A great addition to F1 games,
This review is from: Formula 1 2010 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
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
