This review is from: F1 2011 Playstation3 Game Codemasters
Pros: Incorporates the latest rules from F1; all drivers and liveries from 2011 season included; update includes new tracks from 2011 season.
Cons: takes time to master the intricacies of the game; many factors to incorporate during a race; AI cars are formidable opponents.
Other Thoughts: This is NOT an arcade-style game, but much more of a simulation. If you want a game to goof around and race your friends for fun, there are other games that would be better choices. If, however, you would like to get a taste of what it takes to drive an F1 car on a very accurate digital F1 track, this game is perfect. The cars do each handle differently, and this game takes some time and effort to master the handling, braking, DRS, KERS, etc. A lot of effort was put in to recreate the physics of a Formula 1 race. There are a lot of factors that must be simultaneously considered when racing, and the computer controlled cars are very good. A key to beginning to learn the game is using downshifting to slow the car (rather than only the brakes). Memorizing the track can help in anticipating the turns and greatly improving your times. If you are a true F1 fan, you will really enjoy this game.
