Ive played F1 2010, 2011 & 2012 and ive found them brilliant all-round, the handling was great, the tyres were great until a few laps towards the end (due to wear) never ran out of fuel (apart from rich mix) which always warned you vocally, which I would only use in qualifying.
But F1 2013 is totally different, gone is the grip when you use new tyres because you are now sliding all over the place & once they are gone its like driving on ice, a vocal warning comes on "try to manage your tyres" even if you slow down youre still sliding.
I can understand with all the new reg changes in the real F1 where Pirelli were told to make the tyres wear quicker to make F1 more exiting, but codemasters have took it too literally.
To top it all off you will always run out of fuel on the last lap even if you are on "normal fuel" or "fuel saving" modes.
The classic mode aint too bad, even though theres no Senna & Mclaren, also the drivers are a little mixed up as one of the above posters stated, the graphics have been improved but all the after-race cutscenes have been kept & not updated (which is a shame) & Murray Walker was a nice touch.
TBH, I wished Id never have used the "Classic Edition" code which came with my "Classic Edition" as I could have traded it in for another game or my kids could have used the trade in price to buy themselves a game.
A waste of the £45 I spent on the pre-order, which I could have used for something else, this along with GRID 2 will be collecting dust on my shelf, Sorry Codemasters.
