Lego Racers (PlayStation)
Lego Racers is a game developed by High Voltage Software and published by Lego Media in August 1999 for the PC, with a Nintendo 64 version releasing in October of that year and the PlayStation in December 1999, and in 2001 a Game Boy Color version. Both the PC and N64 versions received mainly positive reviews, but the PS1 version received more mixed reviews.
- The graphics have been completely watered down compared to the PC and N64 versions.
- Surprisingly difficult, even for a kids' game (even though back cover says it was "Kids tested, Kids approved"). Basil the Bat Lord and Gypsy Moth's already-difficult circuits are now almost unwinnable.
- Extremely delayed controls. The other versions had that problem, but this one takes it to the extreme and can make the game almost unplayable, and winning cups nigh-impossible.
- Many tracks suffer from extreme lag and slowdown.
- The game runs really slow on most PS1 emulators, meaning if you do want to play this version you will have to play it on a real console.
- Load times seem to take much longer than in the PC version (with the Nintendo 64 version having no load times at all).
- Still contains the nicely animated cutscenes from the PC version.
- One of the first-ever Lego console games.
- HVS did an okay job trying to get the game working on the PlayStation.
