I love my motorsports and racing games that simulate them... but most of all, I love Formula 1. It's been years since I've played a current F1 game because I don't like Sony products (never owned any version of Playstation), and Sony has held the exclusive rights with F1 for the last 5+ years (last non-Sony title would be EA's F1 99-02 Challenge released in early 2003). But now their license has run out, and Codemasters (of GRID and DIRT fame) has bought the rights to Formula 1 games. I'm really waiting for the F1 2010 game release on the Xbox 360 (expected in Spring of 2010), as nothing beats racing simulations with my Microsoft 360 FFB wheel on it's stand. But with F1 2009 being exclusive to Wii (and PSP) there is no reason I wouldn't give this game a chance. Most Wii racing games are best left arcade style; Mario Kart, NASCAR Kart racing, NFS Nitro. The ones that try to be simulation (like Ferrari Challenge & MotoGP 08) usually don't do very well because the wiimote steering and gas/brake controls aren't as precise as a simulation racer needs them to be. I hope F1 2009 for Wii will find a nice balance between Arcade (to make controls easy and playable with the wiimote) and Simulation (so you have to hit your braking points right, and maybe chance for crashes/damage if you really mess up). Anyone else anticipating F1 2009's release this coming week?
