    I was going to say that it was quite hard to finish stage but TheScrutineer beat me to it. Such a tough game.

    I thought Dirt had a pretty good feel to it after a few tweaks.

    I find F1 games are good but get a bit samey, too much grip and downforce makes for failry boring driving. Lairiness all the way!

    Driven to madness via cabin fever I lost my mind and got this game.

    I'm not a Codemasters fan and I hate their navigation....but I gotta tell ya...I'm impressed.

    Well...after the headache of discovering that after the 1.1 patch was applied it totally screwed Eyefinity/triple monitor resolution. Before patch it was perfect. Roll Eyes

    After searching found a workaround for that but the remedy includes forcing the game to DX9.

    Dunno if the eye can really tell, graphics look killer and runs smooth at 5040x1050.

    As for driving/racing... it is what it is for the masses and not much to complain about.

    Has great immersion/fun factor... and it's a good sim to break away from serious racing.

    The rain racing is just nutz.

    F1 Championship Edition is far better

    I am a big codemasters fan, but F1 2010 is quite a let down.
    If you go back to the last PS3 entry, F1 Championship Edition, you will see that a lot of things have gone wrong with the new one.
    It's a game, games are great when they are realistic, but when one becomes too realistic it is ruined. Too realistic, too dramatic, they should have made a GAME, not a SIM, that spoils everything. Honestly, my fave F1 game is F1 1997 for PS1, epic.

    Perhaps I'm just not a sim fan but I really don't see why you should bother with this game.

    THIS IS AN EDIT

    My biggest issue is the over-realistic penalties, anything wrong and youre in serious trouble. after your first 10 laps of qualifying get discounted because of cutting a corner you didn't know existed, patience starts to wear thin. My other big issue is exactly the same as derekthetree, F1 games are good, but it's now a case of, played one, played em all. I played this a bit with a mate the day it came out, but we hated it so much we brought it back and got NBA 2K11, and Red Dead Redemption
    .

    hi snake bacon You can edit your posts using the Edit button at the bottom right !
    You can also delete them through the same route, so you can clear out the first one.

    Made me smile as I dont like F1 2010 as it's handling is not ideal and is not a very good SIMULATION and has much more of the feel of a game. In a race game if you cut corners you get black flagged by the marshal. Simulator race releases can definately look/feel the same but underneath the car dynamics are different, the handling, the power delivery, the aero package, the fuel usage and the adjustments available. But, these are all things a serious sim-racer will see as a BIG difference and I concur with you as a "game" it's a so-so

    For me it's like FPS. eg your Red Dead Redemption trade. I dont see any real difference between any of the shooting "games". From Wolfenstien, Doom, Tribes, Half-Life and all its mods all the wauy to CoD, Halo and I'm running the World of Tanks beta atm. To me they are all the "same " jsut with different images and guns. BUT, I know many who enjoy the differences and improvements.

    So I understand your feel of frustration with F1 2010, but it's for those reasons many will like it BTW, do you use a wheel ? Many of the race sims really only demonstrate their differences with a decent FF wheel and pedal set.

    But interesting to read your comments on the game !!
