Very Good

Got the wheel? This becomes VERY real!

What a GREAT game! I've got the Logitech G27 and LOVE how this game plays! You really have to dig in and DRIVE the cars. Watch your turns...Feather the gas...Really FEEL how each car responds. The key for me was adjusting the controls and the sensitivity on wheel feedback and slightly increasing the gas pedal. It's a challenge for sure but after a few restarts you'll have the feel of the car and have enough familiarity with the track to really give the podium a shot. I truly enjoyed the concept of the game. You get your shot to start in racing at the beginning...When Ferrari does! You race the first race they ever raced and every one after!! Tons of race content in the campaign plus unlockables and open racing with arcade mode. I truly don't understand why this game isn't rated higher. I give it a strong 8.

For the Love of Ferrari

I found the career mode to have some rather glitchy and odd behaviors. The opponent AI is rather crude and oftentimes rigidly choreographed. The handling of the vehicles is of an arcade feel, but does reward a clean line and proper throttle control. I would have liked to have some tuning allowed to the vehicles.
On the positive end of the spectrum, the lineup and diversity of Ferraris here is impressive. I also enjoyed the various evolutions of the Silverstone circuit presented; especially the earliest versions with a Woodcote to make your neck hairs stand up. Drifting through the original Tamburello in a Quattrovalvole was a treat.
In general I found the career mode somewhat tedious and at its worst would leave you stranded. This title could benefit from DLC to unlock some of the storyline's stumbling blocks.

The campaign is basically the normal unlock the next class of cars as you finish each race in the top positions. The overall presentation of the game feels like they didn't put much into it, but the actual gameplay was not bad. You will be able to drive the vintage cars all the way up to the latest models. If you have a wheel, then definitely give this game a go and of course if you are a super car fan (especially the Ferrari lovers out there).
