    I thought it looked and sounded more like an RC car than a Formula car. Did not like the game at all.

    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 Electronic Arts never made a worthwhile console F1 game and my advice is stay well clear of this frustratingly miserable series.

    The worst, and most important thing about F1 Career Challenge, is the jerky handling I mentioned earlier. It takes about an hour of game time to get acclimated to it. Even after that, the cars are nearly impossible to drive smoothly, and it never really feels like you are in total control.
  2. The difficulty level, although frustrating at first, certainly adds longevity to the game.
  3. 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.
