F1 Championship Edition Review
Formula 1 championship is the first F1 game on the Playstation 3 and for a launch game it looks great. The game features a lot of new features. For example formation laps. I will go into more detail later.
Champion edition has all the things you expect from an F1 game official teams and drivers but sadly the drivers and cars are last years. The game also features formation laps (lap before race to warm up the tires), unexpected AI collisions and online play.
The single player is the usual career ,time trail and quick race and world championship . Career consists of the player playing as them self and trying to become the best. World championship is where you race as you favorite F1 driver to win the world championship.
The online is where the game really shines but saying that it is not perfect. A room can hold up to 11 people and the rest of the grid is filled in with AI. For the first time ever you can have full damage on online as well as having qualification. Unfortunately the game has no comms but having 11 people talking at the same time would not be nice so maybe it is a good thing.. For the most part the online holds up very well but I have come across bugs like the person the qualified in pole position would have to race an extra lap.
F1 Championship Edition is not only for hardcore F1 fans. Racers have the option to use driving aids like the racing line and spin recovery. For people who don't know how to set up there car to suit there driving style there is a feature called car evolution which does it for you.
Overall Formula 1 Championship Edition is a great racer and for a launch game it looks amazing. Apart from the bugs online and last seasons drivers and cars it is hard to fault the game. I am going to give the game 9/10.
