Formula 1 Sensation (NES review)

Developer: Konami
Publisher: Palcom
Released: 1993

Formula 1 Sensation is a racing game that was only released in Europe and Japan.

+ Course design is diverse and the meaty Grand Prix mode offers passwords to continue your progress at a later date.

+ Plenty of vehicle customisation options, and the random weather shifts challenge you to change strategy on the fly.

+ Includes many famous F1 drivers and the action is blisteringly fast once you learn which corners to take without breaking.

+ A unique feature is the ability to purposely make contact with an opponent in an attempt to damage or retire their car.

+ Constant visual indicator of damaged parts is handy and your HUD even lets you know when other drivers have pitted.

- There's an alarming amount of sprite flicker on CPU cars, which can be distracting when trying to overtake them.

- Graphics are average and the track-side scenery is visually unappealing due to flickering pixels and garish colour schemes.
