For only twenty bucks you can't really go wrong with Lego Racers 2, a game that never jars you out of the crazy Lego world it establishes upon load up. Even with it's faults, it's an enjoyable, solid game worthy of a look from anyone into cartoon racers, Legos, or just that thing people do when their mouths perk back and their teeth show, I think it's called smiling. A few more tweaks here and there, and a little more in the way of multiplayer and this could have been elevated from pretty darn good, to bleeding damn excellent. I honestly do hope they continue the series.
En el mundo del PC sólo me vienen a la cabeza dos títulos que competirían con este Lego Racers 2. Uno es Wacky Racers, también de carreras para chavales aunque con menos opciones y desde luego mucho menos inmersivo. South Park Rally sería el otro título a batir, pero personalmente creo que no tienen tampoco mucho que ver, así que Lego Racers 2 ocupa en PC el puesto que en Nintendo ocuparía Mario Kart, puesto que, excepto la propia Lego, nadie antes se había percatado de este vacío en el espectro de los videojuegos para ordenador.
It's all a far cry from the mundane tracks of more realistic racing games, and although the physics and handling aren't as satisfying as in more adult-oriented games and you can complete many of the tracks without having to hit the brakes at all, the game can still be challenging in its own way. At the end of the day it's really aimed at kids, but there is enough here to keep older gamers entertained for a while too.
Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
LEGO Racers 2 ends up being a quite enjoyable game, but it never fulfills its potential as a top arcade combat racer. The adventure mode is quite intriguing, the ability to build cars from scratch and watch them disassemble is entertaining, and the split-screen competition is a blast. However, there is not enough substance in the racing options, track challenges, and audiovisual polish to set this offering apart from the pack. It is cute and perky, but LEGO needs to up the ante a bit more to come close to finishing first. Even so, LEGO Racers 2 provides a pleasant brick-laden romp away from the stresses and strains of everyday driving.
All Game Guide
Even with occasional glitches in the cars' movement, LEGO Racers 2 still flows and responds well for a keyboard-controlled racing game. Though winning isn't an easy feat, there is enjoyment in the pursuit. Whether racing against the computer or a friend, kids who enjoy the versatility of LEGOS will enjoy this game and the competition.
