    can you tell me if the braking is the same? if not, can you tell me if the cockpit view is the same? if not, can you tell me if anything related to the actual gameplay is different than the demo, other than the steering (which i believe will have changed?) :coffee:
  6. Thanks Tom, looking forward to your review.
  7. Nice, looking forward to reading it, although they are going to be changing things regarding the handling so not going to go overboard on what it written. I just want to play the game with the actual sim settings turned on.

  8. Excellent, at least its not like we have to wait a few day's. But this review could end up making me want the game even sooner (there are a lot of hours between the 17th and the 20th which is when the game is to be released for me). Anyway, here is what i hope is fixed or different at least.

    1. Car not so twitchy (this is a must).
    2. Online gameplay made more fun, rammers get banned from online gaming for life (thats something that won't be included i know, but i can still hope).:p

    From the demo i can't see anything else that needs to be changed, the AI might be to weak but if they are an improvement on last seasons title then its a step in the right direction and could very well be improved on in a patch at a later date.
  9. You better check the date, these guy's had a habit of going back in time, and looking at his face i would say he's realised he's made a mistake.:p

  10. So, i was playing the demo today with a G27, and i noticed that every time i was doing a full left or right turn, at the end of the movement the wheel would lose it's weight completely (going very light). Anyone experienced this? It was terrible, and i just want to know if someone else experienced this because i remember back in F1 2011 my experience with this wheel wasn't that great.

  11. Question has Codemasters taken may of the RD's improvement tips for this upcoming title http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/improvement-tips.49424/

    It's pretty much the same as F1 2011, physics-wise - the rear can and will go loose quite easily and isn't glued to the track like it is in the demo. Physics aren't as bad as people report it from playing the demo. In fact it's even a bit better than 2011 imho.

    The cars weren't twitchy at all but I believe that's depending on your wheel settings. I opted to use the ones I had in 2011 (0% for everything except steering linearity on 30%) and it was fine. Online gameplay, I can hardly say anything about it - sorry. :)

    I noticed this, too. I'm using a T500RS F1 and had the exact same issue in some of the chicanes at Interlagos S2.

    Some of them, it seems. :)
  13. Not to mention that sometimes it's just IMPOSSIBLE to turn, is this an attempt to reproduce understeer effects? Honestly, i can't believe that's real, it's just stupid at least for me. It doesn't matter if i'm accelerating or breaking, the car just can't turn and it goes on a straight line putting me outside the track (tried it in monza).
  14. Not put any pressure...

    But this particular review might influence if i'll buy the game or not.
  15. Hey are you guys going to upload your review as soon as the embargo is lifted or an hour or 2 later?
  16. I'm assuming the video is already uploaded but set to private? Would hate to wait for those nasty upload times.

    Everything is online but hidden, no worries. All I'm gonna do is hit some buttons. :)

    I just checked our communication again and I have made a mistake - it said 2PM, not 2AM!

    I've removed all posts asking about the review for now. The ETA is 1pm GMT, 2pm UK, 3pm CET.

    I'm sorry for the confusion.

    It's online since 3pm (CET) sharp, to be found here and I added tons of screens and videos (some of which were used for the review) here. :)
