Formula One 06 on is all about speed, competition and fast-paced action. If you're a novice, switch on the improved driver and racing aids to race for fun, or turn them off for a full length Grand Prix experience if you're a Formula One professional. Formula One 06 features the ability to Network Play between PlayStation 2 and PSP. This means players can now compete online across platforms to see who the fastest Formula One 06 racer is. In other words, if you own the PlayStation 2 version of the game and your friend owns the PSP version, you can still compete on the same circuit! For the first time, the experienced Studio Liverpool development team has been hard at work on both titles, to ensure the 2006 games remain innovative and fresh.

I cant really understand why people compare ps2 versions to psp version as its obvious of the limits of the psp compared to a major console so you have to go with the hardware you have and the game formats for it. (it cant be too long before sony release a psp2 as the psp/ps2 same game comparisons can sometimes be very dire indeed!)
However, formula 1 06 is a great game with great speed and graphics, superb sound and totally addictive, and like all f1 games, sometimes very frustrating. The circuit backgrounds are outstanding, of course at monaco, but also at cucuits like china where the main stands have all the detailed space age grandstands visible.
Its a bit crazy that i became world champion in my first season at super aguri and also a shame that winning the title after hours and hours of playing isnt rewarded with even a little cut scene (im pretty sure we all like completing games partly to see what the gamemakers have in surprise for us at the end).
Like another reviewer said, its crazy that the medium difficulty setting is 4 seconds quicker per lap and i cant honestly see me qualifying any higher than 21st in every race. Also if you change to a 'top team' the speed or handling of the car is no diferent to the bottom teams so theres no incentive to take up a contract offer from a top team as it offers no incentive.
Its in my top 3 psp games so far, maybe my favourite as im a huge fan of driving games.
Buy it, you will probably get it at agood price now too!
This certainly isn't Burnout or Cars which are pick up and play. With this game it really is a question of practice makes perfect. One mistake ( as in real F1 ) and that's it.
When I first played it I found the game very frustrating, but it is also strangely addictive. You're always coming back to just try and shave a few milli-seconds off your best lap time and I think that's what really makes or brakes a game. Do you really want to have another go?
Buy or not to buy?
If you have the time to put into the game you'll be well rewarded. If you haven't then you're best sticking to the likes of Ridge Racer or Burnout.
For beginners there are a number of features to help set your car up, to take the right racing lines and help braking and steering. For advanced players you can switch these of and set your own car up.
Overall the game isn't the best F1 game, but as a single player game for the PSP it can be fun to play. If you liked last years PSP F1 game as a single player game then I would recommend it.
If there was a problem it would be that as you move up a level from easy to medium or medium to hard the drivers go 4 seconds quicker than the level you have just been on. So if you were a second quicker your know three behind.
A great game and most defiantly worth buying.
The career mode is also great as you start of earning a test drive and then progress into getting a race drive and so on. The detail on the tracks is all in the game and there does not seem to have been any compromise for it being on the PSP. I would have no problem recommending it to F1 fanatics, but maybe there are other game out there for people who just want the pick up and play type option, although this game does have that facility.
