GAME REVIEW: F1 2002

The EA Sports F1 2002 is one of the best F1 games released by Electronic Arts. The best part is that the controls are simple and the handling of the cars is good. Since it was made in 2002 the old qualifying rules are used and new driver like Fernando Alonso are not included in the game. Teams like Arrows, Minardi (today’s Torro Rosso Crosworth ) and Jordan (today’s Spyker Racing team) are included in this version. But that doesn’t hamper the joy and concentration involved in playing the game. New circuits like Sakhir in Bahrain, the one at Shanghai (China) and the circuit at Istanbul, Turkey are not included in the game. The Game Menu-
The game comes with a telemetry feature, which gives you all telemetry data for your car on a particular lap including fuel load, tire tread and brake temperatures. The game is very close to real F1 racing as you can enable damage on accidents, fuel consumption and tire wear. The car handling turns horrible when your tires develop blisters and your car spins a lot in this case. You can enjoy racing simulation with cockpit and inner cockpit view. You can enhance your game play by changing audio to pit radio and by increasing the speech content. This is a good game if you are a true F1 fan. You can also capture some screenshots by pressing F12 key.
