In the 21st century, mankind has finally expanded its reach into the corners of space. After a narrow victory years ago against their enemies, the Crogs, humanity’s peace is again threatened – but this time, they are saved from an external force known as the Avatar. He offers them a chance to enter the Great Race of Oban and compete for the ultimate prize; and man, with the alternative of defeat at the hands of the Crogs, enters. Meanwhile, Eva is a young girl whose father, the famous race manager Don Wei, left her alone in a boarding school years ago; and she has not heard from him since. Upon tracking him down, Don does not recognize his daughter and treats her harshly; so Eva dubs herself Molly, gets a job as a mechanic on the team, and ultimately tags along with Earth’s star racing team to participate in the Oban Race. Fierce opponents and racetracks stand in their way – will Earth’s team be successful?
In a time where hover cars reign supreme and wheeled vehicles are a thing of the past, one group of dedicated speedsters aim for the ultimate goal: to compete in the notorious "Redline" race. In a no-holds-barred battle where anything goes from nitro boosters to all-out warfare and dirty tactics, competitors must be prepared for anything. Having lost out in the qualifying Yellowline race, "Sweet" JP finally gets the chance to participate in Redline as a substitute. However, with his car requiring a total rebuild, the Roboworld government using all their military might to prevent the race from happening, and host of the universe’s best racers – including the beautiful Sonoshee Maclaren – to contend with, can JP go for glory and take the checkered flag?
I'm astonished that no one else has recommended these two together - galactic space race with tons of wacky characters/aliens? These two can't be more perfect together.
If you like racing in space surrounded by aliens and lots of fast paced action look no further than these 2 titles. Both have a lovely Star Wars epsiode 1 feel to them as well. Oban is slightly more childish in tone where Redline is very mature but both fit together lovely.
Redline and Obans stories differ fairly greatly. The reason these are cross reccomended is because of the focus on futuristic racing on both. If you like the action of one you will like the other.

For Ryu, helping High Orbit Division is not just noble, it’s personal: five years ago, Black Shadow liberated Zoda himself from a high security stasis prison. It’s a high stakes race to the finish for Ryu, his comrades, and the mysterious masked racer Captain Falcon!
Oban Star-Racers and F-Zero are futuristic racing tales that may appeal to the same people. Oban is MUCH better (and is akin to the first Star Wars prequel) while F-Zero is more cheesy and somewhat terrible, but if you liked one, you may enjoy the other.
