I didn't spend my money on it. Someone gave it to me as a present. Anyway, I think that the graphics are pretty nice. The only thing lacking is full simulation damage, like real life, like clipping a barrier gives you a puncture. And the second thing lacking is the physics, which is alright, but too forgiving and not spinning the car in the correct way like rfaxtor and grand prix 3 do. Other than that, the attention to detail is amazing.
Don't get me wrong, I thankfully got my graphics card and it worked fine. PCI e 2.1 cards are compatible with PCI e 2.1 slots and older.
The game runs fine, and is still a challenge, not really from a handling point of view, but from an AI point of view, the career mode, and its even more challenging if you drive with a keyboard. Like me. They have made it challenging but at the same time drivable for those who just want a bit of fun. Its not codemasters who say that they make an arcade style physics engine because they cant make a proper simulation, it's the buying community, most of which prefer less simulation and more playable, enjoyable physics. (for them)
I really don't care what the graphics are like. As ling as it looks something like what its supposed to. I'll gladly play grand prix 3 any day. Its the gameplay that matters to me. And even though the physics lacks (for some people within their gaming community), the rest is awesome, the AI, the challenges, the scenarios, the career. Nice stuff if you like that kind of thing.
Not trying to stick up for codemasters here, of course there are many things they could improve on, but its the buying community that they're focusing on. Not full physics simulation. You give me one fully licensed un modded f1 game which looks, sounds (they got the sound bang on) and feels better than codemasters f1 2013 and I'll gladly buy it as long as its not more than £20
