F1 Race Stars - kart racing game

F1 Race Stars - PC: "User Experience To anyone who has played a kart racing game before, whether based on plumbers, primates or anything else they will immediately feel at home in Race Stars, in fact the only hit we really get is how to use KERS on corners... everything else falls into place itself. ... never left to think for long about the insanity that is going on around us. If there is anything that gives Race Stars its own feel it is that braking is more of a requirement here than most kart racers, especially on some of the more demanding hairpins. Video options are few and far between, everyone is getting the same graphical experience here with the game running at a solid 60fps on our GTX 680. Elsewhere the cars actually look rather good, some of the more life like art in the game with the racers all having an over the top look of the real person about them. Sound too is hyper exaggerated with the likes of Sebastian Vettel having a stereotypical German voiceover, Paul Di Resta going down the cliche Scots route for his voice clips. . . .  "
