Only partially works

Wayman Dunlap, Amazon

  • 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 ...

Had high hopes, but....

  • Summary: I pre-ordered this game having read all the reviews of EA's F1 2002 (which I don't own) talking about the great graphics and depths of tuning you can do to the cars. So I ordered this game hoping for a great F1 simulator. Unfortunately, this game is very "arcade" in every respect. In Career mode, you can only tune downforce, gear ratio, and suspension I think, and that's it. Not exactly real life F1.

  • Excerpt: "...mistake of getting interested in F1 just as it started getting boring. All through the 90s I could have taken an interest, but no, I gotta start watching all the races when the outcome is basically a foregone conclusion - M. Schumacher will win, unless someone runs him off the track. Fortunately for you, gamer, you can change the course of history. Run a four year career, from 1999 to 2002, and see if you can end Schumi's dominance. The '99 season ...
  • Pros: Great engine sounds, good career mode .
  • Cons: Poor graphics, difficult gameplay, not a lot to keep you interested for long

F1 Career Challenge

  • Summary: Unless you are pepared to spend another 50 quid on a steering whell this game is crap and to be honest its still bloody impossible to control the car with a force feedback wheel, fully supported by the game, waste of money and yet another sham of a game created by EA the crappest games company ever, if i can help it i will never buy another of their products, the idea is great shame EA got to the contract for it, seeing as if my 2 year old brother got the contract he...

EA lose the plot

"skinplant", amazon.co.uk
19 July 2003
  • Summary: This game had all the potential in the world, given that EA have been turning out the best F1 games ever made, over the last few years. Sadly this isn't one of them. The controls are unresponsive, especially with regards to use of analogue setups, the 'other driver' AI is shockingly bad (I played a quick race at Monaco and almost all the field hit the wall on the 1st corner), and lastly the graphics are more arcade quality and very undefined.

twitchy

Acis, amazon.co.uk
16 July 2003
  • Summary: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who doesn't have a steering wheel accessory - the steering is incredibly twitchy with a regular controller in hand (its either straight ahead or severe turning, nothing much in between). Atmosphere is very good - though I think, at this stage, EA should give up putting scary, oversized heads on the ingame characters... Don't know what they're trying to do with that one, meld sport and horror into a new genre?

Jedes Jahr das gleiche!

Amazon
5 June 2003
  • Summary: Wieder ist es mal wieder ein "Top-Hit", würde EA sagen, aber wie in den letzten Jahren auch schon ist es einfach nur eine Widerholung des letzten Jahres. Nur das man jetzt 4 Jahre hintereinander spielen kann. Toll. Konnte ich früher auch, musste einfach am Ende einer Saison neu starten. Einziger Unterschied: Die Autos sehen je nach Jahr auch anders aus. Sonst kaum Neuerungen. Die Grafik ist aus dem letzten Jahr bekannt (noch gut).
