F1 2010 brings Formula 1 games back in a big way. Codemasters has built on its experience with the rally series DIRT and built a game that mixes a high level of realism with excitement and fun.

It's impossible not to notice how beautiful F1 2010 is. It's incredibly detailed and realistic, and the sense of speed you get is hair raising.

When Codemasters got the Formula 1 license, people worried it would make an arcade racer, while others worried that the game would just be another simulator. Thankfully, F1 2010 manages to be both. Like the best driving games, it allows you get as in depth and technical as you could possibly want, while allowing other players to skip the details and just drive fast!

What F1 2010 really achieves is making you feel like a driver, with a cockpit view that exactly mirrors reality. It's as intense and exciting as the sport itself. It's not a perfect game, but it's the best Formula 1 game ever. The only irritations are brought in from real life: tiny errors can end your race, and some of the in race penalties can feel unfair!

If you're a fan of Formula 1 or driving games in general, don't hesitate to buy F1 2010. It's the most complete, most intense F1 experience you'll get without becoming Lewis Hamilton!
