Product Description

F1 2001 takes you into a living, breathing Formula One world. Feel the anticipation during the buildup to the race as team personnel and engineers buzz around the grid. Race against opponents who want to win as badly as you do. Every driver on the track will fight, battle, and react to maintain his current position while constantly looking for the next opportunity to overtake you, creating a high-pressure racing experience.

Weather conditions heighten the experience. Watch the rain clouds swell in the sky above you, see the umbrellas go up, listen to your pit crew's weather updates on the radio, and then, as the heavens open, catch sight of your opponents spinning off the track, crashing into barriers or rushing towards the pits to switch tires and change strategy. You will hear intelligent pit communication from your race engineer, with weather and pit-stop predictions, plus advice on how these things will affect the race. If pit skills are honed, valuable seconds can be saved; if they are not, seconds will be lost. You can turn on the simulation mode and feel the car's handling change to a simulation style, pushing your ability to the limit. Or you can jump into the cockpit for the driver's-eye view and see the wheel wrestling around corners, the gears changing, and the driver gesturing out of frustration, anger, and elation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Attention to detail lacking... March 17, 2002
Don't get me wrong, this is not a bad game. Just seems to be one of those EA Sports games that (lately) seem to have become solid performers, but are not ahead of the curve anymore.
The main problem with this game is its attention to details (or lack thereof). I generally like my racing games as realistic as possible. So I enjoy racing with the FIA rules turned on, and the lick. Unfortunately, in this game, this simply is a pain. Example: You collide with one of your oponents, pushing him of his ideal line (so he at least touches the grass). This means that immediately, yellow flags are shown. That's fine with me, except that that there is a chance to now be ahead of the car you collided with (particularily if the collision was bad enough to cause the other car to stop) and that's passing under yellow, which gets you a 10 second stop-and-go penalty. Huh?!? Am I supposed to stop behind that other car?!?
Another problem is the pit-crew. Let's say you planned your pit stop just a bit past halfway. It then begins to rain just short of that (which, BTW, it does way to often... several times during every race if whether is turned on, what's up with that?!?), so you have to enter the pits to get new tires. While you are at it, you can also indicate that you want to make the remainder of the race your last stint. But for some reason, the pit-crew forgets to give you enough fuel, so you run out on the last lap. Makes you wonder why you told them you didn't intend to stop again...
The pit-crew instructions also are bad. Example: They tell you to come into the pits at the very last lap. Duh! Or let's say you are just shy of being lapped when someone else wins the race. Of course, this puts the winner right behind you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lookout, schumie... here comes Juan Pablo!!! January 17, 2002
I LOVE F1. LOVE it. I love how they race in the rain, there are 2 cars per team, and (most of all) I love the attitudes the drivers have. What a bunch of cocky... This game is very fun to play. Its not all that realistic, though. Even if I blow it in qualifying, I can make it all up before the first turn. Whats that about? Too many of the cars finish the race, too. Yeah, they dont have intermediate tires, either. But if you chose the camera angle where you see nothing but the track, your're in for some fun. Its fun to race in the challenge mode, where you give your opponent (little brother, girlfriend, drunk or high friend, whatever) a head start.
I wish you had more control in the settings of the car other than the tires. No wing adjustment, no steering fine tuning, no gearing changes. Its a fun game with good controls, but its not quite the F1 sim I was looking for. Once I accepted the fact that its not a sim, Ive been having a lot more fun with the racing game.
Its fun to pass Schumacher as Montoya. That really pisses of my roommate, possibly the biggest Schumacher fan this side of the Rhine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Realistic and Challenging December 28, 2001
This game is a very good boost to a hopefully increasing market in F1 games. I believe it has the realism and options most hard core sim fans get off on, yet the ease of use that arcade style-gamers can appreciate. Having trouble abiding by the rules or driving in the rain? Just turn off those features and race hard in the dry if you wish. It's only flaw is that the cars seem quite out of proprtion on the track, making it difficult to pass. I found myself closing right up on cars in a corner or straight and hitting them from behind or swerving into the grass to pass, despite the exeptional A.I. The handling is quite good; I encourage the use of a racing wheel. Plus, the game has a unique challenge mode adding depth to the game while honing your skills. If you keep the difficulty up to a level that challenges you, expect to be pressured at every turn, paying for your mistakes with the loss of one, or many, positions. You can't just pull a 10 second lead on the pack through the first corner and then be relaxed and free to make mistakes, no; your pit crew will warn you of people drawing nearer (or getting further) to you or your teammate. I suggest this game to anyone who wants to experience the thrill of passing a car pushing just as hard as you at 200 mph.

1.0 out of 5 stars This game is terrible December 7, 2001
By A Customer
I am a huge F1 fan, and after seeing Project Gotham on Xbox I thought the F1 2001 game would be awesome. NOT! This game is flat-out terrible. The graphics look like an N64 racing game. Project Gotham totally blows it away graphically. From a driving perspective, the cars just don't feel right, almost like I was playing Drivin'USA at the arcade. As big of an F1 fan as I am, I could not help but trade this thing in (at a loss) to the local video game store to buy something else.
And another thing about EA Sports...I think that all they are doing is porting their games from PS2 to Xbox, leaving the graphics and everything else unchanged...This F1 game doesn't even scratch the surface of the capabilities of the Xbox. Also, Madden Football 2002 on Xbox by EA Sports looks no different from the PS2 game (graphically). NFL Fever BLOWS IT AWAY. So I don't recommend getting ANY EA Sports games for Xbox until they decide to write games that use the capabilities of the XBOX.
It is really disappointing that they are not doing more than just copying games over from PS2.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok
Pretty nice game, but i think the crashes could be more realistic.

If you are a F1 fan this is the game for you. I have played many racing games in my time and this is by far the best one out there.
