Default Formula One Championship Edition

Wow... Just played the demo... I never liked F1 racing before but im hooked. This is a must buy for me. Its so fun, not only does it play fast but the learning curve in the game isn't horrible with the assitance on. I usually suck at these type of games so I started with it at max and then lowered it to only 3 of the 7 options even on. Basically Im stoping myself from locking my breaks, the weakest steering assistance and brake assistance.

This game looks amazing aswell, Now I know tons of purist hate Sony for making the F1 Series exclusive to them but they gotta give this version a shot. With all the options disabled it plays too realistically for me but it might be perfect for the ones that like that.

One more thing... **** YOU MONTOYA! I don't know how this guy is but he keeps beating me... Closest I got was 3rd place... he's always first... you ****er!

IGN scored it a 7.2.

Seems like they just sucked at the game.

I dont think they are fans of the type of game... they sound very bias against F1 more then acouple of times through the review.

Sounds more like they're just not a fan of F1 racing. They keep saying things like it's a good F1 game if you like that sort of thing.

Kind of like this quote:

As for the racing itself, there's a fair bit to like here, at least if you're a fan of technical racing.
Edit: Heh, guess |MaguS| agrees...and he beat me to the punch.

I just downloaded it, thanks for the heads up. I was surprised at how much better the graphics are on the PS3 over GTR2 for the PC. Monza looked great. I can't wait to check out the weather effects, they looked sweet in those videos. Does anyone know if F1 is compatible with a G25?

The review says it is...

Formula One Championship Edition features support for a number of Logitech racing wheels, like the Driving Force Pro and its premiere G25 racing wheel.

I'm sure they have one in the making, they would be stupid not too. Though no official word on one yet.

I was considering a PS3 for this game maybe this summer. But after reading on IGN that it doesn't have force feedback with either DFP or G25, I'm going to stay away from this game and the PS3. Shame on you Sony and game developer.
