Star Wars: Demolition was a shameful attempt to take the popularity of vehicular combat games like Twisted Metal and drag the Star Wars franchise kicking and screaming into the mix. The premise is that the Empire has shown up and banned podracing on Tatooine, and so Jabba the Hutt is forced to introduce a demolition derby-style contest to fill the void. But other than Star Wars character models, there’s nothing to indicate that Demolition takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Characters and vehicles don’t move and feel as they should, graphics are poor, even for the time, and game-breaking bugs caused players to get stuck in the environment just about every other round. In the end, Demolition proves that not everything is better with Star Wars attached.
