Each year Codemasters releases a new F1 game, and this year is no different, but what can we expect this time from the developer? We ask this because we have seen time and again a new version of the game gets released, only for it to be very similar to the outgoing version. However, we cannot blame Codemasters too much because the lack of rival F1 games is the cause of the problem.
Looking over a F1 2013 game review or two has shown this to be a minimal upgrade from the 2012 version, although you should not let that put you off because it is still a great game. It will be nice for you to take control of a 2013 spec F1 car and make certain someone else wins for a change.
It has certainly been painful to watch, especially as I’m an avid McLaren fan — oh well, there is always the 2014 season to look forward to. Anyway, back to the game.
There is a lot to look forward to in F1 2013, such as taking a trip down memory lane thanks to the nostalgic challenge, Scenario mode allowing you to compete in shorter challenges, all-new track action and improved sound. However, if you can only afford F1 2013 Standard Edition, then there is a limited number of tracks and classic cars, meaning to get the most from the game you will need to purchase the Classic Edition.
GameSpot has reviewed the game and has given F1 2013 a review score of 8 out of 10 and although they like this latest version, they are excited with the prospect of F1 2014 because of the technical changes that will happen in the sport.
VideoGamer has said the franchise is in desperate need of competition in order for it to move forward, and we have to agree. They have also given the game an 8 out of 10 saying it is packed with content and has a superb soundtrack, although the changes are minimal and the Career mode is in desperate need of a revamp.
Would you agree with these findings?
