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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth persevering and it will reward 28 Sep 2010
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a game that I have been waiting for for along time.
Keeping an eye on it from the start, watching the development
diaries and previews.

I am a big driving game nut who enjoys a challenge and Ive
really enjoyed racing sims, Rfactor, GT Legends and GTR Evo on
the PC along with your usual console racers.

I bought the PC version of F1 2010 due to having a decent
graphics card and setup with a Logitech FX wheel and pedals
You really do need a wheel for any driving sim its adds so
much more immersion.

The other advantage with buying the PC version is that the
graphics can be tweaked as much as you want and that the likely
hood of mods being made available for it as time goes by
polishing the look of the game even more.

The only downside is that the game, as other comments and
reviews have made, feels unfinished and a patch would make a
huge difference. The list of bugs and issues are listed in
nearly every review so I wont list them.

The first time I played the game I found it really frustrating
and difficult and didn't really enjoy it. After having a look on
various forums and sites I discovered that its worth while
tweaking the controls for the wheel and the difficulty settings
to suit. I liked the settings set at hard so the fantastic AI
would be a challenge but the car would handle as I wanted.

After I had done this and a couple of laps into the game the
game started to open up and became more enjoyable as I had a
better feel for the car and the tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded all expectations 27 Sep 2010
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My system spec.
AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core 2.3 ghz
ATi Radeon HD4870 1GB
3GB DDR2 Ram
23" Samsung Syncmaster 2333HD Monitor
Thrustmaster Ferrari GT Experience Wheel

With my system spec I am able to run the game with 1920x1080 resolution, 4x MSAA and all other display settings on high. With these settings I haven't experienced any noticeable frame-rate drops or lagging at all. My experiences so far have been primarily within the career mode (expert difficulty, 50% races).

Having played rFactor and F1 Challenge 99-02 in the past, F1 2010 was always a must-buy and it is easily the best racing game I have ever played.

These are just some of the positive aspects of the game, and it certainly isn't an exhaustive list.
- The graphics are fantastic at the above resolution and the visual experience enhanced during wet races in particular.
- The handling is challenging enough to be rewarding when you post a fast time or string a series of laps together during a race.
- On expert difficulty the AI is genuinely difficult to beat, to the extent where finishing 18th in a Lotus can sometimes feel like a victory.
- The small details, such as the ability to adjust wing angles and engine settings during the race makes the game seem that bit more realistic.
- The career mode, whilst not perfect, seems to give the game longevity offline. The possibility to rise through the ranks from a team such as Lotus to one capable of challenging for and winning world championships is exciting, particularly when any respectable result in a lower team seems like such an achievement early on.
- The game is more immersive than any other racing game I've played.

2.0 out of 5 stars F1 2011 XBOX Versus F1 2010 PC 3 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This review is not a direct comparison of either game its merely an opinion of my own experience.

AFter having bought F1 2011 for the xbox 360 and completed it, I enjoyed it so much I bought F1 2010 for PC at a bargain price from ActivateGR just to compare the titles. As a PC & Console gamer I really have no preference when it comes to which platform I use.

At first I could not really make my mind up which version I liked best , both look really good and as a F1 fan I cant fault either game on Graphics, after a few days playing F1 2010 it became apparent that there was only ever going to be one winner for playability and overall fun factor and that was F1 2011 on xbox , with absolutely no issues whatsoever on the xbox the game overall is outstanding and I give it top marks in every department.

F1 2010 on PC on the otherhand is miles apart in both playability and the fun factor quickly diminished within a few hours of play, I have absolutely no idea how this game could ever have won a bafta award, to say the least its contrived gameplay is probably the most annoying factor about the game and if you are unfortunate enough to own this game then you will know exactly what I mean when I say that.
