5.0 out of 5 stars Best racer EVER!!!!!!, 23 Sep 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: F1 2011 (PS3) (Video Game)
I was a little sceptical to begin with that 2011 would really be tat much of an improvement or different to the 2010 game which was so good in itself. However since playing the new one, Ive been really impressed with what they've done!

For a start, the handling of the cars is so much more realistic (I assume, since ive never driven an F1 car before!). In 2010, it was very easy to master the control of the car, even with no assists, and in was way too predictible. Now you have to be pretty cautious, especially if your tyres are brand new or starting to wear.

The introdution of KERS an DRS iw brilliant. You really notice the effect you get when in the slip stream of another car.

Some people have complained about the quality of the graphics and the fact the game doesnt run smoothly, but frankly I have no idea what they are talking about! OK, the people in the garage are a little rough around the edges much like 2010, but the graphics overall are stunning and Ive certainly experienced no glitches or poor running at all.

There are still improvements to be made. The wierd looking women interviewing you post race is gone THANK GOD but the experience the life part of the game had so much potential that hasnt been exploited, and the questions you get asked are still the same, sometimes irrelevant things. Personally though, I bought this gae to race, not to answer questions so it really isnt a big issue with me at all.

The difficulty settings are still a little strange. You can turn off all assists and have the difficulty on proffesional and consistantly win in a williams, but if you go up to legendary, Youll be 2 seconds slower than anyone else!! Some tweaks to this would be a massive improvement!

The online aspect is so much better now, with no massive wait for matchmaking and the introduction of coop season which is pure genius! They have also added 2 player split screen which seems to be strangely rare these days and a welcome addition!

Overall the game is far superior to the 2010 one. You really feel like you are driving an F1 car, and not playing an arcade game. With a few adjustments to difficulty and experience the life aspects, the game would have been utterly untouchable!!
