F1 2017 offers up a bit of everything for the fans of break neck speed and close death situations with metal railings. but for this review most of my time has been sitting down with the career the game has, offering players the chance to sign up for a team and try their best to stand tall at the end of the season as the overall champ. Racing around the tight corners of Monaco (seriously, I never knew how deadly this track was until racing around it myself) to classics such as Silverstone, one thing the game does really well is make everything come together to make a game you can see that some love and effort has gone into it, which even an outsider guy can see and respect.
The one downside to what was otherwise an entertaining career was the terrible looking cut-scenes that would happen every now and then with you and your agent, or engineer. Apart from looking really dated, the screen also suffered from some screen tear while these took place, making them not only look even worse, but also taking a little away from the game that does really well in terms of looks in every other department.
Grand Prix - build you own race weekend or series with modern day or classic cars
Time Trial - Set lap times to feature on friend and global leaderboards
Event - A one-time scenario with a set objective where certain events have taken place. Do well to score highly for the leaderboard.
Championships - Come here to race in championships such as the world championships (minus the bells and whistles of career) to name just one.
MP - Public matchmaking, Custom game (you choose the rules), online championships.
Overall: I've enjoyed my time with F1 2017, I really did. Sure, I don't see it offering enough for a none F1 fan to make it an instant go out and buy for them, but in terms of it being a decent racer, the only place I can fault it for is things outside of the game (Dated and shoddy looking interactions). As for on the track stuff, F1 2017 does a great job of capturing everything about the sport. Speed, attention to detail, sound. F1 2017 has it all.
Great work in capturing what the F1 is all about
Career even kept me (not an F1 guy) entertained
Looks and sounds great on the track
Dated interactions that suffered with screen tearing too
