In a market where racing games are drifting towards arcade style racing, Codemasters brings us one of the best racing sims to hit consoles. While it can take a little bit of time to get used to, the race cars feel pretty perfect and with a wide range of assists to turn on/off you'll be able to hit your sweet spot with regards to feel. There is a pretty extensive list of things to tune and weather effects will have you swapping out different tire types race to race and even having changing weather conditions during laps. There can be problems with penalties and warnings that will make you scratch your head, but they consist of only one part of an otherwise great game.
If you're looking for more simulation racing than arcade style for consoles, F1 2012 is the game to get.
