Product Description

Product Description

F1 World Grand Prix accurately reproduces real racing rounds from the '98 Grand Prix--complete with the weather of the day. Take a shot at the championship in this title, which features a 3-D cockpit with two virtual views of the action. To make your experience more realistic, the racecars sustain damage when they crash into a wall or opponent. Your tires may lose traction and start to unravel, so get to the pit quick for repairs and refueling or you'll be left in the dust. Keep an eye out for the five different flags that will alert you to track activities. Each race that you select comes with a preview of championship history and overall position, as well as the drivers and their stats. Artificial Intelligence recreates the champion racer's driving style so you can follow in the tire tread of your racing heroes.

The Dreamcast delivers a new sense of realism to the racing-games genre with F1 World Grand Prix. Not only is it one of the most beautiful games of its kind, with lavishly modeled cars and tracks, but it's one of the deepest ones as well.

Almost every aspect of F1's cars can be customized, including gear ratio, suspension, brake sensitivity, front and rear wings, as well as tires and the amount of fuel racers choose to carry. Pit stops let players refuel and repair damage--which cars take realistically--and an announcer identifies racers' ranking, position gains and losses, and specific car damage.

There are 16 races in championship mode, each with weather conditions based on conditions found in the real event. A match-race mode lets two friends compete, which is ideal when you want to go head-to-head against a buddy. The only real drawback to this game is that it lacks the speed of an arcade-style racer, but this fact alone may be enough to scare away nonracing fans. --Robb Guido

Pros:

  • Real F1 racers and their cars
  • Beautifully modeled tracks and nice weather effects
  • An in-depth car-setup screen
Cons:
  • Races are slower than they could be
  • The controls are a bit difficult to master

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent F1 simulator February 2, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is by far the best, most comprehensive, and most realistic Formula 1 simulator to hit any gaming platform yet. The incredible attention to detail is something to marvel at, as well as the graphical prowess.
Any F1 fan will greatly appreciate the level of detail that each car and track sports. The game has a full license from the FIA which allows them to have all the actual team names (i.e. Ferrari, McLaren, Jordan, etc.) and actual driver names (i.e. Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakkinen, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, etc.) The cars obvioulsy look exactly like each of their real life counterparts, and the tracks are precisely configured as they are in reality. The amazing part is, even the backgrounds and off-track scenery is spot-on in its accuracy. For example, on the track in Austria (the A1 Ring), while driving up the straight that follows turn 1, the horizon line of the mountains are *exactly* like they are if you watch the Austrian Grand Prix on TV! It's things like this that really put this game in a league of its own. Even the pit stops have wonderfully animated, polygonal crew members who take their proper positions, and carry out their tyre-changing and refuelling tasks in a very life-like manner.
The number of options in the game are staggering. Everything from the standard fare of adjusting every possible aspect of the car (front and rear wing angles for downforce, transmission gearing, tyre choice, suspension stiffness, etc.), to analyzing the telemetry of practice and qualifying laps in order to improve your future lap times, are included. Altering weather conditions are also an option. Rain effects are wonderful, and it truly alters the handling of the cars (as it should).

But not always. F1 wins over Monaco GP in some areas. Mainly in presentation. As other reviewers mentioned, in F1, there is a little more dynamic atmosphere - crowds roaring, camera flashes from the grandstands, etc.
Monaco GP, however, has a much better driving simulator. It wins hands-down for simulating spins and texture changes. F1 allows you to drive at nearly full speed doing hard turns (even on grass) and come out unharmed, but in Monaco GP you have a pretty good chance of slamming into a wall if you try that (even with ABS and traction control on). The one thing that F1 seems to simulate reasonable well is understear. If you try breaking too hard coming into a turn, your front tires lock up and you just plow straight forward...
When I want to play a couple rounds of something flashy, I'll start up F1 WGP, but then I'll switch to Monaco for more realistic racing..

4.0 out of 5 stars Best "pure" racing game for the DC May 3, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm mainly writing this to counter the reviews that are saying that this is a horrible game. I don't see that at all. True, if you're not a fan of pure racing games based on a love of auto racing as a sport, you won't like this game. It's not an arcade game like Crazy Taxi, Tokyo Extreme Racer, etc. This game has depth and requires a little effort. But having said that, if you are looking for a racing simulation, this is a great game. The graphics are very good. Definitely good enough to show off to your N64 and Playstation friends. They could've been a little tighter in some areas, but overall they are definitely impressive. The control is good, making good use of the analog thumb triggers and analog "stick". You also have the option of making the steering more or less sensitive. This is entirely separate from the handling options dealing with adjusting the downforce, etc. It also offers many levels of play, from fairly easy to downright impossible. The sound is average overall. Adequate music and sound effects. But having the pit crew on the radio is great. Instead of looking at corners of your screen to see how the other racers are doing (when you should be staring at the road), your pit crew will chime in with remarks letting you know that you're 3 seconds back, or that you're up 2 seconds on the guy behind you, etc. Very nice. Also, the crowd sounds as you pass by them (while they wave flags and such) are a subtle, but nice, touch. There is a great illusion of speed and the frame rate is crisp throughout. You can choose among 5 views during gameplay. The track fly-bys before the race and the replay option after the race are just beautiful to watch. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT GRAPHICS-AI IS BAD. March 28, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The accuracy of the scenery F1GP coupled with the cheering crowd, photo flashes & horn blowing really pulls you into the F1 atmosphere. Although there is *some* pop up (especially in the grandstand areas) it's not really that noticable. The camera views were great! Especially the above the airbox view, with the drivers head reacting to the sudden G force changes. The track elevation changes,seem to be much better than Monaco GP. However this is just a fun racer rather than a true F1 sim. Some of the little details are great, like the helicopter in Spa and the Airship in Silverstone! Sure it was possible to make setups and adjustments to the car but these adjustments were very general but they changed the behaviour of the car very little. *tuning* the car is sometimes half the fun and this game really isn't for people who plan to spend some time trying to figure out what's wrong with the handling. Also the artificial intel is a bit bogus with competing racers holding some strange lines thru the apexes. They (other team cars) tend to run into the back of you quite often. (Much like the earlier F1 sims of Playstation. The '98 scenario is really horrible With damaged cars just parked out to the side..No overturning or flipping..Just take a look at the Spa 98 race!..U all remember what happened there! But hey if you just want to get on the track and start racing and don't really care about gearing ratios, bump/rebound, spring settings, ride heights etc, etc ..than this is the game to get if you are an F1 fan. U die hard racers who want to stick to slicks than stick with Monaco GP...endnote..the inside cockpit view with drivers' matching gloves were great..Each steering wheel was different with each team. Unfortunately the rev-lights don't light up on the steering wheels!
