    the speed is good.. and the 3d engine is very well done..

    Ya it looks pretty cheap without textures, but Im sure the added textures would just bring down the FPS. [​IMG]

    But it looks fun, maybe ill start plyain this aswell as my beloved rally games.

    (I'm addicted to rally racing)

    Oh yah, I plum forgot about that SNES game.
    It was amazing for its day. And on the 64 it was good 2.


    Cant remeber if the 64 one had textures though.

    i definitley love this game!
    i suggest everyone to give it a try because it's fun and addictive!
    During a Championship you may choose to have qualifications, it's first person, inside the cockpit, and you have to do get the fastest time in a straight track, changing gears as better as possible and using the nitro in the right moment (like in fast and furious the film ) =) very very good

    Impressive engine! Nice 3D! I agree though, shame about the lack of textures. But the FPS certainly makes up for it! 60fps!

    I like it.
    The only bad thing is that you have to slow down a lot for corners.
    It's not like mario kart where you can power slide and not lose much speed!

    I got a question about this game though... In exactly what way is this game lego? I heve yet to play a lega game that acctualy made me feel like it had anything at all to do with the little platic blocks we all played with as kids...

    Played this all morning... It's ok, but the structure of the game isn't all its cracked up to be. Yeah the engine is nice and fast but, at most, it's pushing, what, 12 polygons at the most? Handling is kinda interesting but the actual game is nothing we haven't seen a million times before. Where are the lego-specific powerups like being able to steal wheels from your oponents as you drive past or swap heads with the driver of the car or something?

    Would love to see a port of stunt race fx using this graphics engine!

    this game reminds me of stunt racer fx, i loved that game, although i think stunt racer fx had faster speed to it & abit better handling as well as more chanllenging with more cars [​IMG]

    I love this game! The drag racing is brilliant, I keep trying to get a better time.

    The graphics kinda reminds me a little of Virtua Racing, I'd rather have the smoothness and sense of speed than have the polygons textured and run like crap. That's why I can't stand playing any of the rally racers on the GBA.

    Lego racer really shows off my SP all right.

    However (and don't slate me, I love my SP) I had an Atari Lynx 11 years ago with stun runner throwing out polygons with good framerates and nice sound!

    Playing a polygon racer game on a backlit handheld in 2003 and being impressed just shows what a great little machine the lynx was, well ahead of it's time. (Pity about battery life etc)
