  • Excerpt: "Being a bif Star Wars fan, I bought this game on PC and loved it. Unfortunately, the disk it now covered in scratch marks that have completely ruined the disk. So the moment I saw this in my local store, I instantly bought it and played it. Most of the racing games that were released for the Dreamcast were mediocre but there were a few that were actually quite good. This is one of those games. The graphics are actually quite good but they aren't ...
  • Pros: Fun, addictive, great looks, noises, interesting environments
  • Cons: Slightly out of date graphics, wasy to crash

  • Excerpt: "The simultaneous release of Star Wars Episode I on videotape and Star Wars Episode I:Racer for the Dreamcast was no coincidence; with Episode I merchandising for toys and other items fizzling and with Episode II still a ways off, LucasFilm and LucasArts were looking to give Episode I a much-needed shot in the arm. While the DC version of Racer is the best of the three current versions (the others were for PC and for N64), this version provides nothing ...
  • Pros: Star Wars eat ya heart out !
  • Cons: None  -  unless you don't like Star Wars

  • Excerpt: "Before this game was released, everybody knew that there was no extra modes or options included for the dreamcast version. Fine, we'll just take the game as it comes because it is so good anyway. I played this games for about three hours and already was about 45% into the game already. I was thinking how easy this games is, but then I hit one track which was so difficult I have had to stop playing the game. This learning curve was a bit vertical. ...
  • Pros: Smooth graphics .  It's Star Wars
  • Cons: Lacking Depth .  It's Star Wars

  • Excerpt: "Just about the only decent use of The Phantom Menace license, Lucasarts racer was an exhilarating experience on Playstation, N64 and PC. It finally comes to the Dreamcast and is pretty much an excellent conversion. With very good graphics, pumping tunes and suitably bombastic sound effects Episode 1 Racer conveys the high-speed thrills and spills of pod racing extremely effectively. Pod handling ? reminiscent of Wipeout ? is also fun to master and ...
  • Pros: Great sound effect
  • Cons: No 4 - player mode .

Episode 1 racer

  • Excerpt: "The best bit of the Episode 1: The Phantom Menace movie was undoubtedly the pod race sequence, in which young Skywalker blasted over the surface of Tatooine in a contraption built using two jet engines. It's this sci-fi chariot-style race that's captured here, with those 600mph speeds recreated so well you'll feel yourself leaning back in the chair as your pod racer blasts from the starting line. Cleverly building on the race concept, the game expands ...

  • Excerpt: Se non erro acquistai questo gioco nel 2001 quando Dreamcast ancora si trovava sugli scaffali dei negozi e.. rimasi a dir poco basito quando lo provai, mai visto niente di simile, al tempo ci giocavo anche su Pc ma non c'era nessun paragone, per l'ennesim ...

  • Summary: Hersteller: Lucas Arts Sprache: englisch/deutsch Spielerzahl: 1-2 Spieler Umfang: 1 GD-Rom VMU: Je 5 Blöcke pro Spielstand VGA-Box: kompatibel Vorgänger: - Nachfolger: - Als 1999 der vierte Teil (genauer: Episode I) der erfolgreichsten Filmreihe aller Zeiten die Leinwände erblickte, waren viele Fans von der Qualität des Streifens enttäuscht. Einer der wenigen Lichtblicke war die actionbetonte "Pod-Sequenz", die dank ihrer wahnsinnigen Geschwindigkeit überzeugte.
  • Pros: Motivierenter Saison Modus,viele Charakter und Strecken
  • Cons: Unterdurchschnittliche Technik,normales Gameplay

  • Summary: Nach einigen Tagen Pause bringe ich wieder einmal einen Bericht über ein Spiel für unsere gute alte Dreamcast. Neben dieser Version existiert desweiteren eine für das N64 und eine für den PC, wobei die DC Version allerdings als die beste gilt. Nun aber zum Spiel: Sicherlich haben beinahe alle, die diesen Artikel lesen, Starwars Episode 1 gesehen und davon haben sicherlich die Hälfte die geniale POD Racing Sequenz mit großen Augen und weit offenen Mündern verfolgt.
  • Pros: gute Steuerung, hohe Spielbarkeit, keine der sonst so billigen Filmumsetzungen
  • Cons: schlechte GRafik, auf die Dauer vielleicht etwas eintönig

  • Summary: Ein Augenzwinkern, und Du hängst an der Wand! Mit 1000 Sachen über Tattooine, einen Minenplaneten oder durch den giftigen Methansumpf - wer dachte, das Podracer-Rennen aus dem Film "Starwars Episode 1" wäre schnell, der hat das Dreamcast-Spiel noch nicht gespielt! ** Vorbemerkung ** Mein Erfahrungsbericht bezieht sich ausschließlich auf die Sega Dreamcast-Version.
  • Pros: Starwars - Feeling, toller Soundtrack, extrem schnell, packend
  • Cons: PC - Konvertierung, Einzelspieler - Modus zu schwer

MUY ENTRETENIDO

Ciao

  • Excerpt: A simple vista no parece nada del otro mundo, incluso cuando empiezasa a jugar parece que no es nada del otro mundo, pero a medida que te adrentras en el juego y avanzas circuitos la adrenalina empieza a correr por tus venas y la espectacularidad aumenta considerablemente. El juego graficamente esta correcto y el sonido bastante bien, aunque hay que lamentar un poco la carencia de mas personajes.
  • Pros: Juego entretenido
  • Cons: Demasiado facil
