Star Wars Episode I: Racer is a racing video game based on the podracing sequence featured in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Unlike the film, Episode I: Racer allows players to follow any racer they choose. The game features all of the racers and race course on Tatooine featured in The Phantom Menace. It also adds several new courses, some on Tatooine, others on various planets. Several single player modes, including a tournament mode, are available for play. It also features multiplayer, the format of which varies by platform. Jake Lloyd, who portrayed Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace, reprises his role in the game.
Episode I: Racer was received generally positive reviews from critics. Several major media outlets listed it as one of the top Star Wars video games. As of 2011, the game holds the Guinness record as the best-selling sci-fi racing game, having worldwide sales of 3.12 million and beating other series like Wipeout and F-Zero. Two titles featuring podracing were released after Episode I: Racer's release. Star Wars: Racer Arcade, an arcade version of the game featuring many similar tracks and characters, was released in 2000. Kinect Star Wars, which utilizes the Xbox 360 Kinect, also featured podracing as one of its game modes.
