    
    ******** Green Cave ********
    
                   Intro
    
    We arrive in the jungle where Sonic is brushing up on his skills
    to get further acquainted with his gear. However, Jet appears on
    the scene and he starts to spark Sonic's pride by stating he
    must try harder if he is to survive the competition 'till the 
    end. This then gives an indication to Tails that in order to help
    them win the EX World Grand Prix, he'll need to improve Sonic's 
    gear even further.
    
                   Race  
    
    Mission: Defeat Wave! (Finish in 1st Place!)
    Designated Character: Tails
    Difficulty: 8/10
    
    Analysis:
    Quite difficult but not impossibly hard. You must come in 1st 
    place to win even if Wave comes in a position lower than you 
    near the finish line. Don't get lost along the jungle track!
    
    Strategies:
    -Perform a nice trick combo after the first jump to get an 
    advantage of speed on your opponents
    -Along this wide corner, try Air Sliding, or, you can wade it
    out on someone else's Turbulence.
    -After the first corner to the right, head up the runway straight
    ahead to dash into the 4 Accelerators aloft in the air. This
    should get you in 1st, 2nd or 3rd Place easily.
    -After the centipedes, be sure to head up the ramp after the 
    narrow corner at the side and fly right into the Accelerators 
    aloft in the air. The Accelerators will lead you to the second-
    to-last jump
    -At this jump, be sure to hold A for quite some time and release
    with accurate timing to go shooting high above your opponents.
    If you go high enough, you may encounter a secret of spider webs
    which prove to be an effective shortcut that will certainly put
    you in 1st Place if your opponents fail to get it (which is 
    kinda hard to tell if they will or not)
    
    
    ******** Sand Ruins ********
    
                  Intro 
    
    Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles have all made it to the final race
    of the EX World Grand Prix. Amy has vowed to cheer Sonic on
    but Jet and his gang hope to defeat Team Hero and get the
    7 Chaos Emeralds which are now all assembled at the Ruins.
    
                   Race  
    
    Mission: Defeat Jet! (Finish in 1st Place!)
    Designated Character: Sonic
    Difficulty: 7/10
    
    Analysis:
    It's the final race of the EX World Grand Prix! Will you be
    able to handle the pressure of coming in first place?! Only time
    will tell. Be sure, though, to ride Turbulence and fully take
    advantage of your Type Skills for these will lead you to victory
    against Jet.
    
    Strategies:
    -At the first big jump, be sure to get a huge combo so you can
    press ahead of the pack right at the start
    -After the first big jump, stick to your left and grind the rail
    set before you; be sure to press A at the right moment to grind
    the second rail near the first one
    -After the rails, be sure to Dash
    -At the next jump, be sure to get another big combo so you
    can recover any lost air
    -Stick to the left after the jump and grind the rail that appears
    in light blue at the side of one of the platforms you are on; but
    be aware that there are two more rails to grind so after the first
    rail, press A with correct timing and move the Control Stick to your
    left to grind the second rail, then right when you press A for the
    third 
    -After all these rails, be sure to Dash continuously to press on 
    ahead of your opponents who probably used their Type abilities
    to press ahead of the pack (and you in the process)
    -After the tight corner, Air Slide to your right after all of
    the pedestals to your right appear out of the ground. Do so 
    correctly and you can gain quite a bit on your opponents
    
    ******** Babylon Garden ********
    
                  Intro  
    
    Both Team Hero and Team Babylon are in hot pursuit of Dr. Eggman
    who has taken Jet's ancestral control box and he plans to gain
    the treasure of Babylon. With the stakes set between Jet and
    Sonic, this level proves to be the perfect track for them to
    settle their Speed feuds once and for all!
    
                   Race  
    
    Mission: Defeat Jet once and for all!
    Designated Character:
    Difficulty: 9/10
    
    Analysis:
    Certainly, the hardest level in all of Heroes Story. This level
    will have you trying to beat it for quite a while. Try not to
    stress yourself TOO much over it, and just remember a few 
    things...
    
    Strategies:
    -Remember, rails and Air Slides are your friends! Use them to
    your full advantage in this level. Braking may also be 
    a good technique to consider if you haven't used it up 'till
    now
    -There are many turns throughout the level that have no railings
    so there is a much higher chance of you falling off. Along these
    paths, try braking as well as Air Sliding. Knowing when to use 
    each may be tough but practice makes perfect, right?
    -After the first big jump, be sure to Air Slide around the 
    tight corner whilst using the Control Stick to get around it.
    -Ride the large winds of Turbulence from the Jet Planes and
    use the arrows as they appear to get some air and speed
    -Use the Jet Planes to overtake your opponents whilst aloft
    by rotating the Control Stick repeatedly in the right direction
    -Be sure to grind the rails found to the left of the path after
    landing from the Jet Planes. 
    -After grinding, stick to the right of the course so as not to
    be overtaken when one of the Jet Planes destroys part of the 
    track, exposing a large gap.
    -Near the end, the final turn should be taken with care. Rather
    than Air Sliding, try braking, and then, Dashing so you won't
    fall off along the no-rail path.
    -If you hold the A Button and release with correct timing at
    the final jump, you could land on an above platform, and with
    a powerful Dash, this may help you to overtake your opponents
    right before the goal!
    
                   Post-Race
    
    Sonic finally catches up with Dr. Eggman but he plans to use Amy
    into blackmailing Sonic so he can get the treasure of Babylon
    no dice! However, what he wasn't counting on was the new gear 
    Tails designed for Sonic for it helped him to get the control box
    back from Dr. Eggman. Jet, as if on que, appears on the scene, and
    he admits defeat. However, Sonic and the others feel it would be
    fair to give it back to Jet. Wave rudely takes it from Sonic and
    they leave the scene. However, just as Sonic is about to leave,
    Amy comes in and is ready to tackle Sonic with her Piko Piko
    Hammer for abandoning her! Sonic sure has his hands full doesn't 
    he? But what about the Babylon Rouges? Have they left the Garden?
    Or are they still lurking nearby? The next story will answer those
    questions...
    
    ******** Story Mode Intro - Babylon ******** 
    
    The Babylon Rouges are minding their own business inside their
    airship when Dr. Eggman boards the ship and approaches Jet and
    his gang. He praises the Babylon Rouges for their infamous
    work and he divulges some info on the treasure of Babylon 
    Garden. Jet is then shown a picture of Dr. Eggman's rival, the
    speediest hedgehog on planet Earth, Sonic the Hedgehog. Jet is
    unfamiliar with this "Sonic" character but he is certain that
    with his Extreme Gear, nothing nor anyone will stop him from
    finding the treasure of Babylon. Then, the stage is set when they
    are able to locate Sonic out in the city ready to challenge Jet.
    
    ******** Night Chase ******** 
    
    Mission: Show Sonic what you're made of! (Finish in 1st Place!)
    Designated Character: Jet
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    Analysis:
    Jet journeys through the city track trying to defeat Sonic to
    the goal along with using the Turbulence of his teammates to help
    him press on forwards. Will Sonic lose his first match against 
    Jet or will Jet see for himself why he's pronounced the speediest
    hedgehog around?
    
    Strategies:
    -At the very start, be sure to get a nice trick combo, for if you 
    release the A Button at the right moment, you'll launch over to 
    a platform that will push you into the lead!
    -If you miss the platform, be sure to stick to the left of the 
    course, for two rails await you near the start of it; along the
    first rail, once it evens out and you start heading straight ahead
    along the rail, a second rail will be visible to the right of you.
    Be sure to press the A Button to get on to the rail (whilst also 
    holding the Control Stick to your right).
    -Be sure to dodge the police cars for they will slow you down and
    Sonic will zoom right passed you! Be sure to head into
    the left tunnel when the intersection comes or you may find
    yourself in the midst of many more police cars if you fail to
    do so.
    -Once you reach the curve, be sure to perform an Air Slide to
    get a bit of Speed that will help you tackle the corner. After
    tackling the corner, though, be sure to Dash along the 
    straightaway to zoom right passed Sonic. 
    -As the big jump approaches, be sure to hold down the A Button 
    and release it at the right moment to go flying overhead, and 
    onto a higher platform that will press you into the lead for 
    sure!
    
    ******** Red Canyon ********  
    
                  Intro              
    
    Wave barges into a conversation Sonic and the others are having
    about Dr. Eggman and, unbeknownst to her, the Babylon Rouges. 
    In her mind, to herself, Wave suspects Tails may actually pose as
    a threat to the Babylon Rouges so she plans to discourage him
    with harsh words. But, what Wave wasn't counting on was the Amy
    factor!
    
                   Race           
    
    Mission: Defeat Amy! (Come in 1st Place!)
    Designated Character: Wave
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Analysis:
    Quite easy, actually. The robots may prove more of a threat than 
    Amy, herself! Be sure to use your Flight-Type skills to your 
    advantage. Since Amy can't utilize the Accelerators, you are at
    a distinct advantage in this race.

                  Intro              
    
    Knuckles has just beaten Storm in a race and he's ticked off!
    Storm asks Jet to give him another chance and Jet gives him
    a mission to explore Eggman's Base for anything suspicious as
    he suspects Eggman be more a foe than a friend.
    
                   Race
    
    Mission: Leave Eggman Robo behind you!
    Designated Character: Storm
    Difficulty: 7/10
    
    Analysis:
    Production of robots has stopped in Eggman's base. Now, the 
    robots are ready to protect the base from intruders. However,
    with the core of the base now frozen along with the rest of the
    track, will you be able to maneuver through the frosted track
    without 'slipping up'? Don't let this happen by coming in
    1st Place ahead of Eggman's robots.
    
    ******** White Cave ********
    
                  Intro
    
    Jet has decided to take a little breather in the jungle but his
    nap is interrupted whne he overhears Sonic practicing for the 
    next competition. Jet decided to have a little fun by ignoring
    Wave's lecture about responisibility and instead, challenge 
    Sonic to another race. 
    
                   Race
    
    Mission: Finish in 1st Place!
    Designated Character: Jet
    Difficulty: 9/10
    
    Analysis:
    This level may have you playing for quite a while, actually.
    The computers will almost always get the "Spider Web" shortcut
    which raises the pressure for you to do so as well in order for
    you to come out on top. Be sure not to get lost in the jungle
    and use the shortcut of Spider Webs to your advantage.
    
    
    ******** Dark Desert ********
    
                  Intro
    
    Jet has finally arrived at the scene of the final race of
    the EX World Grand Prix, but so have Sonic, Tails and Knuckles.
    Sonic sets the stage by challenging Jet to see if he can win
    the EX World Grand Prix. Who will win the EX World Grand Prix?
     
                  Race
    
    Mission: Win the World Grand Prix!
    Designated Character: Jet
    Difficulty: 8/10
    
    Analysis:
    You are lonesome and you must face Sonic, Knuckles AND Tails
    in an attempt to win the final race of the EX World Grand Prix,
    but, will your Gear measure up to the Gear of the Heroes? Only
    time will tell...
    
    
    ******** Sky Road ********
    
    
                  Intro
    
    Wave and Storm arrive on the scene and they have a small
    encounter with Knuckles and Tails but as they do, a bunch
    of robots enter the scene, charging at them. As Wave scolds
    Knuckles, both teams are off to head for the doors of Babylon
    before the other whilst also getting ahead of the pursuing 
    robots. 
    
                  Race
    
    Mission: Run from Eggman Robo! (Finish in 1st Place!)
    Designated Character: Wave
    Difficulty: 10/10
    
    Analysis:
    Definitely the hardest mission in the game. You will spend 
    quite a while here so don't expect to get it on your first try.
    You MUST come in 1st place to win which is easier said than 
    done...
    
    
    ******** Babylon Guardian ********
    
                 Intro
    
    Jet utilizes his Control Box in front of the Babylon Garden
    doors after snatching it from Sonic who willingly hands it over.
    As they enter, another set of doors open and as they begin to 
    enter it, the doors begin to close. Team Hero arrives on the 
    scene after hearing the mysterious figure being awakened and
    they make it inside the doors just in time before they close.
    However, as they do, the guardian of the Treasure of Babylon
    makes his entrance - a massive purple genie. Sonic and the
    others know that they are now in a fight they must win. With
    all disputes aside, they must unite to defeat the guardian
    who weilds the Treasure of Babylon.
    
                  Race
    
    Mission: Beat the Guardian!
    Designated Character: Sonic
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Analysis: 
    The final boss of the game. A genie that holds the treasure
    of Babylon in his possession. The final battle in which both
    teams must unite to retrieve the treasure of Babylon from the
    guardian genie.
    
    Strategies:
    -Continously dash and dodge the Guardian's attacks
    -Be sure to get rings and do tricks to get Air regularly so
    you aren't at a disadvantage since there are no Pits in the 
    level
    -Catch up to and collide into the magic lamp that the genie
    appear out of to damage one of his three lives. To catch up
    with him, you must dash into him. Once you do so, the scenary 
    will change for the remaining lap so stay on your toes!
    -Be sure to grind the rails once the opportunity presents itself
    when the scenary changes. This can help you gain air, speed, as
    well as help you to catch up to the guardian again.
    -After three collisions, he'll be knocked out. 
    -Be sure to ride the Turbulence of your opponents as well as
    performing tricks whilst riding to build air and speed that will
    help you catch up with the Guardian 
    
                Post-Race
    
    The genie has now been eliminated and the treasure descends
    down to the floor in front of both Team Hero and the Babylon
    Rouges. They eagerly anticipate what they will uncover in 
    the chest but as they are about to enjoy their treasure, Eggman
    pulls out a couple of guns and points them at everyone. Eggman
    orders everyone to step away from the treasure but once he sees
    it, he is in so much shock, he faints and falls to the ground
    (o-kay...). Tails and the others notice that the material of this
    legendary carpet is the same that is used in the Extreme Gear 
    they have been utilizing for the EX World Grand Prix. 
    
    ******** Story Mode Ending ********
    
    Sonic and the others are now all assembled near the Ruins, 
    looking at the sunset over Babylon Garden. Jet states
    that he will leave Babylon Garden alone and may possibly 
    return someday. However, Jet promises that one day, Sonic will
    face him again. Sonic states he'll be waiting. (There sure is a
    long line: Shadow, Metal Sonic from Heroes, Dr. Eggman - as 
    usual - and now Jet?) The two perform one final trick as they 
    cross paths with each other and both teams leave the scene of
    the Babylon Garden.

    "Junks" (Is that proper grammar?)
    This section lists all of the junk you've collected throughout
    your missions. The junk includes colors ranging from Green, 
    Yellow, Red, Blue, and Black which all can be used to repair
    the Gear above. Remember, you will have junk left over after
    you repair all Gear. My left over junk amounts to:
    
    Green x 50
    Yellow x 82
    Red x 49
    Blue x 96
    Black x 63
    
    Be sure to collect as much junk as possible so you can repair 
    the above Gear ASAP.
    
    
    ******** Repair Manual Locations ******** 
    
    In order to repair the Gear, you'll need to discover the Manual
    telling you how much junk is needed for the repair of each Gear.
    
    You will find them in the following Missions in Storm's schedule:
    
    #1: Fastest
    Splash Canyon - Mission 5
    Found along the 7th rail you must grind near the waterfall.
    
    #2: Turbo Star 
    Green Cave - Mission 5
    You can find it floating in the air between Ring 29 and Ring 30. 
    
    #3: Powerful Gear 
    Babylon Garden - Mission 5
    After riding the Jet Fighter, keep grinding the rails after the 
    second rail and you'll notice it along the 3rd, 4th, or 5th rail.
    
    #4: Legend 
    SEGA CARNIVAL - Mission 5
    You can find it floating in the air between Ring 25 and Ring 26. 
    
    
    Be sure to grab them so you can repair the above gear!
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    8. Survival Mode
    Compete under set rules.
    
    *** Be advised that when choosing a character, only their Default
    Gear will be accessible. Remember, you can't use Super Sonic in
    Any other mode than Normal Race.
    
    
                           Race Stage
    Get the Chaos Emerald and pass through gates while carrying 
               it within a time limit to score.
    
    
    ******** Rules ********
    
    The objective of this mode is to, first of all, reach the one
    and only Chaos Emerald hidden somewhere along the track - usually
    near the beginning - and the person in possession of it must
    carry it through a set number of Gates set up along the track
    before other opponents do. Be advised that only the central
    part of the track will be available so shortcuts as well as Type 
    Skills will be disabled in this mode. 
    
    Be sure to pay attention to the Character Map on your bottom left
    which shows the relative positions of each character to the Chaos
    Emerald. The number of gates each character has passed through with
    the Chaos Emerald appears on the side of the map. Be sure to
    use this radar to your advantage to avoid being overtaken by
    other opponents, thus, resulting in loss of possession of the Emerald.
    This will also occur if opponents successfully attack you! Watch
    your back!
    
    
    ******** Characters ********
    
    
    Since Type Skills are disabled in this mode, the character 
    you choose probably will not effect your gameplay. However,
    keep in mind that since there are no rings on the tracks in
    this mode, every character will be at Level 2 so everyone's
    Speed, Limit and Dash will be similar. Also, the maximum amount
    of Air a Gear can hold is identical for all characters also.
    Simply put, choose your favourite character! The only potential
    characters you may need to be aware of are Shadow and Dr.
    Eggman, since they don't use Boards for their Default Gear. 
    However, they are both still pretty fast. Simply put, choose 
    characters that have good Dash as well as Limit for these
    skills will help you to catch up to your opponents who may
    be in possession of the Emerald. Otherwise, choose anyone you 
    feel comfortable with and let the riding begin!
    
    
    ******** Items ********
    
    
    The items found within Survival Race are as follows:
    
    
    High Speed - Sudden boost in speed.
    Speed Down - Slows you down to a crawl.
    Question Item - Contains a mystery Power-Up Item.
    Explosion - Launches a bomb at players ahead knocking them off balance.
    
    
    Most of the time, for me, Speed Down appears to come more often than
    not so sometimes it may be best to avoid the Item Boxes altogether
    especially when you're in possession of the Emerald...
    
    
    ******** Tips ********
    
    Some general tips for this part of the game are as follows:
    
    -Remember, shortcuts as well as Type-Skills are disabled so when
    doing tricks, try to perform Twists more often than Back/Front 
    Flips.
    -Keep in mind that air decreases in your Air Tank when you are in
    possession of the Emerald. Use your Air wisely!
    -All other characters have maximum air and they will never lose
    it in small increments unlike the person in possession of the
    Emerald. Dashing can also be done continuously because of this.
    -If you are trying to catch up with the player in possession of
    the Emerald, try performing tricks and try to Dash as many times
    as possible to give yourself an advantage over the character 
    possessing the Chaos Emerald.
    -Be careful when doing tricks when in possession of the Emerald.
    Failure to land correctly will result in a loss of air as well
    as the given opportunity to other opponents to catch up to you.
    -If you're in possession of the Emerald, remember that you will
    refill 30 Air for every gate you pass so use your Air wisely!
    -Try to corner with the best of your ability without using Air
    Slides as much as possible, when in possession of the Emerald.
    Simply because this decreases your Air at a much faster rate 
    and opponents can easily overtake you at this time.

    ******** Rules ********
    
    The objective of this mode is to move around a selected arena, 
    in an attempt to attack your opponents until only one remains.
    Controls are identical as they are in the other race modes, and each
    player will start off with three lives, losing one as he/she
    takes on damage from the attack of an opponent. 
    
    Be sure, also to look on the map for Power-Ups that appear on-course 
    that will help you to either defeat your enemies quicker or help you 
    dodge them to be the last one standing!
    
    
    ******** Characters ********
    
    Choosing a character may have a minor factor as to how you 
    fare in this mode. It all depends on the character. Follow
    this advice carefully if you want to be successful in Battle.
    
    I will rate the following characters under the following 
    categories:
    
    Power - How easily they can deliver their own attack.
    Cornering - How good they are at cornering.
    Evasion - How easily they can dodge attacks from opponents.

    ******** Items ********
    
    The items found within Survival Race are not the same as the
    ones you'd find in the other modes with the exception of the Air
    Item which will refill your Air Tank by 30. However, the rest are 
    as follows:
    
    Attack Group: Your attack power will increase, enabling you to

                    be able to travel around the arena more. Represented
                    by the colour YELLOW.

                 your opponents. Represented by the colour BLUE.

    Speed LVL 3 - Will increase your Speed by a lot.
    
    Special Group: Special items that enable you to become a dynamic
                   rider, enabling you to not only inflict more damage
                   upon your opponents, but also to protect against
                   attacks made by your opponents as well as enabling
                   you to acquire a faster speed. Represented by the 
                   colour WHITE.
    Egg - Will hatch a crow after about 20 seconds or so. Gives you Attack
          Power plus 3, increases your Guard, and increases Speed to LVL 3.
    
    
    ******** Arenas ********
    
    The three levels found within Survival Battle Mode are the
    following:
    
    Dual Towers: Take part in hardcore battling where you launch
                 attacks at each other.
    Snow Valley: Hide-and-seek battle where you launch attacks 
                 on the other players, taking care not to be found
                 by them.
    Space Theater: Blow-out battle where you bump out your rivals 
                  to do damage to them.
    
    
    Let's look at them one at a time, shall we?
    
                   Dual Towers   
                 Fun Factor: 4/5
                 Difficulty: 3/5
                   Design: 4/5
               Final Rating: 8/10
    
    Okay, there are a few things to remember when battling atop 
    this arena. First of all, the hazard that will be presented to
    you on this arena is that of crows. At certain points in the
    battle, giant black crows (hey, this reminds me of Billy Hatcher!)
    will begin to fly around the level, occasionally, swooping in
    down onto the level and utilizing their talons to damage opponents.
    Be sure to avoid them as much as possible as they can really 
    mess you up, enabling opponents to take advantage of you.
    
    There are two Air Pits found in the arena that you can use to
    refill your Air.
    
      -------------------------
     (    A T          T A     )
      -------------------------
    
    Think of the level like this for now although it is actually flipped
    sideways. "T" stands for the Two Towers and beside them are the
    Air Pits represented by "A".
    
                   Snow Valley
                 Fun Factor: 5/5
                 Difficulty: 3/5
                   Design: 5/5
               Final Rating: 9/10
    
    Watch out for the Egg Snowmen that will come out after a while, when
    the battle has gone on for a long time. They will appear in random
    areas and touching them alone will result in a loss of a life. Also,
    after a while, the snowmen may also begin to bounce around the level,
    which can also reduce your life points quickly as well so be careful
    and watch your surroundings.
    
    As for the Air Pits, there is only one, and it is situated at the 
    central glacier platform in the middle of the stage. You can't
    miss it!
    
    On rare occasions, a blue parka will appear somewhere on the stage.
    If you spot it, QUICKLY grab it. This will make you invisible,
    not only too opponents, but also to the radar! You can easily take
    advantage of this Special Item as it lasts for longer than 60 seconds.
    
                  Space Theater
                 Fun Factor: 5/5
                 Difficulty: 5/5
                   Design: 4/5
               Final Rating: 9/10
    
    Be ware of flying UFO's that will levitate platforms to reveal gaps 
    which after falling through will make you lose a life. If a UFO crashes 
    down on the stage, also, the surrounding platforms will be lit
    with a Red Glow temporarily and all the lit platforms will
    fall off the stage so it's imperative that you watch the 
    movements of the UFO's carefully.
    
    The Air Pit is in the very middle of the level. There is NO
    WAY you could possibly miss seeing it!
                   
    
    ******** Tips ********
    
    -All attacks are Level 2 attacks so use that knowledge to your 
    advantage
    when selecting characters.
    -You can only acquire two Power-Ups simultaneously.
    -You will lose all your acquired Power-Ups if you run out of air.
    -Make use of Braking, Dashing and Air Sliding to home in on your 
    opponents for attacks.
    -Try using Tornados to harm opponents on your tail. You could
    also, in effect, damage them twice, if you still have enough air,
    and by dashing into them. 
    -Never create Tornados when you have the Egg Item. Most likely, all 
    your 
    Air will disappear from your tank.
    -Try getting an Air Pack power-up, then, the Egg Item to
    ensure you have enough air but do so quick before someone else
    gets it.
    -Try braking to not fall for traps and/or run into dashes
    inadvertently from other opponents who are around the corner.
    -Try jumping to avoid dashes from other opponents.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    9. Tag Mode
    Partner up with another player and share Air as you compete
    in a race.
    
    ******** Rules ********
    In a nutshell, the rules are simple. Two characters team up and 
    must share an Air Tank as they try to get to the goal before the other
    team. Shortcuts and Type Skills are disabled in this mode, as 
    well, if you move to far ahead of your partner, you will be forced
    to stay back (you get zapped!) as you wait for them to 
    catch up. Be sure to stick close to your partner whilst also
    trying to attack the other team!
    
    ******** Tips ********
    -Use each other's Turbulence to dash through the track!
    -If you stay close to each other for about a second or two (when
    both character icons are in the middle of the tank), you will
    gain a bit of air!
    -Try attacking opponents to recover air.

    ******** Metal City ******** 
    
    Descriptor: Run through future expressways.
    
    Overview: The first stage of the EX World Grand Prix located in Future
    City. This district features numerous buildings, skyscrapers, 
    and highways with continuous, on-going traffic. Be sure to
    take to the high points of the city to surpass your opponents!
    
    Speed:
     (1) Rail found along the right-hand side after the traffic following
         the first Trick Zone.
     (2) The rail right after the first. 
     (3) Head into the left tunnel as opposed to the right tunnel and
         head up the half pipe on your left. With enough air, press A
         with the correct timing to grind the aloft rail.
    
    Power:
     (1) On-going traffic right after the first Trick Zone.
     (2) On-going traffic along the course in the right tunnel (as
         opposed to the one on the left).
     (3) The large truck obscuring a secret path.
     (4) More traffic along the path following the large truck.
     (5) Cars along the right and left sides of the path following
         the on-going traffic after the truck.
    
    Flight:
     (1) A runway is situated along the small straightaway after
         the first right curve after the first Trick Zone. 3 Accelerators
         are aloft following it.
     (2) Head up the half pipe to your right after the tunnel on
         the right (as opposed to the tunnel on the left) and with
         enough speed, you'll dash right into an Accelerator which will 
         lead you to two more following that.  
    
    Formation Advantage: Flight/Power
    
    Trick Zones: 
     (1) Right after the starting line. If you do a Front Flip,
         you'll be able to reach a higher road.
     (2) Right at the edge of the path leading from the path
         following the Flight Runway and the two upcoming tunnels.
     (3) The half-pipe on the left-hand side after the tunnel on
         the left.
     (4) The half-pipe on the right-hand side after the tunnel on
         the right.
     (5) The second-to-last ramp before the Automatic Trail. This
         leads back to the central part of the city. Perform a 
         Back Flip and you will be able to reach the final Trick
         Zone.
     (6) The very last Trick Zone. Use a Back Flip from the preceding
         Trick Zone to reach it. 
    
    Air Pits: 
     (1) On the left-hand side right before the first Trick Zone (after
         the starting line).
     (2) Right at the ledge that leads to a drop whereby there is oncoming
         traffic.
    
    100-Ring Capsule: 
     - Reach the higher road from the first Trick Zone and jump with
       correct timing onto the first orange sign which will propel 
       you right into the 100-Ring Capsule.
    
    
    ******** Night Chase ******** 
    
    Descriptor: Run through express ways at night.
    
    Overview: Babylon's first stage. Join in the race of the EX World
    Grand Prix in Future City except at night where police cars
    are patrolling the area. Be sure to watch where you're riding.
    
    Speed:
     (1) Rail found along the far-left path after the first Trick Zone.
     (2) Rail to the right of the first rail (near the end of the first
         rail). You must jump off the first rail, hold Right on the
         Control Stick and press A again to reach it.
     (3) Head into the right tunnel as opposed to the left tunnel and
         head towards the large truck. If you hold A and release as
         soon as you reach the edge of the ramp leading inside the
         truck, you'll jump right over the truck and you'll be able to
         grind on an aloft rail.
     (4) The rail right after the above one.
    
    Power:
     (1) Energy...things along the far-right path after the first Trick
         Zone.
     (2) On-going traffic of Police Cars right after the first curve
         after the first Trick Zone.
     (3) More traffic of Police Cars leading into the left tunnel.
     (4) More traffic of Police Cars leading into the left tunnel.
     (5) On-going traffic in the middle of the path a few meters after
         the two tunnels.
     (6) A large truck along the right after the right tunnel.
     (7) On-going traffic in the middle of the path a few meters after
         the large truck.
    
    Flight:
     (1) A runway in the middle of the path right after the first Trick
         Zone. Honestly, though, it is very hard to reach because of the
         pipes. It's not even a worthwhile shortcut anyhow.
     (2) Head up the half pipe to your right after the tunnel on
         the right (as opposed to the tunnel on the left) and with
         enough speed, you'll dash right into an Accelerator which will 
         lead you to two more following that.  
    
    Formation Advantage: Power
    
    Trick Zones:
     (1) Right after the starting line. I think that if you do either
         a Back Flip OR a Front Flip you'll make it, however, timing
         is quite crucial for this shortcut. You could miss it by
         a small margin.
     (2) The half-pipe on the left-hand side after the tunnel on
         the left.
     (3) The half-pipe on the right-hand side after the tunnel on
         the right.
     (4) The second-to-last ramp before the Automatic Trail. This
         leads back to the central part of the city. Perform a 
         Back Flip and you will be able to reach the final Trick
         Zone.
     (5) The very last Trick Zone. Use a Back Flip from the preceding
         Trick Zone to reach it. 
    
    Air Pits: 
     (1) Along the far-left path after the first Trick Zone.
     (2) Along the path where the patrolling Police Cars exit from. There
         is one on each side.

       First ledge after the starting line. You'll have to wait a second to
       Get it. If you turn around, you can see it clearly.
     - It's better to NOT go for the 100-ring capsule. Instead, head up the
       Path above the ledge after the starting line. There are two item 
       boxes that contain two 20-ring and/or 30-ring rewards. You can level
       up much faster this way than going for the 100-Ring Capsule.

    level, making sure to use good use of Type-Skills whilst jet
    fighters are ready to protect the Garden from intruders. Explosions
    on the track will also occur so watch out. Be sure to get a lot of

    ******** Babylon Guardian ******** 
    
    Descriptor: Fight against the guardian god of Babylon.
    
    Overview: The final boss of the game and my least favourite stage.
    The layout is pretty simple and all you have to do is eliminate the 
    boss by attacking him once every lap (if you set it to one lap, then 
    he'll only have one health; set it to more and he'll still have only 3 
    but you must still roam around the track).
    
    Speed:
     (1) Rail right before the final corner leading to the finish line.
    Power:
    (1)	Some statues/rocks (depending on which dimension you're in) that 
    lie along the right and left side of the path right before the 
    final corner leading to the finish line.
    
    Flight:
    (1)	Perform a Back flip to the right of the first ramp to land into 
    the airborne Accelerator and soar through 3 airborne Accelerators 
    that will lead you away from and then back down to the main path
    
    Formation Advantage: Speed/Power/Flight
    
    Trick Zones: 
    (1)	The first of two ramps. Right after the first corner.
    (2)	The second ramp in the stage. Right before the finish line. 
    Perform sideways tricks to land down to the drop sooner.
    
    Air Pits: Along the sides of the track - they're hard to miss since the 
    stage is fairly linear.
    
    100-Ring Capsule:
     - None; there are no rings period in this stage
    
    ******** SEGA Carnival ******** 
    
    Descriptor: Carnival course with a SEGA theme.
    
    Overview: The best course ever! A fair that plays homage to such games 
    as Samba de Amigo, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg (complete with 
    cameos from the Captain from Pirate Ocean, Chick, and Billy Hatcher 
    himself), Super Monkey Ball, and to top it all off, a Crazy Taxi 
    section, complete with a taxi with Axel himself serving as a cameo.
    
    Speed:
    (1)	Right at the start, jump off the ledge and perform a Front flip or   
    two and land yourself atop the rail. There is a gap as it reaches 
    where the path is so you must jump again to reach the 2nd rail.
    (2)	After heading inside the captain's ship, head to the left where 
    there is a side rail and use it to gain air to reach a rail that
    will lead you outside of the pirate ship.
    
    Power:
    (1)	Two special doors in the Samba de Amigo section can be knocked 
    Down.
    (2)	There is a door inside the captain's ship from Billy Hatcher that
    can also be knocked down. Barrels appear behind it to add links.
    (3)	More barrels appear in the Monkey Ball section on the platforms.
    (4)	Crates that can be found in the area right after the taxi section
    can be broken and can grant you up to 12 links.
    
    Flight:
    (1)	After heading inside the captain's ship, head to the left where 
    there is a side rail and use it to gain air to reach an 
    Accelerator that will lead you to the top of the pirate ship.
    (2)	The ledge right before the Monkey Ball area begins, perform a
    Front flip to reach the Accelerator in the air.
    
    Formation Advantage: Power
    
    Trick Zones:
     (1) You can perform tricks on the ledge shortly after the start line.
    (3)	Head on top of the Pirate Ship by way of using someone's 
    turbulence along the curve in the Samba de Amigo section
    to reach a secret trick area that also has the Air Refill capsule.
    (4)	A large gap between the Samba de Amigo section and the Billy 
    Hatcher area. Use a Front flip to get to the top of the Pirate 
    Ship which is much quicker than the bottom route.
    (5)	The ledge right before the Monkey Ball area begins.
    (6)	At the end of each suspended platform, there's a ledge for you to 
    perform tricks.
    (7)	The net at the bottom can be used to perform tricks once you reach 
    the height of it.
    (8)	The ledge right before the drop leading to the road where the 
    Crazy Taxi area continues.
    (9)	A ramp that can lead you to a higher route (with a Backflip) or 
    the lower route. Head up the higher route if you can.
    
    Air Pits: ???
    
    100-Ring Capsule:
     - Unknown
     - Passing the gates in the Monkey Ball section earns you rings. You'll
       earn 30 on the last lap and 20 on the other two.
    
    ******** SEGA Illusion ******** 
    
    Descriptor: Illusion course with a SEGA theme. 
    
    Overview: An amazing course that acts like a fair, showing off such 
    characters as Opa Opa, as well as environments from NiGHTS Into Dreams,
    Space Channel 5 and even a special homage to ChuChu Rocket at the end.
    
    Speed:
    Power:
    Flight:
    
    Formation Advantage: Flight/Speed
    
    Trick Zones:
    Air Pits:
    100-Ring Capsule:
     - Along the gold panel to the left in the ChuChu Rocket section. 
    You'll need to jump over two panels to get it.
     - Not to be confused with the gold panel straight ahead which leads to 
    an Air Refill capsule.
    
    
    
    I hope these strategies will help you be victorious!

    16. FAQ
    
    Q: Are you done the game?
    A: As of March 9th 2006, I have unlocked all characters, and all Gear, 
    as well as all stages. So, I guess you could say, yeah, I'm
    totally done! And I was really obsessed with getting the game: bought
    it on the 22nd when it came out here in Canada.
    
    Q: How many hours of (pure) playtime have you racked up?
    A: Nearly 300 hours. 
    
    Q: How is Super Sonic?
    A: Personally, I find that he can be both good and bad. I tend 
    to not use him that much, though. As for advantages, he has the
    best Dash and Limit, as well, he is invulnerable to opponents'
    attacks. As for disadvantages, one boost requires 20 Rings, if
    he loses all his rings; he resorts back to Sonic and you must run
    until you get a ring; performing tricks does not recover any rings
    nor does rotating the control stick on Automatic Trails. Overall,
    though, he's pretty good. But, it would have been better if HE 
    could be unlocked after 50 hours of play time as opposed to
    E-10000R! Another thing, Super Sonic is a master at the Babylon 
    Guardian stage. Use this knowledge to your advantage.
    
    Q: How would you rate yourself in terms of skill?
    A: Well, from skill levels from Beginner, to Intermediate, to
    Advanced, to Expert, to Master; I'd probably rate myself either 
    Expert or Master. But that's just me.
    
    Q: Is it true a Sonic Riders 2 is being developed as of this moment?
    A: It certainly is NOT a rumor; this is official - Sonic Riders 2
    is coming out; as for if it is being developed RIGHT NOW, I am
    uncertain. The game will, apparently, appear on next-gen consoles.
    Edit: May 2007 revisit: I'm confident that this or next year,
    we'll hear something. I REALLY hope they put it on the Wii.
    
    Q: I don't recognize some of the games from the SEGA Carnival. What
    are each of the cameos?
    A: The following are the cameos/games that are part of the 
    Carnival, in order that you see them in the level:
     -Samba de Amigo
       (Dreamcast, 2000)
     -Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg
       (Gamecube, 2003)
     -NiGHTS Into Dreams
       (Saturn, 1996)
     -Super Monkey Ball
       (Gamecube, 2001)
     -Crazy Taxi
       (Dreamcast, 2000)
     -Space Channel 5
       (Dreamcast, 2000)
     -ChuChu Rocket 
       (Dreamcast, 1999)
    
    Q: Would you consider this the best Sonic game made?
    A: What's with all the personal questions? Anyway, I feel
    it is the best GAMECUBE Sonic game, but as for the best Sonic
    game ever made, it comes close but to me, another Sonic game
    precedes it.
    
    Q: Which is better? Sonic and the Secret Rings or Sonic Riders?
    A: Riders, no doubt about that. 
    
    Q: Which gear is the biggest waste of rings?
    A: Definitely, the Hovercraft!
    
    Q: What is your favourite Character/Gear combination?
    A: I use High Booster a lot now for aiming for good records but I like 
    to challenge myself and see how good I can be with only the Default 
    gear.
    
    Q: Can you play Story Mode again after completing it?
    A: Yes, you can play it as many times as you like.
    
    Q: Are there Japanese voiceovers in the game?
    A: Well, the credits state positions of "Japanese Voicing", so
    I am assuming there is. I have heard, though, that only the
    Xbox and PS2 Versions acquire this feature, but I am not aware
    if this is confirmed or not so don't quote me on this.
    
    Q: Hey! Is it true about what Gamer.TV said about that....
    A: No! It is not true! This was a lie in order to raise false
    hopes. I'm sorry you succumbed to this.
    
    Q: What's your favourite stage?
    A: SEGA Carnival no doubt! It's like a Green Hill stage, that's how 
    much I like it. But, recently, I unlocked the Green Hill re-make in 
    Sa2B and I really like that stage as well (in comparison, I like the 
    Carnival better). Other favorites are Egg/Ice Factory as well as 
    Splash/Red Canyon, Sky Road and SEGA Illusion.
    
    Q: Which stage has the catchiest music?
    A: Splash Canyon and Metal City. I slowly enjoyed the Digital Dimension 
    theme as well but only when I'm not playing the game. I can't stand 
    that stage for some reason... SEGA Carnival's music is good too.
    
    Q: What is your favourite mode? 
    A: I really like Survival Mode. I certainly like Battle more than
    Race, though, but on its own, Race is pretty good.
    
    Q: What is your least favourite mode?
    A: I'd have to say Tag Mode, and the worst part is, I think it's
    quite fun! It's so hard to choose between all of them I guess. 
    
    Q: Who are the secret SEGA characters?
    A: Ulala, NiGHTS, and Aiai.
    
    Q: Who is your favorite character?
    A: I guess: 
    - Speed: Shadow
    - Power: Aiai
    - Flight: Tails
    - Style: Knuckles (:P)
    - Overall: Aiai
    
    Q: Is there a point to the game after you complete it?
    A: Yes, there is. Face your friends to determine who's the best
    rider, and you can also try to acquire a bit of bragging rights
    in Time Attack, Free Race, and World Grand Prix. Also, Survival
    Mode is quite fun IMO, contrary to the popular belief that it is
    "boring". Head on over to The Sonic Center and compete for World 
    Records. That will add LOADS of replay value to your game, I'm sure.

    Q: Are there really allusions to past Sonic games in this game as
    one interview with the producer stated, with the exception of
    SEGA Carnival?
    A: Well, the Carnival pretty much has the MAIN allusions and cameo
    appearances but there are other things. For instance:
    
     "Some things never change, huh?"    --Jet
       This could allude back to Sonic Heroes when Shadow said
       similar words to Rouge and the end of the Team Dark story.
    
     The song "Eggman Again!" has beats that sound like they were remixed
     from the Robot Carnival/Storm theme from Sonic Heroes.
    
     It has been said that the design on the side of the High Booster
     Gear alludes to the logo for (the) Shadow the Hedgehog (game).
    
     "Do you think you can beat me?"     --Eggman
     "Ha ha ha! How's that?"             --Eggman
    
       These are both two quotes that refer back to SA2:B where Dr. Eggman,
       in 2P Battle Mode, uttered these words both at the end and the start
       of a 'Shooting Battle' game.
    
     "Hey! Ladies first!"                --Rouge
       This quote was uttered by Rouge in Sonic Heroes when participating 
       in the 'Bobsled Race' game.
    
    Other than those few things and the Carnival, the game has no other
    allusions to past games and/or characters. So, enjoy the Carnival
    for it's a great inclusion in the game!
    
    Q: Can you work on a guide with me?
    A: Sure, I'd love to, just email me and let me know the specifics. It 
    just depends on the game, that's all.
    
    Q: Can I work on this guide with you? Pretty please!!!
    A: Well, you can certainly contribute comments to my guide to help me
    improve it but I'd like to keep this as an individual project. Sorry, 
    but thanks in advance.
    
    Q: Can you help me with Mission ____ in _______ Missions? I'm having
    trouble!
    A: I am trying my best to update the Mission Mode section but I've 
    chosen to leave it for last as it'll take up most of my time on this 
    guide. But, if you need urgent help, email me and I'll try my best to 
    help you as many have done.
    
    Q: How can I show my appreciation/hate for your guide?
    A: Simply by rating it here on GameFAQS so I can know if I'm doing a 
    good job on this guide.
