http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=158214 4.8 / 10 Ouch! This is a first party game made exclusively for the PS3. What do you think they should have done better? Apparently the graphics do look really good. Anyone a fan of these F1 games? Discuss.

Wow.. that is a harsh review.. I had fun playing the demo and can't wait for the full version. I am guessing that this will not be a huge title in the states as the sport in general is not that big here.

They were reviewing the Japanese version. It says so in the review. Also at the end it says "No multiplayer just yet" so they are aware of the fact that multiplayer will be included in later versions.

i wasn't expecting much from this game anyway, but 4.8 is lower than i thought. but as others have said, i wouldn't put too much faith into 1 review.

Not that I know of, but the review was pretty harsh. And I've never even heard of that site before. The guy had absolutely nothing positive to say about it whatsoever. I've played the demo and I thought it was the best F1 game I've ever played. The reviewer just sounded way too biased and didn't try to review it from an objective angle. He even started off by saying how boring he though Formula 1 racing was. He lost all credibility after I read the first paragraph.

If the demo is any indication of how the full game is I find it hard to believe that this game is that bad...

He said EA's game has poor handling too. I know some F1 fans that would differ. Seems like he wants the game the way he thinks it should be or he will fail it.

Well then maybe you should have read on to the 2nd paragraph where he says he's a "helpless fan of the real sport..."

the guy spelled tire wrong throughout the whole review...was he trying to be cool or is he just illiterate? Also, the steering in that game was nowhere near difficult, i think maybe he should release the gas pedal in his turns so he doenst go into the wall everytime...i thought you had to be able to play games at a certain level of ability to be able to review them...i guess not

How is a guy suppose to be objective, when he opens with "Find F1 just too boring to watch? Don't worry - if this simulation is anything like authentic, then the people taking part aren't having any fun either. Perhaps that's why they all drive so fast - they're just desperate to get it over with. Whatever, this really very attractive game is hand-wringingly dull."

If i find baseball boring, i wouldn't review a baseball game.

:lol: bleach_is_basic, you just roam the entire web searching for any piece of dirt you can find on the PS3 and it's games. lol I don't get it, if you really don't like the system why do you even bother with a system you obviously don't like? :lol:

The reviewer doesn't know what he is talking about at all. It has been said for the past few years it is all about the car, not the driver.
He is complaining about the cars not sliding, sliding is not a good thing, you lose time sliding. Those cars have so much downforce on them to prevent them from sliding. He talks about steering with the throttle, F1 has not been like that for years. He also brings up Jenson Button, this guy won 1 race his whole F1 career, and he brings up how you can't drive the car the way Jenson drives it.

I think the site just wants some hits, so the put up a bad review early.

I didn't scour the whole web. I basically use two game sites. Gamespot.com and Evilavatar.com, this was posted on EA and I thought I'd repost it here. The only things I have against the PS3 itself right now is the lack of quality games. My most anticipated game right now is God of War 2. I'm sure by the time God of War 3 hits I'll have a PS3 and if I don't, I'll purchase one then. I don't get how you've had the wool pulled over your eyes so effectively though. Someone says anything negative about the PS3 and suddenly they are a troll. What ever happened to wanting a system to be the best it can be?

That is a horrible website. Theres another review of the same game giving it a 7/10 on the same damn website. wtf. And what is PSM3? There is only one PSM and it's the one thats been around since the original Playstation. PSM, the unofficial playstation magazine is the real deal, not this PSM3 crap.

Why does the japanese versions of PS3 racers always end up being half of what they really are when released in the US!?

I give it a 9/10 if you compare it to other games in the series. The 4.8 and 4.0 scores have some bias behind them i think.

It must be a bad game then. Because I seriously doubt they're bias, they gave the japanese motorstorm an 8/10 and VF5 a 9/10....
