Wow, is this ever awesome!

The Good
Handling. Graphics. Speed. SMOOTH! Competition. Features. AND it delivers on ALL counts.

The Bad
That I blew a win at Sepang by not saving my tires.

The Bottom Line
Incredibly immersive F1 racer with graphics nearing perfection; speed absolutely everywhere (even with a full load of 22 cars); easy to jump right in and race - but with added complexity as you progress; great handling even with the analog stick - but really rocks with a wheel; no slowdowns EVER; excellent competition.

Now THIS is why I bought a PS2!
