F1 Race Stars PS3 Review

Console Obsession
27 April 2013
  • Excerpt: To many, Codemasters has done a wonderful job with their F1 simulators, although such games can be intimidating for certain players. F1 Race Stars is the answer for those who tremble by just the mere sight of seeing an F1 game on the shelf. With its lighthearted feel and approachability, this is one game that isn’t to be taken seriously.

  • Conclusion: F1 Race Stars is just another karting game that doesn't do nearly enough to make it stand out from the competition and in fact seems trite and lazy in comparison. The F1 license isn't enough to make it worth your time.

  • Conclusion: F1 Race Stars isn't a disaster by any means, but it certainly needs improvement. More importantly, it needs to take itself less seriously in some areas. There's still some fun to be had here, though. Check it out and see for yourself.

F1 Race Stars review

GamesRadar
14 November 2012
  • Excerpt: F1 Race Stars is a cartoonified version of Formula One motor racing, fusing real-life locations, teams and drivers with Mario Kart’s combat and F-Zero’s crazy racetracks. It’s hard to imagine it working given the sport’s reputation for regulations and technical minutiae, but with all the serious stuff stripped away and replaced with nonsense and charm, it’s as likeable and instantly enjoyable as Mario’s finest.
  • Pros: The simple pleasure of driving, The crazy and thrilling track design, It's family friendly, not dumbed down
  • Cons: The weapons aren't very exciting, Being told you're going the wrong way, Not recognising everyone on the grid

F1 Race Stars Review

CNET
14 November 2012
  • Summary: F1 Race Stars is a competent kart racer that fails to go that extra mile and, as a result, outstays its welcome sooner rather than later.
  • 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

F1 Race Stars Review

GameSpot
13 November 2012
  • Excerpt: 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

F1 Race Stars Review

VideoGamer.com
10 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Kart racing. An art largely perfected in 1992, yet still strangely alluring 20 years later. Try to name a terrible kart racer - it's actually pretty tough. A lot tougher than naming an execrable FPS or a risible RPG, anyway. Yet there's always a nagging malaise that accompanies the title cards of any new kart racer, but Codemasters' smiley-faced jaunt through a Willy Wonka version of the F1 world is immediately enjoyable, charming and approachable.
