For the first time, players can create their own F1® team by creating a driver, then choosing a sponsor, an engine supplier, hiring a teammate and competing as the 11th team on the grid. Build facilities, develop the team over time and drive to the top. Customise your 10-year career mode, with a choice of F2™ Championship introduction options and season lengths to allow for a more exciting, multiple season, career.
The addition of split-screen racing, a new steering assist and a more accessible race experience means that you can enjoy the game with friends, no matter what your skill level. F1® 2020 features all the official teams, drivers and 22 circuits, including two new races: Hanoi Circuit and Circuit Zandvoort. Online connection required to download the final teams’ 2020 cars (as applicable) and F2™ 2020 season content.
It took a console generation, but with Playstation 4 and Xbox One on their last leg, Codemaster does pretty much everything right with F1 2020. Last year's excellent version has been expanded with a greatly improved career mode where, in addition to driving, we also get to control our own team in detail. Outside of the that addition however, much is the same as F1 2019. If you do not care about a career mode or updated drivers and teams, you will be fine with last year's version. For F1 fans, however, F1 2020 is in many ways a perfect racing experience.
F1 2020 is the highest point of the series. What Codemasters shows with this game is that they also understood that they have a game on their hands and that it isn't wrong to make it more fun; that the rules can be slightly bent in pursuit of a more inclusive and more content product, without neglecting its essence.
Codemasters has delivered a masterful racing experience with F1 2020. Despite the heavy jargon-filled opening, there are plenty of helpful tutorials that break down everything to make this easy-to-understand for those who may not necessarily be car enthusiasts. For those who are after a deep and engrossing racing experience, the My Team Career mode is a joy to play through, with plenty of features to deep-dive into that extends across many hours. Whether playing online or offline, the developer has put forth one of the best racing experiences that can be enjoyed by F1 fans or newcomers alike.
With a driving model more accessible than ever, F1 2020 will let you enjoy its brand new My Team mode even if you are a newcomer.
Codemasters has not risked much in this latest installment before the generation change, although new features such as the My Team mode are appreciated.
F1 2020 continues to be one of the best racing simulator franchises out there at the moment. Whilst the game is visually lacking in places, that doesn't take away from the game's overall consistent quality. With tonnes of new additions, and some I didn't even mention like the new split-screen mode and two new tracks, F1 2020 is terrific value for money. It has a couple of flaws, but is overall a great racer that is welcoming to new players and challenging for grizzled veterans.
F1 2020 is a good racing game. The racing action is intense and the game options are endless. It is also cool that you can start your own team in career mode. Still, the game suffers from two flaws: the gameplay is almost identical to F1 2019 and the loading times disrupt the fun.
