4.0 out of 5 stars Speed Racer:The Videogame...... September 22, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Make no mistake about it, readers. Speed Racer: The Videogame is a fun and exciting game that captures the look and feel of the movie. It's the closest thing to an F-Zero game on the Playstation 2 as you're going to get. It's intense. It's challenging(boy, is it ever) and it's one of the best movie tie-in videogames I've seen thus far. You can race as Speed or over 15 other characters in races through amazing futuristic tracks featuring loops, corkscrews, jumps and more from the movie. Smash, jump, flip and spin with massive "car-fu" combat against your friends in multiplayer.

While I love this game, however, there are ways that I felt they could've improved the game. First off, they could've gave more story as to what happend with Speed Racer and company(friend or foe) at this year's races. Second, why no "Speed Racer" theme or music from the movie? That boring 'techno' music just doesn't cut it. Third(and perhaps most importantly), they could've had ways to improve your car's handling-steering-acceleration and speed(like in the Need for Speed or Gran Turismo games)so, if you wanted to finish a race without having to change a racer halfway through for a better car, you could.

Overall, Speed Racer: The Videogame is an excellent game despite the flaws I listed above. If they make a second game(which, in my opinion, I feel they won't due to a poor box-office run), maybe they can correct those mistakes.

They've got a Wii, Playstation 2, and a Nintendo DS version of this game; why not a Playstation Portable version? Who wouldn't want a version for their PSP? It's a great game. Come on, WB Games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game for the movie fans November 10, 2010
By JSC
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this game for both Wii and PS2 (running on older PS3 with the PS2 backward compatibility). Wii version is more stable than the PS2 version we ran on PS3. We have wheels (Logitech G25 and driving force) but they aren't recognized. Now with latest OS installed on PS3, it hangs half of the times during start-up. I assume it'll run flawlessly in a regular PS2 console.

The game itself allows the player to experience the same style tracks as in the movie with Mach 6. No back/cross country roads, just the futuristic (but unrealistic) tracks. The car can be damaged and behave as such. Teaming up is cool as there are also some trash talking between drivers. It was fun and movie lover who are curious will like to try this game. It doesn't come close in terms of features that are found in the established racing games (GT, NFS, etc)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun in a box , and with a great cover! December 14, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like terrific arcade level graphics , colors that pop outa the screen , exotic tracks and bumper cars than this game is for you. Have fun using Car-Fu against your enemies as you try to stay on track collecting speedbossters for the ultimate blast too the finish line. Unlock Trailers , artwork , Drivers and tracks as you advance with each race. With a fun soundtrack , great action and straightfoward , simply gameplay makes this fun and appropiate for the entire family.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok October 27, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
For the price I did not expect much.

Pros:
- Tracks are interesting.
- Moderately refreshing to be able to drive cars in an unconventional way.

Cons:
- The AI for the cars latches onto you too tightly. Even if you are driving slowly they never get very far ahead and even when you enter Zone mode and blaze past everyone, invariably somebody is always just behind you. So clearly the AI is cheating.
- No weapons. You can only shunt and flip your car.
- Music is weak. No original Speed Racer tune.
- Voice acting is rather weak.
