Hi all, This is the first time I've ever done something like this so cut me some slack haha. F1 2011 Got Delivered today by my Suprise, thanks to the great service at coolshop , Installing the Game Excitement get's the better of me and i bang my foot on a pole by mistake, not a good start to a Game which is going to be challenging to race on. After a short 5 Minute Installation I set up my Logitech Pro-filer , Head in to Game i set my Graphics to Max and Assign all my Steering Wheel Buttons , ok everything is in check. I load into game and clearly impressed by the polished Loading screen and menu's, with a big smile on my face im eager to test the game's new handling out..... So i load in and on the track, to my amazement i am gosmacked by what i am faced with, The settings we're all over the place for the Steering Wheel, every setting similar to F1 2010 i used, only to find out it's the complete Opposite in this game! After 1 hour of Testing i finally get a Setup im comfortable with for the Logitech G27, My Test Starts at Monza, zooming down to the first corner im amazed at how late you can actually brake now, tyres locking up so easy smoke coming off all 4 wheels, i hit the kerb and glide over, going down to Turn 3 i notice a major mistake already by CM, the Fantastic looking Red White and Green Kerbs are not there, they are the Standard Red and White once again. My First Stint of the game goes without a hitch, very impressed by the Braking , Handling and the new Gadgets we now have DRS & KERS, Eager to test them out i head Straight into a Race Online! One of the RD Member's Ermanno Cargofiglo Kindly Invited me to a race, i happily Accepted, my first game online i was doubting my ability to even grab a competitive time with 9 other people in the Room we soon got down to business, immediatly i noticed a very neat Feature "Live Tracker" Using this feature to my Advantage i hop out when it's clear on Track, the first lap i start to warm up my tyres, it took me around 30 seconds to completely warm them up with some hard Braking in between to get everything tip top for a Hot Lap. Starting my Hot Lap i take Full Advantage of the DRS and deploy it going down the Start/Finish Straight, i noticed a big increase and skeptical of running off i brake 10 metres earlier then normal, it worked out well that i landed 5th in GRID Position. on my way to use both DRS & KERS during lap 2 of the Race , Speeding to Turns 10 & 11 i brake very late and turn in perfect quickly turning my wheel right setting myself up for the next corner(Turn 11) , speeding through here full throttle the car loses the backend and spins off, i found out if you ease the throttle just alittle it's less twitchy through the high speed corner's, going full throttle through a fast corner even if your capable of doing it you risk spinning of and wrecking your car. After The Race i reflected on my short Experience so far, and i have to say the game has beaten my expectations, CodeMaster's done a Good job on Handling and adding in some crucial Features. However not everything is plain sailing, let's move onto the Pros and the Cons of F1 2011 i have noticed so far Normally i would Start with the Pros, but i'll start with the Cons first for once. Cons Starting up your game if you [ Hit ] Enter on the Keyboard you will find yourself having to re-select the "custom" profile in the Driving Controls ( a small glitch but very irritating ) DRS & KERS are a new Feature for F1 , and a new feature codemaster's have never added in any of their games before, the con is the DRS Simply give's you far to much speed when you use it ( it's been slightly over done ) AI are still not upto Scratch , Having been Improved they are more intelligent but still not Aggressive enough, it has also been Reported they have been in some very unrealistic lap time's in Career mode. Car Mirrors - Having sat in a few cars so far i couldn't help but Notice How Poorly the mirrors have been done, the Reflection is still horrible just like it was in F1 2010 , seeing the car behind you in the mirrors is still very hard to do. Time Trial- When you first start the Time Trial in WET you automatically have Intermediates on Despite it being 100% Rain in TT Mode, you have no option from what i can see to even change to FULL WET's , this is happening on Melbourne Pros Friendly FPS in the game Live Tracker , Spectate Mode now available when your out of a race , Better Handling , improved Graphics. Improved Sound, the downshifting is ever so more noticeable having it's own distinctive Sound which definitely helps you downshift. Track is more realistic Multilayer - Server Browser is now Available Race Incident Feature - Check who has Crashed and for what Reasons (much more indepth) We have the nurburgring New Lobby Layout which is much more Details All Sector times are now showing up! We have Pit Girls. RD F1 2011 League's are coming on all Platforms! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No FULL WETS During Time Trial in 100% Wet Weather ( Melbourne) Everything which has been said in this Thread is My Opinion.
