Manufacturer's Description

For the first time in almost a decade a new Formula 1 game is appearing on all the home consoles and PC, as Codemasters gets ready to make their mark on the sport. Using the same graphics technology as Colin McRae: DiRT 2 and Race Driver: GRID, this is set to be the best F1 game ever.

Formula 1 returns to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC
The stunning graphics use Codemasters' Ego engine from Colin McRae: DiRT 2
All the official F1 tracks are replicated in exacting detail
These screens show the 2009 cars but the final game will be based on the 2010 season

With everything from the affect of rain on the track to media interest in your performance simulated, everything that happens in a real Formula 1 season happens in this game. But don't worry if you're not an expert racer as the game has a specially designed range of driving aids and arcade options to ensure every kind of gamer can join in the fun.

However you play the game though, whether it's in a seven season career marathon or a quick run around the Monaco circuit, this puts Forumla 1 back at the pinnacle of video game racing.

Key Features
  • F1 for All: No longer a PlayStation exclusive, Formula 1 returns for all formats as Codemasters unleash their most feature-packed race sim ever.
  • Play the Field: Play a full career mode of 3, 5 or 7 seasons, with specific goals for each of the different teams - from Ferrari to Lotus.
  • Gripping Weather: The most realistic weather system ever seen in a racing game, with rain falling and drying realistically and drastically affecting the performance of the cars.
  • Simulation Racing: Every aspect of Formula 1 is replicated in exacting detail, but less experienced racers can still choose to play in a less serious arcade style mode.
  • Research & Development: You're not the only one working through the season, as your team constantly comes up with new car upgrades that improve your car from race to race.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any sim-racing fan 28 Sep 2010
By Touring Mars VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
F1 2010 is a worthy successor to the last Playstation F1 game, F1:CE, and Codemasters have done an excellent job in breathing new life into a fairly tired old concept. The game is genuinely challenging for those who seek a full-on simulation of F1 racing, but it is also accessible to the novice or intermediate player, since a range of options allow you to tailor the game to your preferred level of difficulty. F1 2010 offers a new perspective on the career mode, whilst staying true to the fundamentals required of any new F1 game... a full complement of new cars, new drivers and new circuits, and an exhilarating sense of speed behind the wheel...

While the game currently has several weird and annoying bugs, there are patches on the way that seek to remedy them, but even without the patches, I can't say my enjoyment of the game has been spoiled much by the bugs, and there are some workarounds available which you can find by simply scouring relevant internet forums. For a game of this size and complexity, there was always going to be some aspects that are less than perfect, but they must be weighed against the good things in the game... and on that front, F1 2010 really does not disappoint. Graphically, it is the best console F1 game by far, and in terms of sheer playing pleasure, it doesn't get much better for a driving game.

*** For people who own both Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles ***

I bought this game on the PS3, but I have also played it on my Xbox 360, and graphically there is a real difference in the two versions. The Xbox 360 version looks alot sharper and smoother, and it almost had me taking my PS3 version back and swapping it for the Xbox version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good and addictive but flawed 25 Nov 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I won't repeat the plethora of comments already posted and post-patch - this game is improved but still feels a bit like it was rushed out and has not been completed finished. Hopefully F1 2011 will be better...

Issues I've found:

1. Exiting the pits is far better but some cars still do not appear to pit.
2. Not enough accidents in the race effecting other cars, particularly when in wet conditions.
3. When chasing certain cars, you can keep putting in fastest laps, but when you get about 5 seconds behind, you
have no chance of catching them.
4. Varying levels of performance at certain tracks - no matter how hard you try, you can be miles off your team
mate at some tracks.
5. Not being offered a contract with your team at the end of the season, even if you've won the title. Like that
would happen!
6. No celebration etc when you win a race - or if you've won the Championship. This is quite poor. You get no
sense of achievement.
7. AI cars tyre's do not seem to degrade like yours do. They seem to be constantly fast, when you're struggling.
8. You can't see a 'season overview' - where you won, your fastest laps etc. Would be good if you could compare each seasons statistics and achievements etc.

Overall, I still cannot stop playing this game! There are still some problems and annoying issues, but this game is still highly addictive and I would recommend to anyone. Hopefully Codemasters will bring out an even better game for next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Formula Won! 24 Sep 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There is a certain element of excitement one feels, as a fan of formula 1, when the formation lap is over, and those cars are all sat neatly in there positions, as the red lights start to light up, the deafening, yet beautiful sound of those engines revving up in anticipation of those lights finally going out, watching in awe as these magnificent machines squeeze their way through turn one, on the odd occasion marvelling at how the drivers manged to get through that first corner without so much as a nudge.

Transferring that feeling to a game is not the easiest task, and the guys at codemasters have certainly given it a pretty great first crack of the whip. Throughout production, they have stressed that this game was not designed to be a hardcore Sim, with years of practice needed just to start enjoying the experience, nor was it designed to be an arcade game that a bunch of kids would play just to see how many crashes they can cause in one lap.

I now can fully appreciate what they were trying to achieve, and for the most part, they have succeeded. I got the game yesterday, and managed to to find time last night to do a few time trials and then start my career.

The game starts with a press interview which is designed so you can choose your career details, such as your name and difficulty in a slightly more inventive way. Now I started with Virgin Racing as my team, as depending on what difficulty you choose during your setup will determine how many teams are willing to sign you up. The harder the fewer basically. After having a brief chat with the strange looking lady acting as my career agent, I hit the track at Bahrain.
