Summary: I'm offering my opinion as someone who has spent a great deal of time getting 100% completion on both GT4 and NFS Most Wanted. I too agree this game is a must for F1 fans who already own a PS3 system. The audio and visual effects are outstanding (although I frequently wish I could adjust the engine noise level of my car to be louder than surrounding traffic), and the physics are close enough to please simulation fanatics, for the most part.
Summary: Just wanted to make sure that people are aware that the only way to play this game with other people is to play them online or through a "lan." There is no way for two people to play if they are in the same room with each other and you have one console with two controllers. Seems weird for a game to discourage playing with people with whom you might have a genuine relationship and to encourage playing with people who you are less likely to know.
Summary: This game is generally very good. The graphics are superb, as are the sound effects. The driving physics are also pretty good most of the time. The most enjoyable game mode for me is Career Mode and I play it with full race distance, flags and penalties on and damage on and I use 'Hard' difficulty. This is not only because I wanted a realistic Formula 1 experience but because 'Easy' and 'Medium' are just so easy that you can win every race in the worst cars.
Summary: Formula One 2006 was brilliant on the ps2, one of my favourite racing games ever. I can't understand why nobody seems to mention the unbelievably annoying glare from sunlight in this ps3 version though, as well as the darkness when there are shadows etc. You can't even see the track a lot of the time. That being said, the graphics are stunning. However, the gameplay isn't a patch on the ps2 version.
Summary: ok first the pros: pretty good graphics,not amazing or gt5 prologue levels by any means but they do the job. good sound,the engines are obviously sampled from the real thing and it shows. cons:2006 season so you are still driving old cars with some drivers that have left like shumacher and obviously you cant drive as lewis hamilton. worst of all though..
Summary: The one palyer on this game is astonishing. But i thought that this game would allow you to play proper multiplayer. Granted it has online multiplayer however its not as much fun as it would have been with 2-4 players with you. As a 1 player game it is a must buy.
Summary: Fantastic game! It really is, Graphically it can't be much better, especially if you have yourself an HDMI cable taking it up to the games maximum 720p resolution. But why only 3 stars? Well its more the in-game details more than anything. This game was released well after the end of the 2006 season and personally I wouldnt have minded waiting a few months for the new season so all details could be accurate (i.e. new car designs, drivers with their new teams etc.
