Mircoprose's Formula One Grand Prix is the last word in high-speed driving games, except that it's not a game at all. It's an accurate simulation of a full F1 season, with all the attention to detail which we've come to expect from the masters of sim. The teams are there, the tracks are there, all accurately mapped from the real thing. Whilst realism is important in any kind of sim, so too is playability and Grand Prix certainly scores here. Pull on your helmet, make sure the fire extinguisher's working and boot up Formula One Grand Prix, the fastest, smoothest, most exhilarating drive this side of Monaco!
An almost pixel-for-pixel copy of its Amiga partner. Although perhaps a small yet impressive tad faster in places, the ST loses out inevitably in the sound stakes, with the engine's tinny whine a poor substitute for the Amiga's throaty roar.
ST Action (Mar, 1993)
Geoff Crammond caught everyone out with just how this game was. Destined to be a classic forever and ever. Amen!
Although it's tricky to handle and doesn't have an enjoyable mass pile-up feature, there isn't a finer racing simulation around - not to be missed by anyone with even a passing interest in driving fast cars around narrow bends in tortuous conditions.
Geoff Crammonds Formel-1-Boliden halten nun auch auf dem ST Einzug. Gravierende Unterschiede zur Amiga-Fassung sind eigentlich kaum vorhanden. Der Sound ist systembedingt etwas schlechter geworden, dafür ist die Grafik wiederum einen Tick schneller. Ausgleichende Gerechtigkeit, könnte man sagen. Aber es bleibt dabei: Formula One Grand Prix ist nach wie vor die beste Simulation auf dem Rennsportgebiet. Nirgendwo sonst kommt das Feeling so gut rüber wie hier. Die deutsche Anleitung könnte allerdings fehlerfreier sein, die meisten werden aber wahrscheinlich sowieso zum englischen Original greifen. Okay, mehr ist nicht zu sagen. An der Wertung ändert sich bis auf die Soundnote nichts gegenüber der Ur-Version.
ST Format (Jul, 1992)
So its quite good really. For this price, though, you need to be sure it’s the sort of game you want. For an exhilarating scream around some easy circuits, go for Vroom. For an in-depth, difficult and ultimately very rewarding simulation (let’s face it, it's the nearest you're ever going to get to being in the cockpit) F1GP delivers, but slowly.
Power Play (Jul, 1992)
Atarianer dürfen die Joystick-Motoren warmlaufen lassen: Geoff Crammonds Vektorraser fährt ohne nennenswerte Abstriche auf ihrem Lieblingscomputer.
Play Time (1992)
Angesichts des hervorragenden Handbuchs mit über 160 Seiten leuchtet es ein, daß die Fülle der Einstell- und Auswahloptionen von der Fahrzeugwahl über den Schwierigkeitsgrad hier nur im Groben aufgeführt werden können. Wer statt Actionrasereien echten Benzingeruch in der Nase spüren will, darf sich die brett-harten Formel-1-Flundern von Microprose nicht entgehen lassen.
