Watch out Mario, looks like you may just be beat to pole position as there is a new kart game in town and it looks, sounds and plays well, really well. F1 Race Stars has been developed and published by Codemasters and was released on 16th November to very little fanfare, which is disappointing considering just how much fun this title really is.
If you’re a fan of Mario kart racing then you know what’s coming. In fact this is very similar in game play and feel. F1 Race Stars is based (if only loosely) on the 2012 Formula One series and allows players to join Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel in a cartoony world racing against all our favourite racing superstars and teams including Mercedes, McLaren and Red Bull Racing. Each of the F1 circuits have been recreated in a colourful, vibrant fun way ensuring (and I promise you this) hours of karting fun. 8.5/10
