Overall its a great game especially if you have tetris instead of PC, Its hard, even at easiest levels its still hard and very very frustrating. Its extremely challengeing, and very rewarding. The longer you play the better you will understand the physics of your car. Then when you change it, it starts all over again :)

This is the cheap way of getting to know a lot about F1 in general, before every race in real life I spin 20ish laps on the track to be sure to remember every corner, watching the real race after that is much much better and more understandable.

The only con I see is trouble with online multiplayer, it does not work for me. All in all 10/10, my favorite raceing sim, and guys if you are not cheating, first time you win the race in career, you will feel extremely good and proud :)

Although it's already a old game of F1 series, I still like to play it and don't need to buy new series, in my opinion this series is so far best of them (quality, sounds, etc). Worth buying.

Be sure to rek everyone with HRT in legendary mode, if you can...

Fantastic game! Logitech GT driving force makes it even better. :) Playing it only on cockpit view with all assists-off and expert difficulty for real experience. It looks like I could soon handle next difficulty level and maybe at some point without automatic gearbox. :D

I had no issues with force feedback that some players reported. Everything is perfect.

Just got bored with my newest racing sims from 2014 and decided to have a go at my old F1 2012, three years later. I'm supprised how good it still looks and how fun it is. It's easy to just forget about these pearls when there's so much new stuff being released. F1 2012 still gives the newer sims a race and in some cases, eaven come out at the top! If I recomend it? Oh yes!
