5.0 out of 5 stars Closer to perfection, 17 July 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Formula One 05 (PS2) (Video Game)
'Formula One 05' is a clear step up from its predecessor, and I assume the game is getting near the point, where the console's capabilities start setting the limits for further improvements. This edition is a very realistic Formula One experience.
Handling is better, such as the car's reaction when going too early on the gas. Also, the driver's hand reaction in the cockpit view is excellent and very familiar from the television footage of the real thing. The somewhat odd helmet view from the '04 version is replaced by a much better full view, which makes driving more realistic and vision better. The options to customise your car, your different racing modes/sessions and the overall operation of the game, have become completely flexible, inclusive and logical. For instance, the screen display can be tailored with just the information you need - while maintaining as much vision as possible.
The only drawbacks I can point to at this point are 1) the damage dynamics that seem a bit too forgiving and 2) that there is no possibility of having pit communication and television commentary in career mode (as far as I can see).
It is a great game, and except for the minor issues above, I have a hard time seeing what Studio Liverpool can do better for the '06 version - other than updating the driver and team line-up, the tracks, the rules and whatever Mr. E comes up with.
PS! Excellent game intro with music by Muse
