    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 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.

    The new Grand Prix 4 blows away this one. EA never really quite understood the European when creating an F1 game. They should stick to Nascar and Cart.

    This is the first time I really feel like I am on the track in a racing sim. Great job EA. But it isn't perfect yet, I don't like the AI and the graphic in wet race.

    Great Feel for the car. Great game. Not as realistic as Grand Prix Legends (to much help on the braking... even without any help) but still the best sim driving wise. For those GP4 blind fans... GP4 LOOKS great... but that about it. You don't have the driving feelings that F1 2002 gives you.

    Great F1 simulation game, the greatest ever! And yes it is better than GP4, more fun to drive, the gameplay is simply awesome. Visuals are great! Go grab some addons for F1 2002 and you will be in the F1 heaven you ever dreamt of!

    It s really a good game but hard to find the best setup for cars.... A guide should add.

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

  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!
  2. 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.
  3. Takes the genre to new heights of both realism and presentation. [Oct 2002, p.79]
