Microprose Formula One Grand Prix leaves nothing to your imagination. The
legendary Geoff Crammond, of Revs and Stunt Car Racer fame, has designed the
simulation that puts you right in the driver's seat. However, the simulation
is not just about races, it's an attempt to show the complex decisions that
have to be made by teams when setting-up a car to race on a particular
circuit. Can your car take more wing? Should you re-adjust the gear ratios?
Microprose was founded in 1982 by Sid Meier and Bill Stealey. The company became well known very early with lots of interesting titles, where some of them became a legend. The company was acquired and dismantled in 2004.
I wasted many an hour going round and round on this game.. Broke a few joysticks too :) just did 25 laps or so of monaco and the game has still got it.. Im playing Grand Prix 2012 these days but this one still has touches of class.
