Game-over.net heeft een review van Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer in elkaar getimmert. Ze geven het spel 24% en vinden het compleet waardeloos:
All in all, there is absolutely nothing good about this game. If you really want some wicked force effects, don’t get this game – especially not at its suggested retail price of $44.99US. Go to the arcades – you can spend half of this money, but get four times the fun – even from old classics like GT Racer. I didn’t expect much from this game when I originally read the preview in PC Gamer – because even they, with all their enthusiasm and open-mindedness couldn’t mask the screenshots, and couldn’t make this game sound any good at all. Even back then it was entirely obvious that this is a cheap cash-in from a well-respected brand, LucasArts. Again, allow me to reiterate – do not, under any circumstances buy this game. It’s junk. Or, as a good friend of mine puts it, ‘This is jonx’. To use a cliché expression, avoid this like the Plague. Even if you have to own everything related to Star Wars. Buy another Darth Vader figurine instead – at least he had a cool voice. And if you crave a feeling of speed – take a roller coaster. At least it’s real.
