F1 23 Reviews
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.

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

F1 23 falls short in the same areas as its predecessors have over many years. There's a great single player experience let down by a completely neglected multiplayer, which brings the games longevity into question. Those who love the F1 games regardless will find this iteration to at least be better in some ways.
F1 23 really nails the driving experience like no iteration has done before. Catching slides makes you feel every bit the seasoned F1 driver. It’s a game changer. The Breaking Point story mode is really well done with some great acting, story twists/turns and some top notch cutscenes that heighten the drama. It’s time now for the franchise to move up the grid and onto current gen only release, carrying forward the pieces that have been mastered. Codemasters must press the foot to the floor and finally put some of the quirks that have been hanging around the game for a few years now firmly in the rear view mirrors. This one takes the chequered flag with a very strong Thumb Culture Gold Award.
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 2023 does not reinvent the wheel, that is true, but the additions it has made added to the corrections implemented in the control make the title worthwhile for any fan of the highest category of motorsport.

This year's edition of F1 23 is far more complete than last year's, with the return of the story mode, improved gameplay, the arrival of a central hub with several ways of racing, and the introduction of the red flag. Codemasters undoubtedly has what it takes to convince players to pay for the game this time around, despite the absence of an update for F2 or the lack of novelty offered by the career mode.

F1 23 is a great title for what it aims to do. The game is fast, chock-full of features, and fulfills the need for a competent and polished driving sim. With the return of Braking Point along with the all-new F1 World, racing fans can expect a good time with the game.
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 is a case of evolution rather than revolution. It improves many aspects of its predecessor, most notably the feel of controller play and car physics that represent real-life Formula One as well as any game has. There’s still areas to improve, but only the most finicky F1 fan won’t be impressed by the exceptionally immersive racing experience Codemasters have created.
F1 23 arrives as a great recommendation for fans of the most important category of motorsport with engaging game modes, a very high quality presentation and subtle improvements in the user's quality of life that make our experience with the game very pleasant. Even with an EA microtransaction system that is not justified, Codemasters shows that it is an expert on the subject with yet another very high quality product.

F1 23 does exactly what we missed in F1 22. Braking Point is back and quite entertaining. In addition, there are different modes where you can test your skills and there are also opportunities to learn how to race with fewer tools. The new track, Las Vegas, drives great and visually F1 23 has been polished up here and there. F1 23 is mainly intended for the fans and these fans will therefore drive the necessary kilometers to be the new virtual Max Verstappen or Lewis Hamilton.

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.

feels and plays like the definitive F1 video game experience and one of the best racers of the year.
F1 23 is where the series finally achieves its current-gen potential, and we’re privileged to be here for it.
F1 23 is another step forward for this already incredible franchise with the return of Braking Point and the improved handling this replaces F1 22 as the best video game representation of the sport it is simulating. A must play for any F1 fans and players.
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.
Like Red Bull Racing winning every single Grand Prix, Codies brings home yet another cracking Formula One racing sim in F1 23, bringing back the excellent Braking Point story mode alongside all of that other good stuff. Break out the champagne – this one's a winner.
