Game description: It has been eight years since the first spectacular Podracing showdown between Sebulba and the young Anakin Skywalker. Seeking payback for his humiliating loss, Sebulba has a new beefed-up Podracer and lust for revenge. But it's not going to be easy: Anakin has grown into a boldly skilled Podracer pilot... Thus the stage is set for Star Wars Racer Revenge, bringing newer, faster, and even more dangerous Podracing to the galaxy-taking you on a one-way ride to ultimate victory. Jockey for position with a tangle of Podracing opponents or leave the pack behind at intense, nerve-jangling, planet-scorching simulated speeds of up to 600 mph. Crash and bash competitors into oblivion as you take them out of the race for good.
Sequel to Star Wars Episode I: Racer. The story takes place eight years after The Phantom Menace, Sebulba wants revenge on Anakin Skywalker. Unlike its predecessor, the player isn't able to continue racing if they crash their pod, perhaps for added realism.
