IMG Reviews F1 Championship Season 2000
12:57 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review of F1 Championship Season 2000. Published by Feral Interactive, F1 has the unique distinction of being the first game ever to support force-feedback on the Mac.

Here's a clip from the review:

Even those who consider themselves expert racers might consider taking a turn or two in the training school to get a handle on the game's controls and calibrations. Outside of the school, there are five game modes to explore: quick race, test day, Grand Prix, championship and multiplayer. Each of the modes offers a sequentially more difficult challenge to the budding racer, as well as adding formalities like qualifiers and warm ups.

Formula One is an amazingly intricate sport, which depends entirely on your intimate knowledge of the track, as well as your ability to successfully pull off a number of tricky turns and maneuvers. Those who are used to arcade racers where you can hold the throttle to the floor and steer your way around your opponents to victory need not apply. Cars in F1 Championship can and will become damaged in spin-outs, and the pit crew is your friend in these times of need. You quickly learn the seemingly simple lesson that if you hear your tires squealing, you're not going to be able to steer. Traction is a good thing.

For more, be sure to check out the entire review.
