F1

Even Better Than the Real Thing

I think after this weekend we can all agree on one thing: this F1 season is boring.

I’m not going to get bogged down in the reasons why. The important thing here is that the real-world circus has handed a golden opportunity to game developer Codemasters. Launching two months earlier than normal, F1 2019 continues the focus on esports while also cramming even more content into the single-player experience. It has the ability to be more interesting and engrossing than that which it’s based on.

Of course, that’s the million dollar question: is it? I’ve spent nearly a week digging into it to find out.

F1 2019 releases Friday, June 28, on PS4, XB1, and PC (or three days earlier for the Legends Edition). Codemasters provided a pre-release version of the game for review on PlayStation 4. I played it on PS4 Pro, with both a pad and the Fanatec CSL Elite PS4 wheel (with P1 Elite rim).
