Looney Tunes: Space Race is a 2000 video game developed by Infogrames, Inc. It was originally announced as a Nintendo 64 game in 1998,[1] but was later moved to the Dreamcast.[2] It was ported to PlayStation 2 in 2002 (under the name "Space Race") with a new tournament mode.[3] It is a kart racing game, where you can throw weapons such as dynamite at other racers. The game was not an immediate success among critics, but the general Consumer Reception was good. To this day, the PS2 version in the UK remains a rarity, with the Dreamcast version being the most popular.
