Excerpt: Players will be able to take on the role of the characters from the film, getting behind the wheels of each characters signature vehicles to experience firsthand the films high adrenaline, combative racing style.
Excerpt: When a game is based on a movie you have every right to feel wary in its presence, given the poor quality output of many licensed games. There’s exceptions though, where love has not only been shown for the game itself, but for the source material as well.
Summary: In Speed Racer, based on the upcoming film by the Wachowski brothers, where players will be able to take on the role of the characters from the film, getting behind the wheels of each character's signature vehicles to experience firsthand the film's high-adrenaline, combative racing style.
Excerpt: Reports are in and “Speed Racer” apparently isn't the incredible movie people thought it would be. Hype has a way of killing things like that. Now there's a video game, and at least with that expectations are more reasonable. It's license-based, after all.
Excerpt: This is one of the better movie spin-off games we have seen on the DS in a while. Great game play that will appeal to speed freaks, however the car combat aspects are under done and disappoint when compared to releases of this game on other platforms.
Pros: Some great looking graphics that deliver a real sense of speed. The controls are easy to pick up, and the game is fun to play.
Cons: Tutorial is not really a tutorial at all. The racing elements of the game try to make it to the front seat which should be occupied by combat instead.
