The Portable Gamer writes: "Who doesn't like racing games? I know I do. I'm less of a fan of racing in real life, and so I know very little about formula one racing. I was a little out of my element when it came to some portions of F1 2009 for the PSP. You don't have to be a major fan of formula one racing to enjoy the game, but it wouldn't hurt. The game strives to be as realistic a simulation as possible. While this is more difficult on the portable platform, the game for the most part succeeds. However, I spent a lot of time figuring out parts of the game that were poorly documented and it got pretty frustrating."
