F1 2012 – Review (360, PS3, PC)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: When Codemasters picked up the F1 license again and started to reboot the franchise it was a breath of fresh air and the attempt to create as much realism into the franchise as possible was lapped up by fans and critics alike. Career modes were in depth and racing online was a lot of fun as people warmed to the handling model and sterility of what encompasses an F1 weekend.

F1 2012 Review

VideoGamer.com
20 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Motorsport can deliver incredible drama. So far the 2012 season has been exciting and intense, despite Maldonado's attempts to hospitalise every driver on the grid. Codemasters' F1 2012, however, packs a lot less surprise but just the right amount of drama. Even though Noel Gallagher’s nasally ballad ‘What A Life’ reverberates into earshot during the opening pre-roll, there’s no glamorous, champagne-spurting superstar lifestyle here.

  • Conclusion: So overall then a really strong outing from Codemasters and F1 2012, I was plesantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this game and look forward to seeing just how well I finish up at the end of the race season. While I never have and likely never will be a full on fan of Formula 1, this is still a great racing game. It offers a great challange to racing fans simply because of the speed and precision of the cars.

  • Conclusion: Such thoughts may be wishful thinking. Codemasters has a duty to slowly improve its racing franchise. When out on the track, this is the best F1 simulation of the generation. It offers a real challenge for players of all levels. Unfortunately, a lack of new ideas hinders the rest of the game. Fans will be ready for a completely new experience this time next year. Right now, I can't see this appealing to anyone other than those who have already committed to the franchise.

  • Conclusion: Other, subtle changes to Career mode make it more focused than it was last year. Gone are the parc ferme interviews and first-person navigation, instead replaced by glossy menus that show important information up front. Unfortunately, the interface still lacks the personality of its Dirt siblings , and the familiar in-game emails and paper clippings do little to add to the authenticity.
  • Pros: Thrilling and believable racing, Approachable for newcomers, Additional game modes create a more complete F1 package, Wonderful audio design.
  • Cons: Off-track action is dull, No Grand Prix mode.

  • Summary: Codemasters' third Formula One game sees the series finally find its feet. A broader range of game modes gives you much more to do, while great care has been taken to ease newcomers into the game. Though F1 2012 doesn't capture the magic that surrounds the sport, the on-circuit action is the best and most exciting of the series.
  • Pros: Thrilling and believable racing, Approachable for newcomers, Additional game modes create a more complete F1 package, Wonderful audio design
  • Cons: Off-track action is dull, No Grand Prix mode

  • Summary: F1 2012 lovingly simulates the premier motorsport. While newcomers will find all the tools necessary to learn the game, Codemasters' offering caters best to lovers of both racing simulation and Formula 1.
  • Pros: Feature-dense and true-to-life, F1 2012 is a gift to lovers of the discipline.
  • Cons: Has a steep learning curve, and doesn’t have nearly as much to offer outsiders.
