Critic Reviews for F1 22

F1 22 maintains this series' run as the most fully-featured and accessible mainstream motorsport sim on the market, but the flashy new F1 Life mode feels largely pointless.

Another superlative career mode, but the avatar customisation and tacked-on supercars feel like bullet points.

And yet for all that there's a nagging sense of overfamiliarity, of running the same races in slightly more bloated cars in what's now a slightly more bloated game. F1 22 is a remarkably broad game too, it should be pointed out - one that can be enjoyed by the growing audience the sport now enjoys. It's a remarkably familiar one too, mind, that through no fault of its own never really feels like the measure of last year's model - a predicament the sport finds itself in now, as it struggles to match the fireworks and fury of the classic that was the 2021 season. In that way, perhaps F1 22 is a little too authentic for its own good.

Brilliantly replicates the thrill of driving this year's F1 cars and even the cynical F1 Life, and it's awful microtransactions, can't spoil the excitement.

F1 22 is an iterative entry in the F1 series that focuses heavily on an authentic recreation of a new era in the sport, with fantastic results on the track.

‎F1 22 is very continuous with respect to its predecessor, despite the change of regulations that occurred in Formula 1, but, even so, it is very competitive on the track and its virtual races faithfully recreate the duels that Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes are starring in reality.‎

F1 22 is like a slice of birthday cake a couple days after the party. Someone (probably your dad) has pinched the glacé cherry from the cream splodge on top of your Black Forest Gateau, but your mum's put some regular cherries, banana and apple slices on the plate to it to make up for it. The fruit doesn't make sense, but the cake's still pretty good. Still, you're left dreaming of what next year's cake will be like. Maybe your cake engineer will be smart enough by then to actually know who you're racing against, and maybe Will Buxton will get some new jeans that don't look like they've carved out of stone. Maybe it'll be a carrot cake.

F1 22 is still worthy of picking up if you don't own a VR headset, if only to experience the new car designs, new circuits, updated team rosters, and re-mastered sounds. Outside these flashy new features, the core of the game is unchanged from previous versions, for better or worse. As with many other EA annual titles, I wish more time was spent improving the guts of the series, particularly the AI behavior, instead of adding social features such as F1 Live, but the new VR implementation gives me hope. One can dream, right? Now excuse me, I'm due for another front wing replacement. Elbows out in turn 1, drivers!
