Another F1 meeting where nothing exciting happens

Find F1 just too boring to watch? Don't worry - if this simulation is anything like authentic, then the people taking part aren't having any fun either. Perhaps that's why they all drive so fast - they're just desperate to get it over with. Whatever, this really very attractive game is hand-wringingly dull.... read more

"I just spent the better part of the past 3 hours screwing around with this game, without even realizing how the time flew by. Boring? No oversteer? Hey, how about you guys over at PSM3 and Edge stop giving us journos a bad rep? Play the game before you trash it in your review, call it boring and then claim that you can't induce oversteer.

Yes, you very well can induce it, and it's as simple as tweaking some suspension components, raising psi pressure in rear tires, using hard tires, turning off anti-lock brakes, setting traction to 0%, and turning off the stability control. You know...real-life kind of adjustments that would make a real-life RWD car react the same way? If you weren't up for the task of writing a review on a simulation game, then have some qualified freenlancer do it instead.

Take a turn too fast, and you'll go spinning. Time it just right, and you'll hug around the bend. Get a little overzealous, and the rear will crack for a split-second - and this situation can go either way, all depending on the angle of the turn. I mean, really...all of the adjustments are there for you to fiddle with.

It all comes down to whether or not you know what you're doing - and I'll wager that PSM3 and Edge don't. Start hardening rebound rates for more oversteer and bring the toe inward for razor sharp turns; there is a Gran Turismo-load of customization options here, do with them as you please. It took me some time to get the cars to break traction, but at least I tweaked around long enough to find the proper way, before writing the game off. Ironically, as I write this I even see a tip displayed that's telling me to 'oversteer in order to get around a turn easily, but risk spining out'.

The sense of speed is flipping sensational. You'd have to be a rotten vegetable to call this game boring: I just spent 3 hours driving around by myself and toying with the cars. Driving around on two tracks, no less: Monte Carlo and Shanghai. The lighting is ridiculously detailed - a little bit distracting when you first start, but that's just part of the realism.

The visuals of the finished product slaughter that of the demo. The gorgeous lighting, the brand new textures, the enhanced reflections, and the silky framerate make the demo look like child's play - there's no two ways about it. If you were at all not impressed with the way the demo looked, throw it all away - this is seriously one of the best looking next-gen games on the market."

F1 review not very good.

Postby User removed » 24 Feb 2007, 17:33

I would have to agree with the above poster and his reviews of the game. If you really don't know about F1 then please don't review F1 games. Do you homework next time. This game deserves a better score than this.

this is a clear example of a critic being given a task to review a race sim yet he doesnt know a thing about it!! Hey PSM3, since the learning curve was indeed too great for Steve Williams to bear, next time leave him the task to review more simplistic games such as motorstorm...better yet, i'd be questioning his abilities to construct any meaningful review!!

Gee, there sure are a lot of upset, unusually zealous F1 fans here. It's almost as if they're disgruntled Sony employees, pretending to be genuine punters to save face, despite the fact that the new F1 is, unequivocally, not very good.

I love a lot of games - some to an absurd degree - but not once have I ever compiled every review score one ever received and used it as ammunition on websites to defend its merits to, well, nobody in particular.

This really is the most pitiful attempt at website 'infiltration' I've ever come across.

You're defending a tired, needless re-tread of a stale old genre nobody cares about anymore with the same kind of demented fervor as people campaigning for human rights in third world countries.

You see-through nutbag.
