Excellent

Awesome Game! Best F1 Sim Ever!

The best awesome F1 sim I have ever played. If you like F1 racing, you will love this.

Graphics are really cool. Everything looks extremely real 10/10 for the graphics

Gameplay is absolutely awesome as well - 10/10 there. The uncertainties of weather that impact the real thing, come out so well in this game. Within the session, the weather can change - while you are on the track, it can suddenly start raining, and then stop on its own. Adds so much depth to the strategy. One other cool feature is that if you want to play a 6 lap race, you can make it simulate the real 60 lap degradation on your tires and fuel - so even if you want to play a quick 10 min race, you can have all the pit strategy come into play.

The only place where its lacking is in having a split screen option for multi-player play on same console. If this had been there, i would have given it a 10!

Far from great. Has potential. No wow

I like racing games as much as anybody. This has a lot to offer the guy that like simulation racers but I just couldn't keep going with it.

My kids did not want to go near it for whatever that tells you. We have motorstorm and I know it is a different game but it is hard to stay with this game after all the action of a game like motorstorm.

Using the controller instead of a wheel for this kind of game may have something to do with it. I played GTR 2 for months with the wheel on the computer and that held my attention a lot more.

Again if you LOVE simulators don't need a lot of action than this game has a lot of potential... you can tune car with the AI help... a lot of things you can do in GTR2 you can do here. Graphic are OK game is OK. While I am on the subject of racers DON'T get the game Ridge Racer for PS3 is was terrible out of the box and got worse by the minute.
Hope this helps someone.
Have fun!

I like racing games. Unfortunately, this reminded me of Cart Fury. Graphics are pretty good, still someways to go to make them look better. Just takes too long to get to the actual races.
