Video Game: Sonic R

Sonic R is a racing game staring the spiky blue speed demon and his friends, developed by Travellers Tales (who also made Sonic 3D Blast) and released in 1997 for the Sega Saturn and later for the PC. In 2005, it was re-released on the Nintendo GameCube and PlayStation 2 as part of Sonic Gems Collection, which is based the PC version of the game. It was also made available for download on GameTap for a short time in 2007.

Known for its power pop musical track by Richard Jaques and songs performed by British singer TJ Davis. Notable in the fact that the PC and Saturn versions of the game could be played in any standard CD player, in case you wanted to listen to the music without having to play the actual game.

This game is also notable for being the last Sonic the Hedgehog game to use the "classic" designs for all the characters, and is the only fully-3D console game to do so (Sonic Jam had only a small section in 3D).

Compare with Sonic Drift, Sonic Riders and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.
