Get this game on a big screen and its better than RL. Well, at least you don't die when you crash out and that's got to be worth the price of the game. Come as close as you ever can to date, without actually getting into a real F1 car! This is not just another F1 sim, this is something special!

In F1 2010, the best aspects of the game realism in this simulation, are the track conditions due to weather effects. The weather effect is dynamic to the car handling, when driving in the dry or wet and even partially damp variations. There are even wet and dry parts to the track during any one lap, just like in real-life. The ultimate effect is where you have a dynamic track surface that gets dryer with each passing car, and players / drivers, can even seek out puddles to cool their tyres!

Three main areas are:
1, The visual effects. In the dry you may get a heat haze, or in the wet you may get reflections from puddles, (with sunlight), or darkness under heavy clouds or heavy rain, and spray on the car and camera and spray that is kicked up from the tyres to form plooms of mist and spray.

2, Then there is how these visual effects tie in to the car handling and track dynamics. Slippery or grippy track surface etc. The track actually knows how wet it is, it is not just one simple dynamic applied to the whole track, so that everyone gets the same grip as usual in F1 racing games; and that is because this is more of a Sim, a simulation - as in real life simulation!

Like, if you are 10th down a straight, on the racing line, running wets behind 9 other cars, who are also on the racing line, your grip on your bit of track will have decreasingly less wetness to each car in front. This is just like in the real world, (not how it has usually been programmed into previous racing games that are not true Racing SIMS). This 'drying-track' dynamic, will be especially useful in online multi-player modes and add yet more realism.

3, The effect of the weather will impact more on the race out-come, and on the whole race season as it changes over time. Especially, this is important if you are playing multi-player online with other regular F1 2010 gamers!

F1 2010 on the xBox, PS3 and PC. 
(2010 PC version- not always available).
Its as real as it gets! For most of us, who cannot afford the time or the money to have a go in an F1 car, (let alone actually take part in an F1 race), a new F1 Racing Simulation game from CodeMasters, for the xBox and PS3 consoles, (and a PC version in development), shows us the splendor of Formula One through simulation racing! By far the best Formula 1 Sim yet, (my version now on pre-order through Amazon will be on xBox).
F1 2010 is a racing simulation second only to the multimillion pound training simulations some of the F1 teams use!

You'd better believe it! I know I am a 'chicken', as hardened F1 fans would say, as they brave the sun and sleeting rain, or the expense of attending race sessions and race day! (I prefer to call my chickening-out being race-smart)!
I love the comfort of watching the race sessions at home, online or on my large screen TV!
Here's the good points:-

I can take a leak when I want, (or other)! Without standing in a que for a stinking toilet. (and be missing the race)!
I can see ALL OF THE RACE! - Not just get a glimpse of a car whizzing by at 200mph in a cloud of mist-spray and rain, that's if I can see at all through the plethora of massive F1 brollies!

I don't get wet, or sunburned (or loose an eye to a brolly stem), and my food is the same quality and price! (Hint)! And there's no-one blowing a whistle in my ear, like a demented football fan on world-cup day!

Oh - and then there's my nice comfy seat! - One year I'd paid over 300 GBP to get in, the stand I paid for was supposed to have seating; -It didn't!

It was Spain! - I was truly a grassy-arse amigo! Never again!
Any-who, from September, I'll be plugging in my force-feed-back wheel and chasing round the Formula One 2010 circuits myself on my xBox.
Which is yet another reason to stay home and watch AND PLAY in the comfort of your own home! That's me and that's where I'll be!


This short video (below), is a bit choppy and grainy, but it is only down to the YouTube video and nothing to do with the final game graphics, which are nothing short of excellent.
The main point is to listen to the audio commentary.

This video (below) gives a better representation of the graphic look, but I think the cars are from the F1 2009 edition. F1 2010, will have all the 2010 cars and updated livery and so on each year etc. But, Codemasters cannot produce the current years F1 simulation until they can see the cars and tracks, and that is why we cannot get the current years game at the start of the F1 season.

My final video offering, is a looooong one, but by far the best review and pre-release interview yet. Click the play button now then pause it, so that this long video can be downloading the stream whilst I tell you about the video.

You will have to get past the buggy-mod racing section that starts after the intro (if like me you are not interested in buggy racing). You should watch the first 2 minutes of the intro though, because it has news of what is coming up in the show, then you need to skip to 8 minutes 15 seconds. My computer is a bit slow, and I had to play the video a little, then pause it for a few minutes to get the stream to download ahead of the playing point of this long video to make it run smoothly. It will be well worth it, I assure you.
