Video: F1 Race Stars Gives The F1 Experience a Karting Makeover

98w ago - Codemasters Game Designer Simon Berry has posted up a video today showcasing a kart makeover in F1 Race Stars below.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] are well known for creating racing games with lots of depth, and in many ways our brief for F1 Race Stars (out on PS3 November 20th today) was no different.

When designing the game's structure we intended to provide ongoing variety as crucially as the instant appeal you'd expect from a "karting" game.

Firstly, along with the typical race event, we have introduced a host of other modes of racing. There are eight in total, each requiring unique skills and strategy – some will feel instantly familiar to gamers, and some will feel entirely fresh and unique.

For example, we've introduced Refuel mode - based on the principles of fuel strategy in F1, where fuel re-stocks are placed around the track, but carrying less fuel means more speed. Or Trophy Chase mode, a smash and grab event where players collect trophies, found both on the track and stolen from other drivers.

Gamers should feel instantly at home with other modes such as Sector Snatch mode, where players can own sectors of each track by setting the fastest split time though it, or racing in a classic Elimination mode.

Below are the details, to quote: The first part of the year has been quite busy for Ridge Racer and it is not over: we have prepared two very special Ridge Racer releases on PlayStation Network for the upcoming season!

First, we're quite excited to release Ridge Racer 7 3D license version. In the past, Ridge Racer has kept a tradition of being a launch title for new platforms, so Ridge Racer 7 was naturally the best candidate to become our first digital version of a PS3 game. For the occasion, we've also added the 3D licence in this new version for those of you who'd like to give it a try.

That is if you stay home... or manage to convince whoever you go on holiday with to bring your PS3 in your luggage! However, if you're not-so-comprehensive partner would rather fly away alone than carry you and your beloved home console, just discreetly pack your PS Vita in the bottom of your bag and leave it there until the foamy wavelets reach your feet on the wet sand (but don't drop it at this point).

With the Ridge Racer Ultimate Edition for PS Vita we've lovingly prepared for your travels,...
