    This game was my childhood.

    ...or at least part of it. I remember playing this years and years and years ago (back when Windows 98 was around). I loved it. I lost the disc one day though, and I have no idea where it is still. But back then, it was ... Read Full Review

    What looks like an obvious money title is redeemed by being good.

    Since Star Wars is a very big franchise in video games (as in anything else), it was practically inevitable that it will explore every existing gaming genre: RTS (Star Wars: Empire At War), RPG (KOTOR), Tactical Fps (Rep... Read Full Review

    Always fun and addictive!

    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 usually so focused on not ... Read Full Review

    A pure old-school racing game. Very nice

    Ive had this game for ages and ages and it still packs a good old punch of fun! There are loads of cool tracks and there are variations of different tracks as well. Every time you beat a racer on his own track youll get ... Read Full Review

    Simple, and very well done.

    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 basically as long as there h... Read Full Review

    One of the best star wars games to date.

    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 surroundings move smoothly and... Read Full Review

    Oh the speed...!

    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 to actually sit in th... Read Full Review

    Get it for the N64

    I often buy games for the PC, then realize they suck and buy it for the console. This is one of those cases. Shaky PC controls make it morth worthwile to buy this for N64. It is a kind of "Wipeout" sort of futuristic rac... Read Full Review

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

    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 finally saw the lig... Read Full Review
