Star Wars Episode I - Racer Review by: thing1 - 8.2/10

One of my favorite games for N64

This is one of the first games
I ever beat, and I did it on a real Nintendo 64, back when I was ten and eleven
years old. It took me awhile to do so, but it was well worth it. I really
enjoyed playing the game on my special edition controller with my rumble pack. 

I will attempt to do a proper review.
So here it goes.

I am giving the graphics an eight (8).

   I give this game an 8 in
graphics because the graphics are phenomenal for the games time. The
green fog on one track on one of the last... Grand Pres, or Series, which ever
you prefer, is epically awesome. And then you got the dirt, the looks of the
menu, the scrap shop. It is all amazing. The reason I am not giving it a ten, or
even a nine, is because of a few reasons: the first one being the city looks.
The "crowd", so to speak, is not the best. Granted, the actual people
in the crowd did not even show up until I believe NBA 2K6. And another reason
being it looks sort of pixilated in some areas.

I am giving the sound a respectable six

   My reasoning for this is
that the sound quality is sketchy at times. There is not an option for music
during game play, which really disappointed me, and still does.
However, the reason it is getting a six is because it does have some title
screen sounds, and during actual game play, you can hear the voices of the
characters. The sound is good, but the quality is not as great. My
rating might be a little higher if there was actually some music during game

I am giving the addictiveness of this
game a bold eight (8).

   My reasoning for this
being is that I love racing games. If I actually enjoy the game, then it is
safe to say that the game is at least half-way respectable. I like that you can
go back and improve your stats, instead of having to restart the entire thing,
and then you can also change characters and pods without being forced to finish
the series. That definitely adds towards the replay value and, ultimately
resulting in addictiveness. However, the reason it is not getting a full ten
(10) in addictiveness is that at times, you cannot go skip one race in a single
Grand Pre. You have to beat that race in order to move on. And that frustrated

I am going to give this game a nice nine
(9) for story.

   For a racing game that’s
not a street racing game where you can drive around the city, this game
actually has some story to it. The farther you go along, the more people you
can use, and the better the parts are that you can buy for your pod racer. You
have to win in order to earn money, in order for you to buy parts for your pod
racers. Had it not been a racing game, it would have received a much lower
score. But for an old school racing game, the story line is pretty decent.

For this game, I am going to give it a ten (10) in the department of depth. 

   The game is no easy task
to complete all way, in terms of getting all the characters and pods and parts without
cheat codes and hacks. The game offers a lot. It offers great game play,
addictiveness is pretty good. I know there is not much of a story line for this
game, and I had some trouble beating a certain race. I would play the game for
maybe an hour a day every day during the summer one year. The one track that I
mentioned above, dealing with the green... took me almost one hundred tries
just to get the darned banner to go on to the next track for that Series. It
has some great characteristics, and it will take a while to beat it entirely.

For this game, I am giving the
difficulty a seven (7).

   If you know how to play
racing games, then only a few tracks should frustrate you. If you are trying to
start doing racing games with this one... that is a bad idea. Try something
like Cruising USA or Maybe Mario Kart 64. Some of the tracks are pretty
easy, while others are very hard. So to combine the novice video game racers
and expert racers such as myself I think a seven (7) would fit best.

All in all, I am going to give this
game a nine point six (9.6) for overall. I loved this game, and it is still one
of my favorite Nintendo 64 games of all times, right up there with Mario Kart
64 and Super Mario 64, among a few others. 

If you have any questions on how or why
I rated the way I did, please feel free to comment on this thread. Thank You
