Summary: Wonderful Race Championship!!!!!! I love the Formula one series and was happy to find this. It was in perfect condition and worked great!!! I have played it over and over till the end, and then started over again,. I would recomment it to all ages and to everyone who enjoys race games!!!!!
Summary: I guess this is the "earlier" Formula game? I have two of these series and I actually for some reason like the game play of this earlier one better. I don't know exactly why, but something about it appeals to me more than the next/newer game. I play these both on PS3 and dont' play PS3 much anymore because I'm bad with a controller and mostly play PC games. But plan to buy the upcoming Formula 2010 PC version/is that what its called?/.
Summary: EA Sport did a fairly good job with this game. For a true F1 fan like myself I'm glad to have the opportunity to enjoy the difficulties of F1 racing without busting my bank account. The game has some really cool feature. Great graphics, cool sounds, and multiple angles. In addition, the color scheme of each team is authentic to the driver's gloves and helmets. In short, it's visually gratifying. It does have some shortcomes. The weather is either sunny or pouring.
Wish More PS/One Options Were There...But Very Good!

Summary: If you have not seen or played the standard Playstation version of this game, you would probably give it five stars! However, there are a few things missing from the PS/One version that I wish were there. Here are a few you might miss... - being able to check car settings during practice (see how much you are stressing the engine) - the commentary from your crew chief is missing (how much the car behind you is gaining, or come into the pits for new tires) - speed up the...
Summary: I have to agree with nismofreak. I am a die hard F1 fan, I have every F1 game made for playstation. The one for PSX to me plays better. You can see other drivers qualify and also see their split times. In this all that happens is the qualifying times show up. The grafics are outstanding but thats it. The engine noise is annoying, gear selection is poor. They also really need blow by blow commentary. this is what Psygnosis has in their F1 that makes it more fun.
Summary: The game offers stunning graphics and sound. You find all the cars, track and teams/drivers of the 2000 season. The player can select from single races, championship or arcade play modes. All in all I enjoy playing the game but I just wish it would be closer to reality in some aspects. The top speed is too low no matter how you set the car up you rarely get 300km/h. Also the gear box ratios are questionable: e.g. 1st takes to 160km/h.
Summary: This is an average F1 game, at best. The problem for those of us looking for an F1 sim is that the game plays like an arcade. However, for those looking for an arcade game, this game may be a little too much "sim." It's like EA couldn't figure out what they wanted from this game. A large positive are the very cool pit stop & stop-and-go penalty visuals.
Summary: I cannot believe the reviews of this game! For one, the PSX version of the game is so much better in terms of game play. I must admit that the PS2 graphics are stunning but c'mon! There is more to a game than just good looks. For one, taking the BMW-Williams, the car does not have the real top speed of the real F1 car. And when qualifying, you are not able to advance the time. Am I expected to sit infront of the game for an actual hour???
Summary: This is a great game. It met all of my expectations. But coming from EA Sports, it doesn't exceed them. The commentarist's voice is the same as FIFA 2001, which is kinda weird, but really doesn't matter. What I found surprising was the lack of commentary during the actual race. No commentary takes place when you take the lead, or crash, etc. That kinda left me with an empty feeling.
Summary: EA has managed to bring all of the excitement of Formula 1 to the playstation 2 in an awesome package- the graphics show incredible detail and doesn't suffer from the jaggies that show up in NASCAR when there's a lot of action on the screen. The controls are very responsive, and all of the teams/drivers are there. I wish there were even more customizability of the car options than the somewhat simple options that are there even in advanced mode...
