Zero Gravity takes all the complex elements of Sonic Riders and, instead of improving on them, mostly just gets rid of them. Their air gauge is gone, instead replaced by a gravity meter, while preparing for a jump has been changed to pressing the jump button at the last possible moment.
While I can see why some people would hate these changes, I personally found Zero Gravity much nicer to play, with some good track design (although there was one I hated, Crimson Crater) and surprisingly good graphics for the Wii, especially the water-based level. The story, while extremely short, has a more interesting story, plus some really nice cutscenes.
While I did enjoy this more than the first Sonic Riders, it also feels a bit too “safe”, and is a less interesting game overall. It’s just another mascot racing game, while the first game tried to be unique.
