Star Wars Super Bombad RacingTHE GOOD: Race track design, graphics, diddy Darth Maul.
THE BAD: Jar-Jar Binks, why Boss Nass instead of a Battle Droid?
SUMMARY: To change Episode One into a Mario-Kart style world seems like a recipe for disaster, but Super Bombad Racing works quite well. A decent kart game, and the only kart game on PS2 for the moment, Bombad tries things a little differently with floating characters. This enables the player to bounce off things, fly over cracks in the road and boost up, up and away! Cute graphics, with little or no slow-down, and very good level design with so many shortcuts you won't have time to find them all. Example: Boonta Eve PodRace: at one point there are three different ways to get to the finish line. A tiny Darth Maul was a great idea, and Yoda makes me giggle like I was ten years old again. But why Jar-Jar, and why Boss Nass instead of a Battle Droid? Loads of secret characters like Boba Fett and Darth Vader, Arena battles, Mirror mode and Team races all add to the package. My favorite part is that you can save your race and come back to race yourself! Tell me one other way to do this apart from inventing repulsor lifts for your car and cloning yourself...
To finish, a Jedi Mind Trick... buy this game, you will!
