Hello, This is a Jii review on the new game "Speed Racer: The Videogame" based on the movie starring Emile Hirsch "Speed Racer" (2008).
When I received this game I was expecting a bore based on the ad's I saw for it and it did everything but prove me wrong, When I put in the game disk and started it up one of the first things I noticed was it asked me to hold the remote horizontally while browsing the menu. I took the well put together tutorials and in about 3 minutes I was ready to start my first race, by this time I'm not at all impressed by the graphics but am quite surprised by the control of the car. The handling was easy enough and the simplicity of attacking other cars made gameplay fun. I start my race and quickly discover the addicting attributes of the racing it self, after completing the first two (out of three) championships I relised that I was about 75% done with the game and I had only played an hour.
In short The game is great for parties because it is easy to master but I would not recommend playing longer than about and hour and a half before boredom strikes. All in All I rated this a "Fair" maybe a good rent if you don't mind bad graphics and aren't up for a challenge.
