News: Announced less than half an hour ago and fans are already a little upset, Codemasters are working on the cartoony F1 Race Stars.
Codemasters are known for making serious F1 games, po-faced rally games, authentic shooter games, and now bubbly cartoon kart racers…
Yeah, the news that Codemasters are developing F1 Race Stars – a racing game featuring bobble-headed reincarnations of Vettel, Hamilton, and Alonso – hasn’t been met with unmitigated joy. The source of this seems to be that the announcement wasn’t Grid 2 (which had been rumoured to be in the works – it likely still is). We don’t know much about it but the PR does feature one of the best lines “Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel have been transformed into personality-packed heroes”. Now that is a transformation (ho ho ho, wry wit alert).
