  1. An impressive attempt to cram the full F1 season into a Nintendo 3DS.

    The Challenges mode will keep petrolheads busy. [Feb 2012, p.100]

    F1 is definitely not for everyone. I probably won't get too much more play time out of it, since Mario Kart is also on my shelf, and that's more my speed. Still, the serious racing fan will likely get a kick out of this one.

    Sumo Digital unsuccessfully tries to imitate the Codemasters F1 2011's success in a game that wants to be a simulator, but results a mediocre arcade with poor graphics that we can't recommend to fans.

    a stuttering start for F1 on the 3DS.

    An incredible, for all the wrong reasons, AI literarly kills an otherwise surprising conversion.

    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.

    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! Expand

    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 Expand
