    From the graphics to the sound to the razor sharp control and even the international broadcast standards, this game has it all.

    The controls are great, it's exceptionally playable, and if you're a real gearhead you should be very excited. [June 2002, p.128]
  3. Superb graphics, great sound and unbeatable realism. There's not much more you can ask for in a racing game period.
  4. 80
    The main benefit over the original is the game's expanded challenge mode.
  5. The best F1 racer currently available on the PS2. If you’re an F1 nut, we whole heartedly recommend it.
  6. Very few [f1 games] have managed to walk the fine line between appealing to the masses and appealing to those who require the utmost level of realism, but that's precisely what EA's F1 2001 for the PlayStation 2 does.
  7. Play with traction control, ABS, weather conditions, damage and more in the handy options screen. You'll even be able to turn on the FIA rules or try your hand at interactive pit stops. I love choices.

    This version of Fifa would be a lot better if cheap goals could not be scored. Beat a midfielded wide, run downfield and center it. Press This version of Fifa would be a lot better if cheap goals could not be scored. Beat a midfielded wide, run downfield and center it. Press shoot and the forward that the centering pass goes to will do a bicycle kick and almost always score. Damn it, it sux how easy it is to score this way. Fairly good game otherwise.
