    F1 2012 It's a good Formula 1 game in general, with some stupid bugs that annoy the hell out of me (like front wing shadow staying on when you lost the wing or the crappy IA or the never ending unfair penalties or the wet rubbers behaving like soft ones). But in general the driving experience and the filling of driving in the F1 Championship allows to put aside those quirks.

    But if you own F1 2010 or 11 there is no 60€ worth new value in here. I would for for an payed update. But charging again for a full price is just stealing.

    Sorry CM. You lost me in this one...

    A beautiful looking game with some great visuals and wonderful physics. This is a game for serious racers only (unless you are actually going to buy a F1 game and leave all the helps on) as the qualifying and tuning required at higher difficulties makes the game difficult to just pick-up and play.

You pick it up and devote the next several hours to getting the car right and hoping you don't ruin all your hard work crashing in the race. So very much like the real thing.
    Also, the sensation of speed is like no other game I have played before.

    Excellent racer, not noob friendly.

    I would have liked to see a Team Manager mode where you take control of the team and manage the resources, directions, and sponsorship without ever racing.

    For hard-core auto racing gamers, especially those that love Formula 1, Codemasters once again has a fuel-charged and totally immersive, realistic racing simulation in F1 2012 that has everything a F1 fanatic could want.

    Codemasters once again proves their worth in the racing genre with undoubtedly the best of their F1 series to date.

    Formula 1 2012 is a great F1 racing simulator, but it's only an okay game. For a title that aims to be approachable to all audiences, it has failed in that regard, but for those who are racing fanatics and crave a realistic immersion into the F1 world, F1 2012 is the game for you.
