F1 23 Reviews
With the sport growing rapidly, and no intentions of slowing down, 'F1 23' continues the yearly release, but gives the player a good experience. Whether you're a total rookie on the controller or a pro on your Fanatec wheel. 'F1 23' is a fun time overall.
It’s completely normal, that the next installments of a sports series evolve slowly. Fortunately, sometimes there is a revolution – F1 23 is one such example. The game is well thought out, has some excellent changes, and has a terrific steering/traction model that makes it one of the best sports games ever.

With big improvements, yet still some solid flaws, F1 2023 comes up pretty strong but still with a lot of room to grow.
F1 23 makes welcome changes and additions to the series with the most beneficial being the racing.
F1 23 is a fantastic entry to the perennial Formula 1 experience. Driving is polished on both wheel and controller, and the visual experience is second to none.
F1 23 is the pinnacle of the Formula One series to date. If ever there was a jumping-on point for new racing fans, this latest entry from Codemasters in the long-running licensed series is it. This F1 simulation manages to innovate the most prominent and constructive aspects of what came before. Using a controller as input never felt better in a racing sim with highly responsive and precise movements, and elements that used to be unnecessary, such as F1 Life in F1 22, have been upgraded into a multi-faceted progression system worth your time and effort. F1 23 is a remarkable package for fans of the sport.
F1 23 is a title that looks good, improves in many aspects, but does not excel in others.

F1 23 is pretty much a faultless racing experience. While its career mode may be lacking in innovations this year, the return of Braking Point and the new F1 World mode more than make up for it. Add in other improvements and features, and you have what is undoubtedly the best F1 game yet. If you’re an F1 fan this is an absolute must-buy as usual, but even racing game fans in general would be wise to add this to their collection. With its wealth of content, brilliant handling and sublime presentation, F1 23 is simply racing at its finest.
Overall, F1 23 is a surprise and a significant improvement of the series, especially compared to the weaker F1 22, it is a nice jump. It has a lot of content for both single player and multiplayer drivers.

For fans of the F1 series, this all comes down to one question, and it's the same one asked last year: Is it worth picking up F1 23 if you already have last year's title? In my opinion, the F1 World mode and the improved vehicle physics are noteworthy upgrades and feel more than what could realistically have been DLC or a patch for the previous title. The improvements for controller users are especially noticeable, and I suspect that most people playing F1 23 are indeed using that control scheme. When you combine all of that and consider the continuation and improvements made to Breaking Point, it's pretty easy to recommend picking up F1 23.
F1 23 follows the ascending line that Codemasters has had in recent years. The specific changes have resulted in the best Formula 1 game so far and it is definitely a complete experience for all fans of the greatest motorsport series.

Another fastest lap under for Codemasters, the predictability of the cars makes it a lot easier to handle than previous years-especially for those using a controller. Wheel users might not benefit so much from the changes, but the cars still feel more planted.
F1 23 brings enough to the table this year for fans to get excited about. Braking Point and the newly introduced F1 World are worth highlighting for any F1 racing fan.
In what it proposes, F1 23 is virtually perfect. Keeping the graphical fidelity and the refinement of mechanics that worked well in the previous game, it brought back a narrative mode that, along with an overhaul in the interface and quality of life, only improves what was already amazing.

F1 23 confirms its position as one of the best simulators on the market, correcting the mistakes of the last title, and Codemasters have taken a step forward from last time. However, the title still suffers from a lack of time between releases. It tries to compensate for this with a story and a new F1 World mode, but it won't be enough for everyone.

Every year the question is how good F1 has become again, but again this year they manage to outdo themselves at Codemasters. The game has some innovation due to the slightly changed interface, the return of the story mode and the addition of F1 World. Above all, F1 World brings many challenges that will make you want to return. The career mode, however, brings very few new features, but is still rock solid. The gameplay changes such as the excessive oversteer takes some getting used to, but eventually brings a lot more realism. I take for granted the poor acting and voice-overs, but they bring a somewhat childish character to the game. However, F1 23 is again a good step forward and especially with the many challenges that have been added, great value for money.

For an annual release like F1 23, the changes are again significant.

F1 23 takes big swings, and most of them pay off. F1 World is a solid foundation that can be built on year after year, and Braking Point is an engaging story mode you can play through once. But the general shift into more multiplayer focus without the proper tools to make it function fluidly leave this more of a game for full cockpit racing sim heads than regular race fans.
Far be it to appear crotchety, but F1 23 is yet another yearly Formula One game that sports only incremental improvements, many of which are minor or otherwise injected with travail. Yes, it’s harsh to expect a yearly entry in a sports franchise to totally change the game, but F1 23 could’ve at least conjured up a feature that’d plant a seed for something extraordinary in future entries. But alas, it’s a mostly-safe F1 game riding on the successes of previous F1 installments. Braking Point 2.0 does offer some solid (if sometimes cringe-inducing) drama, the driving mechanics and presentation continue to impress, and generally, to an outlier, this is one fabulous F1 game. However, resting on your laurels only gets you so far, and F1 23 has failed to move the needle in regards to making F1 games even more compelling than they already are. By all means, pick up and relish another core EA and Codemasters F1 outing, but it’s time the series stopped playing it safe and gave us something audaciously new.
