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…
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.

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.
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.
As you would expect, there are a number of different modes you can play in, depending on how much time and effort you care to expend. Either stick all the available assists on and jump right in to a race, or embark on a full career (where you have to progress through the ranks from test-driver to a regular seat within a better team). With all assists off, however, this game presents an almighty challenge. The race physics are the most sophisticated in the series history, and the algorithms for tyre wear and fuel consumption are exceptionally well done. AI for other drivers is much better than ever before.
The tracks are beautifully detailed and accurate, but it is the sensation of speed that this game delivers that makes this game so much fun to play. The motion blur and slightly shaking of the 'camera' as you race really adds sensation to the action.
You can use a wheel with F1CE, but there is no real force feedback (FFB), which is a disappointment to anyone used to full FFB support in PS2 games such as GT4 for example. The game supports the tilt function of the new PS3 Sixaxis controller for steering, which works well, even if it is not entirely suitable for serious driving.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
