If you like fantasy street racing etc... this game is not for you. This game is simulated F-1 racing with all the elements that you would expect in a real F-1 race. Personally I liked the game; however, I would not expect much of the younger crowd to have much of an appreciation for this title.
I have played every F1 game to date and I can honestly say that this is the best of the best. If you go with the realistic settings you get everything including that crash out factor. You must be patient and maintain your concentration. The pit stop is unique in which you have to interact with button pushes instead of just siting and waiting for service. You can't go wrong here.
