It’s a little difficult for me not having played any of the codemasters F1 games. But CotA is very good. I like Sepang’s layout, and I have far more time for Sakhir than most people. I reckon I might like India to drive, but I hate it as an event. I’m not at all fond of Korea and detest Yas Marina and Valencia.
Although Singapore is a bit of a different spectacle and nicely demanding, I hate the layout. Even as a spectacle it suffers in that I sometimes struggle to differentiate different parts of the circuit, and although the night setting may be different (and certainly spectacular from helicopter shots), I feel like it’s a shame that all the architecture and surroundings are almost entirely hidden from view, even when they’re only a few metres away- the backdrop can have a big impact on my enjoyment, and Marina Bay isn’t distinctive besides being floodlit.
Turkey was always okay, but I’ve never ‘driven’ it, so I don’t know how enjoyable the first or last sectors are. It was always reasonably good to watch though.
