Summary: yeah, as the tittle of my review says, it is just for fans... this game is alot of fun, the sound of the machines drives me crazy I LOVE 'EM... but sometimes "realism" in videogames goes to far... this game is like playing an actual F1 car, touch a single part out of the map and it fall apart to pieces (what really happens in real life) a game is supposed to be fun not stressing... anyway you can turn off the damage feature whenever you feel like it...
Summary: If you're a fan of sim racing games and a PS3 owner; get this. There currently aren't many choices out there for sim racing on the PS3, and this is one of the better ones. The pit stop system is a dumb mini-game where you hit buttons as fast as you can, but that's the only real complaint I have about the game.
Summary: If you're a F1 fan, this game is great. It's not 100% accurate, but captures many of the F1's particulars - standing starts, pits, fuel strategy, etc. The detail is awesome if you're on HDTV. Driving in the rain you see rain splash and rooster tails.
Conclusion: If Formula One is your thing this is the closest you can get to experiancing the real thing without leaving your sofa. Considering this is one of the first games released on the PS3 the graphics are great, especially the rain effects when racing, the tracks look good and the feeling of speed is present.
Summary: I wouldn't consider myself a fan of F1 racing, I'm more of a NASCAR kind of guy, but this game fills that craving to go fast on the Playstation 3. The graphics are incredible, but you won't get the best experience with them unless you have HDTV and a HD component for the PS3. The career mode for this game is rather difficult for a beginner, I put the settings on Medium and was unable to complete the challenges required to get a ride in the series.
Summary: The game was released incompleted, packaged just with the basic funcionality for F1 game. SOME flaws: 1) No replays, unless during the race, we can't get a save not even for one lap. 2) No Pace Car and poor managing the accidents events. 3) Pit stops are dummy, we need to press the 4 controler buttons, when it should be done for itself.
Summary: Unlike other reviewers, I'm going to base my rating on what the game offers, not what could have offered. Positives: 1 The game offers a bunch of driving aids for n00bs. 2 The graphics are fantastic even though the output is only 720p you will be amazed when the rain starts to pour down. 3 The tracks and the environment around them are perfectly detailed. 4 The presentation is 99% TV- like. Including displays, commentary, camera angles, etc.
Summary: Easy to get into the game as a beginner, but gets hard quickly, very technical. Graphics looks awesome with the rain effects. Real sense of speed and realism, especially with the career mode where you have to work your way up.
Summary: This game is fast! A good TV is best for this game because of the graphic's.I also was glad that my PS2 steering wheel works this game. I use the GT by Logitech. I just wish I had broadband for online play.
