Conclusion: I have F1 2010 and just got F1 2011 from somewhere cheaper. The gameplay is a lot smoother than before. The updates are KERRS, DRS, Drivers and Track. This is a must for all F1 fans and you wont be disappointed. Only downside to the game is like with the previous F1 2010, it takes a while loading up at beginning and for races.
Conclusion: I recently purchased this game (May 2012) for a tenner and at that price you can't go wrong. Some people seem to be put off by slow loading times, but i think that may be down to the impatience of youth or a lower end PC lol. If you are used to xbox live and signing in to a profile then Windows for games should come as no shock to you. Infact it is very handy to stay in contact with your xbox friends whilst enjoying playing your PC.
Conclusion: Agree graphics are great, time for loading is slow, but my biggest gripe is that I too find it impossible to control and keep on the track. So far, the best time I have managed is about 34 seconds behind the 23rd ranked car! I also have managed to receive 3 x 10 place penalties on the grid for blocking when I was spinning round and trying to get back on the track during practice. Will persist as looks as if it should be good.
Conclusion: The game is brilliant. Lots of improvement compare to f1 2010. Graphic is amazing, plus kers and DRS. Very playable. On maximum graphic settings on core i7 Q840, Nvidia GTX 460M sli and 8GB RAM I'v got average 45 FPS on benchmark witch is pretty much the same as F1 2010 (49 FPS) Thanks Codemasters :)
Much anticipated game turns out to be a big disappointment
30 December 2011
Conclusion: The last time i bought an F1 game was F1 '97 for the Playstation, and what a fine game it was graphically as well as gameplay. Even today i reckon apart from the graphics looking ropey the gameplay is still good. Not so for F1 2011 on the PC. It looks and feels like a console game port. Sure the graphics aren't too bad, but the game play is frustrating from the off. Firstly the game takes minutes to load after you have logged into Windows live.
Conclusion: If you have used the game GP4 this drives very much like that, the graphics are similar. Only a bit better on the track but a lot better on cars and people. The graphics have a crisp clear bright feeling to them, happily nothing like the smeary misty over exposed look of Grid. Nice to see all the new tracks, I started to use a Thrustmaster steering wheel, but despite many adjustments I found it very tough to control the car.
Excerpt: Ho iniziato da poco a giocare a questo videogame per PC,fino ad ora ho quasi solamente note positive per questo prodotto. Codemaster ha deciso di farci vivere in prima persona la carriera di un pilota, ci permette di iniziare dalla gavetta in scuderie no ...
Summary: Tänkte först vänta till F1 2012, men då det känns som det endast är team/förare och mindre saker som kommer skilja så slog jag till på 2011 för 249 :- Bara spelat ett vanligt race och just skapat en karriär. Första intrycken är att jag äntligen hittat ett F1 spel som passar mig, verkar riktigt kul faktiskt. Har tidigare kört MODs osv på dator men aldrig har möjlighet till Q1,Q2 och Q3 funnits.

Excerpt: Con f1 2011 ti immergi davvero in una esperienza unica senza precedenti nel mondo della Formula 1, incredibili novità come la Sefty care il kers e il drs, il realismo non è mai stato a questi livelli con una grafica mozzafiato assolutamente da non perder ...
Pros: esperienza unica, grafica che sembra reale .
Cons: bisogna possedere una buona scheda video per giocare al massimo
Excerpt: Buenos dias amigos y amigas de Ciao, os comento éste juego es el sucesor del F1 2010 la verdad es que viene muy mejorada nmo solo en graficos si no en realismo y dicersion. Vas a tener a tu disposicion una gama de coches amplísima pero no vas a poder utilizarlos todos ya que vas a tener que ir ganando puntos para poder subir de categoría y escojer coche y accesorios para él.
Pros: MAS FACIL DE MANEJAR QUE EL ANTERIOR
Cons: NO ME GUSTA MUCHO EL MUNDO DE LOS COCHES DE CARRERAS
