Oct 11, 2010In short words, this game is a BETA. The damage system is worse than psx games, your car is practically a tank even with full damage enabled and you can only break the fornt wing. The IA is stupid, CPU controlled cars runs in the same way in non-timed laps or even with damages, the IA is inconstat between tracks, some are really hard and other really easy, and additionally his qualify are fakes, you can find more info about that in lot of websites. The penalty system is also stupid and ignores a lot of F1 rules and also there is no safety car. The car physics are unrealistic even with full simulation enabled, if your car is spining simply push the brake and it magically aims to the right direction again in milisecons, you can also full brake for long without skid, and if you full throttle there is some kind or awful auto-clutch.
The pad controls are bad calibrated, with both xbox and ps3 controllers, the direction respond in abrupt way and the throttle only respond in the last half range.
There is no telemetry to know how good are yours car adjusts so isn't possibe to fine tune your car. Online play works leaky or simply doesn't work.
You want more? waste your money in this game and you'll find thousands of bugs making this game unplayable and a lot of unfinished stuff.… Expand
Nov 6, 2010This game had a really great potential to be the best F1 game to date. It's true that at first it seems that way. The visuals, the sounds of the cars, the presentation, everything is there. The game seems to capture that feeling of glamour that F1 has. The weather effects are truly spectacular. Unfortunately the game fails in its core, the gameplay. Apart from the numerous bugs the game shipped with (although most of them are fixed after the patch release) the game is really frustrating to drive with a controller. I can't say if its the same with a wheel as I don't own one but the one most annoying thing about the driving is that the car spin outs are completely WRONG and mostly RANDOM. Yes, you'll find yourself braking late at a turn, leave the throttle, take the turn and BANG you'll spin out just by turning at a very low speed without throttle. It's extremely frustrating to try to make good consistent laps only to have a random spin out and lose places/time. This really ruins it for me, maybe it won't for you but I had to warn everyone interested in buying this game.… Expand
