Looney Tunes: Space Race is a 2000 kart-racing 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] 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.
