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.

Forza Motorsport 2: McLaren F1 GT Vodafone custom paint job

Just in time for the anticipated public reveal of Forza Motorsport 3 at E3 2009, I’ve remembered a couple of Forza 2 liveries that I never posted before. Sadly, I can’t remember anything about their creation. This one is clearly inspired by the McLaren Formula One team and their Vodafone sponsorship.

Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli: 348 TB F1 custom livery

This is another red, white and black paint job and the principle design is the silhouette of a Formula One car along the side (a 2007 Renault, specifically). The silhouette was created by placed red blanking pieces over the chequered flag pattern and there’s nothing else to say. The painting went really smoothly.
