  1. The missus bought it for me yesterday and I’m loving it!!….great playability, fantastic graphics and great sound!!….glad it’s the weekend!!

  2. I’ve read the checklist and everyone’s comments, but forgive me if this has already been mentioned.

    One thing time and time again I wish I saw in F1 games is the ability to change drivers, make your own and customize. A lot of people will be playing this for years to come, but you all know how it is! The realism is sapped immediately once you’re racing a driver on the game and then you realise ‘oh yeah, he’s not in F1 anymore’ or if he’s driving for the wrong team.

    Not asking for anything too complex, it’d be just nice to keep the field up to date so the career mode doesn’t age so quickly, thus reducing replayability.

  3. It’s my birthday on the 29th so holding out in case anyone a) buys it for me, or more likely b) gives me gift vouchers for HMV or somewhere that sells it…
