Excerpt: The roar of an engine and the smell of petrol will forever remind me of one thing: my dear old Dad. This is because he's a racing driver, you see - well, kind of. Every weekend he traipses off around the country to race 250cc super karts (0-60 in under three seconds, to put that in perspective). Not surprisingly, he has penchant for Formula 1 games too, having played everything from Formula 1 97 on the PSone to Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix 4 on the PC.
Conclusion: Back to the Future Episode 3: Citizen Brown is easily the best, most fun episode of the season so far. The whole episode feels polished and carefully plotted, not just in regard to the story but the puzzles too. The only problems stem from it being far too short and far too easy, but the puzzles are at least fun to get through. The story continues to get more twisted, and every time it’s looked like Marty and Doc have sorted things out something else goes wrong.
Conclusion: Of course, such problems will hardly make a difference for the die hard fan. F1 2010 has been a long time coming, and those who enjoy the sport will find such value in this title. If the career and time trials aren't enough, online play will add a competitiveness that cannot be replicated from the AI. Even here, you can commit to a full season's worth of play, or a quick lap with the friends when you've got some time free.
Summary: In F1 2010 gamers will take on the full, expanded grid in a variety of game modes including GRAND PRIX, Championship, Time Trial and an extensive, innovative Career mode. F1 2010 will also feature a highly advanced damage model, fully dynamic weather system and extensive competitive multiplayer options.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The latest offering from highly-acclaimed developers Codemasters, famous for their ‘Dirt’ franchise, is definitely THE F1 game that will keep fans glued to their screen for some heavy fun. Non-Fans, casual gamers? Not so much.
Conclusion: The score is kept down by the number of unacceptable bugs in the game. If they are fixed then by all means, consider this a 8.5/10 as the game is excellent otherwise, but the fact that these issues slipped by Codemasters is very disappointing.
Excerpt: Codemasters is known for delivering racing games that balance a serious approach with widespread appeal. This year, they've set their sights on Formula 1, hoping to win over fans and attract players who don't follow the sport. Does F1 2010 take the pole position or could it use a few more tweaks under the hood? Your career in F1 2010 begins with a short interview to personalize your experience and meet the press.
