Codemasters has a pedigree of making some outstanding racing games. From DiRT to GRID, they know what to do when it comes to developing them. But what about kart racers? Can Codemasters succeed in that specific genre of racing?
Featuring real-life drivers on overly exaggerated courses and crazy power ups, Codemasters sure hopes so with F1 Race Stars.
Don't believe the negative reviews on this game people. It is by far the best kart racer I have played probably ever. So, if you liked the demo you will love the retail.
And stay far away from sonic allstars
It will definitely have its fans, but I just didn't see it as "the best kart racer." It did things most other kart racers have done before. Still, if you enjoy it, that's is great as I know of games I enjoy that other people didn't like.
I had a lot more fun playing the demo of this game than I did playing the Sonic Transformed demo. I thought that game was bland and dull, while I thought F1 Race Stars was vibrant and fun.
And I like the pace car power up - I think it's clever and does happen in real F1 races quite a bit.
I would agree with you that F1 Race Stars is vibrant, I even put that in my review after my first few hours with the game. Sonic Transformed, to me, has better gameplay, but some people will have differing opinions.
