stay away from this game. or better... download it and test for yourself, before you'll trash it with disgust.… Expand

the whole game is about "run! run! shoot! shoot! get out of the city!" while the script stays there rotting till the last 20 minutes of the game. even though, it's damn full of wholes, just like Mass Effect 3 ending.
game industry, where the are you going??… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Mar 7, 2013I can't believe all these people stating that this game is amazing, funny, etc. I just think that these people never got a pad in their handsI can't believe all these people stating that this game is amazing, funny, etc. I just think that these people never got a pad in their hands in their lives except for playing CoD.
This game is one of those non-games, where everything is scripted and cinematic, where the story comes in front of the gameplay.
The problem is, the story is nowhere near as good.
It's a messy chaos of Lost quotes (the thinking island, airplanes falling, etc), teen movies (Lara is sometimes called L.C... WHAT??) and russian conspiracy. After several hours of playing I found more holes in the script than bugs in the game. We talk about an ancient japanese civlization from thousands of years ago. and yet, ALL THE WOODEN HOUSES ARE STILL INTACT AND THE BRACERS IN THE FORGOTTEN SECRET TOMBS ARE LIT.
I can forgive it as a gameplay license, but the gameplay is just absent.
I can let go of the "win button", a button that shows you exactly what to do, the annoying neverending tutorial that follows you throughout the whole game or the lame experience system.
but I can't let go the complete absence of anything related to a "gameplay".
During the shooting you never die. Enemies never shoot at you, they always miss.
When jumping the only thing you have to do is pressing up and A. doesn't matter if you up the distances, the game fixes that for you.
This is a game made to be won, and I can accept that if they would have presented a great story.
But they didn't.
And playing it is just plain boring.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.9Sep 21, 2012There are so many things that people were expecting out of this new edition of the game.
A complete career with pilots market, improvedThere are so many things that people were expecting out of this new edition of the game.
A complete career with pilots market, improved collisions, wheel-to-wheel realistic physics, a better replay engine, a more complete engineer radio messages (like for example updating you on what happens around you in the race, if somebody crashes, etc), more car failures, a proper online championship (maybe like fifa?), classic cars and tracks, scenarios from the live season, and much more.
Codemasters chose instead to redesign a new MENU. I mean, I think it's really neat and everything, and now the game loads really fast, but was it really the priority number one??
Apart from this, we have a new suspension system that works better, we have a better tyre sim, and the AI is finally aggressive enough to feel alive. (if you're fast enough... if you're just 3-4 seconds slower than the car behind you, you'll just see trails of cars behind you as usual.), better graphics, dynamic weather, a scenario mode and an arcade career.
And driving is just completely fun.
I totally, completely enjoy speeding my car flying over the kerbs, driving from the **** view with no aids at all and battling against the other cars... it's just so rewarding.
So Codemasters has improved the game once more, even though it still feels like they could have done much better than that.
You play it. It's damn fun. DAAMN FUN.
But it's still not... that... complete experience you would expect from a masterpiece. They are just this far from the best F1 game ever made, yet they still lose focus on what they should really do.
I'm thinking right now to the rivalry between FIFA and PES that has occurred since the 90's, bringing both companies to improve their games wildly year after year, in a healthy competition that brought us today two of the most complete football simulations. Maybe what F1 lacks today is just the same rough competition.
But I doubt that good ol' Bernie (Ecclestone) will ever grant it to us.… Expand
