The game is great; Sadly I feel if sometimes the game is rigged for you to loose 89.99% of the time. But here is my statement;

It's a firm game, my initial impressions are it's pretty good and worth buying if you like the F1 series. If you're just a casual gamer and occasionally play racing games then I'd probably wait until the next one comes out.

This is a FIRM 10/10

Now i don't play many racing games on my pc (long live the xbox360) but my buddy shared this with me from the family thing and i thouhgt i would give it a go, now the last f1 racer was the codemasters/ego 2011 game and to accounts the only things better is the textures and updated team drivers..

The power unit sound its just a loud high pitched whine. the braking actualy works but the stearing is now bs so good work the worst and best part of 2011 game has been swaped. Where did the honest carrer mode campaign mode go?

Maybe it's just being on a pc (that far outstrips my old console) but it seems as a game far worse than 2011 f1.
There are plenty of improvements from the radio calls to tyer deg and picking up marbles, to the new annimations to how you react to impacts..

maybe i just like the sport itself too much, or the old game but thats my oppinion, if ya want it take it if not **** off

A good mod to the former game of the series basically.

Biggest downside is how forgiving the braking is... Really hard to lock your tyres even with no assists...

Still a lot of fun !

i bought this game a long time ago and when i first played it i just could not get the hang of driving round the tracks using a key board so i left the game alone and on thursday 16/06/16 i decided to give it another go and i finally managed it and i had such fun i just could not get off the game i am using a laptop for this game and upgraded from windows 8 to windows 10 and it plays great with no problems well worth the money (i have now moved onto F1 2015 and i shall see if i can play that then i will write a review )i use to play F1 games on consoles so this is the first time on a laptop using a key board you can use either i just prefer keyboard if you love watching the real thing then you will love playing this i highly recommend the game especially to all those who just love the speed and the frill of being an F1 driver you can choose your F1 driver hero to use on the game as your screen name and you actually have your hero as your team mate for example i chose Lewis for my name and i picked the mercedes team so my team mate of course is Lewis Hamilton if you pick your name as Nico and team mercedes then your team mate would be Nico Roseburg and that goes for all the teams another example name and team you choose could be Jenson and team Maclaren so your team mate would then be Jenson Button and so on

Pros:

- Removed the annoying young driver test, has been replaced by a 1 lap race to determine your difficulty, or you can skip it entirely and set the difficulty yourself! Really like this feature personally
- New cars, liveries, tracks, generally looks more streamlined and visually appealing
- Handling/braking feel better and more realistic than previous versions (to me anyway)
- Cheaper price than previous versions at launch

Cons:
- New game coming out early in 2015 so unless you're a diehard fan of F1, probably wait until then
- Small steps and improvements from previous versions, nothing gamechanging
- Would've been nice to see scenario mode and/or season challenge extended in some way so they're not something you just play through once and forget about

It's a solid game, my initial impressions are it's pretty good and worth buying if you like the F1 series. If you're just a casual gamer and occasionally play racing games then I'd probably wait until the next one comes out.

F1 2014 is the successor of F1 2013 and when Codemasters announced this game, they mentioned that there won't be any major changes in it. The reason for the lack of new features in the game is simply that Codemasters is focusing on the New-Gen F1 2015 game completely, to make it even better than the current games. They will also use and develop a completely new engine for F1 2015, which is taking time and that's probably why they didn't change much from F1 2013 to F1 2014, yet there are minor changes which have a big influence on the Gameplay.

First off, you will notice that the Young Drivers' Test is no longer in the game, but has been replaced by the Evaluation-Test, which is automatically adjusting the AI-Level to your personal skill-level. The Young Drivers' Test helped to understand the basics and kind of guided you through the game. Now with the new Evaluation-Test you are thrown into a lap of Monza without any explanations at all. I recommend retaking the test several times to get used to the handling etc.
Also, you can now pick whatever Team you want to pick in Career mode and you therefore don't have to wait for a contract offer.

Now we're coming to the gameplay-changing part of F1 2014. First, there is this in my opinion annoying sound of the new V6 engines, which is awful but unfortunately realistic, so it isn't Codemasters fault. Also there are 8 gears instead of the 7 gears of the F1 2013 Season and you can't adjust the gear ratios anymore. The design of the cars is good, but unluckily the Williams Design was changed a bit, because Codemasters had licensing-issues with Martini but there are mods already which allow you to use the original design of Williams.
The handling has also changed in F1 2014. You can actually feel that there is less mechanical grip. In addition to that, the car also has a more unstable rear end now, causing more oversteer and this is making driving without assists even tougher than it was back in F1 2013.

Now we're coming to the AI:
The AI (atleast on Legend) is now more aggressive than it was in 2013, which is providing a bigger challenge for Players. Also, the overtakes of the AI in corners got improved, so if they overtake on the outside, they actually stay on track rather than leave the track and lose 4 Positions like in 2013. Yet still, if they overtake on the inside, they still back off and don't even try to go for a gap.

All in all, the game has made minor improvements, but does not feature any major changes to F1 2013. For me, as a League and Multiplayer-Racer, it is crucial to get this game, as it is a very long period of time until F1 2015 will be released. I recommend buying the game if you are a F1-Fan even if you already played F1 2013, because F1 2014 features the new Season, new cars, new handling etc.

Codemaster analyst: "It's pretty clear everybody loved and keeps loving the Classic mode we introduced last year, someone says he's logged more laps on Imola alone than on all 2014 tracks combined! We're very content with this... sowhat are we going to do this year, boss?"
Codemaster boss: "REMOVE IT COMPLETELY".
Codemaster analyst: B-but boss...
Codemaster boss: "I said remove it! Also, make the cars bounce like rubber toys everytime they hit the wall and/or another car. No need for good physics in a FORMULA ONE game".
Codemaster analyst: W-we already did this...
Codemaster boss: "Very good. Sell price: 50€. We'll make it 25 in a year, when we copy-paste this into F1 2015 as "bonus content". Lol. Now leave me alone, the Moto GP is on this weekend... ah THAT's a good sport...".

First off, let me open by disagreeing with most people's statements of "it's just 2013 but with new engine sounds/team rosters/tracks" while yes, on the surface, it seems that way, however, when you dig a little deeper, it's oh so much more.

for this review, I'll begin with Pros/Cons, then go through each of the main focuses of negative comments about the game.

Pros:
-New Turbo engine sounds are awesome (in my opinion)
-The handling rework has made the game so much more about skill now. 2013 required a lot of skill to drive, but 2014 makes you re-learn all the tracks with added braking zones due to the new car physics.
-The AI is now extremely competitive, and will give you an even greater challenge while racing.
-Young Driver Test: out, single lap of Monza with the option to skip: in. Frankly, I found the test to be both rewarding and infuriating in 2013. most challenges in it were fairly simple and easy, however, when it came to getting that one silver medal converted into gold to unlock all the teams at the start of career, it got rather frustrating when it got to a point where I simply couldn't squeeze any more time out of the lap. This game, however, has you driving a single lap around the Italian GP circuit of Monza which you can even skip and select the game difficulty yourself.
-Career mode now has the option of Short/Medium/Long career featuring 7/12/19 races respectively. So if you want to race an F1 career, but don't have the patience for the entire calendar, then you can miss 7 or 12 races out if you like.

Cons:
-Codemasters is very limited (much in the same way as EA is with Fifa) that they are contractually obliged to release a new F1 game every season, no matter how much/little has changed, which explains why 2013 and 2014 are extremely similar.
-Some would've liked to see a new UI (I'm fine with re-using the old one, I'd rather not have to re-learn where everything is in menus as well as having to re-learn how to drive properly)
-Mercedes is stupidly OP compared to all other teams.
-Still no formation lap prior to the race and no podium scenes
-No F1 Classics this season

Now the Pros and Cons are out of the way, time for some issue addressing.

-"It's Exactly the same as F1 2013"
Wrong. it isn't. Why don't you go ahead and do a lap of Monza on F1 2013, then play 2014 and try driving the exact same lines at the exact same speed as the previous game. I guarantee that 100% of the time, you'll massively understeer at the first of the Lesmo turns. The lower downforce on the 2014 cars is really shown in the game, and credit to Codemasters for their execution of how different the handling has been this year. Additionally, as I stated above, Codemasters (or whoever holds the contract) is obliged to make a new game for the franchise EVERY year, no matter how much has changed within the sport, so you can't always expect a game that's drastically different to the previous installment.

-"There's no KERS"
Wrong again. What F1 2013 fans know as KERS, is now one half of the new ERS (Energy Recovery System) The KERS part is now known as MGU-K which draws energy under braking, and MGU-H draws energy from exhaust heat. While in 2013, the drivers could choose when to deploy their KERS energy, in 2014, from what I can tell, it's all controlled by the onboard ECU chip in the engine, which utilises the additional 33 seconds of increased horsepower as and when it needs to. So before you go moaning about the lack of deployable KERS, try watching an actual race and see if the drivers are even in control of their energy deployment.

-"The menus are exactly the same"
Yes... they are, but as the saying goes, if it isn't broke, don't fix it.

-"The Williams livery isn't right"
No, it isn't, this is because Codemasters were unable to secure the rights to use the Williams Martini livery, so they used the alternate livery from races where advertising alcohol is banned.

-"What happened to F1 Classics mode?"
This was asked on the official forums, and the response was "Because this year's cars are so drastically different in performance from the old cars, we have chosen not to include classics in F1 2014"

This is about all I can think of for now, but if I can think of anything more than just needs to be mentioned, then I'll be sure to edit the review (mainly after I start playing multiplayer more)

I am not sure what people's issues are with this. Yes, there are going to be a LOT of similarities to 2013, because as someone else pointed out, F1 is F1!

The difference in the car handling/sound etc from 2013 is very realistic. (Those complaining about the assistst, turn them OFF in the options!) (Those saying there are still assists present, where???) (Those complaining about traction control, well...TURN THAT OFF too!)

The physics & handling modeling are very good, I was just driving Monaco, started in damp/wet conditions on Inters and could "feel" the car improving as the track dried, and this transitioned upon chaning to Options. Oh, and love the random birds flying around, nice touch.

I do have a few complaints, mainly realism complaints...Where are the marshalls? Also, the cars seem quite tough, luckily for me haha, and I've failed to avoid someone elses debris a few times and not suffered a puncture, again luckily.

There are a number of things I hope have been added to 2015 though, more back game play, ability to "wander" round the paddock and have to endure the journalist's questions, "shaping" your drivers charecter and how they are viewed publicly, and privately by other drivers, a little more "politics" that translates onto the track instead of driving against a bunch of mindless opponents. Surely it can't be that difficult to factor in the drivers' style and approach to their AI counterparts?

The racing, so far, they have got pretty bang on...now time to expand the rest of the game :)

Edit: I've just seen a marshall! Hanging over the barrier at Monaco :)

hmm.. well there isnt much to report. It is exactly the same as 2013.. Literally nothing different except engine sound, 8 gears, and less traction to similate the new 2014 F1 cars... And a couple of new tracks, per the F1 season.

Other than that it is F1 2013.. Like, same everything, as if the files were not even touched. Just simply cut and pasted. No graphic updates, no new menu styles or colors, no new voices, just nothing..

Got halfway through 1st practice session at season opener Melbourne and turned it off.

a waste, unfortunately
