    I don't know if the person who did the review before me has played f1 2006 for PSP already, but this game is far below that game that was released 3 years ago. Graphics: Could be considered bad to...

    I've been waiting for an engaging F1 game, finally here's one that gets you excited!

    Rated on November 22, 2009 by JOLIVERW

    I've been waiting for a complete feeling F1 game for years now, one that balances graphics, game play and usability. F1 09 does all of these things. The main feature is in no-doubt, the carrier mode,...

    excellent racing mechanics, solid gameplay, all substance with no unnecessary flair

    Rated on December 12, 2009 by hopkinsdoc2007

    As the other user reviewers have said, this game is outstanding. Yes, it is not a super-hardcore simulation-level reproduction where you have to worry about adequate tire temperature and subtle nuance...

    It has a good concept. But lacks realism/control.

    Rated on December 25, 2009 by ricky394

    This game has a good concept but lacks control. I used the Wii remote wheel and had very little control of the car. The response does not correspond accurately with my movements. This game had plen...

    A solid base for CM to build on, but severe flaws need ironing out for future of the series.

    Rated on December 30, 2009 by Redders1989

    We've waited three years now since F1:CE, the last of the Studio Liverpool games, and now we have F1 2009, the first of the CodeMasters era. Many people have hyped up CM's ability to produce unbeli...

    If you want proper racing then this is the game to go for! It can be very difficult or it can be easy enough for an 8yo.

    Rated on January 01, 2010 by Langy_01

    Before I decided to add this to my Christmas list I read almost every review that was out there. Most of them were not very favourable about the Wii version, but I decided to take the plunge. Some ...

    Surprising excellent. F1 2009 can give a diehard F1 fan a run for their money, as well as an arcade fan a slice of fun..

    Having been a Formula 1 fan for many years now, I have went through many F1 games to date. They include almost every released game to date on the Sony consoles, ranging from "Formula One 98" for the o...
