Speed Racer is a computer game developed and published by Sony Computer Entertainment America. The game has been designed for the PlayStation 2. An eighteen-year old male player competes against the computer in an attempt to become the world champion speed racer. The game allows the player to choose from numerous different modes and the player can also adjust the difficulty of the game as they advance.
The game has a tutorial mode that teaches the player about the controls and how the game works. The game is played in split-screen view with up to four players can participate in the game at the same time. The four players are also provided with speed cars that can be changed with upgrades as the game progresses.
During the game, the player can choose from three different types of vehicles to use in the races. The player can change the type of car as they improve on their racing skills. As you improve your speed, you will also earn credits that can be used for purchases in the various modes available. Credits are earned through successful racing techniques, completing challenges, or winning particular competitions.
During the game the player must perform well to keep their cars on the track. Each stage has specific time limits and you must get to the finish line within that time period or your car will be disabled. The game is completed when the racer wins and sets the time record. There are various levels in the game including a race track to challenge all the players. The game has a total score system that includes the time, the amount of damage done, the amount of assists, and various other statistics.
There are also other ways to help you succeed in the game besides just racing your vehicle. As you improve on your driving skills, you can gain access to upgrades that make you more maneuverable while your car is moving. Other games feature obstacles which can also be used to help the player complete courses. There are also other obstacles that can be added to the course which gives them even more excitement as they strive to reach the finish line.
The main game mode in Speed Racer is Single Player. Here you have to complete a certain amount of laps in order to advance to the next level. In this game mode the player uses the arrow keys to control the direction of the vehicle and the left and right arrows to change the view. The action occurs on the tracks you see in the lower half of the screen. You can switch to the driving view from the track selection menu to see what is going on behind you.
Multi-player mode in the game can be played with up to four players. You can take turns racing against the computer or another player. If you prefer to play the game with friends, the game offers online play where you select a driver and pit your vehicle to race against others who like the same racing game as you do. The best part about playing the game with family and friends is that you can play the game together at the same time without interruption.
In addition to the single player game mode, the game has many other exciting features. For example, if you damage your vehicle during a race, you can pick it back up and try to finish the race without running out of lives. Another neat feature is the ability to upgrade your vehicle as you progress through the game. This allows you to buy better and faster vehicles as you go along and also earn money for upgrading your car.
