Game of the Month Review: Speed Racer X - Page
Date: April 1, 1999
This game features an original racing engine with multiple speed levels. There's no plot, you just have to waltz through many levels of racing-fun. After every four levels, there's a pit stop in which you will receive an upgrade (such as a speed booster or extra suspension). In every level you'll have to finish a certain amount of laps in a certain amount of time.
The gameplay factor is extremely high- it is addictive, thrilling and innovative at the same time. The programming is extravagant, almost as good as Koopo's, eJECTION's or Chronos' programming skills! The graphics aren't really important in this game, but of course every game needs decent graphics. And decent, that's the word for Speed Racer X's graphics: decent, basic STK-ed graphics style with normal fading techniques. Nothing special, but as I said, very decent.
I'm really looking forward to another game by Team Smiley X, 'cuz I'm sure it'll be kick-ass! ^_^
