Engine failure doubt

Discussion in 'F1 2013 - The Game' started by aquerelli, Dec 12, 2013.

  1. Hello guys.

    I'm just a little bit concerned about buying the F1 2013, so I have to ask you something.

    He is the doubt: In 2010 I bought F1 2010 and played it a lot having much fun with that

    (made about 6 seasons in career mode with two different drivers) and when I bought my

    DFGT Wheel, it got much, much funnier.
    Then I stopped playing for about a year because my lack of time. That is the reason why I

    didn't buy the F1 2011 game.
    So I came back playing my PS3 and I decided to buy F1 2012.

    I only played F1 2010 with no assistance, even in full expert mode and when I started to

    play F1 2012 that way I got quite disappointed because of my engine blows and failures

    when downshifting at the limit.
    I thought that was a game overstated mistake, because real F1 drivers downshift very,

    very fast and the engines are made and designed to resist to that way of driving. I'm not

    talking about a huge over rev for a long period of time. Just fast downshifting, like any

    driver do (just take a look at Youtube's F1 downshifting videos).

    So I got so much frustrated with F1 2012 and stopped playing in few days, because I

    couldn't finish a race and I didn't have time to practice the slow downshifting.

    My question is: does F1 2013 works similarly? Will the engine start to smoke in 2 laps

    and the blow in 4 or 5 laps if I downshift fast in a race?

    By the way, does that "glitch" was patched in F1 2012 for PS3? (I'm asking it because I

    don't play since oct/12)

    Thank you for the attention!

    I'm pretty sure they "patched out" (fixed) the engine failures in 2012 before Christmas. I only saw one or two, and that was right after the game was released.
    And I have not seen any in 2013, not even the AI.

    They patched it to stop the engine blowing after using a flashback, but not in a general sense.

    Engines blowing out in F1 2013 is not an issue this year.
  4. Ok, buddies. Let me check if I understood.

    The engines don't blow out anymore in F1 2013. No blows and no smoke... never!
    Is that correct?

    That's correct.
