Star Wars Episode 1 - Pod Racer (PC) ... any appeal if you take away the movie license? The answer, almost surprisingly, is yes. This sci-fi arcade racing game is packed with high-speed thrills and a unique style of track-circling action that should get any racing fan's adrenaline pumping. The game is based on the pod-racing scene from Episode I, which was arguably the best and most exciting segment of the film. Players enter a series of pod races as either Anakin Skywalker or one of his 20 different alien rivals--including Sebulba, once you get far enough into the game to unlock this bonus character. Races are linked in four different circuits, each more difficult than the last. The highest circuit, in fact, can be extremely tough. Each race is a white-knuckled ride on the wild side, as the game does an excellent job of conveying a feeling of ferocious speed.

Star Wars Pod Racer is, as you can tell from its title, quite a different take on George Lucas's prized Universe. Instead of swinging light sabres around and trying to stop Darth Vader from taking over the world, we have an unpretentious and fairly fluffy little game that sees you taking part in pod races with not really much at stake at all. The gameplay has a steep learning curve but it is generally quite well designed; the controls in particular take some getting used to, but soon enough you'll be whizzing around and steamrolling the competition. Well, the computer players are actually quite difficult, and you'll probably get quite frustrated at how they'll ... Read the complete review

The problem with this game is that on my first go i finished 1st. Eh hang on a minute are games supposed to be a new challenge, a new adventure, a light at the end of a dark tunnel. This game presents no challenge what so ever and anyway hasn't starwars been done to death? The game does have great graphics and the gameplay is smart and easy to handle and multiplayer is really good but overall this game doesn't present anythig what-so-ever as a challenge. another thing to consider about this game is the age range. Its ok if you are about 6 because it is quite a challange and if you are a parent willing to buy a game for a child then you should buy this for them. .. Read the complete review

Star wars pod racer is a pc game based on podracing, a sport first scene in star wars a phantom menace, whereby Anakin Skywalker flies what is essentially a death trap at break neck speeds to win parts to fix a spaceship (its a long story). I have to say in my humble opinion, this is the best futuristic racing game to date. The sounds of this game are just like in the film, that sort of dull screeching metal grinding sound as you activate the boost on your podracer, the sounds of the smashing, the feeling that on some of the more tricky levels you really need to have you wits about you, the fact that a few crashes will smash your little racer into oblivion, ...

Hold on to yo Hatz – This is a Racer Like No Other!! This is Star Wars Episode 1 Racer. A high-speed futuristic racer that was borne from THAT single scene in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. The concept required, and has aptly delivered, various other backdrops and courses aside from the desert landscape portrayed in the movie, making it live up to the standards of previous racing games. Underwater, ice, swamp jungle, mountainous and space worlds to name a few have been represented. Most of which refer to locales and worlds in the movie. As became the standard following Street Fighter 2, there are many characters you can choose ... Read the complete review

Star Wars - Episode One Racer (to give it the full title) was released back around the same time as the film hit the big screens. Back then I still had a Playstation and alas, it was never released on Sony's grey box. It was one of those games that looked great, just seeing it made you want to play it. But back in those days I didn't have a nice new shiny PC (although it's getting less and less shiny) and I had to wait until now to give it a go. I just happened to be browsing my favoured local games store when I saw a copy of this available second hand for around £10. A bargain I thought to myself, and snapped it up! I had read the reviews of course, ... Read the complete review
