Further the difficulty for easy, hard and legend are taken from "True To Life AI", medium (intermediate) has been set to custom semi-pro values.

    This mod is undoubtedly great for the many things it delivers.

    Firstly, it gives us the chance to play in one of the best seasons ever and it may even challenge the new F1 2013's content, which in my opinion just fails to deliver what this mod does: chance to race the 1990's career (I mean, with all the pilots and cars).

    In second, the level of detail is really incredible; all the cars and garages are really well done and some other things as the menus (to choose car, track and the career's menu).

    What now may be a 'con', it's the fact that the multiplayer and proving grounds are not working, so it may keep a lot of players (those who mostly enjoy multiplayer races) from using it.
    Though if one day the possibility to race online comes, then it shall be even better.
    Nonetheless, I'm giving 5 stars for it's a really great mod and as I don't enjoy racing online (I'm just a casual gamer), for me it's everything I need - the chance to remember and race in a season which brings memories of my youth.

    Highly recommended.
