XBox 360 – F1 2011

I’ve been a “gamer” since my first computer (Apple IIc) back in the 80’s.  I’m not as hard core as a lot of people, mainly because I have a job that requires me to get a good nights sleep and focus on the tasks at hand.

I posted earlier about the Microsoft Speed wheel for XBox 360 and I referenced the F1 2011 game.  I thought I’d share some feedback and a few videos, just in case you’re interested in checking it out.

Actual Gameplay (Qualifying Lap):

Here’s a comparison of the game vs. a real life lap:

As you can see by the videos above this is a pretty realistic simulator.  Fortunately there are a lot of computer assist settings you can enable to make the game playable.  I turned all the assists off and could barely drive the car around the track.  I imagine in real life these multi-million machines are VERY difficult to drive, let alone race.

F1 2011 for Xbox retails for around $50.  Last years version can be had for about half that price at Game Stop.  If you’re looking for a realistic and challenging racing simulator you’ll probably like this game.
