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.
