F1 RACE STARS is a racing game by Codemasters Racing Studios in Birmingham, UK, the home of the BAFTA award-winning series of Official FORMULA ONE games, and was created under exclusive worldwide agreement with Formula One World Championship Limited.
F1 RACE STARS delivers formula fun on every level with super-fast racing challenges and a range of power-ups for players to collect and deploy as they sprint for the chequered flag ahead of their rivals.
During the game we play the role of well-known Formula One drivers (including Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso) and drive funny miniature cars under the Ferrari or McLaren brand. Despite the fact that the race tracks are modelled on the existing ones, they do not resemble classic tracks. During the competition you may encounter such surprises as spikes, complicated loops or corkscrews. There are also a variety of assistive devices on the road that help the player to achieve victory.
F1 RACE STARS will take players on a world tour of iconic FORMULA ONE locations, including Monaco, Silverstone and the new Circuit of Americas in Austin, Texas, recreated as fantastical racing circuits built for speed and wheel-to-wheel competition. F1 RACE STARS has a 4-player split-screen racing mode and 12-player competition mode alongside an extensive career game mode which features a decent number of various Championships. The authors have created beautiful, stylized graphics with an incredible wealth of colors, which can be enjoyed by both the youngest and the slightly older race fans.
