Review: F1 Race Stars | Stevivor.com

Reviewer Nicholas Simonovski writes, "I sometimes approach a new Codemasters’ racing title with some form of scepticism. While they’ve been responsible for some of this generation’s most enjoyable games (think Colin McRae DiRT, Race Driver GRID and F1 2012), they’ve also had a track record for ruining what were once respectable franchises as well (just think what of what a shamble DiRT 2 was for the Colin McRae series). I was therefore somewhat confused when the announcement of F1 Race Stars was made earlier this year. Was it going to be a fun game, or much like DiRT Showdown, or an addition to a franchise that wasn’t really necessary? Needless to say, my opinion was essentially made-up when I selected Mark Webber for my first race and heard the most rubbish stereotypical Australian accent I’ve ever seen in a game. Let me elaborate." (F1 Race Stars, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 1/10

Stopped reading when you said Dirt2 was a shambles.

I liked Dirt 2, but I can see why he might hold that opinion. Having America and the X Games shoved down your throat was pretty jarring for fans of the very Eurocentric (prior to the "Dirt" moniker) Colin McRae series.

did not like X games, but dirt 2 is a decent game, and this is not a 1.

I'd rate it about 6.
