Looking forward to having a go.

yeah not bad at all for an F1 game, they are usually very one dimensional but with all the extra stuff like your agent, helmet colour and other nice bits like the way you talk to the press etc etc, it actually makes it an interesting game seeing what goes on in the background at race weekends. I especially love the engineer bit where he breifs you on whats what. Unlucky on the slicks though man I aint even got a race yet lol I keep crashing out lol in my 1st one i was supposed to get 18th to carry on but fluffed it on the last lap

Its a nice looking game, no commentary?? hmmm, and i love it when im just behind the leader and it comes out with that your 5 seconds behind or infront when you can easily see your not lol

Its a good game, but there are things it can get picked apart on

Play it for what it is, the good bits outweigh the bad, i do miss the timing at the bottom to show where you are relevent to whos directly infront/behind you, you have to keep looking at the top left which aint always a good idea when the times comes up if its on a couple of busy corners, unless u leave it till the start finish each time, just me griping i guess :)

Yep, got bored very quick, wasnt helped by the fact I got 2nd and it didnt show me on the podium!!

All that effort into choosing helmets, tyres, car spec, doing interviews, but not one video of a podium celebration!

Back to fifa it is!
