    The cars are faster than ever and feel better to drive than ever thanks to tighter controls and base improvements to the game’s car handling. Equally, the addition of accessibility features like steering help and the casual modes open up F1 2020 to an even wider degree of players, from those with a casual racing interest to people with full-blown personal racing simulators.

    F1® 2020 is an amazing step in the right direction for Codemasters. By adding the My Team mode to the series, it gives this racing game a different personality; one sprinkled with adventure elements, and it works.

    F1 2020 does as much as can be expected from Codemasters, offering an oustanding racing experience on the track. Where it goes further is off of the track, bringing in an incredibly extensive My Team mode, as well as fleshing out the career mode with a full Formula 2 season. With a massive amount of content, great racing and quality throughout, it's hard not to love the game. The only real issue I have is the inclusion of the new Podium Pass (battle pass) system, adding a microtransaction for cosmetics.

    The new "My Team" mode is the biggest innovation (and improvement) in recent years and fits perfectly into the F1 game concept from Codemasters. Apart from that, the many adjustments to the driving experience, penalty system, TV-like presentation and technology add a little extra. F1 2020 is not only the best F1 game, it is also one of the best racing games out there.

    F1 2020 expands the exisiting framework with a new, interesting game mode, which makes it Codemasters‘ best F1 game, yet.

    Overall the game is the same as F1 2019 with some tracks redesigned and with the My Team mode added. It should give people a couple seasons to go through instead of career mode, which is still available for those who want to do both. We may not be too far away from having an F1 motorsport manager game or even an add on if this keeps going, maybe for those more interested in managing rather then racing.

    With F1 2020, the franchise expands on what it does best — realistically simulated F1 experiences with a low barrier for entry and high quality of execution. It also shakes up a lot with the team career mode, but at this stage the thing I really want to see from 2021’s installment would be addressing the persistent, longstanding issues to improve the quality of the experience overall.

    'My team' took an already solid game and made it competitive in a market with the likes of GT and Forza.

    F1 2020 is the best F1 game ever made in history. This not mean that all the previous one were bad, definitely it's not that. But the gameF1 2020 is the best F1 game ever made in history. This not mean that all the previous one were bad, definitely it's not that. But the game follows the evolution of the category in its smallest details and delivers a beautiful experience in gameplay.

    As in the previous games, all the historical cars, the fidelity of the tracks and the drivers are done with excellence. But the best part is the customization of the My Team mode, which allows us to create our own team. As with other sports games, this part of the game is still being improved. They do not allow us more advanced features in management and customization. But the mode has been created with great options that allow a lot of fun for those who like the type.

    But the game is not perfect at all. Customizations are still very simple and tend to improve a lot in the next games in the future. The difficulty is unstable and imprecise, but enough to maintain a good quality standard. Some animations that are still robotic (e.g. journalists) are sometimes uncomfortable. But in general, it is an indispensable game for those who loves Formula 1.

    PS: I still miss the camera further away from the car as in the classic games on PlayStation 1 by Bizarre / Psygnosis.

    In Brazilian Portuguse:

    F1 2020 é o melhor jogo já feito sobre F1 na história. Não se trata de dizer que todos os outros anteriores foram ruins, não é isso. Acontece que o jogo acompanha a evolução da categoria em seus mínimos detalhes e entrega uma belíssima experiência na jogabilidade.

    Assim como nos jogos anteriores, toda a parte de carros históricos, fidelidade das pistas e pilotos é feita com excelência. Mas, o melhor, fica por parte da customização do movo My Team, que nos permite criar nossa própria equipe. Da mesma forma como acontece em outros jogos de esportes, essa parte do jogo ainda está em fase de melhoramento. Eles não nos permitem recursos mais avançados na gestão e customização. Mas o modo já nasceu com ótimas opções que permitem se divertir muito pra quem gosta do tipo.

    Mas nem tudo é perfeito no jogo. As customizações ainda são muito simples e tendem a melhorar muito nos próximos jogos. A dificuldade é instável e imprecisa, mas suficiente pra manter um bom padrão de qualidade. Algumas animações ainda robóticas (como dos jornalistas) incomodam as vezes. Mas, no geral, é um jogo indispensável pra quem gosta de Formula 1.

    Observação pessoal: ainda sinto falta da camera mais afastada do carro como nos jogos clássicos do PlayStation 1 da Bizarre/Psygnosis.

Para los que recién incursionan en el mundo de los F1 de Codemasters, hay cierta facilidad a la hora de aprender las mecánicas, los reglajes y los modos de juego. Mientras que para los que venimos jugando desde hace varias entregas, la simulación está cada vez mejor lograda y más realista que nunca. Pero sin dudas, el mayor acierto de esta entrega es el modo MyClub. Totalmente recomendable. Expand

    Okay, as someone somewhat new to F1 I just have to simply say that F1 2020 is a game that I may or may not have an addiction to. The careerOkay, as someone somewhat new to F1 I just have to simply say that F1 2020 is a game that I may or may not have an addiction to. The career mode (whether you choose traditional or my team) is unbelievable fun, engaging, and realistic. The graphics make the game look beautiful. The online while frustrating some times is still super fun with all of this contributing to major replayability. It makes it even better that unlike many sports games right now, F1 has few microtransactions, sure they exist but they’re 100% optional and usually just cosmetic easily beating out the **** shows such as Madden Ultimate Team, 2K park and myteam, etc Expand

I have no idea how or why this has such good ratings, since people seem to compare it to F1 2017, a way better game with no **** like this one. Not only that, but they somehow managed to make it take 50GB of your storage AND it just crashes whenever it feels like it. I tried to make a setup for my controller were I changed just two buttons, and it crashed, Absolutely degusting. Just another Cash grab Expand

Online experience is probably good if your in a league, random servers not so much.

    But the car handles very arcady and if you are used to and enjoy proper racing sims you will be dissapointed.

    This is a simcade more on the arcady side.

    I don't enjoy this game and they still don't offer VR which sucks.

    F1 should seriously consider another studio to make F1 games in the future, because this is starting to become a bigger joke than FIFA is...
