Perhaps the most anticipated area of f1 2013 is the classic mode, although i must warn you that the full classic mode is ONLY included with the full classic edition of the game which was available as a pre-order only. So if you purchase this version (only version available now) it will only come with 1980's content, if you want the full classic content then you can purchase it separately as a DLC.Read more ›
Right, now that's out of the way...
F1 2013 is pretty much what you'd expect (if you've played F1 2012)- an evolution over last year's game instead of a wholesale change. The handling is very much the same for the 2013 cars- just a continuation of what worked well last year- and I will say now that if you are new to F1 games, you will find it difficult to start with.
The same game modes are all there- Multiplayer (exactly the same as 2012), Co-Op Championship, Time Trial and Grand Prix mode is back! So you can create a custom season instead of just a single race (as in 2012). Champions Mode has evolved into Scenario Mode- exactly the same principal only there's a lot more challenges- yes, some are quite fun but once you've completed them, you won't bother doing them again.
All the same modes apply in F1 Classics, which is this year's game's big new feature because without it, this is just F1 2012 with a new paint job. It is truly magnificent though! 5 cars from the 1980s from Williams, Ferrari and Lotus and 12 from the 90s (if you have the Classic Edition or extra DLC). 3 from Williams, 3 from Ferrari,including Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill's title-winning cars. In addition, each car has a unique sound, handling and is meticulously recreated. There's also plenty of top drivers although the combinations are a bit odd. For some reason, Jody Scheckter is in a 1999 Ferrari (?). Alain Prost is also in a 1999 Williams and David Coulthard in a 92' Williams.Read more ›
The F1 2013 (xbox360) is a lot more fun with the addition of the classic cars . The classic cars slide around a lot more than the modern cars which makes it a lot more realistic to play. The graphics are same as 2012 but this is expected as must be hard making changes to a game based on real life motor sport. Don't get me wrong its still a fun game to play especially if your like me and follow F1.
The main reason I have just bought F1 2013 is because it has a unique extra feature, which is the inclusion of five 1980 F1 cars (two normally aspirated car and three turbo cars), and two extra tracks for them to run on (Brands Hatch and Jerez). The 1980 cars can also be run on the current tracks, and the 2013 cars can be run on the extra 1980 tracks (the 1980 cars and 2013 cars can't be raced together). Also, as I have an Xbox 360, so I can't buy F1 2015 as the only Xbox version is for the Xbox One.
I read all the Amazon reviews for F1 2013 before I bought it, and most of them were very positive. I already have F1 2010 (bought in 2010) which I think is superb. I also bought F1 2011 (back in 2011), but was very disappointed with it as it was severely dumbed-down compared with the original from 2010 (F1 2011 allows too much corner cutting and has a lot more chassis roll in corners, which seems to be impossible to fully control). The reason I bought F1 2011 back then was because it had some extra tracks, and because 2011 was the first year for DRS ("drag reduction system" which gives the ability to reduce the upper rear wing angle on the straights), and KERS ("kinetic energy recovery system" which recovers energy from rear wheel braking). Both systems are still used on F1 cars.
Regarding my current purchase of F1 2013, I have been "driving" a 1980 Williams FW07 with a normally aspirated engine, a Cosworth DFV. The torque spread from the DFV compared with modern F1 cars is phenomenal.Read more ›
