Bandai Namco Games provided Family Friendly Gaming a download code for F1 2015. That was the good news. The bad news was the download size was so massive we could not afford the Internet usage fines to download it. So we went ahead and rented a copy of F1 2015 on the Xbox One. If you like Formula One racing then you will get into F1 2015 on the PC, PS4, or Xbox One. If you don’t, then F1 2015 is going to be a hard sell.
Graphically F1 2015 is beautiful to see. The cars, weather, tracks, people, and more look great in this racing video game. I should note that F1 2015 is not very kind to casual gamers. Even with the assists turned on. It takes practice and patience to get good at F1 2015.
F1 2015 is big on following the rules. No cutting corners, no hitting other cars, etc. I was warned, flagged, and chastised for every single little mistake. I felt like I could do nothing right in F1 2015. What really burned me was the computer would smash into me, knock me off the track, and not be penalized. I was not given that position back, like when I have to give a pass back because I did it illegally. F1 2015 has a set of two standards - one really hard for the player, and two really light for the cheating computer.
Families can choose the 2014 or the 2015 season in F1 2015. This racing game is lacking in modes. We can race a few different ways, including the dreaded online. There are an okay amount of tracks to race in. Most of the cars feel the same in F1 2015.
F1 2015 needs some serious help in terms of being approachable by all skill sets. The controls in F1 2015 are difficult at best. Play in the rain, and your car is really loose. Taking corners is nearly impossible in this game. Yet again the computer controlled characters can do it with ease. I like this franchise and feel it has promise. If it would only think of less experienced gamers.
