Balanced And Fun - Best Bet For Now

Robert Rennie, Amazon
6 April 2007
  • 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.

  • 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...

Alfredo Campos Mejia, Amazon
17 January 2004
  • 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

jaylr, Amazon
21 October 2003
  • 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.

GPC vs. F1 2002

M. Tieck "transfranz", Amazon
19 April 2003
  • Summary: Grand Prix Challenge ist sehr empfehlenswert! Gegenüber F1 2002 (EA) ist nämlich das Fahrgefühl wesentlich besser! GPC kommt einer Simulation näher, das Beherrschen der Fahrzeuge ist echt schwierig und sorgt somit für langandauernden Spielspaß. Auch die KI ist super. Vergleicht man dieses Formel 1-Spiel mit dem F1-Spiel von EA, fällt auf, daß nicht so sehr auf Schnick-Schnack gesetzt wurde wie z.B.

Die erste richtige F1-Sim für die PS2

M. Tieck "transfranz", Amazon
6 December 2002
  • Summary: Auf den ersten Blick wirkt Grand Prix Challenge im Vergleich zu den F1-Titel von Sony und EA eher spartanisch: keine animierten Boxenstops, keine umfangreichen Optionsmenüs, weniger Einstellmöglichkeiten für das Wagensetup ... Doch da wo echte Simulationsfans von den bisherigen F1- Spielen enttäuscht wurden, zeigt GPC seine Stärken: 1. STEUERUNG: Drei Schwierigkeitsstufen stehen zur Auswahl.
