Conclusion: There is little question that F1 2011 is a better game overall than F1 2010. It solves most of the issues with glitches from last year, tweaks the handling for the better, introduces some new gameplay tricks, features new multiplayer modes, and improves the overall presentation quite a bit. We liked F1 2010, even with some glitches, but F1 2011 is a definite improvement.
Excerpt: Codemasters a décidé de reprendre à son compte la licence de Formule 1 et l'éditeur récolte aujourd'hui le fruit de son travail. Après un volet F1 2010 qui a véritablement relancé la franchise et offert aux joueurs un titre de Formule 1 digne de ce nom, cette nouvelle mouture 2011 était à son tour très attendue. Le précédent volet ayant répondu à de nombreuses attentes, Codemasters pouvait alors se contenter d'offrir une juste continuité.
Conclusion: mode involves gamers in what it takes to be a successful F1 driver and constructor team. During race events, including qualifying, gamers are given an objective, such as finishing in a certain place (or preferably higher). By meeting that objective, players “rank up” with experience points that eventually allow them, in the constructor role, to upgrade the team’s cars with newer and better parts, giving the gamer a much stronger opportunity to not only win races but...
Summary: Parents need to know that F1 2011 is a hyper-realistic racing simulator that is loaded with corporate logos and may be much too difficult for some players (especially younger ones). The game presents Formula 1 racing in a true-to-life fashion, blending all the complications that go with navigating a winding track as competitors race past you and the business side of F1. That makes it extremely unwelcoming to casual driving sim fans.
Excerpt: You're screaming towards a rather terrifying-looking chicane at 180mph. The car shakes, the V8 engine roars, and the trees, barriers and spectator stands either side of you form a messy grey blur. You've played F1 2010 to death, though, so you'll be fine; coming out the other side and nailing pole position is second nature to a seasoned driver such as yourself.
Conclusion: The additional features are certainly very welcome but I feel as though I’m just playing a slightly better version of F1 2010, which was still a good game in its own right. Despite the flaws, I still very much enjoyed F1 2011. I would definitely recommend it especially if you’re a fan yet to experience this in a racing game as it does capture the feel of F1 quite well. Race on!
Excerpt: Codemasters’ second Formula 1 game, F1 2011, the sequel to last year’s F1 2010 again shows a laser-like focus on delivering an authentic Formula 1 experience, but this time comes with a more well-rounded set of features to complement the fantastic racing experience.
