Sonic Riders: Off the Ground plays like most Sonic Riders games. There is the addition of the Board Customizier feature, which allows players to create stats and their own personal Extreme Gear/Bike via this mode. A new type of vechicle is the "Eggheads", which are some of Eggman's machines, and are varied by character (Example: Modern Sonic obtains the Egg Dragoon Bike, and Classic Tails gets the Drill Board). Also, there are 4 different sections of a racetrack. They include: Air, Land, Water, and Type. Type requires a specific type of board/bike to get through (Example: Tropical Treetops' Type section requires a Speed or Water board/bike).

Team Heroes

One night at Megalo Station, Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles are meeting with Team Retro to dicuss some weird things they've seen. Classic Sonic says that he saw some sort of UFO like thing hover down the tunnel, and that it might come back tonight. Just then the gang hears Team Rogues dashing down the tunnel. They plan to steal the Chaos Emeralds!
