Flying straight from the silver screen to your PC comes Star Wars: Racer, which recreates the Podrace sequence from The
Phantom Menace for legions of gamers everywhere. Take the controls of your Pod as one of over 20 racers, all taken from the
film, and fly at speeds exceeding 600 miles per hour on 21 tracks spread across eight worlds.
From happy-go-lucky Anakin Skywalker to the cheating Sebulba, from the junk dealer Watto to Fode & Beed (the two-headed race
announcer), many of your favorite characters from Tatooine are here. Not only can you race on the desert world, but you can
also take on your opponents on planets such as the water-covered Aquilaris, the frozen Ando Prime, the swamp planet Baroonda,
and even the most famous Podracing world in the Star Wars universe, Malastare, with its methane gas lakes.
Play the tournament circuit on one of three difficulty levels and select your track. From there you can examine your racer's
condition, buy parts at Watto's junkyard, and even purchase Pit Droids which you can use to repair your craft during the race.
While you race, you can view the action from multiple camera angles and monitor your Pod's status. If you unlock Sebulba's racer
and use it, you can shoot flames into your opponents' engines. In multi-player mode over a LAN, you can shout taunts at other
racers in your character's voice. The force feedback option allows you to feel every collision and engine thrust.
From the Manufacturer: Star Wars: Episode I: Racer (PC Games, 1999) Imagine Ben Hur in a galaxy far, far away. Replace the
two-wheeled carriage with a futuristic, hovering pod -- now take away the horses and strap two giant afterburner-powered
engines to the vehicle. The boost of the two fuselages pulls the carriage forward at speeds in excess of 600mph and a stream of
pure energy, called a mag beam or coupler, makes sure that the engines don't fly off in opposite directions. Like its "real," up to
40-foot-long counterparts in the movie, Racer's pods use a three-point dynamics system that will cause the carriage to
realistically drift in the air behind its two engines. Unlike the movie, which features 18 opposing racers, Episode I Racer stars
more than 21 characters complete with their rides, including three pods based on original design concepts that weren't used in
the final film.
