proper emersion in racing,
This review is from: Formula 1 2009 (Wii) (Video Game)
i only own a wii in fact since my playstation 1 i haven't owned a console until this.The wii lacks in graphics we all know and they lean towards family arcade style games with some good regenerated games from the other platforms so you don't expect a lot for the adult market.
This is just the game to change all that someone finally decided to make the most of the wii's player interaction in a game that's clever and very addictive.It takes some time to get used to the steering and braking even on easy setting but then when your travelling at 180 mph through chicanes you wouldn't expect it to be easy. Sitting in front of a 42 inch screen with surround on and the front wheels in front of you, wheel in hand it really comes good, my heart gets racing anyway.
I won't pretend to know all about frame rates, graphics processors or next gen consoles etc all i can say is this game pulls you in because it drives like a race car looks like race circuit sounds like an fi engine and keeps you on the edge of your seat hugging the curves looking for some space down the inside or out breaking the car in front after hitting the kern button on the straight.......you get the picture i'm sure .
Don't expect to master this in five minutes or put it down for months.Its very very good you won't regret this buy in my opinion makes the most of the wii even changes how you think of it.
