F1 2009 Wii Review


Ever since Codemasters announced that they had grabbed the rights to develop Formula One games, I've been very excited by the prospect. The British publisher and developer certainly know what they are doing when it comes to motor sport, with a long...

Problems aside, the use of the licence means that – pleasing to fans – all the drivers, teams and tracks are in there from the 2009 season, but, more importantly, F1 2009 is a game that handles well and mostly moves at a scary speed. True, it's not...

F1 2009


While there is fun to be had in F1 2009, it's a long way from being a faithful reproduction of the pinnacle of motorsport.

Comprehensive selection of cars and drivers ; Good feeling of speed ; Longevity

Poor collision physics ; Race engineer is poorly implemented

F1 2009


It's been a long time since us Formula One fans had a new console game to shout about, hasn't it? Way back when the PS3 came out Studio Liverpool quietly released Formula One: Championship edition to reasonable acclaim and then sat back as Sony's...

F1 2009 [Wii] Review


Satisfy your need for speed and get your hands on an F1 car.

Ability to create your own career; Fun multiplayer mode; Difficult at first making for good simulation; Lots of car and track options to customise your race

No online mode; Some lagging within the game; Not as visually pleasing as other racing games on other consoles; In-game data already out of date

F1 2009 (Wii)


There are particular certainties in the video games industry: many movies will have diabolical game tie-ins, and the sports around the world will continue to have their virtual representations for many moons to come. It was with such weighty thoughts...

Career Mode ; Responsive Controls ; F1 game for the Wii ; Reasonable graphics ; Highly customisable difficulty

Not up-to-date ; Frame rate issues

F1 2009 is certainly an enjoyable title for the Wii, and while not doing anything exciting and new for the race game genre, it is playable and quite capable of providing an F1 racing fix before the next season starts. Sadly the game suffers from being...

F1 2009 (Wii) Review


There aren't many options for F1 racing fans on the console but can this Codemaster's release fill that void?

This game is made specifically for one type of person – F1 racing fans. Unlike other sports titles which try to appeal to a cross section of the gaming community, if you’re not a Formula One racing fan then you will not want to pick up this game. On...

F1 2009 Review


Sometimes ya just need to drive around.

Easy to learn controls

Every car is essentially the same; Nothing interesting except the license; Where's the car damage

F1 2009 Review


Codemasters new F1 game is definitely more 'arcade' than simulator.

Although F1 2009 includes most elements of what a true racing simulator has, it’s definitely not one, with each part lacking any true depth. Instead what we have here is an arcade F1 game, and it’s a reasonable one at that. It’s probably a better...

F1 2009


A racing title that's less than a simulation, with charm that wears off before the champion is crowned.

Career mode is enjoyable ; Nice use of real-world details ; Game is simple and fun overall

Has the trappings of a racing simulation, but it is definitely not one ; Graphics are underwhelming ; Get boring after a while

I'm surprised they didn't ban it.
