Star Wars Episode I: Racer
Reviewed by Shadow Luigi
I usually don't like racing games, but this is an exception. Racer is
obviously the best racing game ever and let me tell you why. Every time
you race, it's a whole different experience. Each race is action packed
with short cuts, hazards, crashing, and TONS of adventure. Every
Racer is detailed to the max. From Mawhonic's face, to the grime
on Sebulba's podracer. Even two secret podracers! Plus the Boonta
Classic is exactly like the movie. If you liked all the aliens, all the
action, and all the fun from the podrace scene, this is for you! There's
20+ podracers, 24 tracks, plus if you get all 24 races 1st place, you'll
unlock the 25 track, Inferno. You can even buy new parts with the prize
money you win for better performance with your podracer.
Graphics 5 out of 5
These graphics are great! Wow! 3-D racing like never before in this
game, and the graphics make it even greater. They must be the best
graphics with the 4MB expansion pack, but I don't know because I
don't have it. And when something happens to your podracer, it
looks really cool! Smoke coming out of your engine is one of the
many things that can happen to your podracer.
Music and Sound 4.8 out of 5
The sound is great, except for the fact that there's only one song
in the whole game. When somebody talks in the game, I swear it
sounds like the person is talking to me! You'll love the great sound
on this game!
Game Challenge 5 out of 5
The game starts out easy, but if you think it'll stay that way for
the whole time, you'll be sorry! I've been stuck on one race for a
couple weeks now. If you like challenging racing games, this game
is for you! Some of the races have lava pits, hair pin turns,
switchbacks, ice, rocks, sandcrawlers, Tusken Raiders, and
asteroids. Is that enough challenge for you?
Game Play-Fun 5 out of 5
Man, is this game fun! The really fun part is unlocking racers. They
all look so different. The tracks are amazingly fun, you'll love 'em!
Try not having fun. It's impossible! Using 2 player mode you can have
different divisions and keep racing to the playoffs, then the
championship. I made that up, but it's fun!
Replayability 4 out of 5
If you beat all the tracks try doing it with all the other characters!
Other than that, there isn't that much replayability, oh wait, there's
also the mirror mode! That's why I gave this a 4!
Overall 27 out of 30
Great game, I'd say it's a nice morsel to chew on, considering all
the great games coming out this year.
