Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
The most exciting Formula One season for a long time has spawned a console simulation to match with long awaited new online modes and some surprising PSP connectivity options…

The lowdown:
Owning the official FIA license means this game is the only one with all the real 2006 drivers, cars, teams, circuits and rules – but thankfully there’s more to this game than dull simulation. In fact this year’s iteration prides itself on being accessible to everyone with scalable driving aids for every skill level. There’s also a new online version for all versions, where you can compete in a full 18 race season with real human opponents. Other welcome new additions include taking the options of playing as chief engineer through the existing career mode and more subtle change such as computer driven cars that make believable mistakes instead of just robotically keeping to the racing line.

Most exciting moment:
Since the PS2 and PSP versions are coming out at the same time you’re able to transfer data between each, you can even race other players online on the other version, no matter which console they’re playing on.

Since you ask:
Although little is known about the PS3 version of the game so far Sony has demonstrated a way to connect the PSP to it and use the portable console as a fully interactive wing mirror – displaying exactly what is going on behind you in full 3D.

The bottom line:
The PS2 and PSP are in pole position for this welcome racing update.

Having not experienced the F1 feeling on a console for some time, nostalgia was one of my main reasons for picking up Championship Edition on launch day - and it hasn't disappointed. Graphically stunning and with enough gameplay and car mods to satisfy any fan of the sport, this game is a must buy for petrol-heads.

Jumping in with assists and racing line on is a great way to experience the joys of the game without having to worry about getting your braking perfect into corners. The graphics are amazing with realistic shadows and reflections adding that extra bit to the races - I've even found myself going out of my way not to spoil my cars paintwork with a slight nudge.

Turn up the heat by switching off assists and adding damage to create an amazing challenge to your driving skills. First corner pileups are frequent as you try to get that perfect braking point into the corner. Your car will take an extraordinary amount of damage (short of losing a wheel) and this adds that extra element as trips down the pit lane will cost you big.

Tired of taking on the all-be-it amazing AI? Why not jump online to take on racers from around the world? This definitely adds an extra element to the game and does a lot to break-up the linear quality of the one-player game. Rack up the points on specific servers and you'll place on their top drivers list, adding that extra competitive edge in an already competitive world.

Despite being one of the background launch titles for the PS3, Formula One Championship edition succeeds were others have failed - to really make us feel that Sony's next-gen system is here to compete.

I'm not sure why everyone is so negative...As a hardcore F1 fan i think this game is actually amazing! The way they have made everything so realistic and actually do a proper race weekend...Its incredible realisim...For people who say its hard without the assits, its not hard you just have to learn how to drive it doesnt take long! with the assists turned on all you have to do is press go, which in my eyes is incredbly boring!

The carrer mode is exelent, where you start off with a few trials for lower classed teams then you work your way to better teams and up the championship...

In my eyes this game is the only reasen i want a ps3, as i am a 360 owner...but i play this alot round my mates.

5/5

This game is generally very good. The graphics are superb, as are the sound effects. The driving physics are also pretty good most of the time.

The most enjoyable game mode for me is Career Mode and I play it with full race distance, flags and penalties on and damage on and I use 'Hard' difficulty. This is not only because I wanted a realistic Formula 1 experience but because 'Easy' and 'Medium' are just so easy that you can win every race in the worst cars. Things get challenging on 'Hard' which exactly what we want in an F1 game.

If you're like me and you want it as realistic as possible, you too will want penalties, flags and damage on but be warned - the game goes over the top. Firstly, if you want flags you must also have penalties as they're the same option on the menu.

If you cut a corner by a clear mile you'll get a time penalty (probably 6 seconds) which is fair enough. But you'll also get a 6 second penalty if you just stray off the course a little too much. If you go off because of an error on your part you'll also get a 6 second penalty. I'll give you an experience I had myself in Career mode; I was racing around the Sepang Malaysia circuit in my Super Aguri and I'd managed to fight my way up to a good grid position of 11th place. Sadly, I clipped a kerb slightly and this sent me spinning off the track. My car wasn't damaged, but because I span off I received a 6 second penalty. Before I'd even got back on the track I'd dropped to 16th place, I then had to travel round the track for 6 seconds with limited revs which in turn dropped me down to 18th place.

My race was effectively spoiled. In reality, there would be no penalty for this.

I have played many F1 games through the years, from the first F1 game on the PS1 through to F1 2006 on the PS2, the pinnacle of F1 games has been F1 97, even through the PS2 era, not one F1 game on the PS2 came close to it, now thought we have the the first 'next gen' outing on F1, to appreciate the graphical brilliance you must have a HDTV, but that is not essential.

You have the usual racing modes in the game 'time trail, single race, championship) but also a career mode in which you must take trails with the like of Super Aguri and Torro Rosso, if you are successful you will then become a 'test driver' in which you must test out various settings on a car and beat the lap times to succeed, if you do then you have a chance to be the 2nd driver and prove your worth, from there on its all down to you how far you go.

The game also features an online mode where you can raise against other racers online

The gameplay is excellent, you can customise virtually anything in the game, from weather conditions to breaking aids, each car is different, the Super Aguri struggles to get into top gear where as the Ferrari does so with ease, you even control the pit crew when you enter the pits

The weather effects are jaw dropping, when it rains you can hardly see what is happening on the track infront of you as the water blurs the full screen, you have to see it to believe it and the crash damage is fairly accurate too, getting round Monaco in one clean lap is very hard

a couple of small downsides, no safetycar (although every other flag situation is in the game and the commentary is a bit patchy
