F1 2010 was such a ludicrously strong start for Codemasters' Formula One franchise and F1 2011 was an even more incredible F1 follow-up, that we went into reviewing F1 2012 with some trepidation. What the hell can Codies' add to the Formula One formula that hasn't already been done? Pit babes, perhaps? Monkey racing mode? Actually that last one would be brilliant.
The answer comes in the form of Season Challenge (not monkey racing mode, sadly), which offers a neat half season for more casual racers, while the full-fat Career Mode is still in there for the hardened F1 nuts. But in hoping to embrace a wider audience with more forgiving handling and a whole mode for the more casual players, has Codies diluted the overall package?
