F1 2012

F1 2012 is a video game developed by Codemasters. It is based on the 2012 Formula One season, and is the sequel to F1 2010 and F1 2011. It is the fourth Formula One game developed by the Codemasters studios after the company renewed its licence to develop the official games of the series. It was announced on March 18, 2012, co-inciding with the first race of the 2012 season. The game was released on 18 September 2012 in North America, 20 September 2012 in Australia and 21 September 2012 in Europe. It uses the EGO Engine.

The Mac OS X version of the game was released by Feral Interactive on December 20, 2012.

F1 2012 received generally favorable reviews, earning a collective score of 81 out of 100 from Metacritic. IGN gave the game a 9.0, underlining that while yearly sports releases are faced with the difficult battle of introducing new content when the sport remains relatively unchanged, F1 2012 introduced noticeable tweaks to the gameplay that steadily improved it. GameSpot were equally-complimentary (8.5/10), applauding the developer for making the game more approachable to newcomers, but bemoaning the removal of some gameplay modes that had been included in previous releases.

The game received a positive, if somewhat cooler, response from within the Formula One community. F1 Fanatic noted that the game was highly entertaining and the core gameplay mechanics were very refined, the removal and repositioning of some gameplay features distanced the game from the world of Formula One. The review also cited Codemasters' repeated failure to utilise the potential of the title and address gameplay faults and glitches.
