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


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth problem with such platforms is they will only work with software where they can extract motion data, and having no standards there, they have build support for each individual game. (33 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @MrWhite: gotta untwist those cords (35 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What I want to know is, what if the game glitches? (53 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's a strange thing. I reckon being tossed around physically like that would help with certain sims, though. If not, yeah, you're projectile vomiting all over the gaff. LOL that would be hilarious. (54 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @MrWhite: I mean, part of the problem I've experienced is when you move without moving. I can feel my head go "Whoa! What's going on here?! I didn't send the signal to move!" (55 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: Locomotion. Wouldn't that help making your mind believe what its seeing a bit more for motion sickness? (57 minutes ago)

    rayy @alimokrane: Sometimes I think you care more about the viewpoint than if the game is fun lol. (1 Hour ago)
