  • Summary: It has a little Star Wars flair to add to its appeal, but the pure racing action alone is enough to make this game a rewarding experience.

    I've spent many hours playing this game with my brother. One of the best games of my childhood.

This is the game which got me into the arcade racing genre and the PC version is by far the definitive version! Expand

    Incredibly well polished and fast paced game. Lots of maps and characters to choose. I love the stats and upgrades system. My only problemIncredibly well polished and fast paced game. Lots of maps and characters to choose. I love the stats and upgrades system. My only problem with it is that the AI's are way too easy to beat. The skill ceiling for the game is pretty high though, so it's still gratifying trying to go as fast as possible. Expand

    A classic racer game that still holds up after 20+ years.
    Sure, the visuals are pretty dated, which is to be expected, and the game itself is
    A classic racer game that still holds up after 20+ years.
    Sure, the visuals are pretty dated, which is to be expected, and the game itself is really easy if you're not reckless.
    But other than that, it's a good quality game for its time, especially considering that it's a movie tie-in.
    It's chock-full of atmosphere and flair, especially the stages, which are all visually interesting and unique to each other. It has many at the time rarely seen mechanics, like a degradable engine which can get damaged from reckless driving or blow up from overheating, shops with many upgrades to your vehicles, and many colorful characters, each with its own statistics, instead of being just a different skin.
    Also, you can really feel the high-speed you are driving with here, especially if you decide to play in a first-person view.
    Overall, it's a really fun game (even for someone like me, who usually doesn't enjoy racing games.) Though, I probably wouldn't recommend it to most people. Consider buying it if you feel nostalgic for the title, are a dedicated Star Wars fan, or if you want to experience a part of gaming history.

    It's probably the single best thing that came out of The Phantom Menace.

    I remember to have a lot of fun with that game, when it was released on Dreamcast, so I was looking forward to try it with the GoG Version.I remember to have a lot of fun with that game, when it was released on Dreamcast, so I was looking forward to try it with the GoG Version. But the controlling is so bad, that I stopped that game only after few minutes. I cant remember if the controlling was so slow in the Dreamcast version also. But I read, that this game is very hard in the end, so I didnt want to frustrate more. There are better games outside. Or maybe this game needs a great remake with newest graphic engine and some new ideas. I read that there is a Unreal Engine 4 version out there, but my laptop is too old to play that. Expand
