I forgot to add, they also added split screen, and 24 cars online, ie, a full grid. Of course this game will have bugs. They ALL do. Still, 2010, was enjoyable even with it's bugs, and all of the ones on MY system were fixed with the patch. That's way better than some companies who refuse to patch bugs or even acknowledge they are there, which is a lot of them.

Nothing like an "Englishman" properly pronouncing "Guy Cocker" and "brain Hole".

Why are people complaining about not having any improvements? Graphic overhaul? What? You don't overhaul a system you just came out with. Here's a SMALL list of things they added/changed off the top of my head. Personalized AI - drivers drive more like their reputation Player Replays - You can see each driver during the race on demand They got rid of the EVO muted colors look Changed the tire and car physics model to allow for more aggressive driving (not sure if I like this, honestly) Added a safety car Added red flag restarts Added more pit strategy Redid the objectives in career mode Increased and added damage modeling Car failures Added more engine wear I'm missing stuff, I'm sure. They didn't need to "overhaul" anything. The game was one of the best F1 games there has ever been. Sure it has bugs but seriously, they made ONE game, and it's a great start. 2010 had issues at first but after the patch a lot of it was fixed. It was a fun game, and I really enjoyed it. It's not going to be a 'sim' because that's what rFactor and iRacing are for...this is for fun, made for a controller or cheaper wheel. And I'm not sure - but aren't the graphics a TV station thing, not an F1 thing? That wouldn't be included in the license since F1 can only license their own trademarks.

it's unbelievable that an official f1 game isn't allowed to use the correct timing and results screens what f1 actually use due to licensing lol, or it took alot of hard work to get the license for the safety car lol, just sounds ridiculous, surely they should just sign the deal with berny and everything related to f1 should be allowed in game, esp the results tables and timings are they hiding or affraid someone will copy it or something lol. understandable a little bit for the safety car having so much sponsor logo's on it but f1 is just so greedy, and hungry for money

@SpoonyPizzas For split screen it's just per track. To do a season with a friend you have to play co-op online.

Hope they have split screen career or split screen with a full grid!!!... not just 2 player split screen on one massive track >.>

Superb show, as always, and I'm glad they didn't mention anything about CoD. Also, great ''massive sack'' joke!

Doesn't look much different from last year. Was hoping the career mode would be much better and not like an arcade racing game.
