Does it add lots to the previous years instalment? Not particularly. The game does feel considerably snappier though. Some issues like the AI still being a little stupid can be irksome, but such minor complains will not stop you liking the game. If you like driving games buy it while its on sale, if you follow F1 and don't already have this game buy it NOW.

I didn't like the game first. I was struggling with idiotic AI, and I found the game was way too easy. Took a long break, found a few mods and *badampam tss*, it's awesome!
True To Life AI Season 2013 makes this game unbelievably fun to play, FUSION HD Tires and HD Tracks pack makes it look super cool, and the debugging options give a bit more options in-game.
Sure, the first laps of the races are a bit easy still, but after, it's true racing. Started a career with Marussia (with AI difficulty Legend, 50% races with TTL 50% scaled tyre database), qualified last on first two races but with huge first laps, great tactics and a bit of luck managed to get some points.
Simply awesome.

this games physics engine is really accurate, and the depth in the mechanics when customizing your car is really good. The only downside to this game is the sensitivity in the steering. PLayng this game on a keyboard can be a challange at times because you have to judge perfectly the point where the apex of the corner and the time to steer into that apex; if you are too soon, you will understeer, and if you are too late, you will oversteer the corner. This sensitivity makes streemlining difficult too, because its really hard to maintain the colinear motion behind the car in front. This sensitivity does however make the game a lot more chalanging, and makes the F1 car feel nimble and makes chicanes a lot of fun.
