FamilyPC, September 1999

"The Phantom Menace isn't as exhilarating as Racer, but it puts you into the virtual shoes of four key players from the movie: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Queen Amidala, and Captain Panaka. You control the heroes' movements (running, jumping, swimming, etc.) and weaponry (lightsabers, droid stunners, and other gizmos) with cursor keys or a game controller. You switch characters as you reach various checkpoints, and also during skirmishes on the planets Naboo, Tatooine, and Coruscant.

"Though The Phantom Menace is based on the film, you're not locked into a linear plot; you'll find plenty of side quests that let you build skills and strategize your way to success. The battles are fairly clean, and no blood or guts splatter on the screen. Still, the object is to fight your way to victory by destroying battle droids, aliens, and others. You can also select the difficulty level, so novices won't get frustrated and experienced games won't be bored."
