Kids say (4 ):

F1 2010 has some of the most stunningly gorgeous racing visuals ever. The way water splashes off the road in a rainy-day race will blow you away. And the level of detail -- chats with your manager, regular vehicle maintenance, contract offers, etc. -- is incredibly impressive. All of this does make the game way more complicated than your average racing game, though. And for many casual players, F1 2010 will simply be too much. However, hardcore fans or gamers looking for more of a career sim than just a quick race will relish the deep and full experience they'll get here.

Online interaction: This game supports open voice chat while playing online. Common Sense Media does not recommend moderation-free online communication for pre-teens. We suggest using the parental controls built into the game console to disable onlinecommunication features.
