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 ;)

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.

F1 Race Stars is a great arcade racer with off the wall collectable bonuses and power-ups or hazards. Great humour and flawless gameplay. In the tradition of Sonic All Stars racing or Mario Kart ... but be warned, this one is on steroids. Controls are smooth and intuitive with full support for an X-Box 360 wireless game pad controller. This game is really fun to play and comes highly recommended!

9.5 / 10

Enjoy

The closest to Mario Kart for the PC you can find. Great for LAN parties.

A couple issues:
- Inability to edit controls. You get what you get. Using Xbox 360 controller works well, though.
- When alt-tabbing back from the desktop, it will go from fullscreen to windowed and not return until you reconfigure your video to windowed and then back to full screen.

Until I manage to get a controller for this game and see if it will work i cannot recommend the game i couldnt alter the keyboard controls so it was totally IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTROL, the graphics are excellent, I think the game play could be good if the keyboard control could be altered so at the moment I would not recommend it if you only use keyborad, so my rating for the game is - Graphics 8/10, Keyboard Control - 1/10

Updated Review - Date - Thursday 11th December 2014

I have now being able to play the game, with an X-Box 360 Controller, I thoroughly enjoyed the game, I found it very easy to control with the control pad.

I would recommend the game to use with the Controller ONLY, as i feel that it is Impossible to play with keyboard, here are my updated ratings for the game - Graphics 8/10, Controller 8/10

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.

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).

+ interesting game/race modes
+ great looking tracks
+ good stearing 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 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.

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...

F1 Race Stars is incredibly shallow. For your full price you get a grand total of seven tracks with very little variation outside of them. It's a very fun splitscreen experience... that's better suited for a console. F1 Race Stars took plenty of chances but they didn't pay off and for full price you're going to be playing a flawed game that could have been more fun. This is made worse by the fact that the online is dead and the game has trouble reading multiple controllers at times. If you have four guys who'd like to play it and can get it really cheap on a sale, I'd say it could be worth a look at, but F1 Race Stars doesn't do anything for anyone outside of that small, situational demographic and that's just dissapointing.
