  1. Overall this is the best F1 racing game to date, every detail, has been covered. The game plays great, the graphics are top notch, the sounds are realistic, and the ability to tweak and adjust everything in the game is fantastic!

    A must buy for anyone with an interest in a credible simulation of the cars and the sport.
  3. The artificial intelligence of the drivers is brilliant. Your computer-controlled opposing numbers are absolutely cutthroat at their best, burying you whenever an opportunity presents itself. But what's most impressive about the computer drivers is their restraint.
  4. Perhaps the most impressive new feature is F1 2002's dedicated multiplayer support for up to 16 players. [Sept 2002, p.70]
  5. The AI however is entirely customizable and also represents another good example of the programmers' efforts to make the whole game genuine.
  6. Clearly superior to "F1 2001" in several important categories, and it's a superb single-player driving game for those who appreciate real-world driving intricacies and generally authentic visuals.
  7. Takes the genre to new heights of both realism and presentation. [Oct 2002, p.79]

    Detailed physics engine makes for good gameplay without arcade styled handling.

    So realistic. The AI driver ability is adjustable right down to the second, so you will always have perfect competition. The tracks are perfect too.

    Mike this vote is four you! It is quite obvious that you never played F1 2002 and that you are a fanatic of GP4. If you played them both youMike this vote is four you! It is quite obvious that you never played F1 2002 and that you are a fanatic of GP4. If you played them both you would have realised that the two games are at the same level, but that F1 2002 has some better features. Go grap F1 2002 and post another review. Expand
