F1 2010 (2010)

Formula 1 racing based on the 2010 season. Work your way up from the bottom over three, five or seven years to achieve the most prestigious prize in motorsport: the title of Formula 1 World Champion.

8/10

Authentically structured Formula 1 game undermined by the staggering choice not to employ any recognisable FOM television graphics and shipping with a few game-spoiling bugs. The excellent career mode sees you striving to work up from trying not to finish last, through sneaking into the points, being a top ten contender, grasping a rare podium, to winning a race on a favoured track and finally putting together a championship campaign with a top team. It brilliantly insists on having you go through practice and qualifying (which can be time-accelerated) and a minimum 20% race distance (all the way up to 100%) making every event feel like an event. The core racing experience is outstanding; they harry and overtake where possible and this may be the first racing game where I’ve never being unfairly taken out by AI. Gran Turismo 5 may be the best driving game on this console generation, but F1 2010 is the best racing game.

Classified 3+ by PEGI. The game is only suitable for persons who have reached the age of 3 or over.

F1 06 Formula One Championship Edition aka F1CE (2006)

8/10

Racing game which gets the racing and sense of speed absolutely right, delivers the best online racing implementation paradigm ever and best back-marker AI for lapped cars (they predictably and courteously ease out of the throttle and move off line) but these outstanding points seems to emphasise other minor shortfalls in presentation, user-friendliness, weather that completely breaks the game (your pit crew refuse to change you on to wet or intermediate tyres and will fuel you three laps short of race distance and won’t let you back in the pits and the AI continues to circulate at dry pace) and the slightly unbalanced difficulty level (a Studio Liverpool tradition).
