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.

Bad Qualities

  1. The graphics have been completely watered down compared to the PC and N64 versions.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Load times seem to take much longer than in the PC version (with the Nintendo 64 version having no load times at all).

Good Qualities

  1. Still contains the nicely animated cutscenes from the PC version.
  2. One of the first-ever Lego console games.
  3. HVS did an okay job trying to get the game working on the PlayStation.
