  1. To tell the truth, this whole product should have been a giant patch for F1 2000 rather than a standalone sequel.
  2. A "gateway" game. It’s friendly enough for first time players, but it’s got all the things to keep you playing and become a hardcore racer. (It’s even got options to show you the best trajectory and supply driving tips.) But even the hardcore simmer will find F1RC a challenge and realistic.
  3. As a patch it would be near-perfect; it successfully addresses several key concerns, adds one seriously compelling new element, and generally turns a very good racing experience into an exceptional one. Certainly, this is the game EA should have released in the first place.
  4. Take ("F1 2000") and speed up the graphics a bit, add a new training mode, polish the AI, and offer rainy day racing and all the real-life grids from the 2000 Formula One season and you've got F1 Championship Season 2000.
  5. The dismal gameplay coupled with the subpar framerates make this play more like a B-grade no-name title rather than the AAA title it was supposed to be, and that's just not forgivable.
  6. It enhances a number of the original game's features, adds a handful of new ones, and, ultimately, it will undoubtedly please racing enthusiasts and interested beginners alike.
  7. 92
    Because of the depth of the physics, setups, and customizable AI, you'll have your hands full as long as you want.
  8. The finest modern-day F1 simulation currently available. [Mar 2001, p.75]
