Well, old record. In that Star Wars Episode I: Racer
(available now for Nintendo Switch
and PlayStation 4
) is essentially the N64 original in a shiny new HD package. After going toe to toe against Sebulba and little Ani throughout the galaxy for a few weeks now - we're ready to bring you our full review.
Where we imagine an alternate universe, free from quarantine. Except there's one catch.
The Phantom Menace is what it is, and no matter your thoughts on the ways of the midichlorians a game about Pod Racing set in the Star Wars universe is a wonderful idea. So much so that if this were a full-blown remake as opposed to a bare-bones remaster, we’d have no problem telling Ani how Wizard it totally is. Kudos to the team at LucasArts for deciding that a Jar Jar-style Mario 64 clone was not the way to go when creating its movie-game for the Nintendo 64. In an alternate universe somewhere we’d be lamenting why the studio didn’t make a Pod Racing game instead.
