The Speed Racer revival is proceeding apace, fueled by a new cartoon series, a videotape, MTV reruns of the original show, and now a video game. Dangerous Adventures' amazing racing scenes-featuring flying cars that sprout buzz saws-are snatched straight from the '60s show and are rendered in the same pastel-colored animation that made it a kitschy favorite.
Poor graphics and action on the side-scrolling levels hurt the overall look and feel of this cart, but the racing levels are second to none for challenging fun. If you're a fan of the cartoon series, this cart definitely for you.
The racing stages are kind of dull. They're super long and very tedious until you start trying out your saw blades on opponents. The platform-style stages fare a little better, because you can be Racer X and prance around in his snazzy outfit and kick bad guys around. A weird combination of game types which only partly succeeds.
The tracks in Speed Racer are long, uneventful, and ugly - not even the inclusion of gadgets like wheel blades and autojacks spices things up enough to make this wreck worth playing. Go, Speed Racer. Just go.
