Review: Send in the professionals

If you peer into the cockpit of any motorsport racer or lightweight track day car you'll probably notice recurring themes: no carpets, stereo, comfy leather seats or electric windows - a place devoid completely of the pampering gizmos you'll find in your average motor. But as pleasant as these creature comforts may be, at the end of the day, they do nothing to improve the driving experience; they just slow you down.... read more

I'm really quite tempted to pick this up. Looks pretty solid, the reviews have been fairly positive and I quite fancy a more challenging racing sim.

Should fill the wait until Forza 3 comes out, anyway.

Hopefully he'll not be back, he was only trying to start arguments.

I really hope the much rumoured demo for this appears soon. I am funny about my racers and really a demo would help.

CVG are having a laugh giving this 8/10 having played the game I found it to have no redeeming features what so ever.

Graphically its almost painfull. The framerate stutters as you go round corners along with ugly page tearing. Which wouldn't be so bad if the graphics were nice and shiny, but they are shoddy at best and lack any sort of polish.

Driving down a flat stretch of track your car all bounces about like its on a cobbled street. And every race is as much of a tedious chore as the next.

Games this bad are acceptable early in a consoles lifespan, but its way to late in the day for this tripe to be considered anything less than an insult.

You can pick up Forza 2 for £15 or less, there really is no reason to waste money buying this train wreck.

Well I want to know what exactly the reviewer was smoking when he played this game, because if it makes the game seem better then I want some.

I would have also thought that since this is a "simulation" the career mode would have the option to set race length (I dont know any real race series that only does 3 laps), practise sessions and qualifying length.

Above all though the game just feels dead. There's no "feel" to the car. It probably is very realistic, but it doesn't have any sort of feel to it... Perhaps that's because I'm playing it with a joypad... But even aside from that the game is very unimpressive.

Lets hope Codemasters F1 game is better.
