Summary: Not ready to let the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship season go? Good, because now instead of cheering on your favorite teams in your favorite cars as they blaze around your favorite circuits, it's your turn to jump into the driver's seat.
Excerpt: The F1 racing franchise gained a lot of steam with a stellar 2011 entry that made many aware of the series. It was a top-shelf game in every regard, with impressive graphics and excellent racing action – even if it was hurt by a somewhat sterile presentation.
Summary: Look, you're never going to get to drive a Formula 1 car, so you should be grateful that these simulations exist. And if you (virtually) drive like I do, you should be glad that you'll never drive a F1 car -- we'd all be dead. I suppose there are good F1 players out there, though.
Conclusion: Codemasters is looking to set their own record for consecutive F1 championships with F1 2013 Classic Edition . They've carried over everything from last year's excellent game and they've also added in a timely set of classic drivers and circuits.
Excerpt: Not a massive update to the F1 2012 game, but a re-tune. And as it is always with re-tunes, it can go either way. For me, F1 2013 is a disappointment in some rather critical aspects, and unless you are pedantic about having the very latest game version in your console, you would be better off...
Conclusion: Concept: Introduce classic F1 cars and scenarios, but add little else
Graphics: A sepia tone is thrown over the classic races
Sound: I swear the audio from your engineer is exactly the same as last year.
