The Blockade Runner Plays: Star Wars Demolition (PS1)

Ryan plays a few rounds of Star Wars Demolition, a Twisted Metal-style vehicular combat game released on the Playstation and Dreamcast in November of 2000, in our latest Blockade Runner Plays video. This genre was all the rage at the time and (as Ryan discusses in the video) Demolition looks pretty good even if its gameplay is just so-so. Check out the video for the crazy story featuring Jabba’s new, even more dangerous podracing replacement, cool character cameos, and a chance to see some wild Star Wars death race mayhem.
