With a solid racing game engine and decent graphics, Lego Racers has delivered to me more than I thought it would. I expected it to be a cheap 'kids game' with mediocre graphics and no real gameplay to be found. I was pleasantly surprised. I've had a bunch of fun building and racing my car, and have been able to once again prove to everyone that I am the best game player in the world with the 2-player mode. Children, and even those a little older should give Lego Racers a chance as it has all the ingredients to make for a good little racing game experience.

If all "kids" software was as good as this, we wouldn't even need to make fun of the category. Folks, if your kids like LEGOs, you still have your own residual LEGO-fetish (go ahead, it's OK to admit it) or are a fan of race games, this is a superb addition to your software collection.

Lego Racers is a pleasant experience worthy of a look by gamers of all ages. If you're a parent looking for the next game to get for your child, Lego Racers is no doubt one of the best choices you can make. Endless hours of car creativity can be spent with this one. Older gamers might not enjoy the slow pace but even the customization makes this one at least worth a rental.

If you love MK, and I know you do, then you'll want to sample what Lego Racers has to offer. Lego continues to promote the imagination and creativity with its Lego Racers unique building options. If your mom never let you have all of those different Lego sets, Lego Racers puts them right at your fingertips. The weapons and shortcuts spice up the racing on the somewhat simple tracks. The game's visuals, not overwhelming, are up to par with previous Nintendo efforts and the framerate is almost always dependable. My biggest gripe lies in the game's lacking multiplayer support -- only two-player versus -- especially when the main competition is Mario Kart, one of the best multiplayer games for the console. Still, Lego Racers comes highly recommended for younger players and Kart racing fans.

Lego har alltid varit duktiga på att konsekvent utnyttja sitt varumärke och sitt speciella koncept. Något som märks tydligt redan i introsekvenserna i Lego Racers. Den som inte ler igenkännande här har aldrig lekt med legobitar.

Lego Racers accomplishes everything it sets out to do, providing a cute and spirited game fully accessible to a wide range of customers. While some will be disappointed with the absence of breakthrough graphics, sound, and remote multiplayer action, fans of arcade racers will be quite satisfied. The wonderful track designs, the great power-ups, and the ability to build vehicles from scratch really make the play memorable. Now that Lego Media has broken into hardcore gaming and shown that it can compete with the “big boys,” I cannot wait to see what they release next.

Though not a perfect world, but a Lego world, Lego Racers has a lot of character. The customizable cars and characteristics of the drivers make for a lot of fun on and off the track. This is a great title for families, though it's a shame that Lego Racers does not support up to four players. Nevertheless, family members may find themselves on the sidelines eagerly awaiting their turns with this fun and harmless game. That is, harmless unless it's consumed, which thankfully isn't all that likely.

Regardless of its shortcomings, LEGO Racers is still quite fun. Its bright colors, generally simple gameplay, and kid-friendly graphics and sound also make it a safe purchase for concerned parents, though some of its more challenging tracks may not go over well with the very young.

Simplicité est le maître mot de ce titre et tout a été pensé pour faciliter l'accès des plus petits. Ce n'est pas étonnant de la part de LEGO qui a testé le jeu avec beaucoup d'enfants. Simplicité, c'est bien mais pas partout surtout au niveau sonore et graphique. Même s'il est très joli, on sent bien que certains aspects auraient pu être améliorés pour plaire aux plus âgés. Cependant, Lego Racers est un très bon jeu à acheter à votre petit frère.

Lego racers est un jeu de petites voitures (un peu comme Radio Control Racers et Revolt). Le jeu a de nombreux rapports avec les Legos : l'aspect des véhicules, des pilotes... Pour ceux qui ne savent pas ce que sont les Legos, ce sont des briques qui, en les assemblant, forment des constructions très diverses.

Schade, dass sich die Entwickler dieses Spiels so wenig Mühe gegeben haben, sieht man vom Design und den Extras ab. Gute Ansätze sind in jedem Fall vorhanden, und Lego-Freunde werden mit Sicherheit Freude daran haben. Für Fun-Racer-Freaks seien jedoch nach wie vor Diddy Kong Racing und Mario Kart 64 empfohlen.

Malgré quelques bonnes idées, Lego Racers n'arrive pas à la cheville d'un Mario Kart, qui reste, de loin, la référence du genre.

Malgré son univers amusant, et ses innovations, la mauvaise jouabilité de ce jeu en fait vite perdre de vue l'intérêt principal que revendique Lego Racer, à savoir : la course.

Sammanfattningsvis kan jag säga att Lego Racers på det stora hela är ett bra gjort spel. Det finns inte mycket att klaga på – grafiken, ljudet, menyerna, manualen och atmosfären är praktiskt taget felfria. Om du letar efter ett underhållande arkadspel som du kan spela med din tolvåriga grabb eller dotter så är Lego Racers perfekt. För oss andra kan det vara ett trevligt tidsfördriv när vi behöver en paus från tunga strategispel.

Би-би-би! Понятно, что дети лет до восьми нас не читают. Поэтому, родители! Внемлите моему опыту (увы, я не смог поведать обо всем с позиции ребенка) и купите своему дитяте эту игрушку. Пусть он приобщается к хорошим и добрым играм, нежели однажды обнаружит в каком-нибудь компьютерно-подвальном клубе кровожадную Кваку. Би-би-би!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: great ideas, poor execution. Lego Racers COULD have been good, but because of long load times and mediocre track design, it's just an average game. Not a bad one, but not stellar by any means, either.

Ce n'est certainement pas avec une console qu'un enfant de quatre ans va développer ses talents manuels ni sa perception de l'espace. D'autre part, ce soft n'intéressera pas non plus les joueurs plus âgés, qui trouveront de bien meilleures sensations avec des titres eux aussi bien meilleurs (de vraies simulations de course, ou des jeux plus fun, comme Micromachines, par exemple). Moralité : licence + réalisation technique bâclée + zéro originalité = arnaque ! Ne vous laissez pas piéger !

Nintendo 64Daily Radar
In this simplistic racing game that follows all the mascot racing conventions, the ability to build and race your own Lego car is almost worth the price of admission. First you build your character, then your car. Building on a simple frame you have hundreds of blocks to choose and place anywhere you want on your vehicle. The blueprint you have to work with is a set size, which means you can't have a car sixty feet wide, but the title still gives you a great deal of flexibility. The racing engine, however, will appeal only to the very young and the very forgiving. Bad physics, lackluster levels, and uninspired powerups make the game less than fun. We recommend Racers only to the biggest Lego-maniacs.

Since the popularity of Super Mario Kart on the SNES, it seems as though companies are rushing to slap their brands or mascots on racing carts of their own. Unfortunately, few of the cart games that have appeared on shelves since the genre exploded have reached the level of Super Mario Kart, and Lego Racers doesn't even come close. With bland gameplay, boring racing and a frustrating Lego construction system, Lego Racers just translates into an incomplete package.

Schon die CD-Hülle mit den typischen Lego-Noppen weckt Kindheitserinnerungen. Design wie Menüs sehen schön bunt aus und für die "kleine" Zielgruppe (die übrigens schon lesen können sollte) passend aus. Allzu schwierig ist es auch nicht Käpt'n Rotbart und seine Spießgesellen im Rennen zu besiegen, was erfahrene Rennspieler klar unterfordert, für Kinder aber angemessen ist. Die wenig aufregende Grafik hingegen dürfte wohl niemand anziehend finden.

Everything else in this version is the same as the PC one, from the bouncy music to the ability to build your own racers. I like the customization feature in this game, but you shouldn't have to spend a lot of time tweaking your racer to figure out how to win races unless you're really into the game. Making the game a little easier overall by building a catch-up factor into it and adding a difficulty setting so that kids can race on the easiest level and complete a few circuits would keep this title from going into the mark-down bins.
