For what it is, its a really good first effort for CM. I cannot say whether it handles like an F1 car and neither can those who complain its too arcadey. Sure enough, I can imagine this game isn't a total simulation, but it doesnt try to be. Considering so many that play this game will use a standard PS3 controller, the handling suits the majority who will play it. I for one will never shell out a further 200-300 quid just so I can play a GAME!. Naturally, even after the patch, things are just not right. Fuel simulation doesnt work, inconsistant AI (tracks are much easier than others), R&D is simple to say the least and a few other bugs still lurking, but as a base package, F1 2010 works and will still provide a lot of enjoyment until F1 2011 is released. You feel more involved in F1 with this game than any other F1 game before seeing you team around you as you sit in the pits before practice, qualifying or the race. The weather system is the best yet in an F1 game with forecasts, differing levels of grip when its starts to rain and how that ties in with the visual effects. Can still be improved on as you can stray off the drying racing line and keep the same level of grip. Definitely worth getting as a good warm-up to F1 2011.
