Conclusion: The official licencing for this game is what is going to sell it, without the familiar faces and names I don’t think this game would have much of a leg to stand on. That’s not to say it’s a bad game because it’s not. Although it’s not exactly amazing either, at least not in my option.
Conclusion: F1 Race Stars isn't going to set you back a great deal of cash. The game retails at £29.99 on release, meaning this is a worthwhile investment as we head into the Christmas holiday. Codemasters has produced a remarkably upbeat karting title that puts the feel-good into a license that is often bogged down by its own intricacy. Throw in a few friends and an evening of online multiplayer, you might just have yourself a starting grid worth gearing up for.
Review: F1 Race Stars is Mario Kart meets Formula One
13 November 2012
Excerpt: I don't think anyone imagines there being a cute side to Formula One racing. When I think Formula One, I think of Italians with flowing hair that can charm a woman into a date and enjoys a fine Vino. And then I played F1 Race Stars. Codemasters Racing took real teams and racers from Formula One, made them cute, and went for Mario Kart -style racing over simulation. While it does make a pretty decent Mario Kart clone, that's the bad part, too -- it's a Mario Kart clone.
Excerpt: Modnation Racers , Mario Kart , Crash Team Racing; these are just a few kart racing games that are very well made and have an individual design that separates them from each other. Modnation Racers has its diverse online and community options, Mario Kart has excellent controls and memorable tracks, Crash Team Racing has brilliant weapons and superb track designs….. and F1 Race Stars has F1 karts.
Summary: Se você é fanático por Fórmula 1, com certeza vai gostar de controlar os pilotos reais e dar umas voltas descompromissadas pelas pistas de F1 Race Stars. Fora desse nicho, porém, o título perde boa parte de sua força, constituindo-se apenas como um game de corrida divertido, mas pouco variado e atrativo.
A experiência, de forma geral, é repetitiva e não prenderá o jogador ao controle por muito tempo.
Summary: Er is een simpele regel op Gaming Only: Jelle test de racegames. De echte snelheidsgames waar een goede handeling en stuurwerk een minimale vereiste zijn om goed te presteren op de baan om precies te zijn. Codemasters treedt nu echter in de voetsporen van Nintendo en SEGA en heeft een eigen variant binnen het kart-genre uitgebracht: F1 Race Stars. Het enige wat ik wil weten is of de game net zo goed is als Mario Kart en All-Star Racing.
Pros: Unieke power-ups..., Doldwaze banen..., Lange levensduur, Veel verschillende raceopties
Cons: ...sommige zeer frustrerend, ... maar helaas zo weinig, Moet het niet hebben van power-ups, Gemis driftknop
