    On a final note, in the unlikely event that Codemasters don't decide to do a yearly F1 game, and F1 2010 remains their only attempt at the sport, do you think it will have the same cult status as F1:CE? I don't think so.

    Bearing in mind Ardius posted that before f12010 was released.

    Pretty good summation, I'd say. I honestly rate this game slightly higher than F1 2010. The career mode has more depth, the engine sounds are epic, and like you said it's just a first rate gaming experience. I'm getting F1 2011 tomorrow, but F1 CE is a game that I will always keep as an F1 fan.

    Most underrated game ever? It's definitely high up the list, that's for sure.

    The engine sounds were great, but that's all there is to it. The handling was terrible. I don't see how anyone can say that F1CE is better, or even close to Codemasters' efforts. F1CE might be pretty to look at, but underneath the graphics and engine noises, was a very shallow arcade game. And don't get me started on that pitstop minigame.

    My opinion is based on the fact that I simply sent back my copy of F1 2011 unopened for a refund. You get the idea.

    It actually does not. I know it's a matter of opinion, but if you want shallow on rails arcade driving games, then stick to F1:CE. On the other hand, if you want a good representation of modern F1, but F1 2011. And if you want to buy the best F1 game of all time, then look up "Grand Prix Legends".

    Then in that case, your opinion is completely and utterly invalid.

    I also think that it kicks the crap out of F1 2010 (With those arcade Grid tweeked physics)

    After getting F1 2010 and playing for 1 month and a half I went back to F1 CE.

    Im still thinking of trying out F1 2011 though... because the career mode in F1 2010 was very good IMO better than F1 CE

    I absolutely love F1CE. Whether the physics are realistic or not was never an issue, I just loved the career mode.

    Set the game on Hard and you will be challenged! To be fast you need to push and being on the limit in this game pays if you get it wrong. You can easily be damaged, caught up in incidents.

    One of my best ever races on a console has been on F1CE. I was at Monaco doing half distance race in career mode (on hardest setting). I started second and was just keeping up with Schumacher all race. First pitstops came around and I just managed to jump him pitting one lap after him. He was on my arse the whole time, pressure stuff but I managed to keep the car off the walls! Second round of pitstops Schumacher jumped me but I was right on his tail and made a dive to overtake him. I then managed to keep the lead until the finish.

    Cannot say how much I love this game!! Definitely better than 2010 but 2011 is pretty good.

    I love this game. I went through my collection of f1 games (started at formula one '95 on psone) and F1 CE is tied with formula one '97 as the best F1 game ever.

    Graphicaly it is amazing. Wether the physics are realistic or not, it gives you a real sense of driving a F1 car. The immersion is fenomenal. Sound is great to, something the older games where really struggling with.

    My list of favorite F1 titels:

    1 Formula one '97 (psone)
    2 Formula One Championship Edition (ps3)
    3 Formula One (psone)
    4 Formula One 2001 (ps2)
    5 F1 2000 (psone)
    6 Formula One 2004 (Ps2)
    7 Formula One '99 (ps One)
    8 F1 2010
    9 Formula One '98 (psone)
    10 Formula one 2000 (psone)

    So how do you like Codemasters games in comparison? Didn't try or outside of top ten? :sly:

    At number 8 is F1 2010. 11 and 12 were a let down in my opinion. 10 wasn't perfect but it tried to do something new.

    And 3 years later nothing has changed. F1 CE still kick F1 2010 2011 2012 butt all day and night. They can't bloody compete. Arrived today after I finally picked up a week ago.

    Frame rate and graphics are so awesome, AI on hard is challanging, and the game make you pay your mistakes. Turn off damage and you'll see. If you miss breaking point and crash into someone else you'll loose front wing or front wheel and retire from the race. There is no replay/time machine Codemasters style. This increase immersion a lot if you make a mistake the RACE IS OVER. Great feeling! AI is not dumb like GT5.

    Turned off feedback because it was too spiky. With the option "feedback: no" there's still feedback but it's progressive no spiky. With my DFGT = instant love!!!

    Damn me what I was missing.

    Best racing game on PS3 period.

    Much respect Studio Liverpool.
