GC: F1 2010 in Quebec

GC: F1 2010 in Quebec

Let's continue our F1 2010 media frenzy, and this time, we are going to Montreal for one lap in cockpit view. You will see how hard it is to drive at full speed when you barely see the road and you don't know the track by heart.

I hope they have endurance races and you have to watch tyre wear and stuff, even If I only do that a handful of times, it's a whole different game then. I think the said they will be doing that my memory fails me... it would be very cool if they have some of the older F1 cars before all the regulation came in, the really ridiculous fast and hard to handle cars of old with manual gears -_-

Yeah, it's really hard. I don't know the track also. I know it, but I don't like it so I never try to really know it. Also, the camera doesn't allow much perception, you really gotta know the track and the braking spots when trying to drive with that camera.

Great job as should've tinkered a bit more with the menus(in-race and the pits) though. It's always interesting to see the the changes you can make to the car during a race.

P.S.- This season's tracks are not the best, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to learn a lot of new tracks with this game(Valencia - new one, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, Hungary, Abu Dhabi, etc....). They need to bring back some mythical races in Europe.

Oh also that aerial? doodad in the centre could get really irritating, I know it's authentic but still it would look less stupid on the drivers head. Gonna really benefit from a tripple head screen setup with this :-)

Is that really the visibility that F1 drivers have? Just higher the head a bit and maybe I could actually see the track.

Not having driving a F1 car, I couldn't possibly tell if the height is accurate, but from these shots(below) it looks pretty low.

Note that some cars vary the nose type so this Mercedes has those very high "arches"(same as the Red Bull) on the sides of the nose.

Now some videos that showed what I wanted to see from gameplay:

Expert difficulty and no assists(all off)

Messing with the setups before the race

Multiplayer ?

Looking really cool, the driving with assists off looks to be a little chalenging, not hardcore simulation but I wouldn't have expected that from Codemasters(I wished it though LOL).

If I buy this game I'll be buying a license, not the crappy gameplay.

I like this view but TV cockpit is also nice.

About the game

    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (1 Hour ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (1 Hour ago)

    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (1 Hour ago)

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (4 Hours ago)
