Summary: Way to go, I finally find a game like NFS that you can race on your own as your career. I played it and it was thrilling. The graphics, game, cars, handling and others are also perfect. Support F1, buy it or you will be sorry.
Summary: I came to this game after a long drought from F-1 on the Playstation, since I used to have a PS1 Formula 1 game in the late 90's, I believe by Psygnosis. I picked F1 Career Challenge for PS2 up at half price, and while it's fun, I feel rather disappointed. I'm a little surprised if this is an official F-1 game. It definitely doesn't feel as sophisticated as I'd expect, 5 or 6 years after the last F-1 game I owned.
Summary: That kid who said this game is good. get the hell of the internet. The graphics are very poor. the F1 cars crash into you. Ea is the crappest games company ever. they never did anything bad on Burnout 3 whch WILL be released in september. F1 Challenge '99-'02 is an excellent game. when i have it. i will stick to that.
Summary: This game has great graphics! I, for one, love F1. I know the tracks, and LOVE to race. I think some people know nothing about racing so they think it's dumb, but it's a great game. The race car drivers do crash into you, that is really how it is in F1.
Summary: I bought this game understanding the idea behind it. Boy do I wish I had spent my money on another game. Sure the graphics are great, but that doesn't make up for the sad game play. As most everyone else has noted, the other drivers seem to be on a mission to crash into you, or they manage to get through a pit stop much faster than you do.
Summary: As a dedicated F1 fan, I was looking forward to seeing my name on then podium, as the game promised. But, here's the big kicker, you have to pass a series of tests to be eligible to compete. And the game will NOT remember that you passed the next to last test (a series of S-turns in the rain) so you have to take it every time you open it. (It'll take foreover to pass ...
Summary: The only disappointment I have in this game is the only 'slight' improvement in the graphics over F1 2002 (hence 4 starts instead of 5). Having said that, they are still indeed superb. I have read reviews about choppy frame rates, but I have only experienced smooth graphics. The only real draw of this over last year is the ability to create your own driver (i.e.
A quick attempt to get more money before F1 goes to Sony

Summary: EA has demonstrated the ability to master a sport when they put effort into it (NCAA Football, Madden, NASCAR Thunder, FIFA). So it's appalling (but probably financially successful) to see them slap out half-hearted efforts like F1 Career Challenge, Knockout Kings and the NHL and NBA series because they know they can cut costs and production because the hardcore fans will ensure a profit alone.
