    PROS: New handling system, now throttle and steering is smooth and progressive. // Improved c0ckpit view. // Much better IA. // Great kers as DRS implementations. CONS: Sub-HD graphics with no alising at all, much worse than 2010 release, all is totally blurred 25 meters away and causes headaches. // Stupid penalty system that allow users to cut corners. // CPU cars are extremely fast inPROS: New handling system, now throttle and steering is smooth and progressive. // Improved c0ckpit view. // Much better IA. // Great kers as DRS implementations.

    F1 2011 my personal review and feelings from experience of playing over almost year in this game.

    First of all I will say I'm disappointed. This is one of the games which should be unique and amazing. and this game could be but if will be developed by other company not codemasters. Single player mode in this game is quiet interesting and brings fun but in the first 1 or 2 seasons in
    F1 2011 my personal review and feelings from experience of playing over almost year in this game.

    First of all I will say I'm disappointed.

    This is one of the games which should be unique and amazing. and this game could be but if will be developed by other company not codemasters.

    Single player mode in this game is quiet interesting and brings fun but in the first 1 or 2 seasons in career mode. for me personally this is too easy. you can go too easily from poor team in to the one of the top ones and also even in poor team you can won the race on the legenend AI's difficult. SHAME.
    in F1 game from Sony the single player was much better because player was able first to do tests in the teams competitive with 2nd driver to show skills etc and then try real race in f1 2011 from codemasters NO! straight away races without nothing. You sing up with Lotus and you start racing in longest 7 seasons mode too short sorry. after 1st season you can have a chance to sing in with much better teams which is ok but not for 100% because in time when you sign in with better team BMW e.g. then you are unbeatable because level of AI's driving is to low way too low. On legend in better team like BMW you can overtake them easily and won every race. so after 2nd season this game become boring!. also not realistic damages of the cars. just front wing looks more realistic but other body car parts no. to damage the car completely you have to hit the wall with 280 km/h in Sony that was much much much better because when you span out and hit the wall your wheels was go of etc. so looks for me more realism to real world f1. No suspension damages such as gear box etc. sometimes punctures but from CODE masters and on this level of game is not enough to satisfy player and sorry but is not worth £40 in UK.

    on of the biggest disappointments, mistakes, bugs etc is multiplayer mode something on what waiting every player. Multiplayer mode in F1 2011 codemasters is CRAP!!!!!!!!!! I donâ

    A lack of sustained excitement and some truly horrendous graphics hold back all the good work. [Issue#211, p.93]

    The big reason to upgrade to this year's version would easily be the online career mode, but otherwise there isn't a whole ton that was really changed, besides polish. All in all, it is still the best F1 game to date and does out do F1 2010.
  3. This years model. F1 2011, improves on last years's game in almost every way: qualifying is real, pitting works, and the handling no longer feels ripped from the Dirt series. [Dec 2011, p.68]
