Eurogamer have posted a positive preview of F1 Race Stars, describing it as F1 Meets Mario Kart that may even mirror aspects of the real world series (not the driver’s big heads of course!):
F1 Race Stars plays fully as you’d expect a Mario Kart clone to, though it’s surprising how well those disparate elements come together. The half-baked observation that F1′s becoming more like a video game in recent years is revealed to have a fair bit of weight: Nintendo’s template fits as snugly around the technical intricacies of the sport’s contemporary make-up as a nomex glove.
Races are brash and chaotic, and while the handling lacks some of the depth of a Mario Kart, F1 Race Stars has it where it counts. There’s character in abundance, and it should make for a disarmingly charming offshoot of Codemasters’ official series.
F1 Race Stars looks to be an excellent way to share the fun of virtual racing with family and friends.
