Excerpt: When it comes to the cornering, there's not much to it in Chocobo Racing. Pushing both the accelerate and brake buttons whilst turning allows you to drift. Tapping the brakes works effectively - holding them down not only runs the risk of spinning out but the turning circle is also wider. The Story Mode is told in a pop-up book fashion narrated by Cid, and it's a means of introducing the characters, special abilities, magic stones and courses in the game.
Pros: Vicki Bell - 'Diamonds In My Heart', custom racers
Cons: Not too skilful a racer, a bit start - stop, limited 2 - player options
Excerpt: This go-kart racing game from Square stars the popular mascot of the Final Fantasy series, Chocobo, and his friends. The gameplay is very similar to Mario Kart, with many power-ups, special abilites, and fantasy cartoon environments. At the beginning, there are eight characters to choose from and eight courses to race, with nearly as many secret characters and tracks to be unlocked. The five game modes are Story, Grand Prix, Time Attack, Versus, and Relay.
Excerpt: In the theme of Mario Kart comes Squares offering. A cute racer based on Square games. With characters from various games each with moves based on Square gamers. When described it doesn’t sound much but in reality it is quite a good game. The characters Specials can be mixed and matched leaving countless combinations and with Story, Grand Prix and Vs modes there is enough options to satisfy most. The gameplay is strong and fun, what you expect from a game of this sort.
Excerpt: Chocobo Racing is a solid addition from Square to the competitive genre of kart racing games. It isn't up to the lofty standards which have been set by Crash Team Racing and Mario Kart, but it still offers a lot of original ideas (some good, some otherwise) and a decent race. The lifespan of Chocobo Racing is a not a great one, despite the variety offered in the game. If you want all of the secret characters then Story Mode will have to completed ten times.
Excerpt: Chocobo Racing is a fun game. I decided to buy it because the idea came from Final Fantasy VII. (I enjoyed FF VII) Chocobo Racing is a fun game because you can have a two player game or a game in 'story mode' as a single player. In 'story mode' you can get new characters to join your team by racing them and winning. If you lose it does not matter: you can just retry the same race. It is fun for all ages.
