Thanks to Andrew Cooper (aka Go Alesi) we have posted a comparison between F1 Challenge '99-'02, and Grand Prix 4.
For the first time in the EA F1 series, there's some intelligence in the AI. They no longer make their own path around the tracks, and you can actually race them! Yep, no joke! They start well too, so it's harder to get from last to first in a matter of seconds like previously.. It's now quite hard to make up places at the start. The problem was that the top speeds, particularly at the pre-2002 Hockenheim, were too low. I downloaded a fix for this (made by DaHas and available at the m4driving website). This solved the problem instantly.You can read the full comparison here. Don't forget to post your comments on our forums.
