is the first word that comes to my mind every time I play this
game. Imagine yourself being propelled at speeds up to 900 kph
flying though very narrow openings and soaring off cliffs, all
just 4 feet off the ground! That is exactly how the Starwars
Episode 1: racer is, and more, all set in the familiar starwars
can choose from a number of pod racers, and a whole bunch of
different characters taken directly from the movie. Among the
more known few is Anikan skywalker, a.k.a. young darth vader.
The pod racers, just like in the movie are no more then 2 giant
engines connected to a pod seat through 2 long control cables.
The engines are linked by a strong magnetic charge so that one
engine does not go off in 1 direction, and the other in another.
normal in-game controls are a breeze. You can use either a joystick,
game pad, or the good old keyboard for controls. Surprisingly,
the in game controls are very easy, for arcade race veterans,
and newbies alike. Moves consist of the basic turn right, turn
left, go, brake, and some more advanced features such as banking,
and the turbo speed mode (take my advice, use this with caution
or you will find yourself either off a cliff, or in a pile of
wreckage on the side of the road).
