The physics of this game is awful, it doesn't even come close to simulating a F1 car. Nobody should buy this game expecting it to be a simulator but it should at least have a little resemblance. The cars steer like trucks compared to F1 simulators. Very heavy steering, there's a lot of lag in the steering and it's particularly poor through mid-corners. The cars cornering is entirely determined by the entry, the game doesn't allow you to make those minuscule steering corrections through mid-corner.

AI is very poor in wheel to wheel racing, defending against them is so easy because they back off so easily. Even along very fast straights they'll hammer down the brakes and drop way back instead of just lifting off momentarily to avoid a collision. The AI laptimes don't adjust well to tyre and fuel levels either.

Tyre simulation is also appalling. The tyres in this game degrade in a manner such that the car behaves as if it's on ice once they reach the specified laps (usually 10-11 laps on 30% race distance). In reality the tyres degrade so that the times are slower but they can go the entire race in terms of durability. Very disappointing from Codemasters in this respect.

DRS is a shambles because in real life cars can open DRS through curved straights and even very early on the exit of corners. However in this game the DRS can only be opened when the car is straight. Any steering input destabilises/spins the car massively.

Penalty system is a joke. If another car crashes into you, don't be surprised to get a penalty because apparently YOU caused the collision. You also get warnings/penalties for taking certain chicanes that drivers always do in real life but it's not allowed in the game.

I agree that this game's visuals aren't stellar but I think that is the least of its faults.

The physics are fantastic and the attention to detail with the setups comes close to rivalling Gran Turismo though there are a few bugs in the setup. Driving the cars is a lot of fun and longer races really do make you think about tyre strategy. The inclusion of KERS and DRS is brilliant.

The co-op mode is a great idea on paper but in practice, you can clearly tell it wasn't tested fully as you can lap significantly faster than the computer-controlled drivers - even with a novice team mate, the racing will probably be between you and your human team mate rather than between all 24 drivers.

My biggest annoyance with the game is the atrocious AI. It's not Gran Turismo bad where the opposition makes no attempt to go around you to overtake but unceremoniously rams you out of the way instead but when you are lapping an opponent in a race, they start to move off the racing line but when you've committed to taking the racing line and a corner or braking point, they drive back into it and you lose a wing, puncture a tyre or worse yet, get a penalty. If you're qualifying and they exit the pits, they have no regard for you being on the qualifying lap and if they hinder your lap, they don't get penalised for it. Likewise if they brake test you, they don't get penalised either. I've only noticed the opposition being penalised once. Frankly I think the computer-controlled opposition is less prone to being penalised simply to make up for the poor AI.

Despite my criticism of the AI, this game can be quite rewarding to play but more serious gamers will be frustrated. Though it's unlikely to happen, a patch to fix the abysmal AI or penalise them more readily would make a massive difference to my enjoyment of the game.

This game gives you everything thats great about the F1 2011 season.
You've got the new tracks (Nurburgring GP and India), DRS and KERS, better handling and better AI (unfortunatley Sebastian Vettel is almost as good as in real life in my career game too!).

There are a few slight issues, such as the frame rate isn't perfect, and there appears to be a setup bug (having max spring settings gives too much grip), but these small issues shouldn't spoil your fun playing this game. I've rated the game 5 stars, as I believe a patch will be out soon to resolve most of the issues, and the issues are minor.

I've now raced up to Silverstone (9 races) in career at expert difficulty using a G27 steering wheel. I've also played online quite a bit, but have yet to try the coop multiplay options.

I find this game so much more fun and engaging than GT5 for example. it can be frustrating, but aren't most things that challenge you. It can also be very rewarding.
Its not really a sim, but its not an arcade game either, and there are enough options to help make the difficulty suit the driver.

Its the sheer pace and challenge of driving a F1 car that makes this game great. And with DRS and KERS you have tools to attack and defend that work really well. Handling is so much more repsonsive, you can catch the car when it starts to slide (if you're quick), but watch out for the tyre degredation, thats also well developed (and you can see the marbles on the track as the race progresses).
I could write much more, but I've said enough... if you thinking about buying this, just go for it, its GREAT!
