2 Stars out of 4

Factual Information:

Chocobo Racing features five different game play modes: grand prix, time attack, story mode, and 2-player versus and relay modes. Once you beat the Story mode, you can customize characters in Edit Parameters. Hidden characters include Squall from FF8, Cloud from FF7, Cid from FF6, and Aya from Parasite Eve.


- The pop-up book presentation in Story Mode looks like something out of Yoshi's Story. Too childish for me. Stories are described through boring text.
- The power-ups are different, interesting, and fun, but I wish they were more integral to game play.
- You can't slide corners well; braking doesn't work effectively.
- Only 8 tracks initially, but you can open up more.
- Graphics are surprisingly good.
- Endings constitute a series of photographs (of your character) taken during (or from) the race, followed by credits over crayon drawings of Chocobo and friends. The song during the credits ("Diamonds in My Heart," voiced by Vicki Bell) is quite nice.
