Don't Think; Feel
If you've seen Star Wars: Episode 1, you remember the pod racing scene: Anakin Skywalker racing in what looks like a floating sled tied to two rocket engines. Now, you too can feel the excitement of shooting through narrow canyons at speeds up to 600 mph, either as Anakin, or an alien nemesis of your choosing. You and up to 7 of your friends can compete on one of 8 alien worlds, where killing your opponent isn't only allowed - it's rewarded.
Whats with the dinosaur?
This is definitely an arcade-style racing game. Little attention is paid to realistic detail: for example, it costs money to upgrade your pod, but you can destroy the entire thing as often as you want for free. It's all about getting into the action quickly, and finishing even faster. The focus is on plain and simple action; don't explore, don't use strategy, just go faster and win more!
