BAD

  • Summary: This game may have very good different abilities of how you can race. But, the graphics are terrible. Atari has made some great games in the past so when I went to Toysrus to get a game I chose this one because it was the newest edition and I thought that it would be the best yet. Unfortunently, I ended up playing it once and never played again. Since I have a F1 game from 2000 made by EA Sports which is excellent, I wanted to update it a little anyway.

  • Summary: I give this game 4.5 stars. My impressions after 2 weeks THE GOOD IMPRESSIONS AT FIRST: - Real and exciting F1 car sounds, when accelerating and when slowing down. - Great graphics, the cars look great and the tracks look very good, almost as good as GT3. - Magnificent replay. You can watch the race from the view of a TV camera and from any car. There are 6 views per car (including rear view).

After 6 months playing...

  • Summary: Addicting!! I play every day, I need it. And I have heard that if you have a logitech wheel the handling of the car is superb. From time to time I have heavy rain during the race, and the effect of the rain in your view and the water splashed from the other cars is so cool! Sometimes you have lightnings and thunders. The handling of the car, the feeling of the speed, the pessure of the race, now it?

Overall the best F1 racer on a console

  • Summary: This game is a nice surprise... but it's still not a simulation. Which is okay, since nothing can be a simulation using a game controller. The graphics and sound are wonderful. Not as good as GT3 but very close. There is no slowdown whatsoever with 21 cars ahead of you. The control is great. It is not nearly as touchy as the EA F1 series. Maybe this isn't realistic, but a little leeway is nice since the majority of gamers are using a handheld controller.

Balanced And Fun - Best Bet For Now

Robert Rennie, Amazon
20 October 2003
  • Summary: I've been a fan of F1 sims for a long time. I started with Geoff Crammond's World Circuit in 1993 and have played every sim that's come along since for both the PC and the Sony PlayStation. Some have come close to perfection, many have failed miserably. Grand Prix 3 was my most recent sim, and it certainly had its drawbacks. A locked frame rate hampered any sense of speed and a dated graphics engine made the game look poor - despite the great realism and good AI.

A very decent effort

  • Summary: To be honest, this is probably the best console F1 game ever made, not that thats saying much. Its not at the level of PC sims like the 'Geoff Crammond' series, but its definately worth looking at. For a seven-year old PS2 game the graphics are pretty nice, the tracks in particular have quite a bit of detail, and they all look genuinely different.

Everything you would expect from an F1 game

Ben Green, Amazon
14 February 2003
  • Summary: This game has pretty much everything that is in the average F1 game. The graphics are brilliant and so are the sounds. There is a large choice of cars and you have to unlock some of the tracks to race of them, which gives you something to aim for and gives you the motive to complete it. You get to choose the level of difficulty to race: Easy, Intermediate and Difficult (like most games). As I said before, it is everything that you would expect from an F1 game.
