  1. The cars handle superbly well and you'll soon realise there's no better F1 game around than this - even Michael Schumacher would be happy.
  2. The most obvious change from "F1 2001" is that the graphics have been given a major overhaul yet again. It's faster, more detailed and packed with fancy effects. [Sept 2002, p.112]
  3. Yes, this is another installment of a long-running series, but it is by far the best, most enjoyable one of them all.
  4. This team must have crawled directly into the brain trust of Formula One racing to have produced a game this seeping with perfection. [Aug 2002, p.68]
  5. A great Formula 1 game...On the other hand, it is another one in EA Sports' long-running F1 franchise, and it doesn't offer a whole lot of reasons for those who bought F1 2001 to pick this one up.
  6. The rain effects are fabulous and the cockpit cam is sweet, even if skips the odd frame or two. [August 2002, p.79]
  7. Its similarity to last year's game could put off players who've seen an done this all before. [Sept 2002, p.31]
