best racing simulator on the wii
i have gotten this game after 2 long years of searching for a wii racing simulator. im mostly going to be comparing this to grand tursimo 4 since they are at about the same level. for starters there is one car in here but there are several skins representing drivers and there country (at least 20 from what i have played) the graphics are equal to gt4 and thats a good thing in my book. the sound is probably the best aspect of the game because the sound direction is perfect and sounds how it would in real life. and the game play which is where everybody is concerned, it is also equivalent of gt4, especially if you use the classic controller and you swap it to settings 2 for classic controller. anyone looking for a racing simulator on the wii i would immediate direct them towards this game. how ever if you are looking for a arcade racer or kart racer stay far away from this game because it is brutal in that sence. if looking for a kart racer i would suggest sonic and sega all stars racing.
F1 fans and racing fans!
I recently purchased this game and it is one of the best racing games that I have played in a while. The gameplay/controls in this game are extremely smooth. It really lets you feel the road as if you were an F1 driver. The graphics are very nice and the car models are done very well. The game allows the player to fine tune every little detail of the vehicle from tires to downforce. The full grid of 20 cars, pit stops, vehicle damage, penalties, full length or shortened length races, and other details can be turned on/off thus giving the player options for their style of gaming. The game does have 2 player multiplayer but does not offer online play which doesn't really seem like a deal breaker as F1 racing is not the most popular racing line in the U.S.A. I highly recommend this game to any fan of F1 racing and anyone that loves a fast racing game with excellent controls and beautiful graphics! out.
worth the $
overall a very good game for the wii, but then the wii is not a ps3/xbox by any measure.
very playable for a novice with all driver aids on, yet very challenging with all the driver aids off and in manual transmission mode. the challenge mode is very appealing. in the career mode everything on the car is adjustable with full race weekends and full length races.
my biggest complaint is a lack of a good racing pedal set for the wii, this single item would make the game complete. the throttle and brakes are effectively 100% or nothing.
Formula 1 is back!
Can not wait till this game is released. Saw all the trailers and this game is going to be great. I hope the racing wheel is included, they were saying only in certain territories would get them. This wheel actually looks like an F1 racing wheel. This game really looks authentic and is racers game.
i think the game be great f1 is great racing sport it a exicting the game will be great
