When I look at this game series I can't help but be dumbfounded. On one hand we have a character whose entire concept is that he can run faster than the speed of sound, can leap about one hundred feet in the air, can punch cars off the road and if he's really feeling it, he can telaport, stop time, move at the speed of light or telaport something else entirely at a whim. And he's competing with what amounts to a street-level meta human in athletic events. Even ignoring story fluff and going only by game mechanics, it only takes one play through Speed Highway to figure out that this game concept is retarded. I'm sorry I just can't get passed that. I know it's not supposed to be taken seriously. But I can't get past it. Fucking PS2.
