F1 2011 – Twitter Questions Answered + First Review

Codemasters have released a new video of their upcoming F1 2011 Formula One title, showing Steve Hood (Chief Game Designer), Paul Jeal (Senior Producer) and Lee Mather (Handling Designer) answering questions from their Twitter followers.

The questions touch on various subjects, including details on the KERS & DRS systems and the new time trial mode.

Furthermore, the Official Playstation Magazine is the first media outlet to review F1 2011, scoring it at 8/10 (F1 2010 received a 9/10 score). The magazine calls F1 2011 “a game about appreciation for the sport” that’ll “change the way you watch the Sunday affo Grand Prix,”, frowning upon the supposedly steep learning curve, calling it “unforgiving and newbie-unfriendly”.

While that sounds promising to the ears of sim racers, reviews from mainstream gaming outlets should always be taken with a grain of salt as none of the big F1 2010 reviews picked up on the scripted AI times for example.

F1 2011 will be released for the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on September 23, right in time for the final races of the real life 2011 Formula One World Championship season. The new title will come with improved graphics & handling, new features such as multiplayer splitscreen, a working safety car as well as a much more extensive career mode.

    Yeah, only on a website like this would a ‘Steep learning curve’ be veiwed as a good thing, Needless to say i smiled a bit to myself as well 🙂

    A really promising pospect this one. The PC version was miles better than the console efforts in F1 2010 and I will be going down that route this time.
