    The closest any racer has come to completely simulating its target sport. [Nov 2018, p.94]

    Quite how Codemasters has managed to top last year's incredible effort is quite beyond me, but F1 2018 manages to eclipse F1 2017, delivering an even more definitive and just as essential Formula One game that fans will 'lap' up. Get it bought.

    A complete, positive and visually very good experience. One of the best F1 games.

    If you are a fan of Formula One, F1 2018 is a game you can’t pass up. It can feel a little bit continuist with some technical flaws that are recurrent, but its new options in Career Mode and its multiplayer will make you feel the passion of the real Formula One Circus.

    F1 2018 features the finest handling and force feedback for a dedicated F1 game to date, some welcome visual improvements, and a career mode that does a better job than ever at capturing the nuances of the world’s most-popular motorsport.

    F1 2018, just as with last year's game, is a game worthy of your attention and something fans of the franchise will love. It's stunning to look at, excellent fun to drive in, and the single-player mode has more than enough depth to keep keener players entertained.

    Avid players of F1 2017 would be wise to wait until the inevitable F1 2019 – unless they really must engage in some multiple choice PR interviews between races right now.

    The presentation side of the game is absolutely fantastic because both the visuals and sound design create a very realistic F1 experience.The presentation side of the game is absolutely fantastic because both the visuals and sound design create a very realistic F1 experience. There's a lot of content for you to get to grips with and fans of the series will no doubt be satisfied for a long time to come. I really enjoyed the improvements that have been made in this year’s game because both the racing and handling feel more tight and stable this time around. The career mode is without a doubt the best the series has delivered so far and I was very impressed with the level of detail that’s been included in this mode. This game is accessible to all gamers because the assist and difficulty options means gamers of all skill levels can enjoy the game.
    I enjoyed the online components of the game more this year because they’ve catered to my needs much more this time around.The media interactions are a nice little touch there just isn’t enough variety in them so they do end up becoming quite repetetive and tedious after a short while. Does F1 2018 do enough to get a recommendation from me? Last year’s F1 game was without a doubt my favourite game of the series so far and I was hoping that F1 2018 would build on the momentum that was built from F1 2017, and thankfully I’m pleased to say that this year’s game has built on the momentum and then some. In fact F1 2018 is now probably my most favourite game of the series so far and that’s mainly because its made improvements again. The career mode is absolutely fantastic and it has a depth to it that we’ve never experienced before. You’ll be pleased to know then that the racing that accompanies the career mode and every other mode feels better than ever and this does make the racing feel even more rewarding. As far as problems go the game doesn’t really have any and when it’s all said and done if you’re looking for an F1 game that gets as close to the real thing as can be then I thoroughly recommend that you make a purchase of F1 2018.

    I see a progress from 2017, but it still can't recommend anybody to buy it.
    Improved graphics can't improve enough the most buggy racing game
    I see a progress from 2017, but it still can't recommend anybody to buy it.
    Improved graphics can't improve enough the most buggy racing game on the market as release was rushed as every season. Old bugs are not fixed and new added, from experience from last 4 years, we can't count with fixes. Multiplayer is still a garbage and nothing improved with the new driver license as drivers are penalized for being hit by others or pushed off the track.
    Even singleplayer lost the main reason to play in longterm as you can negotiate with top tier teams after few races and they will accept you, so after 4 horrible races in Williams you are gladly accepted to Mercedes. Safety car is broken since it was added to the game years ago.
    AI is blindly stupid and hit you in every occasion.
