Review: F1 Race Stars is Mario Kart meets Formula One

GameZone
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.

Expert Review

GameSpot
13 November 2012
  • Summary: Loop-the-loops, boost pads, and red "seeker" missiles are not the kinds of fodder you expect from a game boasting the official Formula One license and featuring the likes of Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, and Lewis Hamilton on its cover. Seeing these motor racing superstars inhabit a cartoon world that staunchly defies the rules of physics and fair play is, initially, equal parts bizarre and enticing.
  • Pros: Multiplayer can be fun, Some good weapons
  • Cons: The aggression of the AI leads to frustration, Tracks lack the necessary elements to make them memorable, Product placement sits uncomfortably within the cartoon world

  • 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

  • Excerpt: F1 Race Stars er en hyggelig lille kart-racer med en fed visuel stil. De fleste power-ups er desværre nogle tynde kopier og manglen på drifting hjælper ikke på gameplayet. Banerne er flotte, med smutveje, loops og andet lir, men når et løb varer op mod 15 minutter, så er de altså for lange. Er du en af dem som mener at Formel 1 er den eneste rigtige motorsport, så skal du hoppe på. For os andre findes der altså bedre alternativer.
  • Pros: Flot visuel stil og opfindsomhed i banerne
  • Cons: Kopierede og direkte dårlige power-ups, mangel på drifting samt lidt for lange baner

F1 Race Stars - Anmeldelse

IGN
16 November 2012
  • Summary: Codemasters er udviklerne bag fantastiske bilspil som Dirt, Grid og ikke mindst den superrealistiske Formel 1-serie. Desværre er netop udkomne F1 Race Stars ikke et af dem. F1 Race Stars er, som spillets titel antyder, et spil der tager udgangspunkt i Formel 1 licensen – men med et twist. Hvor F1 2012 fokuserer på at komme så tæt på virkeligheden som overhovedet muligt, er udgangspunktet helt omvendt for Race Stars.

  • Excerpt: Si algo caracteriza a Codemasters es su afán por ser fieles a una idea . Remontándonos un poco atrás en su historia, observamos que su mayor preocupación es captar la idea de un juego, la idea principal, y transmitirla. Ya vimos en 2002 como se adentraron en la distribución de Prisioner of War , de Wide Games , atraídos por el empeño en extremar la experiencia de sigilo. Tanto era así que si éramos descubiertos, a menudo, la partida había terminado.
