F1 Race Stars gets demo and new trailer

Codemasters has revealed that it'll release a demo for F1 Race Stars starting from today on Xbox LIVE.

The demo will also be available for PS3 and Steam from tomorrow, while North American PS3 owners will be able to get hold of it from next Wednesday.

In the demo players you'll be allowed to take control of Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel or Kimi Raikkonen and compete with other official and fictional F1 drivers.

This will give you a chance to check out F1 themed power-ups, allowing you call on a box of tricks, such as summoning Wet Weather to slow the pack, deploying DRS to speed past rivals and being able to trap other drivers with bubbles. You can even drop by the pit and fix up your car.

Sounds good doesn't it? Well make sure you report back next week when we'll have a full review.

Check out the trailer below.

Just had a quick blast, could be decent with friends. Just can't see it doing well so soon after NFS and Horizon. Sharpish price drop, I reckon.

Going to download this and give it a try, kinda reminds me of a Mario Kart game.

I like the idea of this game. People need to remember this is aimed more at casual gamers/kids who like F1 but don't like sim racers like the actual F1 games. I'll give the demo a go as it could be fun, but I forsee it struggling to sell and going cheap fairly rapidly!

Played this at Eurogamer... it's fun, but unfortunately if you strip the F1 license away it's just another plain kart racer.
