A brilliant F1 Sim

The Good
The Arcade mode is really fun, & grand prix is realistic. With all the real drivers, apart from Williams No.1 (Jacques Villeneuve), the game is very good, & the cheats for are fun. For example the Wipeout cheat, where the car turns into the pod racer, & commentary from the legendary Murry Walker & analyst Martin Brundle.

The Bad
Nothing really.

The Bottom Line
I would describe this game to others, has a brilliant Formula 1 simulation. If you got a Playstation, & want a decent Formula 1 game, get this!
