Summary: I really want to rate this a 5 star, but have only had the game a couple of days now. I started playing the CM F1 games at 2011 and IMO - F1 2011 was a hell of a game. 2012 was ok, and I feel like CM really picked up from 11 going into 13 well, while F1 2012 was more, 'eh'. I will say that I do not like being forced into having to do the drivers test once getting the game installed.
Summary: Overall, very similar to the F1 2012 game, but one main component: tyre wear. The driveability of the car is quite limited by extreme - and maybe very realistic - tyre wear compared to F1 2012. It took me a while to get used to controlling the car into and out of corners, in an attempt to preserve tyres while also racing.
Summary: graphics are better on Xbox one but still looking great, the sound is superb but the you have to have a steering wheel and pedals to play property, playing with the game-pad is very uncomfortable
Summary: I've been an F1 fan for a while now and this game does a pretty good job of conveying the nuances of the sport, while providing a fairly realistic driving experience, if you have a Force feeback steering wheel and pedals, which is strongly recommended. While you can drive it with a controller, its not easy, and not the best way to enjoy the game. Note I say game - while the level of this title is definetely above arcade, it approaches but is not exclusively a simulation.
Summary: Being an hardcore "PC Driving Simulation" fan, I always looked to PS3 racing titles as "Outstanding graphics, crappy driving physics". However this title did pleasantly surprised. Ok, the driving physics may not be as realistic as in some PC titles, but it does have some features that are extremely well made, like the dry-rain transitions, driving under heavy rain and the one I liked more, the marbles outside the racing line, that not only have a visual representation on...
Summary: The one thing that attracted me to F1 2013 was the classic content, but that does feel a little underdone. Classic McLarens such as the dominant MP4/4 are conspicuous in their absence, and there are some classic tracks forgotten by this additional content (e.g. the old Hockenheimring, Magny-Cours, Fuji, Adelaide etc.).
