F1 Race Stars review | Thunderbolt

Is there any clearer sign of a generation’s twilight than the return of spoof and parody? Codemasters Racing’s Formula 1 titles have been one of the undisputed successes of recent years, injecting a sense of speed that only arcade racers have been able to capture. Given theirs and the sport’s success since 2010, stepping sideways and reaching out to a new audience was somewhat inevitable. F1 Race Stars is a demonstration that parody and charm alone cannot validate a mechanically shallow game.

[Stuart Edwards, Thunderbolt] (F1 Race Stars, Xbox 360) 4/10
