Formula One Championship Edition was one of the first set of games announced for the PS3, even though its release date wasn't until after the new year, giving gamers plenty of time to speculate and anticipate it's arrival. With all of the bragging about the PS3's technological power, all new racing games have to look nothing short of amazing to even get any notice or playtime. Racing games are one of the few genres where new technology upgrades are easy to notice and evaluate on the spot. Fortunately for F1 Championship Edition, it passes inspection with digital environments that look photorealistic and vehicles that look and handle like their real-world counterparts.

All the Formula One teams, cars and drivers from the 2006 season are represented here, and gamers can choose to race their favorite driver or team for some great racing action. It isn't necessary to be a fan of Formula One to have fun and take advantage of the terrific racing offered here.

Real time Grand Prix racing really puts the pressure on, especially if unexpected crashes or incidents occur that can potentially cost gamers the race. Speaking of crashes, cars take and show damage as well as dust and dirt accumulation throughout the course of the race for that extra real life touch. Crank it up to the next level by turning up the surround sound to feel like you're in the middle of the action. Controls are basic and there is nothing new to master here so it's easy to get right into the action of the game without any tutorials or driving tests. Game modes are pretty standard (Career mode, etc.) and racing is available for single and multiplayer both online and off. Formula One Championship Edition is a solid racer all around, and has enough action to appeal to gamers who don't follow Formula One, and is especially nice for those that do.
