F1 2010

F1 2010 is a BAFTA Award–winning video game based on the 2010 season of the Formula One world championship. It is the sequel to the 2009 video game based on the same series. The game was released in September 2010 on the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. It has sold 2.3 million units worldwide. The game engine is based on the new EGO 1.5 engine, an unofficially titled evolution of the EGO 1.0 engine that was created specially for the title.

ReceptionThe game was received positively, with developer Codemasters receiving praise for their attention to detail when it comes to developing racing games. The weather system which Codemasters aimed would be "the most comprehensive and impressive weather system ever seen in a racing game" and the execution was given a rave reception by reviewers including Official PlayStation Magazine (UK) who said "It's one of the most terrifying and intense racers ever made", giving the game 9 out of 10 overall. IGN UK gave the game 8.5 out of 10, citing its impressive dynamic weather system as a plus point and even going as far to say "...it's possibly the best iteration of the sport of all time". However, they criticised the career mode, the game's in-game HUD and "forgettable" soundtrack. A number of reviews (e.g. SimHQ.com and Techtree) have also specified that F1 2010 is not geared towards simulation driving model enthusiasts but offers a more arcade driving model, stating "The impression is that the engine handling the driving physics has been tweaked very well to simulate basic car behavior in a detuned, toned-down version suitable for a game that has to gain broad market appeal, but lacks the extra bit of finesse and driveability that should be an objective for a simulator as well as for a game."
