    The makings of a great sim let down by terrible AI and scrappy graphics. [Christmas 2011, p.75]

    It's hard to recommend a version with so many problems. Sometimes it works well, but overall, it is a broken experience.

    Sumo Digital should be commended for its attempts to pack as much as humanely possible into a Nintendo 3DS game. However, despite its wealth of options, game modes and extras, F1 2011 fails where it counts most, on the race track.

    While its ambition should surely be commended and the time trials and multiplayer admittedly soften the blow somewhat, F1 2011 is, unfortunately, not the game to remedy matters. Unless you're a fan of frustrating ugly racers with brutally unrealistic and aggressive opponent AI, we advise that you steer well clear of it. Maybe next year, Codemasters will release the game that F1 fans deserve.

    There is some fun to be had from time trial, challenges and the tracks that work properly. And with the penalties switched off, it almost passes as some crazy, incident-filled version of F1. But if you're after an authentic racing sim on 3DS, best wait a little longer, cos this most certainly ain't it.

    I can't believe this game is so low-rated !?!?!? I don't give a 10 simply because I couldnt have the opportunity to test the multiplayer, otherwise, if you are a racing and/or Formula one fan, this is THE game to own on a portable system.
    The graphics are stunning, the mix between racing sim and arcade suits perfectly the system, and this game is full loaded of stuff to do. I already played 20 hours and I only completed like 15 % of the game. Please don't listen to these reviews and give F1 2011 a try, it really is worth it.

    This game is great for what is in my opinion it controls great it plays great and is great for a bit, but the season mode gets boring no one plays multiplayer and it feels cramped, this game should have ventured off on its own path but it didn't. The reason this is a 7 is because this wasn't meant to be ground breaking or astounding its a mobile version of a huge title and its great for short game sprees and to just relax with from time to time I say the gameplay is better than the console version Full Review »

    I don't see anything wrong with this game. It's really good! Even the graphics are nice regarding other racing games like "Ridge Racer 3D". We can feel the sensation of play a F-1 season. It surprised me and I'm very happy! Full Review »
