F1 Championship Season 2000 is
recently released Formula One racing game, originally published for the PC by Electronic Arts. The game puts you behind the wheel of a high-speed vehicle as you race to the checkered flag on a variety of real-world courses around the world. The game features customizable game play features and real world teams like Ferrari, McLaren, and more. The game also features multiplayer support for two to eight players over Local Area Networks (LANs).
Despite the title of the game, Feral just published the Mac conversion of this title this month, using last week’s MacExpo 2002 in London to publicly debut the finished product. A playable 42MB demo version of the game
is ready for download
from Macgamefiles.com. (Try cranking up the detail settings if you’re disappointed with the quality of the graphics the first time you play, by the way.)
While Feral is actively publishing the game and promoting it abroad, F1 Championship Season 2002 is part of a multi-title deal between MacPlay and Feral
announced in October. The deal provides MacPlay with North American distribution rights to several Feral titles like previously released works including Sheep and Black & White, along with future games like Worms Blast and the Creature Isle expansion pack for Black & White.
F1 Championship Season 2000 calls for a PowerPC G3/500MHz or faster; Mac OS 9.1 or higher (including Mac OS X 10.1 or higher); 3D graphics card with 32MB VRAM or more; 256MB RAM; 1GB hard disk space. MacPlay said the game can also be ordered from their online store — visit their Web site for details. It retails for US$49.99.
