Putting the various bugs/issues online and offline aside for a second, as impossible it actually is xD, I really hope Codemasters do a better job on the engine sounds as well this year.
Watching the onboard highlights of the IRL Bahrain Grand Prix (video at the bottom) and listening to these sick scratching engine sounds, the downshifts of the Mercedes as well as the Honda lifts are, for me at least, an instant "turn on" to play the game. Unfortunately, the ingame sounds are even very far away from their own respective year/season, becoming an instant "turn off" again. Yet, other racing games such as "Assetto Corsa" and some rFactor mods seem to have almost nailed the sounds of the 2017 season.
If a community manager could tell us if that is being looked into for this years game, that would be very nice.
What do you guys think?
Do you think it is impossible for Codemasters to get the engine sounds right or do you still have hope?
I personally cannot take another year of the F1 2016/17 "vacuum-cleaner-style" engine sounds set, seeing that the engines IRL develope a more aggressive scratching and growling sounds with each season.
