GamesDomain have posted a review of F1 2002 (unfortunately by a different person who wrote their Grand Prix 4 review), giving it 4.5/5.0.
If you've played the game, you'll probably realise that the person who writes this review really doesn't have much clue about some aspects of the game.
Visual quality is another aspect of the game worthy of note. The depiction of speed is remarkably life-like. It's reminiscent of riding in a car as a child, in that everything seems to be locked in place when you're gazing forward, but flying past at a frightening pace when you look to the side. Cars add to the realism factor. Each vehicle is drawn with an eye on its real-world counterpart, resulting in numerous instant-replay screens that would make great posters for your garage wall. Cockpits even feature the latest in high-tech gizmos being employed by real Formula One drivers. Tracks have been livened up with lots of scenery, including crowds, backdrop buildings, cranes, billboard advertisements, and more.You can read the full review here.
