The car-fu style of action within the game closely represent the action style designed by the Wachowski brothers for the film itself as they lend direction and assets to the development team directly from their Berlin set. Written and directed by the Wachowski brothers and produced by Joel Silver, Speed Racer is based on the classic series created by anime pioneer Tatsuo Yoshida. Speed Racer follows the young race car driver Speed in his quest for glory on and off the track in his thundering Mach 5. The film features other characters that fans of the show remember, including Speed's family and his mysterious arch-rival, Racer X. [Warner Bros.] Expand

    Speed Racer: The Videogame's biggest problem is just that there isn't really enough of it.

    All up though, Speed Racer is colourful, funny, has good music and the graphics still hold up on the aging PS2. In fact, I would go so far as to say Speed Racer makes a much better game than it does a movie.
  3. Take one part stock standard racer. Add speed. Add blur. Remove control. Speed Racer.

    Best futuristic racing I have ever played. Original concepts. loop the loop is mad and also the huge vertical jumps and lots of speed boostsBest futuristic racing I have ever played. Original concepts. loop the loop is mad and also the huge vertical jumps and lots of speed boosts on the track. The tracks are colourful and the graphics are good. The controls are spot on and the game has tons of gameplay to keep you playing till the wee hours in the morning. Good music Fantastic game a must buy and a bargain at just $20. Expand

    Although the game is very easy, is also very addicting. It is a very simple racing game with Speed Racer asthetics on, and that's it.
    The cars go super fast and that's the idea so really tough corners are absent making the game easy.
    You can destroy other cars in the track by spinning like in the movie again without losing momentum, that gives the player the will to bump other cars but that makes the race easy.
    You can also make alliances with other drivers during the championship like the movie, but that makes the race even easier and sometimes the driver chosen will say no.
    Too easy game, but still something will make you comeback once and awhile. The characters are on par with the movie, not the anime, the tracks and environment are really pretty.
