Ooit wel eens willen podracen ? U-Games.com heeft een review van LucasArts' nieuwe op Star Wars gebaseerde racespel:
Those of you who have scoured the net for all things Star Warsy, will no doubt have seen the trailer already and those neat speedy things that we shall call "pods" is what this game is all about. The actual scene from the movie is around 15 minutes long and is an important part of the story. This Podracing is the Grand Prix of the "long ago, in a galaxy far, far away" universe. Although it's an illegal sport, Podracing has a huge following on the worlds of the outer rim of the galaxy. Each "pod" is a capsule suspended using hovercraft-like anti-gravitics. Stretching out ahead linked to the cockpit by Steelton Control Cables are two massive engines, also hovering above the ground. Each of the engines dwarf the pod and are connected to each other by a beam of magnetic energy. This beam is visible as an arc of energy crackling across the air in between the engines.
Podracing, while incredibly popular with the masses for it's high speed, white-knuckle excitement has until now been only available to alien races who has the reflexes, plus the extra eyes and limbs necessary to pilot these futuristic chariots. Until now, humans have just simply not been able to handle all the controls with enough speed to stay alive, let alone win. Until, that is, a young boy called Anakin Skywalker enters his pod for the first time.
