In-depth Review: F1 Race Stars - Electronic Theatre

Despite the unending popularity of Nintendo’s lead franchises it would seem that fewer publishers are attempting to try and mimic their formulas on current-generation systems than has previously been the case. In contrary to the state of ‘me-too’ mobile gaming, the nigh-on seven years that the Xbox 360 has been available for has only brought one Super Smash Bros. clone and three Mario Kart inspired franchises to the console, and the PlayStation 3 will only go one better with the forthcoming launch of PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. Some would suggest this is due to a lack of demand on high-definition (HD) consoles, others would say that few developers can match Nintendo’s weight pound-for-pound. Electronic Theatre is most certainly in the latter camp, but there are a few who can stand-up square to first-party productions, if not surpass them. (F1 Race Stars, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 82/100
