4.0 out of 5 stars F1 2010!, 30 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Formula 1 2010 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Okay I've now had over a week to get used to this game and I can say that although it's difficult it's well worth a punt. The graphics are top notch and the F1 tracks superb in detail. Be warned though if you don't practice and qualify and set the car up your going to fail and fail miserably.

Patience is the key here but if your expecting something like Forza3 forget it. This is brutal and if you make an error or take your eye off the screen for a split second when racing your in the gravel pit. You need 120% concentration.

This is a game for F1 fans or serious racing gamers, maybe too serious!

Quick update to the above. I've now had the game a couple of weeks and it's one of those games that keep's dragging you back. I played it all day last Sunday and was determined to get a win, eventually I got two, back to back but haven't won again since! With the wins and the concentration came a muzzy headache.

You have to play this properly. Do the practices, get the upgrades and then qualify then race oh and set the car up for the right conditions. However, even when you do the lot it's no guarantee of success. After eight tracks I'm 5th in the driver Championship with Williams F1.

One slight lack of concentration and your off the track. Pit at the wrong time and your pole position can go to waste (if you manage to achieve one) and you watch as you drop to 17th or even worse. Other cars can 'mirage' through your car when you enter the pit lane.

That said it's challenging and really enjoyable and the graphics are superb.

Update:

It's now a few weeks after buying the game and I can say I've finally cracked it. First five races yesterday (yes I have no life) I won them all except Monaco, which is awful. Great game, great detail, the interviews are annoying as are post race interviews but overall it's very enjoyable!

Well what do you expect, the williams is like the 6th quickest car, you are doing well being in the top 10, never mind be 5th, pick a ferrari or red bull, then see if you aren't 1st

Hi train,

Thanks for your comment. I've cracked it now and leading the Championship on my third attempt. I won it second time around as well. It's a fantastic game and I keep going back to it unlike recent releases like MoH and COD BO!

You might want to add that it's perfectly fine on Amateur level if you're not into all that setup and practice stuff... I just jumped straight in first time round on the easiest difficulty and won by 20 seconds on most tracks... that was with a Lotus.
