I made fun of the addition of the warm-up lap during my first-impressions video of F1 2016, but I'm now starting to get why it's there. When you're fully immersed in a season of F1, there's a building tension as you drive your car to the grid, weaving to warm the tyres, braking to keep the discs hot and checking out any changes to the weather since you last drove on the track. As you pull up to the line and wait for the rest of the grid to form behind you, your heart rate rises. For a moment, you feel like this is your one shot at success. No rewinds, no second chances. It's absolutely brilliant. It's a bit of a shame there's a fade-to-black between the end of the warm-up lap and the start of the race, but it doesn't reduce the enjoyment by much. The start sequence has changed, too. You now have manual control over your clutch, so it's easy to get a jump start or get bogged down off the line. It makes things a lot more unpredictable, especially when the AI in F1 2016 is incredibly unforgiving. Anyone who hasn't bought an F1 game in a few years should absolutely pick up F1 2016, as should long-time fans of the series. It's the best Codemasters F1 game yet and, despite a few rough edges, it's fantastic fun.
Ok for starters I love racing games, but I don't know anything about F1 racing IRL. I looked at the reviews on the previous games and didn't have high expectations for this game based on the older games. I watched a few videos on youtube and thought that this game looked interesting and gave it a buy. (I needed a new racing game for my Logitech G27 to be unpacked.) I booted up the game and made sure my wheel was calibrated, jumped into a quick race... and was ?????? off that I couldn't move because the gas and brake were bound to the accelerator even after many times rebinding the keys. Turns out I was not the game and instead a windows 10 issue that changed the Logitech launcher for the racing wheel. I unistalled my laucher and downloaded a new one... http://support.logitech.com/en_us/product/g27-racing-wheel ...And bam! Problem solved. I am now racing. The graphics are beautiful and the game runs oh so smooth! I am writing this review after playing the game for 10 hours straight and loving every minute. Had to take a break to eat and to avoid the pain from clicking through gears for so many hours straight. The career mode had been super engrossing and I am finally getting somewhat better at the game and still trying to learn all the tire rules. This review is for all the people that want a good racing game, but may be turned off by some of the negative reviews from people that had problems with their racing wheels. Oh BTW they already released a patch for the people out there that had some other wheels and some issues. Great job with this game! It is a breath of fresh air for a developer to release a game that isn't broken for the first month after it launches. Hopefully they will add some more customization content for the vehicles for free. I would really like to see sponsor stickers, customizable paint schemes, ability to change helmets and get new helmets, and also to create your own racing team. I would rate this game a 9.5/10 (Definetly worth a buy!)
