THE GOOD: Fair grafics, tracks well done, good in-car view.
THE BAD: Poor competition. AI cars too slow into and out of corners. AI cars are more like Bumper cars, too much hitting. AI cars changing lines and blocking into a corner, Please use classic lines into and out of the corner and use braking and acceleration as the means of holding the player in check, as does Seirra's NASCAR series.
The AI cars need to be adjustable for speed as in Sierra's Nascar series. If you are going to make a F1 SIM plase make a serious one. If it is necessary to make the game play for a broad base of players, please include the hardcore racer. The cars have a small handling problem you get understeer, but no oversteer and there is no ajustment for that. Hope to see a better game for the 2002-03 year.
THE GOOD: The graphics are very decent and equal the frame rate from such games as F1 2001 (the EA version). But it the graphics can still be better. Games as Gran Turismo 3 and ‘Le Mans 24 hours’ have way better graphics but I think that their Formula One 2002 will have better graphics. This game isn’t that original but it was the first good race-game on the playstation 2, the dream machine.
Like in games as Metal Gear Solid 2: the Sons of Liberty and Final Fantasy X (the European version) there is an extra disc. This disc contains real video footage from BBC with the original commentary of every race including the Grand Prix of Belgium. As extra this can count but I’ve they had added an arcade mode, the game would be even better.
The sounds in the game are really life like: the sound of the engine of every brand is different and resembles the real thing. The commenter doesn’t tell only about you, he tacks about who as car problems, who’s at the lead and such things. The game as all the ...
