Excerpt: Being an avid fan of formula one since the mid 90's, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this game after owning older versions of formula one games. After putting in the disc and waiting for the game to load you are asked to create a profile. You are greeted with a very simple easy to navigate menu allowing you to choose what type of racing and settings you would like. Settings: AI - easy to hard Difficulty - easy to hard Abs - on or off Weather - dry, wet, forecast.
Summary: I doubt there is much more you can ask from a Formula One game. It even has the podium celebration scene! The only criticism could be that the tracks can someimes look a little dull. Apart from that, it's ace!
Summary: OK, Gran Turismo is a good driving game and so is Need For Speed. But hardly any other driving game gets better than this. What makes it so good is that not only can you race for yourself, you can make up your own F1 race and even better chose where the cars go. I have not yet won the World Championship yet but I have won the Arcade Championship. You can also win Time Attacks and (probably the most boring) single races.
Summary: The 2003 game is better than last year's 2002 version. It has the line up for the brand new season 2003. Hopefully will Coulthard or Montoya beat world champion Michael Schumacher!! In this game you can test out all of the cars of the new season!!! Or take time out to watch your own race! It has the new modifications for France and Hungary and thank goodness the old overrated fellows (Massa and the Japanese guy Sato) are out.
Summary: I like Formula One 2002 but Formula One 2003 is much better despite the facts that like 2002 there's no cigarette sponsors when there's supposed to be and the cars look a bit different from what they really look like! The Sauber car is supposed to have it's numbers 9 and 10 on the nose of it but it's a good game.
Summary: Listen to me. i was reading a customer review of formula one 2003 and i saw one by an xbox fan. It was by marc or some crap like that who reviewed 2004. All i can say is that xbox has crappy games compared to the ones for PS2. The race starts: 5....4....3..2.1. GO! and the xbox sprints away on Ea's F1 2002. but the PS2 takes the lead with formula one 2003. and formula one 2004 is out of the ps2. Ea sports F1 2002 for PS2 has gone out with the xbox version. OH NO!
Summary: I have Formula One 2002. which is great. but this is amazing. I have played a 1 track demo of 2004.Graphics: 10/10. An improvement to Formula One 2002. and even better than F1 2004's graphics. Gameplay: 10/10. In Formula One 2003 you can create a very own profile like in Formula One 2002. People like mark who said this game is bad. get off the internet. I shall recommend this game to everyone. BUY IT!
Summary: Formula One has great graphics, and fx sounds but poor tv commentary when you're actually racing but great tv com when watching. Plus this games is much harder and less realistic with a controller, and is much better with the Speedster 3, which is the official liscened steering wheel for the PS2. It's a great value for what it is, it's a beauty!!
Purrrfect! Sony get (almost) everything right in F1 2003...

Summary: Buying this game was a bit of a tough call after reading some of the reviews on this website. On the whole, people were hailing it a masterpiece - a racing sim so good that it really feels like you're controlling the real thing through your TV. Yet a few slammed it as a poor game, and these little doubts plagued my mind right until I put the CD in my shiny new silver PS2. And what a game! The cynics seem wrong in my view.
