Pro Faithful to the Star Wars universe
It's faithful and atmospheric.
Pro Play requires balance
While racing ones Pod Racer can get damaged (and often will), this means that the player needs to perform repairs while racing, but of course this slows one down, which means one needs to balance slowing down in a race and risking blowing their pod up by receiving too much damage.
Pro Economy management adds another variable to the game
Choosing what parts of the pod to upgrade at what points in the game, what help to hire and what vendor to choose for parts adds a rather interesting management element in-between races that affects races themselves. And depending on how the race went some money can be saved that would otherwise be spent on repairs.
Con Aged visuals
While impressive at the time of release in 1999, the game does not look too good by today's standards.
