Mac Gamer HQ Reviews F1 2013
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac Gamer HQ has posted a new review of F1 2013, the Mac version of Codemasters' racing sim. Brought to the Mac by Feral Interactive, the game offers the chance to experience "all the thrills of the 2013 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP" and, for the first time in Codemasters’ series, race classic cars on iconic circuits in a new game mode called F1 Classics.

In this latest iteration of the F1 franchise, realism is taken to another level and hence you’re on the edge of your seat all the time. No longer can you pin the throttle coming out of the corners, even with all the assists switched on, the cars will slide. Fortunately the game gives you enough time to apply some opposite lock. The physics give you a taste of what a real formula 1 driver might feel but cuts you enough slack to let you have some fun.

The brake assist has an additional mode to help you get used to the mechanics too. Along with the full braking assist mode, there’s a halfway version to help you ease into playing without any braking assist at all. Do keep in mind that even with the full brake assist, you still have to watch out as you may overshoot your braking point. One thing is for sure, arcade racing fans will probably not enjoy this sim gameplay style (at least you could still convert F1 2012 into an arcade racing game with all the assists turned on).
