This is the first racing game I've ever played so far and I'm absolutely into F1 and when I saw some videos, I really wanted to get it.

When I first started the game, I didn't have any problems at all and the Young Drivers' Test really helped me to understand and learn the basics. After the Young Drivers' Test you'll have your first ever race weekend in F1 2013. The Practice Session is really helpful to get used to the track and the handling of the car etc. It really takes some time to get used to the handling, the oversteer, the understeer, the track and I recommend to use the full practice season, or even restart it when you're running out of time. The driving assists really help and allow you to focus on the track and its hardest corners. I spent about 7 hours on the Melbourne circuit to get used to the car and the track itself. Once you got used to the handling, oversteer, understeer etc. it won't take that long to get used to the following tracks. If you really want to participate in leagues later on, you have to put a high amount of effort and time into it, but you will get rewarded with some epic battles afterwards ;)

All in all, the game is a worthy F1 racing game and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in Formula 1. I also recommend buying a steering wheel if you don't have one already.

All important features are included, but of course there always are some things that would be nice to have, but you can't have everything. I'd give this game 9,5 out of 10 points.

I really recommend a console gamepad or a wheel first of all, and I dont think either gives you a competitive advantage over the other. The sensitivity and deadzones can be altered when using a gamepad.
Gameplay and driving physics are very solid, although it can sometimes feel very 'on rails' at times as the car doesn't move around much vertically under normal load. However you can still definitely feel the balance of the car and how it moves and slides, and setup changes make a meaningful difference.
AI is extremely good in single player, like racing a real driver, and they do not cause many incidents which disrupt the race. The level of pace they race at can be changed and on legendary mode they are pretty formidable. However when overlapping them things can get a bit hairy as when you are approaching them and they receive the blue flag, they move over to the opposite side of the track to you. This can cause problems such as when you take a wide line to enter a corner the AI moves to the apex as they think this will get them out of the way, but as you take the racing line to overtake them and cut back to the apex they will be obstructing you.
Lots of single player game modes which are fun, but in the shortened 'season challenge' mode the hardest AI difficulty makes them about 2 seconds a lap slower than the legendary AI, which for some like myself just isnt competitive enough.
The full career mode is very in depth and focuses on you beating your team mate, which is what will earn you contract offers. This is very good because you are both given the same car with the same technology, and it comes down to driving skill in the end.
Overall it is a very solid racer and very fun to play. If you just enjoy getting the feel for cars like me the game can be very fun. 9/10

Considering I called F1 2012 a brilliant game, F1 2013 is... Well, even more brilliant?

The cars feel amazing as the handling is completely different, and it also features a lot more content than its predecessor. Talking about content, of course I can't forget to mention the new classics mode, which most likely won't entertain you for longer than a few hours, but is still great and definitely fun.

F1 2013 is just what F1 2012 should have been.

So, if you haven't had the chance to play F1 2013 yet, go play it.

Great game without a doubt. Scenario mode as made great improvements since 2012 but classics feels a bit more like a DLC than the game it self. Online is starting to have lag issues but the gameplay is prettymuch spot on. 8.5/10

Its a decent game not the best but not the worst. Theres some connection issues with the game in Multiplayer which is hard for league racing in terms of finishing races. But apart from that career mode is pretty fun if you have the motivation to complete countless seasons. Theres also scenario mode which is pretty fun to complete and you get some achievements complething them. Time trial is good practice for league races which i allways suggest to do which is how i practice for league races myself. Season Challenge is pretty easy and fast which i dont enjoy a 100% but its something to do if your bored and dont fancy doing career mode.

So i rate the game at a respectful 7/10

I might be a bit late on this one, but reviwig a sequel is very hard. Do you review it as an individual game, irrespectful of it's predecessor or judge it as what it is. So here it goes:
Individual Game
Well it's a great game with good quality game-play. Driving a F1 car is great fun and F1 '13 has captured it greatly. There's a huge verity of game-modes to chose from. Don't want to do a complete career, then do season challenge. There's quite a verity to choose from. The graphics are good, but not amazing. It also runs at a good frame-rate. The car models look good, and the tracks look like their real life counterparts, which all adds to the immersion. Overall it's a solid game, if you're a fan of F1 it's must have.
As A Sequel
Well, it certainly doesn't add much to '12. The only thing is Classic Cars, but as half of it's DLC it does feel quite cheap by Code-masters to do this. So it falls down when compared to '12. If you have it, just pick up a mod that changes the cars, and save yourself a load of money.

This game is rewarding but extremely difficult if you lack a steering wheel or controller. It has a steep learning curve but it is definitely worth the cash. F1 2013 is a solid F1 simulator, through and through.

After 125 hours played:
this game is amazing, it feels very real, I play with analogic controls and have the traction control and ABS desactivated and after geting used to it and controling spins and braking lock ups the lap time is slightly improoved with respect to using driving assists. Despite tipical racing games F1 2013 doesn't feel arcade at all, other cars don't wait for you if you do a mistake (like in need for speed, gran turismo, GRID, etc) the radio comments are just fine, not annoying stupid things like in americanized racing games as Dirt 2. Damage simulation is not totally realistic, if you hit another car very softly nothing is broken, while in reality any contact will break some aerodinamic part of the car.

Have to say that I don't play video games since 6-7 years so obviously the graphics part looks like outstanding to me, even with a laptop graphics card (AMD Raedon HD8670M) the details, resolution and framerate are very good.

The sound is another strong aspect of the game, try to conect it to a good (powerfull) speaker or hifi system, and turn up the volume, the engine sound in the straight lines is astonishing.

In grand prix mode you can choose: 3 laps, 5 laps, 25% race, 50% race and 100% race.

I use to play 25% race, it lasts 20 minuts with 1 pit stop, managing the fuel maping is important, this strategycal aspect is one of the things that makes this game so realistic, pure race simulator no arcade game.

About lap times, they are quite similar to 2013 F1 season, maybe 1-2 second faster for a really good lap.

Problems:
At the begining the full screen mode didn't work, just change fullscreen from "false" to "true" in some file and problem fixed. After some update of steam it stoped working, fixed downolading the last drivers for my ATI Radeon GPU.

The game is nice, pretty much a carbon copy of F1 2012 with some minor graphical changes. I wouldn't recommend this game or F1 2012 for one main reason. If you are into force feedback from a steering wheel then I would suggest checking to make sure your steering wheel might not have issues with this game. My Logitech one has issues and makes the game very difficult to play properly because of it.

-- Solution -- If you have this issue, you might want to go into the control panel, game controller area... and set all force feedback options to 100%. Then go to the game reduce deadzone down to 1.25% and everything seems to work then.

I find the AI even on easy mode to be hard at times, especially given that I'm not 100% into F1 racing. So, this game I would only recommend to those that are looking for a challenge or just for something to change up from driving the same games in their collection.
