If we rewind to one year ago, scour the GameZone website pages, you would find me praising the underrated Formula 1 2011 title for the Xbox 360. The amount of work put into F1 2011 was noteworthy. The precision, the speed, the fun: it all came together to make one heck of a racing title. Now, one year later, Formula 1 2012 arrives on my doorstep and I wonder to myself, will it be as good as its predecessor? Will it continue the tradition of a good, solid racing game by perfecting the art of precision and rip-roaring speed? Snap on your safety belt and put on your fancy helmet and we'll see if F1 2012 takes pole position or ends up in last place. At startup, F1 2012 looks just as delectable as last year's title. The intro video before the menus sets the pace and gets the excitement pumping. Before you know it, you are browsing the menus in a very sleek looking interface that's extremely easy to use. You'll also notice there are lots of modes to choose from. F1 2012 offers Quick Race, Multiplayer, Career and Proving Grounds, each offering something a little different than the other. Obviously, quick race is self-explanatory. Pick your favorite team and then a racer from that team, pick a course and you're ready to race.
Regardless of whether you worship at the shrine of Scudiera Ferrari or think F1 cars are little more than multi-million dollar go-karts, the fact remains that if you've played a Codemasters racing game, you've felt their genuine passion for automobiles. It's infectious—admirable even—and it seeps from every pore of F1 2012, their third F1 title since picking up the license in 2010. While it can be unforgiving and even draining at times, few racing sims available today can claim to have as much technical detail, or all-encompassing immersion. The folks at Codemasters clearly believe there is something magical and beautiful about F1 racing, and right from the opening video of F1 2012, they convince you as much. It's an ode to the pageantry of the sport, and the passion of the people who compete in it. This sense of respect and awe continue to the first menu, where your car is treated to a visual display of such opulence, you would think it was a singular, special being rather than just one of many speed machines. It's a feeling driven home further by the rousing orchestral soundtrack, which is far more memorable than it needs to be, given the genre.
Motorsport can deliver incredible drama. So far the 2012 season has been exciting and intense, despite Maldonado's attempts to hospitalise every driver on the grid. Codemasters' F1 2012, however, packs a lot less surprise but just the right amount of drama.Even though Noel Gallagher's nasally ballad ‘What A Life' reverberates into earshot during the opening pre-roll, there's no glamorous, champagne-spurting superstar lifestyle here. Codemasters has done the sensible thing and scrapped the Live the Life sections of career mode almost entirely. No dull interviews, no banal post-race press conferences - even the removal of the motor home menu welcomes the departure of off-track-centric rubbish. Aside from a few obligatory checks of your in-game email, F1 2012 feels firmly concentrated on the racetrack, and it's vastly better for it.You're not just handed the keys straight away, though. This year sees the addition of the Young Drivers Test. This is essentially a jazzed-up tutorial designed to introduce new players to the fundamentals of F1, similar to Gran Turismo's License Tests. Despite the useful tips in later stages, the first few tests are far too basic. The mode comes off as contrived and pointless for experienced players, and the inability to progress to career mode before completing the first day of objectives is frustrating for competent players.
