F1 2009

29 June 2010
  • Excerpt: There is nothing quite like the thrill of Formula 1. Twenty cars racing at up to 200 MPH for up to two hours a single mistake enough to have any driver out of the race. Add qualifiers, tactics of tire changes and refueling and the occasional splash of rain and you have one of the most exciting spectator sports around. Sounds like a great basis for a racing simulation right? Well, many have tried but capturing the thrill of Formula 1 is hard.

F1 2009 review

18 March 2010
  • Conclusion: If the game didn’t suffer from the poor AI then this would be a welcome return to F1 racing on a console. The PS2 style graphics and slow frame rate when the screen is full could also be forgiven. So could the rather short 3 season career mode. But when you can’t race for fear of overtaking and being penalised, then what is the point of a racing game in the first place?
  • Pros: All the cars and drivers, very fun with the wheel
  • Cons: Poor graphics, poor AI, poor damage physics

F1 2009

16 December 2009
  • Conclusion: When it comes to content F1 2009 is immediately impressive. You can choose from single races, a three season career mode, various challenges and naturally competing against your friends. Alongside career mode, the challenge mode is the strongest part of the game, because challenges are both plentiful and varied. You can for example see how many cars you can pass in one lap, set different time limits, or try a course in the rain with dry weather tires.
  • Pros: Lots of depth in season mode
  • Cons: Extremely unstable controls, control assists make pit stops impossible, other drivers move as if on rails

  • Conclusion: Not without issues and will demand perseverance, but F1 2009 rewards with a pick-up-and-play F1 experience that effortlessly overtakes the competition on PSP

Test : F1 2009

12 October 2014
  • Summary: Les jeux de Formule 1 sont une denrée rare dans l'univers pourtant si prolifique des jeux vidéo. Tous les ans, il sort pourtant des dizaines de jeux de caisses, et dans le lot, où est la Formule 1 ? On sait que Codemasters a récemment racheté les droits d'exploitation de la licence officielle, celle qui nous permet d'avoir les vrais noms, les vraies courses, etc. Ce sont donc les seuls à pouvoir faire le bonheur de tou(te)s les passionné(e)s de belles mécaniques.
  • Pros: L'accessibilité, Des sensations de conduite simples et efficaces, Le contenu
  • Cons: Une technique mal optimisée, Une IA un peu agressive, Les commentaires tout nazes lors des courses, Une bande-son moyenne, La gestion des dégâts minable
