Product Details:

F1 2012 is designed to be the most accessible and immersive FORMULA ONE game for fans and racing game enthusiasts of all abilities. Players will feel the passion, speed and glory of the world's most glamorous sport with a host of new features, wide-ranging technical and gameplay advancements and extensive competitive and co-operative multiplayer components. Through the inclusion of the Young Driver Test, a range of tutorials will introduce new players to FORMULA ONE racing and explain how to handle motorsport's most exciting and responsive cars.

  • New USA Circuit for 2012. FORMULA ONE returns to the USA in 2012 at the all new Circuit of the Americas, located in Austin, Texas, and players can drive on the circuit ahead of the track's debut in November. The highly anticipated new 3.427 mile (5.515 km), 20 turn circuit includes dramatic elevation changes of up to 133 feet (40 metres) and takes inspiration from iconic corners at famous FORMULA ONE circuits, including Silverstone's Becketts and Istanbul Park's Turn 8. Expected to attract 120,000 fans on race day, the Circuit of the Americas will be a spectacular addition to the FORMULA ONE calendar and will be recreated in full high definition in F1 2012. F1 2012 will also feature all of the circuits from the expanded 2012 calendar, including the return of Germany's Hockenheimring.
  • Young Drivers Test. Gamers will be introduced to the world of FORMULA ONE and learn the nuances of how to drive a FORMULA ONE car by taking part in the all-new Young Drivers Test at Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina. Taking inspiration of the real world event where young drivers set out to earn a drive in FORMULA ONE, players will take to the wheel of a Red Bull, Ferrari or McLaren and will complete tutorials to learn how to get the best out of their car, including how and when to use KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) and DRS (Drag Reduction System).
  • Localised Weather. Codemasters' FORMULA ONE series has set the standard for weather in racing games and players will be able to experience new enhancements that will raise the bar further in F1 2012. Advances in the weather system will combine with the next evolution of F1 2012's Active Track Technology to produce localised rain showers on certain areas of the circuit. When one part of the track is wet while other areas are dry, the race will become more unpredictable and dramatic as players make game-changing strategy calls.
  • Lap Tutorials. F1 2012 will feature all-new lap walkthroughs from FORMULA ONE test driver and Codemasters technical consultant Anthony Davidson. Davidson will talk the player through a lap of each of the 20 circuits on the 2012 calendar, highlighting braking points, gearing and giving expert technical advice which will help players find extra speed on every lap.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You don't need to know F1 to play this game!! This game is incredible, the graphics, sound, and gameplay come together perfectly. You couldn't have asked for a better F1. Just because F1 is in the title, you can walk into this game blind, not knowing anything about F1. That's what I did, I just said to myself one day,"Hey, I want a racing sim, but I don't know which one." I had already gotten Forza Horizon and beat it 100 times. Then I found this game, and this game will change you. Because of this game, I actually watch F1 now, I live in the states, so that can be difficult but I do. I really do love the sport now, and the game makes it so I can race the race they have that weekend. Thanks, Codemasters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best console racer out there the game play is phenomenal it has a feel of a very hardcore sim with a noticeable arcade feel. it works both ways with this where one doesn't over power the other. nearly finished my first career season it has only benn about a month and a half this game is one i look forward to playing every night. codemasters did phenomenal with the dirt series this is great way to expand. if you loved dirt this is definitely for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! I love this game so far. This is not nearly as easy as most racing games, which is why I said for "hardcore" gamers, like myself who only play racing games. After the testing and a few trial races, I set it on full difficulty and took all training wheels off. This game will definitely test your skill level. Don't expect this to be a walk in the park, but once you have learned it a bit, the game is awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cars are more stable but less responsive I purchased F1 2011 last year and have loved the gaming experience and quality since. I started off with F1 2012 by downloading the demo which was an excellent introduction to the new version. The FIA made roughly 3 major rule changes from the 2011 to the 2012 season. 1.The nose was lowered 155mm for safety purposes. 2. Exhaust blow offs with diffusers were banned (teams were redirecting exhaust to produce better downforce). 3. Pirelli provided new tyre designs and introduced newer compounds. With such few changes you would assume that there was not much that would have differed from 2011's lineup of F1 Cars. The cars in the 2012 version appear to have lost a good portion of their response when cornering yet they are much more stable than in 2011. I've spent countless hours in simulation and have no idea what is causing this lack of response. I have attempted to resolve the problem by adjusting and utilizing various tuning setups, yet I still experience the cars' lack of response through the corners. I use the Mad Katz Forced Feedback wheel now for all my racing games. It's a blast compared to the controller and the stability is greater. Penalties are even worse now, however, neither Codemasters or Ego are at fault for the changes made by the FIA. Overall the game is great, however, if you are just starting out with the F1 expierence of games, I recommend getting a copy of F1 2011 first because there are less penalties, the cars corner, handle, and maneuver much smoother and faster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The F1 Game of 2012! ;) I have been playing a friends F12 on and off for a few days now, and after not playing a game in the series for some time I was quite happy with this one. My main gripe with these games generally is that, with the real thing being so extreme...the control and gameplay just don't translate very well. I feel the same way here and have accepted that, so asides from that F1 Enthusiast nitpicking...everything play wise is great. The sounds and graphics are beautiful and they did a good job modeling all the major track features. To have KERS and DRS to play with now just added a new layer to the game and is much appreciated. What I really enjoy, as will even the most novice race fan...is the career mode. It is strikingly well executed, (much like I saw from 2011 but even better) and everything seems to come together with a level of polish and presentation deserving of the pinnacle of motorsports. Serious race fan or F1 Nutcases most certainly should apply, amateurs will also find quality time in the career. Good game. Go Red Bull Racing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT RACING look i dont enjoy raceing mutch because well idk... but anyway it has coop and thats what i enjoy when i race because i like a wing man to help me but thats me its perfect for hardcore racers with full damage and all of the difficulty turned up or for people that just want to do a couple of quick laps on easy or something but its worth every penny.... just saying...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome 3 rounds of qualifying, KERs and DRS activation zones (within 1 second of car ahead) are some nice improvements over f1 2010. i cannot say anything bad about this game.
