Star Wars: Racer Revenge is a Star Wars video game that involves high speed racing. It is the sequel to Star Wars Episode I: Racer. The story takes place eight years after The Phantom Menace, with Sebulba wanting revenge on Anakin Skywalker. Unlike its predecessor, the player is unable to continue racing if they crash their pod. It was later re-released as a PS2 Classic for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Game modes[edit]

  • Single Play: This option allows the player race in one of three ways: Single Event, Practice, or Time Trial. Single Event lets the player race on any unlocked track. They can choose between 1 and 25 laps. Practice lets the player determine how many pods they go up against (from 1 to 8), and Time Trial is just the player against the clock for the best lap time.
  • Vs. Race: Race against other players on any of the unlocked tracks.
  • Tournament: In this mode the player races across 13 tracks, trying to get first while destroying as many rival pods as possible. Each race has a total prize for getting first, as well as Watto’s Bribes, which multiplies winnings by a percent, depending on how many pods were destroyed. Each race has a Par number of kills, usually 2 or 3, which must be completed in order to completely max out the player's pod's stats.
