Product Description

Platform: Nintendo DS

Get behind the driver's seat with this Speed Racer based on the Wachowski Brothers film with its garage of combat-ready rides and see how you fare in "car-fu style" action. 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. The film itself is based on the classic series created by anime pioneer Tatsuo Yoshida. A live-action family adventure, Speed Racer follows the young racecar driver Speed in his quest for glory on and off the track in his thundering Mach 5. Choose between three different variations of the Mach 5, each one equipped with several gadgets that are unique to the car like grip tires, rotary saws, a periscope, a deflector, and auto jacks. All of the gadgets have a specific purpose. The rotary saws are used to cut down any trees that get in the way. By activating the auto jacks, the Mach 5 can jump over obstacles to discover shortcuts. Discovering the shortcuts is the key to getting the fastest times on all three tracks and mastering the Normal and Endurance modes. If you play the game well enough, you will be able to unlock new vehicles, including Racer X. Get behind the wheel and go, SPEED RACER, go!

I went into 'Speed Racer' with no real expectations. I had heard that the Wii version was fun but I had not seen anything about the DS version. I have to say I have been very impressed.

Thankfully the game does not try and recreate the movie but instead focuses on the racing by setting the game after the events of the movie. There are no movie spoilers in the game except for driver names/cars and track locations.

'Speed Racer: The Videogame' is the rare movie tie in game that is actually well done. I was a little worried that a high speed racer on the DS, based off the loose and chaotic racing seen in the movie, would be impossible but thanks to some great design choices by the developer this game really shines as the fastest racer on the DS. You really feel like your going 300 mph while wiping around curves and taking jumps. On top of that, the boost feature is really well done. It is set up in such a away that conservation is rewarded with a "zone" moment where the track in essence straightens out for you and you just blaze by your opponents. Since you can't use this feature all the time it does not become unfair but instead a strategic item that can be used to move up in rank or to make it though a particularly difficult area. The name of the game is "Speed Racer" and you most certainly get the speed part.

The game is fast but that is only a part of the game. As fast as the game is, it still controls well once you get a handle for the drifting. Unlike some other "extreme" racing games 'Speed Racer' does not have an energy bar. You can hit as many walls as you like and not suffer an explosive demise. That said, you will do much better if you avoid the walls and that is where drifting come to play.

This is one video game that is child friendly or for those tech game challenged. My 5 yr old loves it. No matter what he does he doesnt die, the game just keeps him playing.

Go Speed Racer Go! Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I'm a copier! I had ordered this game on AMAZON and got it for 20 bucks, and I'm glad it was only 20! It is well worth the money, if it was 28 or more I would've questioned the AMAZON Sellers, but they did a great job grouping the price together and it paid off. OK, enough of that junk! Now onto the game. As another reviewere mentioned The music and the menu aren't spectacular but aren't to annoying or hard to hear\listen to. The graphics are unbeleivable and give great credit to the makers of SPEED RACER THE VIDEOGAME. If only they spent a couple more days on making it, it would've been perfect. You can play multiplayer(I don't do that, and as the same reviewer said you have to have multiple catrs, and the back of the game case says that it can be played from 1-6 players), arcade(Single race, Battle(Trying to complete certain tricks and events in a limited time), and a few others.) Also you can play WRL(WORLD RACING LEAGUE) in which you play at 3 different tracks, and by doing tricks, jumps, and stunts, you can gain more fans(With how many jumps, tricks, and stunts you do you gain more and more fans, and the more and more fans you get, you get to unlock different racers, tracks, events, and paint jobs) with it(You can't get fans to unlock things when you play single player quick race)and also you can read tutorials if you are lost(or look at the instruction booklet) and it will tell you how do do things. Here are the pros and cons:

Cons: Tracks look simlair(as another had said) and the music\menu aren't wow-outta-your-seats-like but they aren't horrid.

I was looking for a racing game on the Nintendo DS platform and this game is very exciting. Graphics are very good, and you get the effect of actually driving at super high speeds. I actually had the sensation like I was driving faster in this game than the F-Zero on Nintendo 64 and SNES. You drive through tunnels, jump ramps and do various stunts while racing. The sound effects are very good even though the music is not too exciting.

There are only up to 5 competitors which is a little disappointing since I like more 'traffic' on the road. The speed bursts are fun and the special effects add more of a thrill to gameplay.

Gameplay is entirely through the buttons and keypad. You don't use the touch screen for gameplay. Controls are simple to learn although there is a slight learning curve "Car-Fu". The physics are realistic (you can even 'drift'), despite the fact that you don't sustain damage to your vehicle. You have the option of competing on 3 levels of difficulty, and playing by a race or 'career' mode. As you advance, you unlock more drivers and courses. The artificial intelligence of your competition is quite challenging.

This is a very entertaining game and it satisfies my 'need for speed'.
