Monaco Grand Prix Racing Simulation or F1 Racing Simulation as it is known in the shops is a great game, even though it is 5 years old now! Starting with the plus points, the graphics are excellent, with it being 5 years old you would expect a relatively basic looking F1 title, but with this you get some really good looking visuals, realistic smoke effects, lighting effects etc. The PC specs you need to run the game on are very low, recommended Pentium 166MHz, 3dfx graphics card which this game makes full use of, 20Mb of hard disk space, and thats it. Simple! Crashes are very realistic within the game but maybe the oponents are a bit too realistic sometimes taking you off the track after they have made a lunge down the side of your car! Wheels and wings drop off if you touch the barriers as in real life and they stay on track when you come around the next lap. The is also a retro mode where you can drive retro, old fashioned F1 cars along old tracks from the past. Certainly not as good as Grand Prix Legends but is another good feature. The only down side is that this game may get left behind due to it being out of date. I hope this isnt the case because it is definatly a classic game which deserves a lot of credit. It rates very highly amoungst my friends and family that play it, and I would personally give it 90% out of 100% for overall performance. Its price would also be dirt cheap and is definatly worth considering if you are a motor racing fan or not.
