In the world of "WACKY-RACIN'-GAMES!!!" F1 Race Stars stands alone in being...exactly like all of the others.
That's not a bad thing - this is quite enjoyable, and I like Codemasters. The game is fun, it's wacky, there's tons of DLC's that add new things, and two years after the release I buy it in a bundle. For the price? It's excellent! It's well balanced, not buggy, doesn't crash on me, and it's playable with a keyboard or a controller.
There's a ton of content to unlock, lots of achievements, etc. You know, all those fake psychological bonuses you get for playing a game. So, if you think that Sonic All Stars Racing is getting boring, or you're tired of any of the other SUPER WACKY RACIN' GAMES, you might want to give this a try.
Definitely not bad, especially if you can get it on a huge discount with all the DLC, but it isn't worth dropping double digit bills on.
Fun factor is huge, music is lame, characters are bobbleheads - all the gimmicks are there! Fun, polished, and I think that's the whole point. I do think they went a little bit crazy with the DLC, though.
6.5/10 - You'll get your money's worth if it's on sale, but it's not the greatest game of all time.
