F1 2012 will be available next week on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, but this week Codemasters put online on the three platforms a demo showing the new Young Driver Test mode and a Season Challenge race on Monza. Thus we've made some PC videos to wait until the full version.

I've played the pc demo and it's a lousy and lazy port. The graphics are dull, the driving is ok, but the gamepad, which I use because i'm too lazy to set up my steering wheel every time I play, has no input options at all. The menu is shit, the garage is still the same as always. I see no reason to buy it.

^whut? I've tried with the Xbox 360 USB controller and the Xbox 360 wheel (the original) on the PC and it's pretty great.

What do you mean no input options at all? I changed the rear view button to the right stick (click) because that's what I'm used to. You can individually set buttons on the 360 controller...

No sensitivity settings is what I meant.

Handling has improved when using the Fanatec wheel. The force feedback could be a bit better IMO but I can live with that. Engine sound is fantastic this time. Tried it on the 360. Day one as usual for me.

Well I tried the PS3 demo and I really enjoyed this. Maybe its because I didnt play any F1 before, but really nice. One thing I would like to highlight is the awesome music and graphics in menu. So clean and stylish. Great! :-o

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX If using G-Sync didn't make me a believer, losing it certainly did. 120hz w/o any sync is damn jarring after g-sync. (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's yet to be a public demonstration of Freesync that's on the same page as G-Sync though. It's all been on like a 40-60hz range. (12 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @GriftGFX: Yeah I can understand that. We will have to wait and see how well freesync work first though. (12 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @rayy: I don't believe them. If it's part of the displayport standard, they're probably going to wind up supporting it. They just want to push G-Sync now. (14 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy So yeah if freesync works well with AMD and is supported trough all monitors coming we could see Nvidia get forced to support it to, and that could be a win or everyone. (18 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @GriftGFX: well Nvidia says that they wont be supporting freesync, but that can change if it is support trough all monitors coming and people demand it. Also depends on how well it works on AMD. (18 minutes ago)
