    Codemasters showed us a sneak peek at the new F1 Race Stars earlier today via the frontpage. What are your thoughts?



    I think Codies wants to familiarize younger generations with the sport to increase their target audience in the long term. Also, by releasing a mass game now they potentially get more out of their license. :)

    Someone at CM must have had an Eureka Moment and decided to mix Mario Kart with Mod Nation Racers and TrackMania :)

    The above plus just the Formula One name is of course a guaranteed sales hit. Still think they got the inspiration of the characters from @Omer Said his RaceCarToons:

    This cars look more proportioned than the real ones.

    Not really safe for the head though, I can't imagine if the poor HAM goes upside down on this :p

    This game looks like it could be more fun than their realistic F1 2012 will be. I think I might get this one and even skip F1 2012.

    These look great :)

    This might be hugely fun and popular, if they do it right. Mario kart type of thing, with decent multiplayer, and a pinch of TF2-like humour. I'd buy it :D

    If it's anywhere near as fun as Mario Kart then I know my kids will love it:).
