9. Star Wars Episode I Racer

Episode 1 Racer

With the sheer mention of The Phantom Menace a level of dismissal instantly clouds our judgement like a weak Padawan bowing down to the Dark Side of the force. But, as mentioned in the previous point, Episode I was so much more than a Jar Jar Binks nightmare, instead producing more fine Star Wars games for our gaming pleasure.

Take for instance Episode I Racer, using to its advantage the fact that this was one section of the film that audiences actually enjoyed, and adapting it to create a wholly satisfying and exciting platform for a racing game.

Featuring various winding tracks and lightning-fast straights, this was a game that took the elements of a classic racer such as Wipeout and submersed it into the galaxy far, far away.

While the very thought of young Anakin Skywalker provoked thoughts that Yoda would immediately question, the draw of actually being able to control a podracer like him and compete in the Boonta Eve Classic was too hard to resist.
