Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

F1 2014 feels more like a refinement of previous F1 games than something truly new. Its faithful recreation of the sport's events and atmosphere is likely to hold few surprises for most players. Even the incorporation of changes to F1 regulations won't be noticeable to most players who aren't intimately acquainted with previous F1 games or the real-world sport.

Still, the racing mechanics are solid. Cars handle well (especially if you're good enough to play with most of the aids switched off). Plus, the sense of speed -- especially from lower camera angles -- is terrific. Even rookies can get into this one, thanks to a new Very Easy mode that comes with some very generous driving assists. Switch on automatic braking, for example, and all you really need to do is keep your trigger finger on the gas and steer to avoid fellow competitors and navigate turns. F1 2014 may not revolutionize F1 racing games, but fans of the sport should be fairly entertained.
