Title: Formula One 2002   Developer: Sony   Type: Car Racing
Absolute PlayStation2


"Oh yes another F1 game has just left the production line – but is it mechanically sound enough to compete in this tough world – just have to wait and see! Sony’s Studio Liverpool spent 18 months improving their last F1 title for the PS2 and just in time for Christmas their new creation was unveiled to the public. But if there is more competitive sport than Formula 1 then its Formula 1 game manufacture."

Papi Chulo  "I've Been Waiting Quite A Long Time For This Game.
After Hours And Hours Spending On Formula One 2001 It Was Time For A New Challenge. F1 2002 From Ea Sports Was Very Disappointing So I Very Much Looked Forward Getting In Some Real F1 Action. The Graphics Are Better Than The 2001 Version And The Updates Refresh The Game Totally, The Sound Is Very Good Except For The Commentary After A While It Becomes Very Anoying. The Gameplay Is Quite Much The Same But The Car Reacts More Realistic In The Rain. The Crashes Were Much Better In The 2001 Version, There The Car Totally Wear Off Here You'll And Up Only Losing A Front Wing Or Some Tires. The Multi Player Section Has Been Much Inproved By The New Option "hot Seat" Here You Can Battle Up To Four Players Gp4 Style. This Works Much Better Than A Splitscreen Mode. If You Are A Real F1 Fanatic You Have To Get This Game Immediately, It's The Best F1 Game Up To Now For The Ps2!!!enjoy!!"

Alex Spellcheinberg  "This Game Has Made Overall Change From Its Predessor Formula One 2001...however Gameplay Is Still Unique And Orginal From Is Competitor Ea F1 2002...

It's Lack Of Graphics Rendering And Overall Real In Game Environmental And Track Real-life Detail Accuracy Has Turned Down Most Hardcore F1 Fans... Althought Formula One 2002 Has Some Unique Ingame Features Such As Full Tv Animated Drivers Etc...some Are Irrelevent And Has No Point To The Game...

Some Bugs Are However Present Within The Simulator.

Overall,the People At Sony Should Have Revised This Game As It Has No Sense In Competing In The F1 Simulation World..."

This game has graphics that were never thought possible on this console

Functional sounds that compliment the on-screen action

No fun to play, control is bad, gameplay lacks ideas
Offers moderate enjoyment but lacks a reason to play regularly
Quality title that has all the features you would expect

Has the potential to still be played regularly weeks from now
This will remain a popular game in your collection for months
You will enjoy playing this game occasionally even years from now
