Best Formula 1 Game on Playstaion 2!!!, 3 Feb 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
F1 06 is great game and a large step forward over the poor F1 05.
Better features include...
...Much better and realistic crash damage where retirement can be caused by crashing into another car or wall and even a softer collision can result in damage meaning there is an incentive not to crash your car into objects unlike F1 05 where you had to deliberatly crash your car into a wall at high speed to even slightly damage your car.
...Formula 1 games have been boasting for years about punctures and blowouts but this is the first game that has actually had them!
...The car is much harder to handle in wet conditions and it does make a difference between having dry, intermediate and wet tyres and the graphics have improved in the wet with large amounts of spray coming out of the car ahead obscuring vision.
...With F1 05 in 'easy' difficulty mode you used to fly past other cars and easily qaulify on pole every time a mile ahead of all the other drivers. So the obvious thing to do then is to take the difficulty mode up to 'medium' but then you're miles off the back of the field. In F1 06 'easy' difficulty mode is still easy but you do have do work a bit and its still fun. And when you take it up to 'medium' dificulty mode you will probaly be demoted to mid-grid rather than the back.
...Career mode is much simpler and easier to use with the same professionalism.
...The graphics in general are a step up with engine failures more spectacular.
Overall F1 06 is a great game and I definetly recommend you buy it.
