"Solid racer but one only suitable for the niche F1 gamer, not a casual lover of the racing genre. The F1 'feel' is realistic and racing from the bumpy cockpit view is awesome. Accurate track layouts yet backgrounds are dull and racing them doesn't engage like a F-Zero or MK64 track. Advice: conquer the challenges but turn down that incessant droning of the vehicle!"

"This was (in my opinion) the best F1 game around in 1998! The handling was spot on, and you cannot beat racing on accurate replicas of real world tracks! Whilst the multiplayer wasn't nearly as engaging as other titles, the challenge mode was a satisfying and rewarding way to extend your play time! The N64 was blessed with great F1 racers, this was sensational!"
"While most of the Nintendo64's racing library was rooted in fantasy, F1 came round to give the N64 a taste of reality. With all the courses, solid handling and a plethora of adjustable settings, F1 was a decent simulator of the sport that has plenty to offer racing fans at the time. However, the game has become quite outdated compared to other N64 racers."
"The handling is fun and satisfying and there is a genuine sense of speed. The soundtrack is fitting and sound effects are excellent. Challenge mode brings the season to life. However, the cars are too strong in withstanding crashes and the AI is unremarkable, though challenging. Overall it (and its superior sequel) captures the thrill of F1 in a genre that can feel vacant."
"I have fond memories of this game. This was one of the first N64 games that I owned, and I used to play it with my dad quite a lot. That said, I wouldn't dream of playing it any more. This is a pretty solid F1 game, but I have very little interest in racers. Worth a play for racing fans though, I reckon."
