    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

    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

    For those who expected good things from episode 1

    Star Wars Episode 1 wasn’t the brightest star in the Star Wars universe and most games that came out based on it flopped horribly, luckily this game has almost nothing to do with the movie. First up, the in game music... 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

    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

    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

    Star Wars Episode 1 racer 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. You must be at lea... Read Full Review
