CodemastersRacing has revealed a Kart style official F1 racer, being released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this November.

 

F1 RACE STARS will deliver formula fun on every straight, hairpin, jump and loop-the-loop with super-fast racing and a range of power-ups for players to collect and deploy as they sprint for the chequered flag ahead of their rivals.

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. Friends and family can share the fun too; F1 RACE STARS will deliver 4-player split-screen racing and 12-player competition alongside an extensive career mode featuring a number of Championships.

on each course theres a super-mega shortcut, which usually cuts out about half the track. theyre always locked unless you pick up the key hidden somewhere else on the course (which leaves a trail of little keys, so you know which driver has it, and who to hit so they drop it ;)).

 

if you have the key you cant fire weapons and if you get hit you lose it. on most courses the key reappears after each lap, but sometimes its only once per race.

yeah thats it, youre right 8). each key kinda suits the track and the gate it passes through. so the pilots helmet is the key on the Great Britain course, and once you have it you can use the shortcut which passes through a big plane on one of the runways :)

 

on Germany the key looks like a coat of arms and can pass through an iron gate that goes through the castle.

Ah right.

 

Well I've either found the key and not the hole or found the keyhole and not the key.

 

Its kinda hard considering the pace and crazyness of it all.

 

I gotta say I am really enjoing F1 Race Stars.

 

I've been playing Season mode with the missus, unlocking levels and all sorts.  It can be really tough and frantic but oh so much fun.  Lots of variety in game modes too.

 

It's a shame it's not all 22 drivers at once though and only 12.  Also when playing in teams, I don't understand why it's not Red Bull vs Mclaren vs Ferrari etc.  The teams are just randomised drivers pairing up.

 

I'm worse in a team than I am going solo though.  Going solo we finish 1st and 2nd often.  Going as a team one of us tends to finish near the back of the pack thus dragging other player down.  Kinda annoying.

 

Very addictive little game and one of if not the best karting game I've played to be honest.  Anywho don't forget you can find the Q&A with the developers about the game here:

hehe yeah, we found that too xD.

 

thought the hardest tournaments were the realistic ones with fragile damage and no weapons, catching up with the leaders was super tough.

Aww man don't get me started on that mode!

 

The AI is so frustratingly evil.

When picking a driver does anyone know what the different accessories do?
I've got Toolkit, Stars, Royal, Feathers but can't work out the difference or find it anywhere on the internet, any ideas?

From what I remember you have to get gold on all track time trials to get the trophy.
Also there are ongoing problems regarding uploading the times, codemasters are aware of this.
