With superb, customisable handling and insane attention to detail, F1 2018 is the ultimate representation of Formula One racing, that almost anyone can play.
F1 2018 continues on the good road set by the predecessors. The gameplay is the typical one, friendly for newcomers and complex for hardcore players. There are some problems with the AI, but not enough to stop a F1 fan from buying the game.
F1 2017 was great and we didn’t expect much more with F1 2018. And we were wrong. Driving is more demanding, Career mode gets richier and visuals are finally on the same page. This is greatness.
It is without a doubt the best F1 game yet. Whether or not to purchase it if you own the previous versions will be up to you. For gamers new to the world of F1 racing it's a no-brainer to go with the latest and greatest version, although there are probably enough changes under the hood here to justify an upgrade from F1 2017 for returning fans.
Across the board, F1 2018 is just a little bit flashier, a little bit deeper and a little bit better optimized than its 2017 sibling.
Polished on many aspects that were defects, this F1 2018 is an excellent vintage to justify its purchase even for those who own the previous version. The new regulations are also numerous and it is essential to follow the movement to stick to reality. With its driving combining both sensations and racing strategy, F1 2018 brings an unusual depth in car games. Fans of formula one, go for it. For others, you will learn a lot about discipline if you decide to give it a try.
Following a series high last year, F1 2018’s welcome additions don’t add up to a meaningfully fresh experience.
