    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.

Nowhere near the likes of rFactor2, iRacing and other full blown simulators, of course. And there is the occasional crash, and the EGO dumper thing appears, asking you if you'd like to submit a report to Codemasters. But they've actually taken our complaints, and did something interesting. The MyTeam mode is bloody brilliant. I hope they add more customization options for the car on next year's game. Expand

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

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.

    Terribly bugged game.
    - Walls sometimes literally PULL YOU when you stand in place and then when driving 5km/h into it, you ragdoll and break your wheels off.
    - Safetycar is comepletly bugged disaster. You get punished when someone overtakes you under it - comepletly gamebreaking.
    PS: You want to unlap yourself under safety car, as any other normal racing game let you? Not here, safety car in game is completly different than in actuall f1 :)
    - p2p connection in competetive game in 2020? What the hell
    - weather forecast most of the time has no connection with timing to actuall race. Forecast says rain in 45 minutes? Youll have a wall of water after 5.
    - Multiplayer games fail completly to start if one player failed to connect - p2p **** again, and its kinda often in public lobbies
    TLDR: Game is even more bugged than f1 2019 or 2018. My team is decent, better tyre working system than 2019, anything else is made even worse than the previous one.
    2/10, not recommending to any competetive racing. To casual single player? Maybe 5/10, but youll get bored fast without multi

    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...
