  • Summary: F1 World Grand Prix is the follow to "Official Formula 1 Racing." This new game in the franchise will feature all the teams, drivers, and circuits from the 1999 Formula 1 season. A host of graphical and gameplay improvements have been added while retaining the speed, intuitiveness, and fun offered by the first game. Expand

    Simply the best F1 graphics to date, particularly if you have a fast machine and a T&L card.
  2. While we wait for the next Microprose effort, this is a fine way to pass the time.
  3. A nice blend of arcade and sim, which in my mind would be perfect for the uninitiated amongst you and die-hards alike. The split screen two-player option is also a bonus, and works extremely well.
  4. Although some nagging little problems persist here, such as oversensitive brakes, imperfect artificial intelligence, and substandard sound effects, none detract enough from the enjoyment of the racing experience to ruin it.
  5. A fairly well-developed game. It looks great and is to some degree fun to play. There is however, little that is new to racing games.
  6. It's just a bad representation of real-life F1 racing, especially compared with EA's earlier "F1 2000."
  7. A mildly entertaining but distinctly clumsy attempt at a Formula One game. [Oct 2000, p.127]

    Why have I written a review for a game that came out 7 years ago? I guess I really had nothing else better to do. Having played just about every F1 simulation ever made this title certainly ranks as one of the worst. The cars handle like crap and the AI is putrid. The graphics are ok for a year 2000 title but the framerates sucked even on top rigs. Overall a completely forgettable game that should have never been granted an F1 license. My recommendations from that era would be F1 Racing Simulation, Monaco Grand Prix 2 or Crammond's Grand Prix 3. Expand
