    So with an awesome season panning out on Beeb 1/HD, the Game launches in 2 days (Friday 23rd).

    So who's buying it? And for what?

    Personally, i can't wait to cruise past Vettel with a rubbish car and win, but I'm certainly looking forward to the new features the game brings:

    Improved AI
    KERS
    DRS
    Safety Car
    Different colour Flags*

    *Pretty sure i've read that Red Flags can be used

    There's also a Co-Op Career, so who fancy's a bash at that? I will be playing the PC version.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    I'd love to do a race on a regular basis, keep points for bragging rights and nothing else

    Honestly, I could watch that first video for eternity. It is seriously epic.

    EDIT: All the music sounds very ES Posthumus so they either ripped him off or paid him to do them haha.

    The warning on the last one is the greatest thing I've ever seen.

    Hoping to get my LED rev indicator, gear indicator and shift light installed to wheel this week, then when the novelty eventually wears off I can set them up for rFactor :)


    P.S already got DRS and KERS buttons

    Ordered it to give another chance to Codemasters. Hopefully will enjoy this more than F1 2010.

    ALso ordered from play - £18 seemed quite reasonable for a new release of this type. Very much looking forward to the new features. Let's hope it won't be ruined by bugs/glitches from day one, F1 2010 was quite good in the end.

    i hope its better than F1 2010. Found it got a bit tedious in the end. I hope they have improved the interviews/press interaction, as it did need a bit of work!

    Yup, got the PC version, looking forward to this, stop playing 2010 form some reason I can't fathom, think I just fancied a change after 50 odd hours but had some enjoyable times on 2010, particularly when I was sat inches from the TV screen with my vision full of the track, really felt the immense speed.

    Mine arrived. WOOP! Got it installing now. Gunna do a few races tonight I think. On a side note PCG gave it 88%. Review HERE

    That's two preordered games in as many months getting great scores. Maybe I preorder more often.....or perhaps I just have good taste :D

    Mine worked perfectly from start, no problems loading it. Didn't play it as much as I wanted as I got into a Borderlands marathon. But did a quick race and it seems a solid racer.

    Will know more after a few races into my career which I'm going to start tonight.

    Still no sign of my copy, Useless play.com. Don't know why i thought they would be able to get a pre-order out on time. Oh well, the suspense.
