F1 Championship Edition is currently the only Formula one game available on the PS3 which is a shame since it is based on the 2006 Formula one season. Being based on 2006 that means that Lewis Hamilton is not in the game (not a problem for me as I'm a Ferrari fan!!) but over the past two years is obvious what Hamilton has done for the sport and I have no doubt in my mind that if he was in this game it would have shipped so many copies than it has so far. OK that enough of dwelling on the fact that the game is out of date, so hows the gameplay? One major issue that F1 game developers have is finding a balance between realism and entertainment. For those of you ... Read the complete review

Formula One Championship Edition was one of the first games i bought for my PS3 about a year ago. As a fan of F1, for me it was a no brainer (after seeing reviews and videos on youtube). The graphics are pretty amazing compared to some of the other racing games available. The attention to detail on the cars are top class. In F1 games of old, this hasn't been the case at all - with the paint job being the only way to differentiate the cars. The physics were, and still are great. Especially so when you turn off all aids, traction control etc. The car becomes a complete handful, and becomes more of a challenge which is great for when you "grow ... Read the complete review

formula one really is a great game. its just got all you need. great racing experience, great communications and really good pit stops! this is a definate for all F1 fans the only thing missing is the commentator from the old games that shouted "he's hit the barrier" or "it's schumacher!". the graphics of the game are really good. the cars themself are stunning and the scenery is really realistic. when you look at the circuit before the track you can really pay attention to all the detail of the terrain and scenery! the controls of the game are very easy and there are lots of optional hints such as a virtual racing line that has colour to let you know Read the complete review

I cannot believe that all this time later, this game is still around the £40 mark in a lot of shops. It is a decent racer, but not £40 decent. £15 maybe. Here are my reasons: -The teams, racers, tracks etc are now quite out dated. -I found the game very hard to get into, and for someone who is not acquainted with the various terminology of Formula One a lot of the technical features (such as tweaking your car) meant very little to me. I probably missed a lot of the fun in the game because of it. -It's difficult! I know, there should be a challenge in games, but it sucked the fun out of it a little bit. I finished last in most races at anything other ... Read the complete review

Formula one at its oh so very best. One of the first games i owned on the Playstation 3, and it made me realise why the playstation 3 was so expensive to buy at first. Ok, it doesnt have Lewis Hamilton in it, but this game was made before he was the start he is now. The game is simply awesome, with all the teams from that season of Formula 1 in it, with graphics looking absolutely stunning. Cars looks so realistic and when you fly past the likes of Alonso you know its him, as you can tell by his helmet!!! AMAZING DETAIL there. Track selection is also good with every track looking amazingly like its real version and when ... Read the complete review
