Classic Arcade Gaming Meets Virtual Reality

At Sega Joypolis, there are already tons of virtual reality themed games that fans from all parts of the globe flock to. You won't find very many classic arcade machines here, but there are plenty of references to titles that set the stage for modern gaming. This theme park arcade hybrid offers dozens of action oriented game. What's more is that Sega Joyopolis is almost entirely comprised of interactive arcade games and mini-rides.

All real fans of Sonic the Hedgehog have played one of its creative sequels. From the introduction of Knuckles to Metal Sonic, there have been many changes and addition to the storyline. In all Sonic the Hedgehog games, the main character is celebrated for his super speed. For the first time, gamers will be able to assume the role of Sonic and simulate his movements.

In Sonic Athletics, participants must run, jog and jump in order to win against their opponents. There are three main events in Sonic Athletics, and they all requirement exceptional physical ability. The game supports up to eight player game play. Eight separate treadmill-like gaming stations are lined up within a sport area themed enclosure. As long as you are able to race on the treadmill faster than your fellow players, you will always be on top.

Sonic Athletics makes a suitable new addition to Sega Joyopolis, mainly because there aren't any other Sonic the Hedgehog games. While you might be used to hitting the action key in order to make Sonic move, this particular title follows the trend of interactive consoles such as the Nintendo Wii. So far, there aren't any other copies of Sonic Athletics available outside of Japan. A single turn costs a little more than $5, so its best to be in tip top condition before planning a trip out to the land of the Rising Sun.

Although high tech arcade games are becoming more and more common, the demand for classic arcade machines still continues to grow. An older model sonic arcade game may only allow two people to play at a time, but it does offer fans a recreational and relaxed entertainment experience.
