Alright, so I'm pretty torn on this. I'd been waiting a long while, debating a long while on whether I wanted to get my hands on it, because it looked quite fun and silly and right up my alley, and it's from Codemasters, but the reviewers I normally trust noted frustrating difficulty with it. Having finally picked it up for a little under $4 USD, I think I can sum up all the problems with this game in one word: "Arbitrary."

There's an arbitrary elimination mode that's horribly unbalanced and basically just means the person in first at the beginning wins. There's an arbitrary shortcut system that requires you to find a key on the track and drive through a specific gate to basically win right off the bat. There's an arbitrary random interval of time between the "3, 2, 1" and the "Go" to make boosting at the start that much harder (though honestly I found that kinda funny). There's an arbitrary damage system that slows your car down after each item that hits you, which serves only to force you to pit and to let those in the lead keep their lead. The whole freaking point of item racing is to keep it competitive, make it so that it's a constant fight for position based on skill. The gameplay mechanics routinely defeat their own purpose here. Hell, there's an item that instantly teleports the user to lead position. How ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ lazy is that, destroying the entire purpose? In a great deal of the career mode's races, I didn't feel any satisfaction whether I won or lost, feeling instead like I just ended up wherever the game decided.

Now, if you've read all of that and still want to give this game a try due to curiosity, sale price, a love of F1, or being charmed by the trailers, then I can recommend this to you. If you want a better racing game, you're spoiled for choice here, but Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed is name-dropped so often for a reason. If you just want to check this in particular out on sale, then go ahead; you'll definitely get your $4 worth.

The course design is a major, major plus here. I'm not too familiar with F1, but I know a lot of the real tracks from other racing series, and especially racing games (and especially games by Codemasters, at that!). The KERS system encourages taking your time in sharp corners, meaning that places like Monaco and the mountain roads of Japan (because come on, it's a Japan course in a racing game) get to be twisty and winding without ruining momentum. Each course is a loving, cartoonish, theme park version of its setting, be it the country entirely or just the city, and national stereotypes are played for humor, creativity, and really exciting scenes. Racing on bullet trains in Japan, leaping through the castles of Germany, and battling in the factories of the UK are grand fun. As an American, I personally found the USA course to be absolutely adorable, and love the effort they put into these. The original courses are part of the design, of course, and it's quite impressive to see familiar sweeping curves recreated in the country's landscape. I will also have to give some points for sheer awesome value of Abu Dhabi starting with a back-to-back combo of Yas Marina and Ferrari World.

The character design is your usual exaggerated cartoony look, but the animation sells it. Seeing your driver put on their helmet a random way every single time you start the race livens up the usual countdown, much like the Battlefield games having those one-in-ten-thousand reload animations. I don't know the drivers all too well, but was able to find pretty much all of the ones I've heard of. The voice acting is serviceable, and playing mostly as Kimi Räikkönen, it took a while before I realized that every driver speaks their own home language with a peppering of English. It does add a good deal to the experience to hear an international field, even if a bit exaggerated in performance.

There is a massive amount of bloat in this game, from extraneous unfun game modes to a wealth of gameplay mechanics that are never, ever explained. The key and shortcut system is never once mentioned. Boosting at the start by pressing the pedal right at "Go" is never mentioned. Boosting after a jump by hitting the gas the second you land is never mentioned. And so on, and so forth. You're gonna probably need a guide for this one.

The sense of speed honestly isn't too impressive outside of boosts. It doesn't really feel particularly like F1. It's the courses and the KERS system that really hammer home what it's based off of. All in all, it's absolutely goofy in a great way, but I mostly only recommend it to those out there that, say, would go into a game store and pick out a racing game from the bargain bin just to see what the experience is like, not for completionist's sake or out of serious hope it'll be a major timesink and investment. For the most part, I really was tempted to hit that "Not Recommended" button. But I haven't stopped playing, so I think that answers that.

This game just isn't fun and that's really such a shame, because it's like it's almost there, and then it just fell short for no reason.

There's just no give in the cars, no drifting, and when you realise it's not possible it's just not fun. Corners are bland and witohut the Mario Kart style handling but with the MK styled tracks it just feels like a weird mashup that makes no sense. It's like they wanted to make a fun party racer, but decided the F1 cars should handle like F1 cars.

The majority of the power ups are so uninspired, most of them being carbon copies of MK powerups which is mostly the norm since, it's not too otherworldly, but everything is just, bubble. Red bubble, blue bubble, purple bubble. The only other power-up is a safety car which slows down the lead racer, but just slows them down.

I would appriciate this game more if the safety car was introduced as rubber banding, making sure that the lead racer can still stay first, but can't get to a point where they're unreachable especially playing a solid defense. Also if you could just drift, I swear if you could just drift this game would be fun.

Just don't buy this, Sonic and Sega Allstars is a much better game.

F1 Race Stars is, essentially, an F1 version of Mario Kart. The worlds are just as cutesy, the hazards just as interesting. I think about the only difference is that your cars can take actual damage and require "pit stops". You can play it online with friends or in a career mode. I purchased it on sale for $3, and have yet to regret my decision.

8/10. Purchase if on sale, I'm not sure I would recommend it so strongly at the full price.

Sono rimasto davvero sorpreso da questo titolo. Certo, da cultore di Mario Kart non posso che aspettarmi un prodotto inferiore, ma vi dirò...questo non è niente male! Alcuni power-up sono semplicemente non ispirati (le "bolle") altri invece sono geniali (la safety car e la pioggia a comando su tutti!). Bellissimi i tracciati, vale la pena di giocarlo solo per vederli! Davvero un tocco di classe vedere in questi circuiti di fantasia parte delle loro controparti reali, come la variante di Lesmo nel GP d'Italia, o la curva lentissima del GP di Monaco con annessa galleria e chican. Sono soddifatto! Certo, pensare che 4 circuiti siano a pagamento al costo di 5 euro l'uno fa girare le palle...

Yeah it's not as much fun as Sonic Allstar-Racing, but the handling of the cars feel good, the items are cool, and if you're also a F1 fan, this game is even better.

Overall, a good buy :)

If you want a break from the Racing simulators and want a bit of fun then you got to buy this and the DLC's. I really have enjoyed playing this to date. Typical Codemasters high quality game. I recommend it on sale or at full price

A prima vista F1 RACE STARS può sembrare un gioco per bambini, un gioco semplice nonchè in qualche modo etichettabile come l'ennesimo clone di Mario Kart.

Ovviamente giocando ci si rende conto che nulla di quanto sopra scritto corrisponde alla realtà.

F1 RACE STARS non è certo un brutto gioco, sia chiaro ma non è nemmeno un titolo che può essere definito adatto a tutti.

Graficamente il titolo è molto colorato e ben reso, le piste sono ben fatte e danno un'idea ben precisa della zona di dove si trova mentre effetti come la pioggia hanno un senso. I piloti rispecchiano più o meno le loro controparti. A parte la risoluzione non ci sono impostazioni grafiche modificabili segno che il gioco deriva in tutto e per tutto dalle console.

Il sonoro è composto ovviamente dai tipici effetti della Formula 1 e da alcune tracce musicali ben tinteggianti con le ambientazioni. Nulla da segnalare a riguardo.

Riguardo alla giocabilità il titolo è ben lontano dalla serie F1 vera e propria data la natura arcade del titolo e ovviamente rende al meglio con un controller Xbox 360 pur essendo perfettamente giocabile con la tastiera.

Potenzialmente il gioco può durare parecchie ore anche solo in singolo, non solo per la presenza di diversi campionati ma sopratutto per la difficoltà troppo ostica anche nelle fasi iniziali e anche scegliendo la sola cilindrata 1000 (che dovrebbe corrispondere al livello più basso). Ebbene gli avversari daranno parecchio filo da torcere ad ogni gara, vi supereranno inspiegabilmente, vi bombarderanno con ogni accessorio possibile e sfrutteranno ogni singola scorciatoia più di voi. Questo è probabilmente il più grande difetto di questo gioco e riflettete bene a riguardo. Se Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Transformed era davvero facile per oltre metà degli eventi qui avrete da sudare fin dalla prima gara.

Tuttavia nonostante la difficoltà F1 RACE STARS è un titolo che riesce comunque a divertire e per questo se vi piace il genere e avete già completato Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Transformed fareste bene e siete alla ricerca di una vera e propria sfida fareste bene a dargli un'occhiata.

Il titolo infine si può recuperare (letteralmente) per una manciata di euro da play.com e li vale tutti.

Rimanda molto Super Mario Kart, purtroppo i powerup non sono sempre convincenti e l'IA è abbastanza mediocre.
Lo vedo come un gioco riuscito a metà, scordatevi il multiplayer online: sono l'unico possessore del gioco che tenta ancora di cercare avversari.
Da comprare esclusivamente in offerta, a prezzo pieno sarebbe sconveniente.

Gran bel gioco di corse per chi vuole divertirsi, stile Mario Kart. Una bellissima alternativa alla 'sobrietà' del mondo della formula 1.

Good racing arcade for F1 fans. But it’s only for players that are fond of arcade racing and F1. It of course doesn’t worth its normal cost. You should buy it ONLY on sale above 50%.
DLC are unreasonably expansive! Especially China Track which is the worst DLC Track but the most expansive (LOL). But Europe, India and Canada are rather good. But anyway they are very expensive. Buy it ONLY on sale.

Multiplayer isn’t the strong part of this game – many players has different problems with online mode, but it works:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=316882599

For this you should link your Steam and Race Net accounts:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/203680/discussions/0/846959362244973673/
http://steamcommunity.com/app/203680/discussions/0/864951475503458740/

You should also learn some tips or it will be difficult to play it:

1) Watch videos of shortcuts (include locked ones):
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=113147181
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=113338734

2) Learn how to do start and jump boosts:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=130374135

Eventually it’s your choice but for me it’s awesome. I get a lot of fun playing it with my friends via split screen (up to 4 players) and via multiplayer.

You may also right to me if you have some problems or you want to play online! Don’t hesitate ;)

Being a big fan of Sonic and All stars transformed racing decided to try out the Codemaster's version of kart racng. There are definitely big pros and cons to this game and I hope they decide to fix these areas in their future sequel if there ever will be one. Which I doubt since Grid series, their signature line up is doing extremly well. Which by the way am a BIG BIG fan of. Unlike other kart racing games there are almost little to no drifting! Which could be good and bad. Basically focrces you to pay more attention to lines you take in corner entry and exit. Some may find this annoying and others might appreciate the challenge.

Let's talk about the PROS of this game first

+ Clean eye pleasing graphics
+ Car damage and pit system
+ Team play mode
+ Price if you can grab it at 75% (4.99)
+ Slip stream!!! (shake and bake)

Ok the downside....

- TOO MUCH DLC (seems to be becoming codemasters trend)
- Online multiplayer is dead. You'll need to get your buddies to play
- Weapons were not very creative

Overall I am happy with my purchase and would recommend buying this game to any silly kart racing fans out there then immediately adding ME!!!

F1 Race Stars is ALMOST a very good game. But ultimately it is frustrating and somewhat lacking in comparison to other top kart racing titles. It is fun to play as your favourite F1 drivers in cartoon form, with lots of nice power ups, and some truly original and very innovative racing modes which keeps interest levels high. The graphics are quite good, though of course they are meant to be very cartoon-like as opposed to photorealistic. Overall, there's a lot of good to be said about the game. It is certainly a challenge!

But here's the rub: the game is challenging in the most frustrating of ways. Firstly, there is essentially no difficulty level. The 1,000 vs. 3,000 cc only changes the speed of the cars. Facing the AI is like a baptism of fire. It is relentless, and one can win only with a mix of skill and luck (luck being by far the most important factor). I don't like to win every race, but when I lose I want to be able to remedy that by improving my skills. Not so in F1 Race Stars. You can be racing at your very best and come dead last by virtue of a bit of bad luck; likewise you can race like a drunkard and come first with a contrary amount of good luck. This, unfortunately, is a very nearly game-breaking fault. As a result, what could have been a classic kart racing title will be one to forget in comparison to a Mario Kart or Crash Team Racing. But all in all, it isn't a bad game. Fun but frustrating. 7/10.

What make classic Mario Kart great? Seeing your skill and knowledge of tracks increase and slowly you start to win cups that seemed impossible. When is it at it worst? when too much luck is involved. Blue shell anyone?

This game is all-in on the luck part. Tracks dont require much knowledge outside some basic shortcuts + key/gate locations and certain rare spots where you actually need to use brakes.

What decides the positions is actualy what you get for powerups. Torpedo or Teleport once or twice in a game and you are golden. You better also know how to defensively use power ups also right at the first 1000cc cup so dont expect 1000cc to be the 'training wheels' cup. it is just the least broken one.

Career mode is a mess. You will be pressing restart quite many times during multi-track racing cups. Luckily the final order of drivers seem to be much more random than on Mario Kart where your main rival is faster than anyone else.

Multiplayer is dead. DLC structure is a mess. Tracks as DLC i can understand but the rest is some of the most useless crap i have seen in a DLC. And the prices. oh my.

Time trial works. Thank goodness.

F1 license in the game - has any reviews even mentioned it? must have been a good investment. ^_^ No difference to anyone.

Does it work as a couch game? Yes. If played casually it is wonderfully goofy. The shortcoming start as soon as you try to seriously play the game. I rather study Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed more complex mechanics or just go back to Mario Kart rather than try to seriously play this game. I will be putting some more hours into this but it's clear already i can just forget about a proper career game and just play this casually. That way it's obviously been designed too.

4.5/10

+ interesting game/race modes
+ great looking tracks
+ good steering aside from
- bad cornering mechanics
- no slide mechanics which takes a lot of the fun and speed out of the game
- not enough tracks to make them entertaining (only 15 + mirrored version)
- demotivating and unfair power up system
- long loading times (on SSD, probably due to some online features)
- unskippable multiplayer setup cutscenes
- no custom set up (no damage, no powerups etc.) available in multiplayer (only single track possible and that's frustrating due to loading times)
- races can only be unlocked in carreer (single player) but are required to be unlocked if to be hosted in a multiplayer session
- useless DLC (aside from the four tracks)

To make it short, the races don't feel like a fun kart racer. Due to very frustrating power up and repair mechanics it is often luck and not skill. Boosting is only possible with power ups, boost jumps or specific boost sections in corners (not every corner though). You'll find yourself being frustrated instead of having fun a lot of times.
It's a last resort buy for me - I recommend getting "Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed" instead. Alternatively you could just wait for a better game to be released on the PC - or just play the original: Mario Kart is still the way to go in this genre.

As Mario Kart 8 is coming out, many console gamers are poking fun at the PC crowd for not having a Mario kart... but in fact we kinda do, it is this game.

It definitely has a few issues, but overall it is very enjoyable. the tracks are fun and well designed, and the fact that there are no crazy drift mechanics can actually be considered a plus by players.

Sadly, F1 race stars does have issue with its online multiplayer, but if you invite your friends over at home, it is a great PC alternative to the kart-racing italian plumber.

If you can get this game on sale, like I did, then it is a pretty decent time killer for a few hours (I recommend it on sale, but not if its standard price). However, the novelty factor quickly runs boring and there are a few issues with the game: it looks and plays like they tried to rip off mario kart, the boosters are ridiculous and can get you from anywhere, if you are dominating then it seems to rain a hell of a lot to bring you back to the field.
If you like this sort of game there are plenty of levels and steam acheivements to work through, and if you are a fan of F1 then its a bonus novelty to have real drivers and teams (I am not).

F1 Race Stars is one of my favorite racing games ever and it is in my opinion the 2nd best kart racing game ever made behind Mario Kart and I've played most games in the genre if not all of them. I own F1 Race Stars for Xbox 360 with all the DLC and love it so much and missed playing it I decided to buy it on Steam. The game its self is worth the full price but it goes on sale often enough that you can buy it cheap. It's a very overlooked game that is very polished with great gameplay. Please try this game if you like fun kart racing games or are a F1 fan, trust me you will enjoy it.

I normally dont write reviews but... for this game i just had to! Because everybody has to know thats its totally extremly and absolutly... ♥♥♥♥. Dont buy it. Dont let the shiny graphics, license and comparison with mario kart blind you into buying this! Why? Because the game mechanics is bad. The team did really a good job on polishing the game. But the mechanics... for example, if you get hit by an enemy extra, you get a double punishment. Not only for the extra that hit you, but also your car is broken now and you drive more slowly. You have to drive trough a pit stop (normally around 2-3 on the map) where you lose AGAIN time to repair your car. If you add the pit stop you get triple punishment... wtf...
It also has no kind of fun mechanics like in sega sonic all star racing or mario kart where you can use your skill to get extra boosts. Instead you have Kers... and Jump Boots... where you just have the possibility on some occasions by simple button releasing and pressing to gain an extra boost. Yay again... Please DONT BUY Save your money! I am Sorry for the dev Team, You did a great job with the game overall, but your game lead designer should buy any nintendo mario kart game to see what good game design for fun racers is. Thx

This game was quite the surprise for me... I was expecting it to be so moronically cutesy that i would find it unbearable, and yet it's actually quite an enjoyable game. Despite clearly being aimed at younger players, the game is actually quite tough, with the AI drivers being quite ruthless in their use of power-ups and short cuts, often resulting in you leading the race into the final corner and yet finishing 9th or 10th out of 12 racers. This can be rather frustrating but if you can deal with that, it's a fun game. I should point out that i only got this game as a result of it being free when pre-ordering F1 2013... I'm not so sure i would rate it so highly if i had paid the rather high asking price for it. The DLC (and there is plenty of that) is also rather over-priced in my opinion...

Very good game, attractive. I'm so glad to find a game on computer who looks like Mario Kart.
But one bad point, we can't change the hotkeys...

i didn't expect this much funny and cute game from codemasters. they are making games as racing simulations. f1 race stars has all licenced drivers and ads. graphics are amazing. drivers talking is very funny and it depends on driver's country. if you like mario kart or like funny games you should try it out.

10min of gameplay (i show 1 lap for each of the dlc tracks)

This is a cart racing game with real f1 drivers.
Since this is linked to f1 there is no drifting so you'll need to use your breaks on turns or pump the gas also hiting the other cars drops your speed.
You get 11+4 dlc tracks, 28 drivers in 14 cars in 1, 2, or 3,000cc.
Each car is shared by 2 drivers and each car has a different ability, stuff like better boosts, more of a item, off road, and many more.
Items come from stares on the track and give power-ups like, speed boosts, bubbles (can be placed behind you to block or shot forward & stops a driver), a shockwave (disrupts cars around you), a teleport (jump ahead a bit), a rocket (become a rocket and fly forward), rain cloud (slows) balloons (if hit will cover your screen with confetti), and a pace car (slows the head cars).
Tracks have hidden paths (i think you need items to use some) and it will sometimes rain.
Cars can get a boost at the start if you hit the gas right, and again sharp turns are hard with no drifting.
Boost pads on the track charge up a battery on the back of the car before you can use it.
Taking damage or hitting a object head on will damage your car and you'll be slower and handle worse until you can drive down a pit lane.

The game is polished, runs without errors, and can be fun though i know some complain about the turning it wasn't a deal breaker for me also the purple car at the end has a off road ability so you won't lose as much speed when your off the track.
The character motions are campy but they also give the feeling of sportsmanship and that they don't hate each other, also the opening race thing is skipable.

The dlc
The 4 tracks are ok, not sure they are worth $5 each and if you want to see them i have all 4 in my video.
As for the accessory packs, these change your skid marks (you wont even notice), what your tailpipe kicks out when you boost (you'll barley notice), & your horn (you'll notice this most and i can see people liking the air horn in the party pack)
Though i didn't feel they give enough for the price (all 9 for $9).
If it was all in 1 cheaper pack maybe but how it is now, i'ed pass.
