Ken McKown writes: I love a good kart racer. Ever since the inception of Mario Kart, the genre has remained in the background of console after console, usually entertaining, rarely agitating. It also knows no bounds. You can make a kart racer out of almost any theme; case in point, F1 Race Stars. I literally had no idea this game was coming out until about a month ago, and even then still couldn’t fathom the idea of Indy car racing, in kart form. Be that as it may, F1 Race Stars is full of charm, but also several obscure design decisions that hold it back.
