  1. The best modern F1 racing sim to date.
  2. For the first time, you can now hear cars on other parts of the racetrack...It's an effect that puts you bang into the environment and sends a real tingle up and down your spine.
  3. Delivers one of the most convincing sensations of raw ground speed that I’ve ever seen in a PC racing game. [Jan 2002, p.72]
  4. The changes to the game are marginal at best... However, die-hard Formula One fans need look no further than F1 2001 for the most up-to-date--visually or otherwise-- F1 racing game on the market.

    It's fast as all hell, has customizability up the yin-yang, and stays for the most part true to the sport. But its inherent exclusivity and scant few additions above the last outing limit its broader appeal.
  6. Superb physics, killer graphics, and an agreeable price point. [Feb 2002, p.96]
  7. The deficiencies with frame rate, multiplayer competition, collisions, and replays still keep this title from achieving its potential.
