It doesn't just put you in an F1 drivers seat, it almost requires you to be an F1 driver. (Unknown Quote)
The graphics are sweet and the game play is realistic. Pick between single player, and multi-player. In the single player mode, the player can race a single race, a championship season, or go on to race a five year career. In the career mode, the player starts out by choosing their drivers name, appearance and nationality. Once that's done, they have to check their email every once in a while to see whose recruiting new drivers and whose offering the player a drive. When they start, they're at the bottom of the barrel and they have to try out for a drivers spot. Where the player ends up depends on how he or she does during the test. The outcome may be first seat, second seat, or test driver. During their career, they get other offers and have to make the decision on whether to stay with the team or move on to a better offer.
The game follows the same programs of a regular race weekend starting out on Friday. After initial set up is completed, the player moves on to Saturday for minor tweaks to the car. Saturday afternoon is reserved for qualifying which follows the standard three part program. Each of these pre-race events can be skipped but it probably shouldn't be advised. The race unfolds depending on where the difficulty level is set. Even on easy mode, getting knocked out of the race can happen in a heart beat, and I shudder to think what would happen in a difficult setting. The number of laps they run is also determined by the difficulty setting.
All in all, the game is great and the only complaint from some may be that even at easy level, the game is difficult, and even with computer aided car set up, the competition is tough. My beef, is that after winning three in a row, the top teams won't give you a test, citing your "Lack of experience". Oh well, we can't all be like Lewis. Short and Sweet. Probably the best Formula One game out there.
