Complex Says: The pod racing sequence in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace was easily the best thing about that movie, and that's luckily what this game was about. The arcade version let you sit in a pod and control it with a proper pod control panel, but it only had four tracks. To make up for the lack of your own personal pod controls at home, the console versions featured more tracks. If your main concern when playing a racing game is feeling like your flying, this is one of the best gaming possibilities for you. This game felt insanely fast--and isn't that what you want out of a racing game?
