This review is from: F1 2011 (PS Vita) (Video Game)
I'm still trying to find a reason why this game was actually released for PS Vita. And I'm still trying to understand what makes it different from F1 2009, released for the PSP. The reason why I'm so frustrated? Controls, gameplay and again controls. Hey, we have 2012, right? The PS Vita now has three-axis gyroscope and a three-axis accelerometer, right? Do they know about it at Codemasters at all? Wouldn't it make sense to implement this into their game to make the steering just a little bit more precise? Are they serious the only way to control the car is by using the JOYSTICK? Again, we have 2012, right? I really thought controlling a racing game using a joystick is a thing of the past and that's why I was hoping the PS Vita will change this. Now I'm thinking - is this game actually any different from Mario Kart at all? If the only aim was to have an F1 racer on the new PS Vita, okay, so there we have it. I mean, I didn't expect a racing sim on a portable device, but the Vita can deliver just so much more than this. I'd say that even the smartphones have considerably better racing titles available. Really a shame... and as a matter of a fact, we still don't have any serious racing title for the PS Vita. Let's hope this will change rather soon.

my zune can turn its racing game using gyrometer so sounds like they have been a bit lazy

Sounds like you're talking out of your backside. Everyone else has rated it highly and yet you say there are better games on smartphones? are you having a laugh? it shows your lack of intelligence if you think smartphone/iphone/ipad racers are better than this.
also you mention the gyroscope, so you really believe people are going to sit on the train or bus moving the vita about in their hands to steer? what are you smoking?
what a tw@t.
