Great game, but....,
This review is from: F1 2012 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
First of all it's a fantastic game. I'm totally addicted to it. Once you get used to the handling and start matching the Legend pace you can have some truly epic and realistic races. Even did a 100% race at Korea last night, the whole race took nearly 2 hours, it was brilliant. The weather is pretty impressive, but a bit challenging in changing conditions. Nothing that can't be mastered though. Online annoys most people, but I personally enjoy the sprint races, messy and sometimes you get rammed, but it's some intense fun.
I pre-ordered and paid full price for the game. Within days a huge list of bugs appeared on Codemaster forums, and PC patches started getting released. We're now at patch 12 I think, but console users have to wait ages for patches. Once it finally became available, many of the bugs were sorted, so I restarted career again the other day and everything is great. But now the game is only £23, so I feel like I've paid an extra £10-£15 to be a Codemasters tester. Next year I'll wait for the patches before buying, lesson learned.
