    Which is the best F1 game so far?

    I've only really played 3 of them to be honest.  The first was F1 06 for the PSP, I absolutely loved that game. Put on all assists, full race lenghts and easiest difficulty. I never minded the lack of challenge, I just loved the driving. F1 06 was a very complete game, with telemetry and the process of joining a team (completing a challenge in their car) and being able to become their third driver (test driver). Also the podium celebrations and the fact that you could actually see your trophies was amazing. This game also contained some amazing classic cars, dating back all the way to the 60's. I also owned this game on the PS2, but didn't play it as much on that platform. I remember drooling over the CE for ps3 (which was considered next gen back then). My second is F1 2012. I bought that game along with a x360 gamepad for my PC. I learned how to properly play racing games on this game, spending hours of time trial in Albert Park, mastering the braking and traction control (I enabled TC after a while, without is pretty tough :neutral_face: ). I never actually completed a season in that game, no idea why.  Finally, I also bought F1 2013 after being convinced during a free weekend on steam. The handling really felt so much better. I managed to drive a full season in that game (with Williams, and then moved to Ferrari), but after a while, I noticed that the game was actually not as much fun as F1 2012, since the tyre management system was very unbalanced in my opinion. If I had to pick a best, it would be F1 2012 due to it's gameplay, but 06 is a very close second, due to the content.

    Unlimited flashback. yes or no?

    great comments everybody! Once I'm back home (I'm on an amazing road trip through Germany right now :) ), I'll try my hand at a 100% race in F1 2012 or 2013. I have noticed some kind of regeneration system on the 25% races (when I make a mistake after an 8 lap streak), so maybe this will also help me through the 100% races. it's great to see that a lot of people ( even the hardcore racers among you) agree that there should be an option for unlimited flashbacks. Now just wait and hope that @Hatta picks up on this thread and is able to comment on whether we'll see this in F1 2014

    Unlimited flashback. yes or no?

    as mentioned, I can still run 25% races with 4 flashbacks, which means I make maybe 4 mistakes in 20 minutes, sometimes even less. I always drive the full fp and make the most out of qualy. I wouldn't consider myself a lunatic or go as far as saying that I don't want to learn (or intend to ruin the series). If the game would offer unlimited flashbacks, and I'd run 100% races, I won't change my approach or driving style. But I'll be able to run the full races. Like I said, I don't consider making 4 mistakes in 20 minutes ' bad driving'. Maybe, in 100% races, I only rewind 10 times or so. But since that option isn't available, I can't do this. That's the only reason why I want this option. And how would one simple option ruin the game?  Wouldn't this just encourage players to disable more and more assists, and learn how to drive without brake assist, ABS and even TC? When I first started F1 2012, I never played a reaching game without brake assist. Now I do without BA and ABS (only make up to 4 errors in 25% races). if CM won't add this, I guess I'll download some mods on F1 2013, and keep playing that jewel.
  4. This is really the only question I'd like answered. I really enjoy this in Grid: Autosport (I'm tend to make a lot of mistakes, this enabled me to enjoy the 5x races without getting annoyed by stupid small mistakes) the previous titles had a max of 4 flashbacks, and therefore I can only race 25% distance in those games, but I'd really like to race 100% races. If 2014 offers this: Insta-buy!. If it doesn't I see no reason to buy this game.
  5. Absolutely love it! I think you sound a bit like Leslie Nielsen in his better movies :smiley: 
  6. @Hatta , I love the unlimited flashbacks in G:AS, since I'm not the best racing driver (I make quite a lot of mistakes), but I do enjoy long races. My question is: will F1 2014 also have an option for unlimited flashbacks? In the 2012 and 2013 games I played the 25% distance, because I made too many mistakes to be able to races a longer distance without using all my flashbacks. Also, the tyre management system of F1 2013 was pretty bad, since the AI wasn't bothered by this, and this really ruined the idea of strategic racing to me. Is this fixed in 2014? And if yes, how? By decreasing the impact of tyre management, or ensuring that the AI has to deal with the same problems as you? I think the Endurance mode of G:AS did this very well; you noticed that the drivers who kept pushing really struggled near the end of the race. P.S.: if somebody else knows the answers to my questions, please respond :smile:

    Grid Autosport Open Wheel vs F1 2013

    Although I love F1 2013 for what it is (graphics are a bit better too), I think the whole tyre management aspect of the game ruined the actual fun of racing for me. Especially since the AI is never too bothered by the tyre wear. In GAS, the open wheel class is all about direct, wheel to wheel races, and I'm loving it!.Also, because of the unlimited flashbacks, I can play longer races (I tend to make quite a few mistakes from time to time  :# .

    British car pack

    Oscar97 said: You can only use them in custom cups I think. This is still not clear to me. @Loore , can you please shed some light on this? If it is integrated in the SP (and for example, you can drive in F1 GTR when driving an endurance championship with Ravenwest), or is it custom cup only? If it's the first, I'll purchase the pack, if it's that latter, I will not.

    The expansion packs will be for the career mode. I know, really looking forward to them. I hope they're better DLC than what we've seen so far

    The extra garage slots come with the season pass if I'm not mistaken

    British car pack

    I'm wondering why CM chose for these cars, and call this pack the 'Best of British Car Pack'.  The McLaren F1 (one of the best hypercar in the world, no doubt) has a V12 BMW engine (which is German), the Aston V12 Zagato was designed by Zagato, which are Italians, and the SLR is partially German (even sports the Mercedes badge...). Aren't there any Jags or Astons or Bentleys or such that are actually 'British'? P.S.: The 3 cars are beautiful and amazing, without a doubt, but still...

    Would give it 100 if the dlc packs would also be included in the Carreer (only mode I play, so the car packs are pretty useless in my opinion as long as you can only play with them in Custom Cup or online...)

    @Loore , this is one of the packs that isn't in carreer mode, right? BTW, it isn't available on Steam yet :/
