    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. There is a lot of bug in game. Two years of development for this final product... if you are a fanatic buy it. But, casual gammer you wouldn't buy this game. The F2 season is a joke. And The Leyend Edition is also a joke Expand

    Solid foundations, but even as of early June 2020, the game is still somewhat buggy and Hamilton is still a ruthless **** magically immune to damage from contact he loves to initiate. The game could also do with *way* more variety in writing. Within one season, I've heard the exact same commentary and the reporter's questions countless times. Rain during practice?

The game could also do with *way* more variety in writing. Within one season, I've heard the exact same commentary and the reporter's questions countless times. Rain during practice? Prepare for the same line about the data gathered being useless. The reporter's questions also often don't reflect reality. For instance, if you finish after having lapped the second place (yes, I play on lower difficulty settings), the reporter will likely still ask for your comment on the *close* finish/battle between you and the runner-up. The F2 mode is also rather underutilized, especially in the career mode, in which it's relegated to the role of a bizarre half-tutorial half-montage. Finally, considering how many legacy cars there are in the game, I expected them to be used for more than a few minutes' optional event after every other GP in the career. Ideally, I would've loved full-blown historic GPs making proper use of F1's storied past, visiting tracks not on this season's calendar or perhaps past variants of current tracks. What we get instead is a jaw-dropping number of cosmetic microtransactions. Expand

    Overall experience: disappointing.

    The game is beautiful and challenging, makes driving very fun. Good experience without assists. Multiplayer is a nightmare: dirty driving is encouraged, as penalties are extremely unfair for fair players. 70% of your races end when other car intentionally touches you or crashes with you (in the "safest" lobby), and then you get an unfair and

    Multiplayer is a nightmare: dirty driving is encouraged, as penalties are extremely unfair for fair players. 70% of your races end when other car intentionally touches you or crashes with you (in the "safest" lobby), and then you get an unfair and ridiculous penalty that gets you into an even dirtier lobby. In addition to this, matchmaking makes hardly possible to improve your rank, as you are paired with master rank players that are impossible to race against.

    I’ve never been a racing fan, but I’ve always had the impression that it’s a couple of steps above the likes of NASCAR and Indy car racing. That’s an impression borne out by F1 2019, and it means that anyone who wants a real racing game challenge would be well-advised to check it out.

    Simply the best-ever reproduction of this high-speed, high-tech motorsport. It’s very familiar, but nonetheless noticeably superior to the 2018 game. Essential. [Issue#165, p.85]

    Codemasters shows something new in F1 2019. Especially offering Formula 2, transfers of drivers and an accessible multiplayermode really takes F1 to the next level.
