F1 2013

And racing in from behind, it’s team Lagz! They’ve been beaten at every corner like a Jar Jar Binks sex doll, but they’ve greased themselves up to slip in from the rear and claim victory as they reach around the apex! All thanks possibly to F1 2013!

The Reviews are live for F1 2013, and it looks like another podium finish for the sport of very rich people. Here’s what the critics are saying so far:

Gamespot – 8/10

F1 2013 takes you on a nostalgia trip into the history of Formula One, while compelling new modes and subtle improvements layer atop a familiar, but winning formula.

GamesRadar – 4.5/5

The F1 2013 package is extremely slick, whichever mode you play, and all the classic content feels like a labour of love.

Videogamer – 8/10

An accomplished racer, but one that needs some competition to really move forward.

CVG – 8/10

F1 2013 is version of the series we’ve been waiting years for – retro cars and drivers have been top of every fan’s wish-list since time immemorial, but the minefield which is licensing in the hyper-corporate world of Formula One (both past and present) has always mitigated against that.

Metro – 8/10

Since there are no other Formula 1 games with which to compare it to F1 2013 becomes the best in its class by default, but it’s a game worthy of praise no matter how thin the competition is.

Sounds like a solid game then, but one that falls too easily into the trap of being the only competitor in its class. It’s out this week Friday.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
