Oh Joy! Another racing title! Even though we have seen, played and threw away other racing games, this one does have all the cool, nifty options that make this one different from all the others! The control is really tuned up so things get quite hectic at the push of a button, plus the graphics are decent. A little bit of choppiness can be seen as the track moves and side objects pass you, but it still isn't bad at all.
As a racing fan, I'm glad to see Formula 1 Grand Prix is a good simulator and actually fun to play. The landscape scrolls by smoothly and the computer controller drivers are tough! The amount of changes you can make to your car is kinda low, but it keeps you from getting bogged down with technical garbage. If you think you're good enough, give the Turbo Mode a try. The detail is toned down, but it's ballistic!
By far, this is one of the best racing games that I've played on the Genesis in a long time. The game play is incredible and the number of options available keeps things interesting. I love the Turbo Mode because the action really starts to fly when you get into 5th gear. This driver is actually Activator friendly, and if you don't mind looking silly, it can be a lot of fun. Smooth graphics are the highlight of this intense cart.
Another so-so racing game that, once again, puts you behind the wheel while you watch the track come at you as you drive. Although it's not on par with F-Zero, this game has all the options to be expected and racing fans may definitely want to give it a look. There is a little choppiness as the track and objects on the sides come at you, but the control is precise enough to keep things from getting too frustrating.
