    The game engine is just getting a bit long in the tooth. In any case, with what’s shaping up to be one of the best Formula 1 seasons in years, there’s never been a better time to get into motorsports and the best place to start might just be F1 22.

    Although slightly saddened by the omission of a story mode this time around, it’s more than made up for by the new vehicle physics. The concern of “F1 Life” having any bearing on gameplay being quashed makes F1 22 another flying lap for Codemasters.

    F1 22 delights with new cars and a perfect Formula 1 atmosphere, but the driveability could use some fine-tuning.

    F1 22 isn’t an exceptional entry in the series, but Codemasters has once again refined its winning sim racing formula and implemented immersive features that every type of player can enjoy. Career Mode is extra exciting thanks to some clever AI tweaks, making F1 22 the closest fans can get to being in the cockpit without any of the mortal danger. Development of systems in between races also helps you feel some of the chaos and elation of real Formula 1 racing, with the stellar graphics and sound design delivering a palpable atmosphere that is augmented by the haptics of the DualSense in your palms.

    This is the best entry in the series gameplay-wise and fan of this competition will love it, but it also feels like a step back when it comes to content.

    If the core F1 racing experience is what you care about most, then you likely won’t be disappointed by this year’s latest instalment.

    Built on the foundations of several fantastic games, and those qualities remain – but you already own them. F1 22 simply doesn’t offer enough for a full-price purchase.

Exactly the same game as F1 2021 except with new cars and tracks. Welcome to EA Codemasters. When you get to the racing it's generally pretty good but so few improvements over last year. When will they put a radar in this game so we can see cars around us? Surely adding that would have involved a tenth of the effort that the truly awful F1 Life involved? Expand

    They are broken the game with every single update.

    Instead of fixing the ongoing problems of online, they add super cars, furniture.

    Instead of fixing ongoing bugs, problems they bring updates which create more bugs, problems and optimization issue.

    When game came out, at Baku circuit the game is run on slow fps by comparison on other tracks. Alright, its acceptable. But right **** now racing at Baku is impossible.

    Price? Don't even get into that subject. This is the last F1 game that i bought. Great job EA. You destroyed everyting that good in two years for F1 fans.

Routes and environments taken over 1:1 from last year, including NPCs or extras who are on the routes. There are also no new radio messages, everything like 2021!

    F1 Life is as useless as a pimple on your elbow. These resources should have been used differently. Why are there no Classic F1 Cars? Why no F3? Why not a way to create a promotion from an F3 class to F2 and eventually to F1 (without story mode but maybe as a campaign?) ? Why are there no alternatives to classic routes?

    The added value of this game is unfortunately limited to the F1 cars, unfortunately. With EA (I don't know if this is a reason) in the wrong direction. This game is a step backwards.

    Do Not Buy!

    This is another copy and paste of the game they have been releasing for the last 3-5 years. They spend a lot of effort giving the game to youtubers to drum up hype and get kids to buy it.

    Do not let your children play or purchase this. It's filled with microtransactions for cosmetic items with the aim to get them to spend.

    The real kicker is the audacity of the creative director moaning last year on twitter that the 2021 game didn't win an award at a gameshow. That entitled mentality for expecting praise after pumping out the same old rubbish sums up this release from EA/Codemasters well.

    The audio team cry about wanting only "constructive criticism" AKA nothing negative to be said on the official forums when challenged on why the game sounds like it was made by a deaf man. Year after year they're told what people want and fail to deliver authentic or real sounds that amateur people can do a better job of in the likes of Assetto Corsa.

    Getting straight to the point…

    - Audio is wrong. Over 10 years of making the game and they do not get the onboard engine sounds to match the tv broadcast audio. (all sorts of made up excuses for this)
    - Incorrect tracks. They fixed a few and used it as a selling feature but it is the bare minimum to have tracks that are reflective of real life. (Spa still 10 years old)
    - Over saturated cartoony graphics. Looks like its made for previous gen and not current or "next gen".
    - Same rubbish "engineer" lines. They changed the voiceover but got it to repeat the same lines.
    - No official HUD from TV in an official game is laughable.
    - Timing system broken (ever since F1 2010). F1 games from other developers from 16 years ago allowed you to compare lap times to fastest in session or pole yet in this game you can only ever see your sector times against your own lap time.

    This really is scraping the barrel. Zero passion for the developer and that was before EA got involved.

    This year they decided to add "Super cars" and buying clothes and furniture also known as "F1 Life" to the game which is crazy considering all of the above that isnt fixed.

    They also specifically designed the game to exploit children and those who are mentally vulnerable by selling cosmetic items like clothes, hats, glasses and couches (you read that right, home furniture in an F1 game).

    I can only hope F1 and FOM see this for what it is and get rid of this rubbish developer and team. Mather/Jeal and all the others should be confined to the scrap heap of history as failures.

    Pathetic game and a well deserved: 0/10
