F1 Race Stars – Review (360, PS3)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: There’s no denying that Codemasters is full of love for Formula One. Buying the F1 licence, rebuilding the franchise into a real winner on this generation’s consoles and transforming a somewhat sterile proposal in terms of gameplay to something that can cater for all comers put the F1 franchise on the top of the podium. So, it initially came as a shock when the now renamed Codemasters Racing announced a karting game in the form of  F1 Race Stars.

  • Conclusion: "Release and then hold RT to charge KERS!
  • Pros: That first time Fernando Alonso enthusiastically shouted "Alonso!," like an F1 Mario.
  • Cons: When Fernando Alonso kept enthusiastically shouting his name, like an F1 Mario.

  • Summary: Technically there’s not a whole lot wrong with this game. I just don’t really see the need for it. If you’re big into F1 and kart games then have at it, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Conclusion: Not fast-paced enough for a kart-racer and too crazy for F1, the handling of the cars is nicely done but damage and an inability to win on skill alone ruin a game that had so much potential. Hit; The cartoony feel makes this a light and enjoyable experience. Miss; Not having the ability to do a co-op career that counts for both players is a huge mistake that sorely dents this title. Need; A better balance when it comes to damage. It can be a frustrating mess.

  • Excerpt: On the heels of its third great F1 sim , Codemasters has switched gears and made an over-the-top Mario Kart –style racer featuring the current Grand Prix season’s drivers and teams. Cuteness aside, the concept of racing cartoon cars as bobble-headed caricatures is a strange idea worsened by frustrating power-up–centric gameplay mechanics.
  • Pros: + Full licensing with all 24 drivers (e.g., Hamilton, Alonso) and 12 Formula One teams.
  • Cons: ? Where are past F1 champs like Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell?

F1 Race Stars Review

  • Summary: " F1 Race Stars " looks amazing. The art style is great, and the karts are cool too. The tracks look amazing, but are far too long. The pace is too slow, and the game is still too much like actual F1 to make it a fun karting game. Too much of the game is spent racing, rather than using the power-ups or modifiers that bring the game alive. Coupled with races and championships that are far too long, and you end up with a lot of style over substance.

  • Excerpt: F1 Race Stars is a fun and moderately challenging kart racing game, its beautifully created tracks, imaginative power-ups, and the ability to drive as any one of your Formula One race star heroes combine to deliver a solid racing experience. Yet oddly enough it’s these very same Formula One traits that also take a little away from the title too.

  • Excerpt: Is there any clearer sign of a generation’s twilight than the return of spoof and parody? Codemasters Racing’s Formula 1 titles have been one of the undisputed successes of recent years, injecting a sense of speed that only arcade racers have been able to capture. Given theirs and the sport’s success since 2010, stepping sideways and reaching out to a new audience was somewhat inevitable.

  • Excerpt: The usually austere F1 license and the wackiness synonymous with kart racing are disparate genres that, just like that Emo chick at school who hooked up with that sports-mad bogan, you never expected to get married together. Does the world of Formula 1 racing games, primarily focused on authentic simulations, make for a good partner or is an acrimonious divorce on the cards?
