Jon van Sharky Extreme heeft een review van Episode 1 Racer in elkaar geschroefd. In tegenstelling tot de meeste reviews die ik tot nu toe gezien hebben, vinden ze het bij Sharky Extreme géén baggerslecht spel: hij krijgt een 9!
The tracks in Episode I Racer are a real treat to the arcade-racing fan. Tracks vary widely in graphics and layout. There are several tracks where, in the same race, you will travel through two or three different environments, which other games would have split into different races. This huge variety in even a single race really makes things interesting. A track made of mostly wide paths with easy turns can change into an underground tunnel killing field, which emerges onto a cliff side filled with sharp turns. And that's not all, there are also many side-paths and alternate routes which can save you time, or get you into serious trouble. Some paths are difficult to get onto but once you're there, let you go full speed and avoid a difficult part of the track. Other parts are easy to get onto, but require you to pilot your pants off in order to shave just a second or two off your lap time. There are even places where there is no savings or loss of time, but you can pass an opponent without them getting in your way. LucasArts outdid themselves and everyone else with the track design!
