Realistic racing simulation is oddly shallow.

How much you'll enjoy F1 2015 really depends on what kind of racing games you're into. If you're a fan of Mario Kart, Need for Speed, or really any arcade-like driving game, you'll find this to be too complicated and overly sensitive. That's especially true when your car comes to a stop in the middle of a race because you didn’t realize you had to refill the gas tank when that red-gas-pump-looking light started flashing. But if you're more into racing simulations such as Gran Turismo, you'll probably find this lacking. That's because, unlike previous installments of this series -- and basically every racing game -- F1 2015 doesn't have a proper career mode, which is what most people play in racing games along with the online modes. Sure, you can race your way through the events of the 2015 Formula One season in the Championship mode, but this doesn't have a mode where you go through any kind of personal or professional progression. The overall effect is that F1 2015 should've been deeper and feels like a shadow of other racers on the market.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
