What's New in Version 1.0.1
• Resolves an issue with AMD graphics cards on OS X 10.8.3
Frustrating at times, but great nonetheless
I have an unsupported 2011 MBP with Intel HD3000 graphics, and the most problems I have are the occasional extreme brightness that makes it impossible to see. The best way to alleviate this is to make sure your camera is not looking at the back of the car. This really pops up during wet races, but dry ones are just fine. This might be discouraging to those who have no experience with Formula 1 racing, but it's making me a fan. You just have to stick with it, and I think you'll come to enjoy it. The easiest part of this game is the season challenge, which provides both quick races and access to all teams. If you want a really easy time at that, pick one of the following teams: Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren, Lotus, or Williams. Career mode might be discouraging because the races are very long, but that's fixable. Just go to the settings and adjust the race length to whichever one you want. Personally, I like having the one lap qualifying round in career mode, because it really makes things go much faster. Also, you only get six teams in career mode and their availibility is based on how well you did in the drivers test. If you got golds in every event then you can get the best team offerred. Though the price is high, I still recommend buying this game, because it is a lot of fun.
Hours of Fun Definitely
This game has insanely good graphics, and the load time is not that bad. You can progress right along in this game with no graphics lags, and controls are customizable and it definitely can lead to hours of fun and this kind of game is something that could get you a little flustered. However, I really do advise that you listen to the Engineer because he will tell you exactly like it is and that is really helpful in the overall game experience.
Beautiful Game but Idiotic Pit Crew
This game is great to look at and fun to play for awhile. It gets a bit repetitive.
Biggest complaint I have is that the pit crew has cost me a number of races by not using the correct tires for the weather. I just went from rain to dry and the crew kept putting rain tires on the car. Went from 1st place to last. This type of things has happened over and over. How hard is it to program the pit crew to know what the weather is doing???
The game is definitely overpriced for its entertainment value.
