F1 Race Stars Review

 

Formula One racing is boring, right? It's just a bunch of overpaid adrenaline junkies driving around a dull track with little drama, isn't it? Doubters of the sport would have you believe so. These are the kind of people who dismiss Codemasters'...

Experiencing the game with friends. Splitscreen provides the real entertainment.

F1 Race Stars Review

 

F1 Race Stars is a competent kart racer that fails to go that extra mile and, as a result, outstays its welcome sooner rather than later.

Multiplayer can be fun ; Some good weapons

The aggression of the AI leads to frustration ; Tracks lack the necessary elements to make them memorable ; Product placement sits uncomfortably within the cartoon world

Race Stars also features an approximation of the KERS boost system from the sport. Corners feature sections where you can receive a boost on exit by pumping the right trigger, which fills a battery attached to the rear of your kart. The more you charge...

Codemasters takes on kart racing. Charming, quirky but is it worth picking up?

This is a new direction for kart racers. Find out how it fares in our full review.

Vibrant visuals ; Solid racing mechanics ; Local multiplayer is a blast

Tracks are far too long ; Career mode is tedious ; Power-ups are uninspired

The F1 season is now over, and after such an exciting battle for the championship, many fans will be making use of Codemasters' F1 2012 to satisfy their urge for open wheel racing ahead of the next season beginning in March. However, despite the...

The handling is a bit too harsh, and it's a little low in content for a full price point, but F1 Race Stars is fun, particularly in multiplayer, and the art style helps inject a sense of fun into the world's premiere motorsport.

Ever wanted to trap your favourite Formula One drivers in floating bubbles while racing down river rapids, then you dreams have come true with the release of F1 Race Stars. F1 Race Stars lets you race with any one of the 24 drivers from the 2012 grid...

Easy to pick up and play ; Good Variety of tracks ; A good take on a popular sport

Not a lot of voice variation ; Brakes don't really do anything ; Tracks slightly too long

F1 Race Stars (Xbox 360 / PS3) Review

 

Ever wanted to stick Sebastian Vettel and friends in go-karts…and watch the mayhem unfold? Finally, that day is upon you, whether you wanted it or not.

Family friendly content and controls ; Clever track design and environments ; Funny and impressive attention to detail

Not much variety across cars ; Sometimes confusing power ups ; F1 license a bit niche

F1 Race Stars is an unusual offering from racing legend Codemasters, but one thankfully here. This family friendly, F1 authentic go-kart racer is refreshingly clever and fun to play. Still, those looking for more variation in drivers and car types may...

After 3 successful simulation F1 games, is this karting based spin-off one step too far for Codemasters?

F1 Race Stars" looks amazing. The art style is great, and the karts are cool too. The tracks look amazing, but are far too long. The pace is too slow, and the game is still too much like actual F1 to make it a fun karting game. Too much of the game is...

A mix of classic karting action and high-octane F1 racing? That's just crazy enough to work.

If you’ve been hanging out for some wholesome fun, F1 Race Stars has got it - in bucket loads. Now all we need are some more tracks!
