Formula One Championship Edition (PlayStation 3)

 

Given how long it had been since the last Formula One game was released in the United States, many felt that Formula One Championship Edition would never see the light of day in North America. Perhaps it's just here because the PlayStation 3 needed...

I am in no way, shape, or form, a sports person. I do not like to watch them. I do not like to engage in them. And I do not like to play them in video games. I will admit, though, that I do have a soft spot for racers. Mostly I go for street racers...

The Conclusion: I didn't expect to like Formula One nearly as much as I did. But the game is very well balanced, with enough leeway for beginners, and an excellent set of advanced controls for veterans. The game isn't perfect, with the lack of...

Formula One: Championship Edition

 

One thing I must say despite all this praise is that even F1 fans will get bored of this game. This is the type of game that you'll keep in your collection and never trade in and you want to know why? Once the F1 pre-season hype gets going again you'll...

Graphically awesome; Unbelievably realistic gameplay; 22 V8's roaring away, what more can I say

Online is too bland; Last year's teams and drivers; Driving aids can be a tad over the top

Overall this game is surprisingly good. You miss out on the new teams, new paint schemes and new drivers (which is even more disappointing considering how good Hamilton, England’s latest ray of hope, is at racing in these awesome vehicles). But you get...

One of my favorite games in the early days of the original PlayStation was Formula 1, developed by Project Gotham Racing creators Bizarre Creations (one of the company's first games) and published by Psygnosis. Although I've never been a big fan of...

The game is stunning, with insanely detailed car models, amazing course detail, and slick menus ; One of the better online racing experiences, which can get pretty intense when you have nearly a dozen skilled human opponents battling it out ; Deep and...

No offline multiplayer modes ; The graphics are a little too sterile ; Another PS3 racing game that fails to properly utilize Sixaxis motion technology

Formula One Championship Edition is definitely a niche title, but it fills that niche very well. It’s focus on true simulation racing, combined with a deep career mode and fun online multiplayer, makes this one of the better games to be released for...

Racing games have always been a big part of the video game industry, whether they are games based on real sports, or if thy are just fictional racing

I really do hope that people go out and try to pick up a copy of this game and really see what a great racing title it. Just to reiterate, I am not a huge racing fan, however Formula One Championship Racing really made me get into F1 racing more than I...

As a primarily PC-based racing sim fan, I have not had a new championship season made available to me since the 2002 season modeled in EA Sport's final version before Sony acquired an exclusive license with Formula One. I won't bore you all with my...

The collection of innovative features and seriously sweet eye candy in Sony's Formula One Championship Edition set a new standard in console-based racing games. If you can master the fun, new SIXAXIS control scheme, you're in for an enjoyable and...

F1 fans, your PS3 purchase is justified. Everyone else, here's your best chance to start liking F1 racing.

Formula One racing in beautiful hi-def; great driving mechanics; plenty to do

No force feedback; F1 still isn't very accessible; 11 person online cap

Formula One: Championship Edition

 

Although it never reaches the levels of cultural saturation of NASCAR in the United States, to the rest of the world Formula One is the pinnacle of racing. Representing the pinnacle of speed and precision engineering, it's a demanding sport that only...

Unparalleled realism ; Controller tilts like wheel! I cannot emphasize that enough ; Does a good job of trying to ease in new players

but it's still very much made for people who know what they're doing ; The whining engine noise cuts to my very soul

It's an astounding racer that offers a lot of depth and reward to dedicated players, but might scare away the novices.

Formula One Championship Edition Review for the PS3

 

Viva la France!

High-quality visuals and FX; Complete online experience; Properly challenging; User-assistance features

Slim sound variety; Hyperrealism is boring

I was extremely suspicious when I started Formula One Championship Edition. Here in America, we watch NASCAR and race real cars. Europe makes European cars, like little Fiats that two people can lift and throw. F1 is Jean Girard, sipping tea through...
