F1 2012 is one of the best racing games I've played in a long time simply because it offers what most racers lack, A CHALLENGE. If you're one of those people who rage if you don't win a race or have to crash everyone to win, then you shouldn't be playing racing games. Codemasters did such a great job on fine tuning this game it's unreal. The cars are tricky to get a hold of because they're very sensitive. They will steps out very easy on you so be prepared to correct.The career mode is the same well layed out career we've seen before but with much more engaging AI. The graphics are great, the cars look great and the backgrounds are absolutely beautiful. This game is hard but it keeps you coming back because it makes you think, "I can beat them at the next track" if you practice and tune your car enough this is one of the best racing simulators of all time.

I have played previous Formula 1 games in the past. This addition to the series is by far the best. It's not too easy, but not too hard. The career mode is engaging. I find myself saying one more race three or more races in a row. There are also other game modes that throw you into different scenarios. Like one where you are in the lead with option tyres on when it starts pouring down rain, the challenge is to finish the last 5 or so laps of the race on slick tyres without letting your teammate who has intermediate wets on beat you. These challenges give a whole new depth into the racing experience. All of this goes with the outstanding graphics and sound. With these two combined it makes the game feel so real, as if you are strapped into the 750 hp car blasting around the worlds best race tracks. I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who is a veteran to the F1 series or even new comers. This game will have you hooked from the beginning.
this game is awesome. it is really hard but you can set it up to be so easy its rediculess[sp]. people who just want to bump and win are not TRUE racers. you need a steering wheel to truly realize the greatness this game is. Codemasters are briliant at capturing the true nature of racing. if you dont like this game then you just dont understand it at all !!!!!!!!!!
