Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

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 F1 2010! 30 Sep 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay I've now had over a week to get used to this game and I can say that although it's difficult it's well worth a punt. The graphics are top notch and the F1 tracks superb in detail. Be warned though if you don't practice and qualify and set the car up your going to fail and fail miserably.

Patience is the key here but if your expecting something like Forza3 forget it. This is brutal and if you make an error or take your eye off the screen for a split second when racing your in the gravel pit. You need 120% concentration.

This is a game for F1 fans or serious racing gamers, maybe too serious!

Quick update to the above. I've now had the game a couple of weeks and it's one of those games that keep's dragging you back. I played it all day last Sunday and was determined to get a win, eventually I got two, back to back but haven't won again since! With the wins and the concentration came a muzzy headache.

You have to play this properly. Do the practices, get the upgrades and then qualify then race oh and set the car up for the right conditions. However, even when you do the lot it's no guarantee of success. After eight tracks I'm 5th in the driver Championship with Williams F1.

One slight lack of concentration and your off the track. Pit at the wrong time and your pole position can go to waste (if you manage to achieve one) and you watch as you drop to 17th or even worse. Other cars can 'mirage' through your car when you enter the pit lane.

That said it's challenging and really enjoyable and the graphics are superb.

Update:

It's now a few weeks after buying the game and I can say I've finally cracked it. First five races yesterday (yes I have no life) I won them all except Monaco, which is awful. Great game, great detail, the interviews are annoying as are post race interviews but overall it's very enjoyable!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to F1 games 16 Mar 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Alright before i bought this i looked at the review and found that a few people had been slating it off. However when I bought it i found out that none of these faults were true. My save data is still there and for people who'spit stops took 20 seconds go and return it for a new one and try again. (My longest stop has been around 5 seconds, also the current rules require you to wait!). I'm new and took on team Lotus because I have a friend who works there. I put it on easy and found that i could put a car that was in real life around the back at the back of the grid on pole!! Needles to say I didn't win the race due to the car spinning and costing me time. Yes you can spin much more easily now than in previous games, it's annoying but fun as you never know when you might suddenly loose the back end. Anyway thought I would turn up the difficulty as I'm in a Lotus and winning the drivers championship and constructors (by myself, my team mate has no points) so up to medium i go and i find that it is slightly more difficult and it removes part of the racing line and only shows it in the corners.
The graphics are amazing and i mean it. The detail is amazing and in the rain you can sometimes hardly see a thing due to the rain on the tv screen. (In the wet be very careful when driving). The animations are totaly realistic, for when you win you raise your hands in triumph. It would be nice to go on the podium but the after race interviews are interesting.
The main thing I'm yet to see is the damage that can be done to the car. I mean i'm yet to turn it up past medium at the moment but i spun around and Hamilton hit me, now i'd have expected to have lost my front wing but Lewis loses his then pits and then i take his position as i carry on driving. I later found you can turn it off so you do get damage and the aniamtions for that are fantastic. Sometimes i'd crash just to see the replay!
Fantastic game 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 25 Sep 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
as a huge fan of F1 i have been waiting for this game to come out for months now and after having playing for a few hours already, it is an amazing game. the details of the scenery, cars and even the sounds of the engines are all great.
i also love the fact you have to start off at a lower team to build up a good career, very good part of the game as it makes you a better driver as you move up the ladder.

5.0 out of 5 stars The F1 Game We've Been Waiting For 24 Sep 2010
By Ash150
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the F1 game the fans have been waiting for. Fully developed, thought out and offers the best F1 experience for many years. Fantastic game. Even with the steering wheel, this game is immense and controls beautifully. The AI are smart and try to avoid contact, the tracks are well done and 100 accurate, the rain is incredible, the career mode great and the graphics stunning.

If you're a fan of F1, this is a must!

Only cons i can think of after one day play is;
- Frame Rate issues when driving past the pit straight in quali (seems to slow down temporarily when all 24 cars on the same screen) - hopefully a few patches will fix this anyway
- No Safety Car
- No Jumpstarts
- Media side of game could do with more answers/development in future versions
- Damage Model is very basic; you always lose wheels and wings. thats it.
- Bugs and Glitches are really apparent at the moment (Pit Lane Release - Some Drivers Not Pitting, etc)
- There's a forum post if you search google for all the bugs in the game

Great Things about this game
+ Accurate tracks
+ Graphics
+ Works well with the Xbox wheel
+ Best AI
+ Weather system is incredible
+ Choice of career mode
+ Can custom choose your difficulty (If you want Arcade or Sim) by turning off TC, Abs, Pit Lane Limiter, Damage, AI Difficulty, Manual braking into pit box
+ Full Practice, Quali and Race settings with FULL rules

The Game does have some noticable bugs at the moment, but CODEMASTERS have already confirmed a PATCH to fix the main issues with the game which to be honest, can't come soon enough.
