    One of the best star wars games to date.

    Rated on July 30, 2006 by Robbie8912

    This is a real blast. The number of pods you can win is awesome, the amount of upgrades available, is awsome, and the graphics for this game are off the chart!!!! The pods run smoothly, the surroundin...

    Oh the speed...!

    Rated on April 21, 2006 by azeira_10389

    Sheer, exhilarating, adrenaline-pumping SPEED: that basically sums up the feeling of this game. I'm sure you've seen the podracing sequence in the film, and maybe marveled at how exciting it must be t...

    For those who expected good things from episode 1

    Rated on January 09, 2006 by waflerevolution

    Rated on July 22, 2007 by thesuperpill

    I just had a crazy urge to bring out this game again and I remembered how addictive it was. Great classic! The sound gets very repetitive and becomes annoying after playing a few races but I am usuall...

    Be the best or be the trash. That's the motto of this game.

    Rated on February 18, 2006 by swordblade

    I must say, I really didn't expect much of this game at first though I am a big fan of the Star Wars series. The idea of no lightsabers or force powers just wasn't right. Then, I started playing and...

    Simple, and very well done.

    Rated on October 18, 2006 by lordgodalming

    The Phantom Menace gave birth to a whole line of questionable games on several different consoles, but Lucasarts struck gold with Episode I Racer for the PC. There have been racing games for basicall...

    Star Wars Episode 1 racer by Justinox

    Rated on November 10, 2005 by justinox

    Again a Star wars game, this time a racegame based on the podraces in Episode 1. After naming your character and choosing your pod+driver, you can buy your first upgrades and start the race right away...
