    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. Four seasons for the price of one is quite a little bonus, and the F1 action is sound. But there are plenty of better 'pure' racers.[GamesMaster]
  5. Although one of the better F1 racing games around, it seems like F1 Career Challenge might need to add some air to their tires.
  6. Basically an enhanced version of F1 2002, giving you the opportunity to create your own driver and take him through all four of the previous F1A racing seasons that occurred between 1999 and 2002.

    Electronic Arts never made a worthwhile console F1 game and my advice is stay well clear of this frustratingly miserable series. If you live Electronic Arts never made a worthwhile console F1 game and my advice is stay well clear of this frustratingly miserable series. If you live in the US pick up Grand Prix Challenge a vastly superior title that offers better graphics and rock solid frame rates. For those lucky Europeans it's a no-brainer get yourselves a copy of Studio Liverpool's F105 which is without a doubt the best F1 game that can be had for this system. Full Review »

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

    This game is great. I can't stop playing it. It's very realistic so I had a very hard time at first but once you get the hang of This game is great. I can't stop playing it. 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. I personally love F1 and I love this game. Full Review »
