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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.

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.Published on March 21, 2002
I thought this game would be great, ...Graphics are solid, but the cars are nearly impossible to steer. This is a repackaged "Pole Position" for the 2000's. Read morePublished on February 28, 2002 by Scott Jones
This game is good, however using my steering wheel is not that great. Turning is slow to begin, then gets very quick too fast. Read morePublished on December 19, 2001
