BE THE DRIVER....LIVE THE LIFE

Experience the exclusive world of FORMULA ONE™ like never before.

Discover what it’s like to sit behind the wheel of the world’s greatest cars as you race wheel to wheel on all 19 circuits from the 2010 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ calendar, beautifully realised and in full HD.

Prove yourself worthy of being the team’s number 1 and gain the ability to direct the development of your car. Work with your Race Engineer to customise a huge range of vehicle variables and eek every last ounce of performance from the car, or leave the detailed decisions to your experienced support team and head straight out onto track.

Master the iconic twisting streets of Monaco, thrill at the high speed of Monza, and overcome the challenge of a floodlit night-race at Singapore to beat your rivals and take the FORMULA ONE crown in one of the most beautiful and involving racing games to date.

Make your own career choices; starting at the bottom and working your way up the ranks, or stick with your favourite team and lead them to glory. Impress other teams by beating legendary drivers such as Schumacher, Hamilton, Button and Alonso. Interact with the media to raise your profile and press your point home, then negotiate contracts with new teams via your Agent.

Absolutely fun game once you get into it. The game is perfect but thanks to the choice to use secuROM and Games For Windows Live, it can cause stress and anger and frustration. What I have learnt is that secuROM will fail if GFWL fails. secuROM can be dealt with on it's own by a crack but GFWL MUST work otherwise the whole thing fails. At least for me it does. Also GFWL seems to fail from MS's end and NOT the player's end. Here's hoping Codemasters replaces GFWL soon!

EDIT: Try reinstalling GFWL if it appears to be failing, found out that it'll install and say it completed with no issues but really it failed to install correctly. The Game is perfect, just GFWL and secuROM that suck!

Probably The best f1 game among all the f1 games released by codemasters , here are the reasons why
- The last game in f1 to be based on racing purely, its mainly based on throttle , breaks and gears no crappy KERS and DRS (proper fights btw racers and simple controls no need to worry about kers and drs stuff focus on racing)
- The season where shumi returns from his retirement
- Apart from f1 2011 , the last second game to support dx9
- The car controls good , f1 2011 was garbage with a terrible view point and f1 2012 was too arcade control but 2010 does it good throw the car around a turn and the car turns as you expect it to do no seconds.
- Simple yet nice single player mode aka start from your team trailer , finish the race do a interview and get back.
- no online pass no crappy dlc
- great modding capability

However the game is not without its flaws
- forced 10% race in story mode , later games allow you to change this but here since its 10% doing 7 seasons is going to take a long time
- Crappy upgrades , some of them make no difference at all
- lack of information during racing , the engineer is limited to a few words , makes no sense at times.
- BUGS , there are a lot of em including faked ai times in qualifying , broken pit,ignorant ai, sector 3 time not shown etc
- GFWL :X It even fails to download the only update the game has , so in case gfwl dies or fails to update get the update from codemasters instead

Its still worth a purchase probably the most easiest f1 game for newcomers to get into.

Honestly, this is the best Codies F1 game. Controls are a bit stiff and could have been better but you get used to it. If only modern F1 games had the live the life aspect from this game as well. 9.5/10
