Without a pun, after having released the very good F1 2016, the studio Codemasters was expected at the turn. Last year, the simulation had regaled us: fast, demanding, technical, F1 2016 had everything to convince the purists. Nevertheless, there were many ways to improve the title and wondered if the English would succeed. We are almost ashamed to have doubted their skills, as the new vin has responded to our expectations.
F1 has been at the party for two years now. The queen category of motor sports has long been abused by studios with limited means, more often interested in the profitability of operating such a license than the production of a good video game. With Codemasters things are different and for some time, fans of F1 can count on a few games very honest … Voire absolutely unavoidable, as was the case last year. Rebelote this year, with this F1 2017 that does not lack much to claim the title of best racing game of the year. That is not to say a lot, when you know the schedule of release of this end 2017, with monsters like Gran Turismo Sport, Forza Motorsport 7, or Project CARS 2.
Codemasters relies heavily on its Career mode, which allows players to create their own driver and join one of the prestigious stables of the Formula 1 championship. On paper, things have not changed much since F1 2016: the same character editor rather limited, the same interface, a similar decoration with first-person view on days of rest, etc. We are even a little disappointed to see that it is always possible to join any stable, whatever its level. And replace the driver of his choice. That is, even as a beginner, you can join Mercedes and take the place of Lewis Hamilton, one of the best drivers of the moment. And it will completely disappear from the chessboard. If there is not really a perfect solution, we would still appreciate that Codemasters is reviewing how our driver is integrated into the championship. As for example by making us pass a test, at the launch of the Career, whose results would have had an influence on the stables that can be reached, or not. Simple but effective.
Anyway, we finally opted for Redbull, with an interesting challenge: to restore the coat of arms of the team by bringing it back to the level it was a few years ago. The developers nevertheless had the good idea to attribute to each team different objectives, in cohesion with their situation this season. For example, Ferrari does not aim less than the title: with them, the player will not therefore have the right to the error. Mercedes offers a better maneuvering walk, claiming to stay at the top of the standings; the smaller stables will be less demanding, insisting rather on the consistency of the results. Of course, we wanted to test this system of objectives, and thus play with the nerves of the Redbull staff. The latter was not very coherent, reacting to any of our biggest failures, even the most stinging. Yet it is not for lack of having tried! On the other hand, after our first Grand Prix victory, the leaders did not hesitate to send us a warning: funny way to motivate a novice driver … In short a lack of coherence certain that initially testifies of a certain laxity, then the inability of the staff to update themselves on the last performances. Too bad, the feeling of immersion takes a hit.
