Excerpt: "I bought this new in 2002, so now it is quite old. Even so I still play it occasionally as racing at such high speed is always fun. The only thing I usually play on it is a full grid race on my own or with someone else. With umpteen cars on the track at the same time, it makes the experience much more fun, although if you want to play it with more than It can be very difficult to get gold on the challenge mode, and i find it too frustrating to ...

Summary: For a first F1 game on a new console, F1 2002 has a lot to be admired - but has it's problems too. A real plus for the game is it has the current championship season cars, tracks and drivers - the first F1 game to achieve this. After this, the first thing of note is the menu system, which is very slick, and easy to use - as we have come to expect from E.A. Sports titles over the years.
Summary: If you are a die hard f1 fan then this game might not be for you! However if you are a casual gamer and you want some high speed racing then this is a must buy. It has some good features like domination where you have to win every race in the season and team-duel where you have to beat your team mate. It also has your full/custom championship modes as well. It also has all the latest drivers and teams like Toyota and Renault.The graphics are pretty good.
Summary: Played this last night for an hour or so. I am quite impressed. Graphics are good and the sound ain't bad either. The roll hoop view is brilliant. You see the drivers head moving around when it goes over bumps, around corners etc. Handling seems pretty good. Loads of different modes and challenges and it features the 2002 teams and drivers so it's bang up to date. You can race in Hungary with the new track before the drivers actually do!!
