 Potential, but still flawed

| | See all F1TMcom's reviews (1)

Ive written this review using the Xbox360 version, these are my initial experiences and thoughts on F1 2011.

New Toys:
Virgin dont have KERS so havent yet used that, but they do have DRS which is a fun little toy. Open the wing too soon on a corner and your off in to a barrier or a spin Equally if you open it too soon your car can start sliding out at the back, which revs the engine and loses you speed. Seems realistic so far. Would have been nice to have the option to press and hold a button, at the moment you press once to once, press again to close (or just hit the brakes, it closes automatically).

Tyres:
They have been redesigned to now have an outer surface rating (1.0 for soft, 0.4 for hard) which is for your 1-2 laps in qualifying, so the super quick laps, then a further 9.0 for driving on race day. Seems to work well, I can easily tell the difference between soft and hard tyres, the wear levels are better than F1 2010, but I havent experienced the "drop off a cliff" effect they are supposed to have. At least not yet, on a 12 lap race I ran with softs for 5 laps, which they managed with ease.

Live the Life:
Just as boring as F1 2010. Different people asking the questions, but the same old questions and answers have come up so far. Ive just for instance, in a virgin, in season 1, been asked if I will be in the chase for winning the title this season. Sigh. There are movie scenes congratulating mechanics after the race, I was bored after seeing it the 2nd time.

Dry and Wet:
In the dry, the car feels better then F1 2010, the suspension has been worked differently and spins can now be prevented, no more random spins on slow corners.
The wet track has been greatly improved, you have to be very careful to avoid spins, and thats with ABS and full traction control on. I didnt manage a single lap without at least one spin.

Good Points:
The telemetry screen shows all sectors.
Pit stops, there are no delays

Graphics still look excellent
More music to listen to
Additional customisation options
The racing interface, cleaner and easier
Better loading screens, showing random facts about your career so far
Mini map, displays a colour for if your sector is red/green/purple on the time sheets
The fuel mixture is a great little toy to change throughout the race - I feel like a real F1 driver constantly fiddling away at the steering wheel /controller

Starts:
Hold full throttle, boom lights are green, sit there, sit there, sit there, turn 1. Would be nice to set clutch levels or at least have an idea what kind of revs to maintain for a good start.
Bugs:
You get emails to read, but cant scroll down when reading them.
I have raced with 3 difficulty settings, Intermediate, Professional and Legendary. With Legendary I was seconds behind everyone, with Professional I was qualifying top 10 and finishing top 5 in the race, in a Virgin Racing car. With most assists on - these should be slowing me down (although avoiding me from spins etc).
The damage system is unrealistic, same as F1 2010
In Qualifying, cars dont move out of my way until Im on top of them, at which point it is too late.
I did an entire race on 1 set of intermediate tyres, no drying line ever came up, the tracks grip remained constant and predictable.

Summary:
This game is an improvement over F1 2010 certainly, but has not met my expectations. It seems to have 2 modes - way too easy, or way too hard. I can certainly see the potential, but the levels of difficulty need a major re-balance.

 here to help!

too all having problems with f1,
on your emails press (A) xbox or (X) ps3 to read them and then scroll down .

tyre drop off make sure you have tyre settings on and then on a race use the option tyre the soft tyre can last upto 20 laps just like in real life

if you find it too easy or too hard use custom settings to change the abs or traction control the a.i the rules, tyres , fuel. hopefully that will help you all

f1 2011 is much better than the 1st but in all a great race game one of the best i have played and in a world of its own as other race games are road cars such a forza or most cars on gran turismo 5.
and if you watch f1 then its a must buy!

 Best F1 game so far!

F1 2011 is everything I was hoping F1 2010 would be. It's slicker, quicker, and extremely playable. But, most of all, it is a lot of FUN! Races are a joy, rather than last years effort where the racing was twitchy and, at times, scary and hard work. Some say it has lost some realism in exchange for playability, but as I am not a professional Formula One driver I don't have a problem with that! After all, Call of Duty is not a realistic portrayal of war, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable to play.
F1 2011 is not just the best F1 game around, it is also one of the best racing games around.

 F1 2011 = Stunning

Didnt think that they would be able to beat last years title but they actually have. They've definely taken if its not broke why fix it approach but with tweeks to make the game better. The AI is vastly improved and the addtion of KERs and DRS makes the racing much more involved. Ive only had a few races but i love this already.. Great Stuff :)

Featuring up to date teams, drivers and rules Formula One 2011 is a must buy for fans of Formula One or even those just after a more realistic racing simulation. The usual quick race, time trial and career modes are all present whilst online multiplayer allows for up to two people to team up over the course of a season, great fun despite the odd bug here and there.
