Summary: I bought this game,because I just recently became a fan of F1. I like racing games and I feel that this is a good representation of F1. This can be a time consumindy game if you choose the career path. However, if you are looking for a race game to just race and not looking for a career racing game, then you will also like this game. It isn't necessary to invest a substantial amount of time to enjoy this game.
Great in-depth, racing simulator. Not for your average racing gamer.

Summary: If you are looking for a detailed, realistic racing simulator, then F1 2012 is at the top of the list. The game play is fast and fluid, and the tracks and cars are very responsive. There is a learning curve, so don't expect to win 1st place on your first race. I would also say that this game is geared towards those with a taste for racing and knowledge of the F1 circuit.
Summary: Buen juego, la simulacion esta muy bien, se siente como van cambiando las condiciones del monoplaza a medida que avanza la carrera lo malo es que en casi todos los gp llueve. Good game, the simulation is very good, it feels like the conditions of the car change as the race progresses the trouble is that in almost every gp rains.
Summary: This is a challenging game. The sounds are great and the visuals stunning. Pace of play is clunky due to long loads. When playing co-op pace and chat interrupted by loading screens. I have finished a season w a friend and its a blast. We just started a new season doing long race weekend and its a lot of fun. Main reason 4 and not 5 stars is clunky interface. Its silly to not have unlimited time between practice, quals, race.
Summary: I am new to F1 2012 and decided to give it a try. I have been looking for a good racing simulation that actually reflects real racing and is fun and exciting to play and at the same time having been disappointed in some of the Nascar racing entries in recent years. I don't understand why EA and others cant make a Papyrus type sim that matches modern day graphics and playability. So far it seems that F1 2012 is equal parts simulation and excitement.
Summary: If you like F1 and you like racing games, this is a must buy. I have played a lot of F1 games over the years, the old PC EA ones up through the Sony championship edition game for Ps3 and none come close to this. This is hands down the best F1 game I've ever played. If you don't like F1 or simulation racing then this is probably not for you though. It's more realistic and challenging than Gran Turismo even.
Summary: I have had this game only for a little over a month now and while I'm still not very good at it, it's still the best auto racing game I've driven on PS3. I clarify "on PS3" because I bought the Need For Speed - The Run after playing that one on an Xbox 360 with a $40 wireless wheel and that game was fantastic. That same title on PS3 using the standard controller was nothing more than a source of aggravation.
Summary: I bought F1 2010 a couple of years ago and thought Codemasters did a good job with it. I skipped over F1 2011 after reading some less than stellar reviews, but decided to go "blind" and buy F1 2012 without reading a whole lot of consumer reviews. Overall, I'm pretty impressed. I'm about 10 races through my first season and here is a list of my pros and cons: Pros: DRS/KERS - realistic and definitely keeps you busy in the cockpit Young Driver Test - Wasn't sure about this...
Summary: Got the game on time, so 10/10 The game is, well I got 2011, which is very good, so hoping this was good, if not better, no, it's just too technical, I could not see a 6 year old setting his or her car before you start !
