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.

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.

F1 23 is a title that looks good, improves in many aspects, but does not excel in others.

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.

With big improvements, yet still some solid flaws, F1 2023 comes up pretty strong but still with a lot of room to grow.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Whether you’re fulfilling a fantasy of being a driver on a famous team, racing your friends list with a custom team, or taking part of a Netflix-style docu-series; there’s lots of racing to be had. I can’t find anything about this package to be disappointed with, not even its price point, which feels warranted for once. F1 23 simplifies what didn’t work in prior years, continues a story mode that improves on the original, and expands on modes to make them more worthwhile than ever. Codemasters put on a clinic this year, and manages to top themselves year-over-year with F1 23 being the best entry they’ve made yet.

But ultimately, F1 23 remains a great racing game, more accessible than ever for newcomers, more authentic than ever, more customizeable, and most notably featuring the comeback of the excellent Braking Point story mode. It is by all means an iterative upgrade with not many standout features, but the unified F1 World experience and various smart changes make F1 23 a worthy addition to F1 fans’ libraries.

EA Sports and Codemasters deliver another great outing oft he F1-series. F1 23 deliver tons of gameplay- thanks to the addition of Braking Point 2 and F1 World. Longtime-F1-players will be disappointed due to the lack of new features in the career-mode however.

F1 23 is a good effort on Codemasters' part, in a franchise that is released year after year. It is a complicated task to implement major novelties in just 12 months, but this time it was noticed that they struggled. We have a more desirable Braking Point 2, an F1 World full of competitions and challenges, and the implementation of the Super License and Tech Level that give the depth that was missing. Those who feared the possibility of this being just a year dedicated to updating the drivers and cars, can rest assured. This season is one of the best of recent times in the universe of virtual Formula 1 racing.

We can say, without a doubt, that F1 23 is once again crowned king in terms of Formula 1 simulation games. After playing with a friend who has never had experience in games of this type, he told me that he felt really comfortable and that he had a great time playing in his casual mode, an experience that I thought could overwhelm him and that ended up being the opposite, a very comfortable, accessible and above all very fun afternoon. The Braking Point 2 mode is a hit, since, apart from pure and hard competition, its objective game system, beyond being among the first, makes the experience very interesting as well as satisfying to play. If we add all this to the drama that the rival protagonists experience behind the scenes in a television documentary plan and the recovery of characters from season 1, the final result is a most interesting cocktail. Special mention of its large number of game modes, both competitive and cooperative, in addition to the use of driver and team licenses, a mixture that results in an amalgamation that makes this game a very good sports experience, if not the best, of F1 , simply the definitive simulator of this genre. A game that becomes essential in any library of sports game lovers and whose only drawback is the poor facial animations of some of its characters, which are overshadowed by the spectacular visual aspect of the single-seaters, the true protagonists of this title. , together with the micropayment rate, an incomprehensible practice and that despite being cosmetic additions, are only accessible with real money instead of in-game. In short, a game that will give us many hours of fun with its numerous game modes and its multiplayer (online and offline).
