Summary: I got into f1 on the TV a few years back loved it on the stop I didn't buy 2010 or 2011 but 2012 is rad . the feel it gives u after doing really well on a race and winning is so super rad!!. I don't used assist at all I race how they do in real life and its a way better feel. for first timers setting up the car is really tuff because too much or too less will mess your race up n weather u also have to watch out for .
Summary: I do a lot of HPDE's, so I have some actual experience on track in various cars. I'm impressed by the simulation of F1 2012, it's way better than 2011. The car handles much more realistically, the graphics and sound are great, and the tracks are recreated wonderfully. I bought a Logitech G27 racing wheel to go with it and the whole package is just awesome.
Summary: This is a great game for racing but it is really hard to get past the learning stage of the game so you can really start racing. This is not my first racing game so its not just me. I also didn't use the ps3 controller I use a thrustmaster tr500 steering wheel and pedals which might of been my problem but I wanted the real feel of racing.
