    Its mix of refined mechanics, updated graphics and all new cars results in a game that’s up there with the studio’s old-time greats. It’s proof that, very occasionally, they still make them like they used to.

    F1 2017 is another extremely strong entry in the series from Codemasters. Although newcomers to Formula One in its entirety might find it a little challenging to grasp, particularly when it comes to the in-depth Career Mode, racing fans and Formula One fans in general should be revving their engines in preparation for the glamorous world of Formula One racing once again.

    F1 2017 is a game that’s built for F1 fans. It does a really admirable job of bringing people like me along for the ride, but I think it rewards fans over and over again with an amazing F1 experience. Even though I’m not the biggest F1 fan I fell in love with F1 2017 and see it as a game that I’ll keep coming back to long after this review is published.

    Not just the fans, but anyone who is up for a fun race should definitely play F1 2017. This is one of the best ones ever made by Codemasters.

    Excellent career mode, tons of additional challenges and fast gameplay. Codemasters did great this year, but I would appreciate including more F1 legends. [11/2017, p.75]

    Although not as impenetrable to newcomers as earlier entries, F1 2017 in some ways falls victim to the curse of annual releases; with such a rigid release schedule in place the opportunity to meaningfully expand upon last year’s effort is reduced and often the best you get is possibly a new mechanic and a whole heap of fine-tuning of established mechanics. With F12017, its big new trick is the in-depth career mode and extensive level of customisation that comes with it and the rest is just a refinement upon the (Admittedly fun) foundation of previous games.

    F1 2017 is another superbly authentic recreation of modern F1. However, the sport’s current complexity will be overwhelming for most, and the returning classic content is nowhere near as good as it should be.

    I'm not one to write reviews for games but I thought I would go to the effort as I am having heaps of fun with F1 2017. Unlike previous F1I'm not one to write reviews for games but I thought I would go to the effort as I am having heaps of fun with F1 2017. Unlike previous F1 games where the AI was either too easy or too difficult there is now a slider to change the percentage of AI difficulty which allows for finer tuning to suit a vast array of play styles and expertise. Fuel management during the practice sessions and the classic F1 cars are great additions to the series, although I would like to have seen a Benneton F1 car included. The game runs at a very smooth 60fps which is a must when it comes to racing games for me. My only gripe is that there can be some screen tearing which is quite noticeable but I can forgive this as the rest of the game is near perfect. This game is a must buy for any F1 fan. There is also enough new content to satisfy people who played F1 2016. Do yourself a favour and buy this game. Expand

    The physics are the best ever, graphics are epic, the sounds are really good and it throws so many options at your face which makes it so cannot dislike the game and it fan as... An extremely fun thing...
    I didn't bother too much with the career but from the time I played it was good. It also gives you a lot of modes with a lot of cars. Even if there was a lack of tracks this didn't bother me and I if you get this game, try ramming into everyone and try to immobilise them, get them off the track and destroy their car, it is super fun!
    I give this a chocobo outta 10.

    Great visuals with very solid game-play & works well with the normal controller (PS4) - great to see a game released thoroughly tested andGreat visuals with very solid game-play & works well with the normal controller (PS4) - great to see a game released thoroughly tested and quality from day 1. If you find working through weekend practice sessions repetitive, try one of the other modes.
    Would suit fans who love F1 but should also appeal to others who enjoy the driving/racing genre in general. This is were the assists come into play, and help turn F1 into a casual game almost anyone can enjoy, to a game a seasoned F1 or sim pro would be challenged by. Great effort Codemasters.

    F1 2017 is not a perfect game. Specially the Online mode is very improvable but on the SinglePlayer modes it is outstanding. Great careerF1 2017 is not a perfect game. Specially the Online mode is very improvable but on the SinglePlayer modes it is outstanding. Great career mode, great move with the addition of classic cars, physics are very much improved, although graphics (at least on the drivers' and people's faces alike a PS2 game) have to be improved, the rest is good. Maybe it is the best F1 game since F1 Championship Edition or F1 Challenge 99-02, or maybe the best even above them... 2018 can be great, think about it. Expand

    Didn't have huge expectations, rather a small update on 2016. Wow. Beautiful work Codemasters. Physics are improved, graphics are very muchDidn't have huge expectations, rather a small update on 2016. Wow. Beautiful work Codemasters. Physics are improved, graphics are very much improved, classic cars are beautifully rendered, I can say without a doubt this is the best Formula 1 game/simulator I have played, and I have been playing for 20+ years. Since Geoff Crammond's Formula One racing simulators and perhaps EA's F1 games developed by ISI, we have not had anything this polished and complete. Can't wait to see the future of this series. F1 + Dirt have put Codemasters at the top again! Only con? Lack of VR. How amazing it would have been to drive these classic beauties in VR Expand

    The last F1 game you might ever buy for what's going to happen next year. I wish they added every single classic car and track from every eraThe last F1 game you might ever buy for what's going to happen next year. I wish they added every single classic car and track from every era on top of 2018 because really i don't want to buy another copy for this 2017 season. I usually sell the last copies to afford the next year; having the classics would really help until F1 get's better, it's very sick. I don't particularly like the new cars and the way F1 is being run, and it's going to get worse next year but the game this year isn't bad it's basically the same as the last 3 years. Particularly the tyre colors are making me depressed, now they have pink ones, it's not even the hybrid electric futuret. Having the few classic cars I can play might help me cope with the lose of F1, even though it's still with us and miss F1. Expand

    F1 2017 plays almost identical to F1 2016, plus a few minor changes like older golden era cars. Unfortunately the car physics is still sub parF1 2017 plays almost identical to F1 2016, plus a few minor changes like older golden era cars. Unfortunately the car physics is still sub par and the damage model is still a bad joke. And the graphics looks like 2015 not 2017 - Driveclub (2014) and GT Sport (2017) look way more realistic and better than F1 2017. Now that the Driveclub developer works for Codemasters as well, I really hope F1 2018 will have comparable great graphics to Driveclub next year! And please take a look at
    Geoff Crammond' Grand Prix 4 (2002), just bring more Formula 1 details and polishment to F1 2018!
