Summary

Mario Kart meets Star Wars, and it's better then you would think.

The Good

As with all Kart games, this lives and dies in the multiplayer mode, which is great fun with four fellow Star Wars fans. The characters are fun, strange, yet easy to like (even Jar-Jar isn't as bad as before), with some great sound effects, a re-mix track of 'Duel of Fates' and an overall clean presentation...

The Bad

... which does have a few bugs here and there, but nothing that would totally destroy the gameplay. The main problem is how short the games life span is. The single player game won't last very long at all, and there isn't many new things to open up in the long run.

The Bottom Line

When you think about it, all Kart games, even Mario Kart (the one that started the whole trend) relies on the multiplayer aspect of the game. In this case, Bombad does the very same thing, and it still works well, even though it's a little short. But it really is fun to play, and worth a look, even just for a rental weekend.
