A quality F1 game and a solid racing sim.

  • Excerpt: I bought this game back in 1998 and at the time I wasn't a massive F1 fan. After playing the game the experience made me into a fan for life. The game provides an authentic F1 experience, with all the teams and drivers included and the driving aspect of the game is also top quality. Gameplay You can race individual Grand Prix either alone or split screen with a friend, or you can try for a full F1 season and become world champion.

  • Excerpt: In the absence of a new Formula One video game i've found myself dabbling with some of the old classic racers to try and get me hyped up for the already mouthwatering new F1 season. Not having a new F1 game to play feels strange when you consider that ten years ago you could play three or four different titles a season and is even more surprising against the backdrop of the most exciting period in F1 since perhaps the days of Senna and Prost.

  • Excerpt: OK, you're a formula one driver, you'reracing around various tracks. what else can you say about the actual game? This has fast become a favourite of mine though. The steering does take a bit of getting used to, at first I was coming off the track allover the place,even on the striaghts lol. You will soon master the steering though, and race 16 cars around various word racing tracks. My 7 year old loves this, and again is better than mommy at it!

  • Excerpt: Introduction ************* I first played the original of this game in 1999, this was my first serious racing game on the nintendo64, and I found this game and had fantastic graphics, the game play was very realistic and the sound was good and the handling was excellent. In 2001 I traded the original for the sequel I was hoping for an improvement on the original game.
  • Pros: Up graded statistics on drivers improved graphics
  • Cons: Not much of am improvement on the original, handling

  • Excerpt: From the outside it looks very good, an official licence means it is far more realistic over other games. It doesnt include Jacques Villeneuve, which to me is a letdown considering he's my favorite driver, other than that there are all the other drivers and circuits of the 1997 season. That's 4 years ago, so it is getting on a bit. There are all the usual modes of play as well as a challenge mode where you have the chance to change what happened in 1997.

  • Excerpt: The N64 has a reputation for excellent racing games (except Crusin' USA), for example: Beetle Racing, V-Rally and F-Zero X to name a few. F1 World GP is the best of them all. Stunningly addictive gameplay, excellent graphics and a realistic sound system all add to the superb atmosphere of F1 World GP. Unfortunately, it is surprisingly easy, but makes up for that addictive gameplay.
  • Pros: Great gfx
  • Cons: very easy

  • Excerpt: Around 18 months ago I went to an Argos near me and decided to pick up a game for my N64. It was the first game Id bought for around 6 months as I hadnt wanted to play anything but Goldeneye. However, i got home with F1 WGP and played constantly for 18 hours, getting used to the handling, which is amazing. I then woke up the next morning and began a season, which is very in depth. i decided to be patriotic so i chose Johnny Herbert.
  • Pros: great handling, perfect courses
  • Cons: now out of date

A decent F1 game

  • Excerpt: This game simulates the 1997 season. My first impression of it was that the graphics are really good and quite realistic - I've found this with quite a few N64 games. This is a very enjoyable game, although at first I found it quite difficult to control the cars. This was especially the case when I used the steering wheel, until I got the sensitivity setting correct.
  • Pros: There are lots of play modes to choose from (such as two player games, scenarios etc)
  • Cons: It is quite difficult to get the steering sensitivity right if you use a steering wheel

  • Excerpt: Hmmmm no one has written an opinion on this superb game?!? Well i'll be the first then. This game is very enjoyable, with a wide range of drivers and tracks and some bonus drivers and tracks it can entertain a person for hours. With Jacques Villenauve (sorry i don't know how to spell his name?!?) deciding that he doesnt want to be a part of the game, the driver that he would have been - D. Williams - is the key to the cheats.
  • Pros: A Superb Game
  • Cons: Th2 2 player mode

  • Excerpt: After a racing game for your Nintendo 64 but unsure where to go? Look no further, ‘cause F1 World Grand Prix is here. I’m a fan of Formula 1 but believe it or not, this was only my second F1 game (the first being World Grand Prix on the Sega Master System II). I saw it advertised for £10 in Electronic Boutique and I figured I’d give it a shot, if I didn’t like it I could always take it back.
