F1 Race Stars

 

Is there any clearer sign of a generation’s twilight than the return of spoof and parody? Codemasters Racing’s Formula 1 titles have been one of the undisputed successes of recent years, injecting a sense of speed that only arcade racers have been able...

The ideal game for Pastor Maldonado fans, then.

I have to admit it: I was intrigued when I first heard of Codemasters' F1 Race Stars, which was presented to me as an arcade style Formula 1 racing game. I'm a more-or-less fan of the F1 2010 - 2012 series of sim-cade games - they aren't quite as sim...

Owning the exclusive F1 license offered Codemasters the opportunity to make a game that would be fun for adults and kids to play together. Unfortunately, Codemasters took a different direction and built a game only suitable for kids who don't have a...

Formula One is a pretty serious sport, so the cartoon stylings of F1 Race Stars is something that's surprisingly out of the ordinary. And although the kart racing sub genre has taken a variety of shapes from the grandaddy of them all, Super Mario Kart...

There's not exactly a slew of karting games on consoles these days, so F1 Race Stars is a welcome addition to the genre and a wonderfully crafted little racing game in its own right. As a 4-player party game, F1 Race Stars is pretty much indispensable....

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 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

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...

F1 Race Stars Review

 

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...
