Gear up for one of the most hotly anticipated racing releases of the year, with the SCEE-developed Formula One 2001. Following in the footsteps of the 2000 edition, which takes franchise sales to 5.5 million copies worldwide, this game is an officially licensed product of the 2001 season, featuring all the 11 teams, 22 drivers and 17 tracks of the competition. And with 50 fps of intense racing at over 200mph, Formula One 2001 fully utilises the processing power of the PS2 system.
But what of the nitty-gritty features that set this game apart from its competitors? Well, first off, this being a truly international game, exclusive commentary comes courtesy of English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Finnish commentators. Moving on to the drivers, enhanced AI means that your man vividly portrays a variety of emotions, such as rivalry, aggression, experience and determination. Regards the cars, a vast array of breakable car parts is featured, as well as an extensive set of potential car failures which can affect your car's performance and handling.
Furthermore, you'll also be hindered by the whole gamut of weather conditions, which can impact upon track conditions and change during the course of a race weekend, or even during the race itself. A range of views mean that you can play the game from the many different angles that you would view on Formula One television broadcasts.
