  1. EA Sports has been gradually enhancing the presentation of F1 over the past few years, and this time, it's stunning. [Aug 2003, p.97]
  2. This is possibly the best Formula One game we have played for quite some time and provides a totally entertaining experience.
  3. The difficulty level, although frustrating at first, certainly adds longevity to the game.
  4. While F1 driving demands a high skill level, I don't appreciate how your car's handling lacks that fine touch. [Aug 2003, p.91]
  5. The absence of the 2003 line-up of F1 racers/teams, needless ‘dumbing down’ of the prequel’s simulation aspects, average-at-best audio and superior PS2 product (namely Infogrames/Atari’s “Grad Prix Challenge”) bring Career Challenge’s worth down to rental status instead of must-own.
  6. If you like racing games generally then it is hard to pick this over "Toca Race Driver" or "Ferrari 355," the former offering the best racing experience, the latter one of the best driving experiences.

    Fans of F1 racing may be able to put up with the game's lack of features and frustrating nature. This simply isn't a racing game, however, that will appeal to a mainstream audience or win any new fans for the sport.

It's very realistic so I had a very hard time at first but once you get the hang of it, it's amazing. May not be so great for those that are not F1 fans though.

    The package is very neat, but presentation can be deceiving though, because the gameplay plain sucks.
