F1 2018

F1 2018 is a racing video game and the tenth instalment in the Formula One video game franchis. The game is based on the 2018 Formula One World Championship and includes all twenty-one circuits from the calendar and all twenty drivers and ten teams competing in the season.

Feature substantial revisions to its career mode compared to previous systems. F1 2017 introduced a detailed progression system that allowed the player to focus on developing the engine, chassis and aerodynamics of their car. This will be simplified in F1 2018  research demonstrated that players were losing interest in the game before completing the car’s development cycle.

Players develop their cars by spending “development points”, which are earned by meeting research and development targets during free practice sessions. Will be introduced a wider range of free practice programs to the game in a bid to extend the game’s longevity. At the halfway point of each championship, the player has the option of ending their development cycle and banking all future development points for the next championship. This function has a renewed importance in F1 2018 as teams are subject to rule changes at the end of each championship which can potentially compromise the car’s performance.

Due to a slight technical issue, images are provided by Codemasters. Our reviewer has verified that these are representative.

Eight years into its licensed F1 franchise, developer Codemasters continues to explore new ways of enriching the off-track experience as well as on it. The headline feature for this year is the column inches themselves. In the shadow of narrative-driven modes in sports titles like FIFA 17’s The Journey, F1 2018 asks: will you be a sportsman or a showman?

For years now, the F1 games have been objectively very good racing titles – slick, fast, refined packages that deliver a virtual representation of the world’s fastest sport. Where gaps have appeared, Codemasters has filled them. Features like classic cars deliver appropriate fan service, and there have been consistent improvements made to everything from the looks, to the drive-feel and the opponent AI.

They slot seamlessly into the championship career mode, at least. It’s pretty standard stuff in that department – pick a team from the grid, complete practice test sessions to unlock points to upgrade the car, earn rivalry points through qualifying and race results, and aim your way toward a championship win.

I always think that the F1 games give more back the more you put in. Best advice? Play it on harder settings than you’re perhaps used to. Ditch the assists so you’re not helped out by restrictive ABS brakes or traction control; get rid of the fluorescent driving line that guides you into each corner and gives you visual cues on when to brake.
