The Portable Gamer iPhone Review: BMW Sauber F1 Team Racing '09

TPG writes: "As a fan of Formula 1 as well as racing in general, I was hoping that this would be the must have racing game on my iPod Touch, but it falls a little short of that goal.

If ever there was a game that does exactly what it says on the tin, then it would have to be BMW Sauber F1 Team Racing '09. Though the title may not be catchy, it's definitely descriptive. As you'd expect from the less than subtle branding, the game is based around the BMW Sauber F1 team's '09 roster of Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica, either of whom are available to play as in one of the game's several modes.

The game itself doesn't try to re-invent the wheel; it's very much a by the book Formula 1 game condensed into portable sized pieces and making use of features you'd expect from an iPod Touch and iPhone. Both the accelerometer and touch screen have a strong presence in the control of the game, but in a way that feels both fun and challenging in equal measure and whilst it's not hard to use, it may be impossible to master."
