    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.

    All in all I have to say once I got out my gamepad this game became a blast to play. Codemasters did one hell of a job giving a sense of speed and realism when playing this game. Now I will say this is also a review coming from someone that has not played the previous installments so some of the things I mention may be carried over from previous titles. So this review was from someone going in blind so take that for how you will.

    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.

    An exceptionally good update to Codemasters' increasingly polished and wide-reaching racing series.

    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 offers a fantastic experience for Formula 1 fanatics. The MYTEAM mode is anything but a tacked-on bullet point and will likely be the most popular way to enjoy the game offline. It encompasses the entire Formula 1 team experience, save for the political red tape, dubious origins of financial backing, and the countless euro-trash orgies the top drivers are certainly participating in after making podiums.

    F1 2020 feels daunting for first-timers, but it lets you learn and adapt as you continue to progress and challenge yourself. Barring a few downsides with its My Team and Driver Career modes, it remains a true marvel in the sim-racing genre where every competition is nail-bitingly fierce and exciting.

    F1 2020 is not just the best episode of the franchise, but one of the best simcade racing game of this generation. This year Codemasters brings all the emotions and frantic action of the top class of motorsport to the players, crafting an incredible experience both for newcomers and experienced drivers. The new team career is awesome, and overall, the game is solid and rich with content.

    With some great improvements on and off the track F1 2020 is an exceptional racer, and the one to beat this year.

    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.

    F1 2020 is simultaneously the deepest yet most accessible Codemasters Formula One experience to date. The heavy reliance on recycled vignettes and the same old faces we’ve been seeing for virtually an entire generation admittedly means F1 2020 doesn’t necessarily look as fresh as it feels but, between My Team and splitscreen, this is the most fun I’ve had with the F1 series for years.

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

    The deep career mode is even better when managing your own team, and the racing is superbly tactical.

    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.

    F1 2020 is another very good opus in the series, and this time, it allows the player to act as the owner of a team. It also marks the comeback of split-screen multiplayer. A must-have for racing fans.

    Thanks to the new "My Team" mode, F1 2020 refreshes the familiar gameplay of the series. This is the only important change in the game that still allows you to recommend the project to both fans and newcomers. For those who are bored with the gameplay, I recommend waiting for more fundamental changes. Fortunately, in the next two years, not only will the racing regulations change dramatically, but also the next-generation consoles will appear, which will entail a transformation of the visual component of the game and, perhaps, the physics of cars. In any case, F1 2020 is another great game for the official Royal racing championship, and that's great.

    F1 2020 manages to bring enough content with its new "My team" proposals which add yet another interesting layer to an already excellent base. We still regret the redundant side of the pre-race training programs (not enough variety), but it is ultimately the lot of Formula One that does not reinvent itself every day either. If you love F1 and want to enjoy it virtually, F1 2020 is the best and it is not because it is the only one.

    While it might not be the best racing simulation on the market, there is no other place to get the full experience of Formula 1 as one of the ten teams or as a fresh newcomer on the block. If this is the final game for the current generation of consoles, then this is a lovely way to end that cycle. If Codemasters keep this up going into next generation, then expect the series to only get better, because right now, F1 2020 is a worthwhile investment for F1 fans and fans of realistic style racing games.

    Content wise, the work done by Codemasters it’s brilliant, introducing a managerial mode on a solid racing game that will require great dedication to be exploited at his best.

    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.

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. Full Review »
