Product Description

Other than sporting a really cool name (come on, you know you like "Bombad"), Star Wars: Super Bombad Racing also offers some really big heads. Seriously, some hard-core Star Wars fans might disapprove of this whimsical kart-racing game based on their beloved franchise, but the less uptight will appreciate seeing Darth Maul, Yoda, Boss Nass, and others scaled down to Tiny Tunes dimensions. The object of the game is to race around movie-inspired tracks, picking up dozens of power-ups (including speed and shield boosts and some vehicle-specific tuners), and, of course, being the first to cross the finish line. And rather than having the technical sophistication of a game like Star Wars Starfighter, the controls here are easy enough for the youngest Jedis to master.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for fans of the genre... May 16, 2001
This was the game that finally got me to break down and buy a PS2. I like sort of wacky, off-beat games, and this fit the bill. It combines two things I'm pretty fanatical about: Kart racing and Star Wars. Since Super Mario Kart for SNES, Kart racing has been my favorite genre. The problem is that no game has ever exceeded the greatness of the original SMK. This one certainly doesn't. The presentation of the game is great. The characters all look strange and cool with super-deformed heads. They all make snide comments, taunt, look around and are very well animated. For all the criticism of the graphics, I must disagree. I think the graphics are actually raelly pretty cool for what they are. The designers were going for a cartoony look. The characters all have different abilities, and they actually do handle differently. Plus, each character has a special powerup only he or she can use. That does encourage players to at least try all the characters. The controls are smooth, and easy to learn, but of course are alittle "floaty" and different from standard kart games, because, after all, you are *flying*. It's a little like F-Zero.
There are some problems, though. First, the game is way too short. Sure, it packs a lot of two player fun, especially in battle mode, but the one player challenge is over way too fast. I beat all the circuits in about an hour and a half. After that, there's a mirror modes, a secret racer, trying to score your best time, etc. But the the thrill is over pretty quickly. One feature that the oiginal SMK had that, to my knowledge, no kart racer has had since was the way that record times were saved for courses WHILE you played the various Cup races. In all Kart games since, the records are stored seperately and only are affected by what you do in time trial modes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual kart racer April 26, 2001
From the swamps of Naboo to the planet of Corusant SWSBR covers the star wars universe. Lucas Learning has produced the most innovative kart racer since DKR on N64. All nine of the levels have plenty of eye candy like on Tatooine there are sniping Jawas on the cliffs, dewbacks and the impressive sandstorms. Also there is the option of driving all the courses backwards. I really liked the level designs instead of the usual one huge short cut per map there are several small ones and multiple routes per map. There are nine drivers to choose from(beat the galaxy circuit with Anakin to unlock Darth Vader) and each drives and handles differently. Also each character has thier own taunts and special weapon like Darth Maul throws his lightsaber and Obi-Wan can levitate the closest racer. There are five different modes of play. The Arena mode lets eight racers compete in a free for all on one of four different arenas. The controls were very easy to get used to. You just have to learn over 25 different gadgets to use along the way. So what are you waiting for pick your racer and blast Jar Jar into oblivion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun in multiplayer mode! August 4, 2002
When you think of Super Bombad Racing, think Mario Kart ... but instead of little cars, you have cool little Star Wars ships. And the drivers are the various characters - with giant heads! It is TOO cute, and great fun.
There are the regular race courses, where you learn how to drive each character. They're all a bit different from each other, with their own strengths and weaknesses. Try to get through all the courses to unlock secret options and characters.
Like most of these games, though, it really gets fun when you bring on another human. Suddenly you've got a little Darth Maul chasing after a little Yoda, blasting away! With four players it gets even more hilarious.
A relatively short game on the single-player side, but endless fun with friends and family!

5.0 out of 5 stars You CAN be Boba Fett!! May 23, 2001
By Bobbert
I loved this game ... mind you, I'm a huge Star Wars fan and most likely a little biased. Rent this one before you buy ... I loved it when I bought it, and it's growing on me more and more ... I've unlocked the Galaxy Circuit, the Mirror Mode (which will add challenge down the road when the regular coarses get too easy - it lets you play them flipped around ... what was on your left will now be on the right, etc..), and I've unlocked Darth Vader .... and just today I found out about the Cheat codes to play as Boba Fett in his little Slave I ... and there's also a code to ride in a Trade Federation AAT (Tank) ... and a code to make all the racers into Kaadus (the Gungan's steeds) Which just breathed more life into a game I was still having lots of fun playing ... now, if I can only get some friends over to play the multiplayer mode?!
PS: Win the Galaxy circuit as Anakin to unlock Darth Vader
Those cheats:
Boba Fett At the main menu, enter Square, Circle, Triangle, Circle, Square. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear saying that Boba Fett has replaced your racer. When you start the game, you will be racing as Boba Fett.
Trade Federation Tank At the main menu, enter Circle, Triangle, Square, Circle, Triangle, Square. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear to confirm entry. When you start the game, you will be playing as a battle tank.
All racers are Kaadu At the main menu, enter L1, R1, L2, R2. If you entered the code correctly, a message will appear to confirm entry. When you start the game, all racers will be Kaadu.
PPS. Just put the code in again to cancel each of the codes ... hopefully there will be more of these codes down the line?! ... Qui Gone? Han Solo? Aurra Sing? Jango?!
