Summary: When I first got this game as a gift, I thought it would be terrible. I was as wrong as I'll ever be. This is honestly one of the best games I've played ever. After about a week or two, or at least until you know the controls, it is an amazing game. The fact that you're both trying to race and not get killed at the same time is phenomenal. This game is worth WAY more than $5.
Summary: this game is amazing because you can hit people and have them blow up. It is a neat game also b/c you go up to 500 mph. This game is fun for kid gamers and i think anyone who thinks speed racer is awesome
Summary: Speed Racer is not a great game. It's basically a bunch of people going around and killing other people with cars. NOT FUN. The instructions don't tell you how to do any of the stunts so I never really got to enjoy it. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME.
Summary: this game is amazing and is fun but when you get to the big championships and class 2 it gets a little hard and the disc is scratched but thats not a major problem (for you). this game is amazing and they really like and they really did good with people you can have an ally with somebody.
Summary: This was way more fun than I had anticipated. I borrowed it from a friend and am purchasing it from Gamestop right now. The game uses the wii remote in a way no other non-nintendo game has. Remember when you used to play racing games on the NES? I would twist and turn the game pad this way and that, or jerk it one direction or another. Well, that is how you play Speed Racer. Jerk left and you knock the guy to your left off the track. Jerk the wiimote up and you jump.
Summary: I'm a huge fan of Speed Racer, the cartoon, and I love a good racing game. Still I was very worried about purchasing this title. The reason being is that I've owned a Wii since they hit the market, and until Mario Kart Wii, no one has been able to design a decent racer for the system. They have all had major control problems and they were not able to deliver the feel of speed that other systems have.
Conclusion: If you like mario kart you will love this its simpler than mariokart but just as fun the controls are pretty easy to pick up and youve just gotta love all the crazy tracks! It does get harder as you go through the campionship or you can just choose single race or play multiplayer. Overall i would say for Â£10 you cant go wrong its great value for money and this would make a great christmas present.
Excerpt: We enjoyed this so much I had to buy my hubby a copy for Christmas, fortunetely there are many good offers on for this at the moment. If you are competitive, love exotic race tracks and the impression of speed rent it, you wont regret it.
Conclusion: This game is a mix of Wipeout and Ridge Racer. The graphics are good rather than excellent (what you would expect of the Wii) but you can go at ridiculously fast speeds in the cars. Shame it doesn't have an online mode. Great game for the price but could have been developed a little more to make an excellent game!
