    Any racing video gaming that are sci-fi (science fiction) based? Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity has one, but how about the others that has a sci-fi basesd racing game?

    Ideas could help.

    Try Speed Racer on the wii. If you have gamecube controllers, try to get F-Zero GX as that is the best sci-fi racing game ever.

    if you want a real challenge then invest into f-zero gx for the gamecube:. its hard and you will have to spend a lot of time to beat it:.

    Thanks for the list by the way, except Mario Kart series because it's not sci-fi based. I believe that F-Zero and Sonic Riders series have truly sci-fi based, though.
