F1 06 Formula One Championship Edition aka F1CE (2006)

8/10

Racing game which gets the racing and sense of speed absolutely right, delivers the best online racing implementation paradigm ever and best back-marker AI for lapped cars (they predictably and courteously ease out of the throttle and move off line) but these outstanding points seems to emphasise other minor shortfalls in presentation, user-friendliness, weather that completely breaks the game (your pit crew refuse to change you on to wet or intermediate tyres and will fuel you three laps short of race distance and won’t let you back in the pits and the AI continues to circulate at dry pace) and the slightly unbalanced difficulty level (a Studio Liverpool tradition).
