F1 2013 does a great job of reproducing the high-octane thrills that come along with driving a Formula One vehicle. The bar was set high last year when Codemasters released the hit 2012 version; F1 2013 tweaks and refines last year's release without introducing confusing new features. Instead of focusing on future equipment, Codemasters has shifted their focus backwards with the addition of classic cars from the 80s and 90s; this adds an exciting new element to last year's hit game.
Folks that choose to play F1's “Classic” version get treated to 11 extra cars and drivers; the vehicles can all be driven on classic or modern tracks. It's always fun to experience the raw power of older cars. Learning the quirks of every vehicle is a fun way to pass some time; players can use Codies' Flashback system to correct driving mistakes on the fly.
The Classic mode of F1 2013 is thoroughly enjoyable, but that doesn't mean that you should dismiss the game's modern-day content. If this is your first time playing the game, you'll discover a realistic simulation that uses intelligent technology to help new drivers flatten out the game's steep learning curve.
Like the 2012 version, F1 2013 offers Career mode. The first few races bring drivers up to speed with the basics of braking, accelerating, cornering, DRS and KERS. Once you get the basics down, you can take part in races on all F1 2013's 20 tracks. If you do well enough, you can gradually work yourself up to the role of F1 champion.
If Career mode is too much of a time commitment, players can choose Grand Prix mode; this allows them to step in the shoes of any F1 driver to race specific events. Players have the option of racing against others online; multiplayer runs lag-free and smooth.
