quote unclebobert87What competition? Also the graphics are poor on the PS3, and MP is bug riddled
quote articleLike I said, I did a side-by-side comparison with last year's copy and there is a difference in graphics. Not much, but it's visible when playing both in the same room.While I did find a few of those this time around as well, the majority of issues stemmed from a wonky connection to the servers. The insanely long load times trying to get into an online match was unsettling as I would wait nearly five minutes, only to be disconnected at the last second.
It was difficult to tell whether the hosts were closing down the sessions prematurely or not, but it took me nearly two hours the first night to get into a match.
I did notice a glitch with the online multiplayer portion I will mention for fun -- trophy hunters make note. During one of the online races, I had zipped past the three cars in front of me to take the lead. I had chosen the option tyres, and was very familiar with the track. I believe the original person who began the match found that a bit offensive and quit the session. When he/she left, the game removed all of the other drivers as well which left me alone to my own devices. Rather than stopping me, I was able to complete a full lap where I was declared the winner and awarded three online trophies for winning, running a clean race, and having the fastest lap.
quote PauliepoosNo mention of the shoddy graphics, piss poor framerate and the fact the mirrors don't work?
quote ArticleI did a side-by-side comparison with F1 2010 and the graphics do look a tad more polished. It's very easy to see when you're running both versions in the same room.The display has changed to support the new KERS and DRS indications. This can be a hindrance for the cockpit view, as they sit right over the right mirror making it useless for spotting drivers coming up from behind.
The graphics look a bit more polished, but there is still some minor pop-in in the distance. This is especially noticeable in the clouds and stands, but who really has time to admire the sights when you're screaming by at 200 mph?
quote darwiner71This game could have been a 10/10 if they would have taken old features from prior games that worked. Such as Podiums. who does a racing game without podiums and the champagne celebration. A trophy room where you could admire your trophies and contemplate your career stats and the other AI drivers stats as well. A Simple Helmet Designer with selectable shapes and colors. Graphics similar to GT5. Vintage races or season. Since they already had F1 2009 Why not add that or 1990 vintage classic races with Prost, Senna, Mansell, Piquet, etc...
All that could have been done and it would not have taken a lot of time. Looks to me like they were not as busy as they pretended they were. F1 2012 better be good otherwise I don't see them being able to get the long term deals like FIFA or Madden.
