Top Critic Average
F1 2019 is great and an absolutely essential tour de force for Formula fans. The cars react as they should, the courses look as you’d expect. It’s everything you’d hope for and more. This is the best Formula 1 game to date and with F2, it builds some exciting foundations for the future.
When what you deliver works on multiple levels, you do not go looking to reinvent the wheel, but rather improve on what is there and branch off into different areas, which is exactly what Codemasters has done. F1 2019 will instantly be one of the top racers in your rotation of racing games, and the depth and options the game provides make F1 an absolute must-buy for all fans of the genre.
All sports video games are educational in some way; even MLB The Show will teach me new things about hitting every year. But the video game that both educates me and develops me as a fan of the sport is really doing its job, regardless of the visuals and gameplay fidelity (which are still take-it-for-granted impeccable in F1 2019).
F1 2019 has so many improvements, changes, and a overall fantastic feel. It doesn’t make you feel like anything was left out, and the extra DLC is just that – this is value-packed offering. Codemasters have blurred the lines between broadcast and gameplay, and it offers immersion on a whole new level. The interspersed drama heightens the stakes in all the right ways. F1 2019 is the spectacle it should be, just like its real-life counterpart. This is the best it’s ever been.
I love F1. It’s been a passion of mine since the, and the same can be said for the games that release. From Bizzare Creations to EA and then to Codemasters the games have been a mixed bag but over the last few years, the career mode, gameplay and presentation have been second to none. Can F1® 2019 improve yet again? The answer is yes, without a doubt.
Overall the game is fantastic, another great iteration into the F1 franchise, and once again Codemasters have done themselves proud with a game of this calibre. F1 2019 receives the Thumb Culture Platinum Award!
it does have more to offer, but because Codemasters have been getting the simulation style of racing right for a couple of years now, there isn’t a vast amount they needed to improve on, other than cosmetically, but what has been improved is just about noticable.
F1 2019 continues to be a great racing game for the Formula 1 fan, but as the years go by, each new version of the game only looks more "updated", without any major change. Codemasters did a great job in F1 2019 but it's worrying how everything looks so equal to the 2018 version, except for some punctual additions that differ the game from previous versions.

F1 2019 does an amazing job, once again, at making you feel like an actual Formula 1 driver, and the attention to detail is what has always set this franchise apart. The inclusion of F2 into the F1 campaign is fantastic, but it would be great to see it extended.
Codemasters manages to improve its already good F1 2018. With Formula 2, a completely new game element is added and also the improved career mode is just fun. The graphics are as usual contemporary and the multiplayer offers weeks of challenges until all tracks and vehicles are mastered.

For F1 fans, the improvements and new content found in F1 2019 make it an absolute must-buy. It’ll feel familiar in many ways, but everything is just so polished and refined that it won’t bother you all that much.
F1 2019 is a must have for fans of racing and sports games alike. Easily the most complete package in the F1 catalogue to date, you’ll be uncovering new things to do all the time. This is the kind of game that you can get lost in and forget about all the other great games being released.
F1 2019 brought enough upgrades to make this sufficient enough for the annual update. Leagues, the F2 series, the ability to finally save replay highlights and tweaking the racing to perfection makes this another must-own for fans.
F1 2019 encompasses the breadth of experiences, car choices, track choices that provide a far deeper experience for the player than would be available in a generic sim. That depth truly demonstrates the complexity of not only the hardware, but the ever-changing conditions during a race.
Simply put, F1 2019 is fantastic. There’s enough here to take you well into next season (and beyond), while the Career Mode has finally shaken off the cobwebs to emerge as a genuinely thrilling highlight that players will pump hours and days into.
F1 2019 is yet another excellent racer developed by Codemasters. With a wealth of positives, such as the improved feel of the racing, as well as how great the game looks and a number of new gameplay features, the game was bound to shine. The minor negatives, such as new modes like the Senna/Prost challenges feeling shallow, are minor blips in what is an otherwise outstanding game.
F1 2019 is another exceptional racing game that caters to all spectrums of fans, giving you many modes, exhibition events and an exciting career mode to get familiar with its gorgeous tracks. It's simply one of the best simulation racers out there, again.
F1 2019 raises the bar once again for F1 games. Whilst more hardcore racers will still prefer something like iRacing or Assetto Corsa, casual players and F1 fanatics will wholeheartedly enjoy their time here, regardless of their skill level.
The latest F1 game, is the best one yet in the series. This game has a lot to offer; from the story driven F2 challanges, to a massive career mode and an engaging multiplayer experience, everything is in the right place in this game. There's content for any type of racing fan and you'll find yourself somewhat satisfied throughout be the whole journey.

F1 2019 is a fantastic racing title whether you're a fan of the sport or not. Despite my reservations and perceived lack of improvements I've been proven wrong at almost every turn. Codemasters have done the licence and series proud and look forward now to next year's edition and what it might bring especially with new consoles on the horizon.
Another solid entry into the F1 franchise for Codemasters. It's nice to see them expanding the game to represent how drivers work their way up into the F1 roster from the F2 feeder series. Being able to build your driver up from (an albeit short) F2 career really lends credence to the story of your driver making their way up through the ranks.
Excellence in Formula One. That's what comes to mind when it comes to summarize the qualities of F1 2019. Extremely complete, very well thought out at all levels, this 2019 edition has everything to seduce. Whether you are a motor sports enthusiast or a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed. Gentlemen, start your engines!

Codemasters continuously strives to make their F1 franchise even bigger and better than ever and with this year’s installation, it feels like a huge success. For all of the fans of the F1 series, both the video game version and that which you see on the TV, this is your game. For all the hardcore racing gamers who love to geek out over the various different cars, the realistic tracks, and put the pedal to the metal, this is your nirvana.
Codemasters has retouched just enough to improve a saga that is already very good. Small adjustments and inclusions that will delight the most veteran and will make the disbursement of this year deserved.

Ten years after getting the license, Codemasters keeps showing its commitment with Formula 1. Thanks to the small improvements here and there, F1 2019 is one of the most complete Formula 1 games ever made.

A great racing game that doesn't improves a lot over previous iterations of the franchise but does small advancement that will satisfy almost every F1 fan out there.

F1 2019 had a shorter development cycle than the previous entries in the series, but despite that, Codemasters has managed to improve the franchise in every single way. If you're a fan of motorsports and you don't have any F1 games in your library, this is the best time to fix that. Formula 1 games have never been better.

Once again Codemasters brings home the cup when it comes to racing simulators. Their years of experience and their access to the many facets of the license are there to be seen on the screen. The latest game in the F1 series is once again a must have for both F1 fans and those that enjoy the deepest of racing sims.
F1 2019 adds the FIA Formula 2 race cars and some minor improvements to the celebrated formula of its official racer, plus the epic rivalry between Senna and Prost in the Legends Edition of the game. An episode which is more about new contents than structural changes. And that is okay.

F1 2019 is the best release in the series so far, but the iterative design of the franchise combined with Codemasters' trademark care and attention for racing makes that perhaps unsurprising.
While F1 2019 adds features from the all-time bucket list of many an F1 fan, these new additions aren't quite fully formed yet. This still managed to be the best Formula 1 game by Codemasters to date – the handling of the F2 cars and new online modes are genre defining – but there is always scope for further improvements and some areas are now beginning to feel a little stale. Video gamers can be so demanding sometimes.
F1 2019 is without a doubt the definitive Formula 1 gaming experience. With upgrades and improvements made to practically every aspect of the game, F1 2019 looks stunning, and gives driving enthusiasts plenty to get to grips with.
As a racing simulation, F1 2019 builds the perfect balance of a real-world racing experience and cultivating a budding racing career. Learning each race and planning a strategy is as important as feeling the race first hand, and that is a major success when it comes to simulation racers. The long races may not appeal to everyone, and some of the tracks get especially monotonous, but for your moneys worth, F1 2019 is the Formula One racing game to beat.
F1 2019 is solid, and the most complete entry in the series yet, but it could have become the best F1 simulator in history of video games if the developers would have taken full advantage of its potentials.

Even though it’s just 10 months since F1 2018’s launch, F1 2019 feels like a step forward. It adds improved visuals, a beefed up online multiplayer component, and an enjoyable light story to a great base that already boasted phenomenal racing mechanics.
With all that being said the dense career mode, weekly online events, and the upcoming inclusion of the 2019 F2 season will have me coming back to this game long after the official F1 season is over.
Codemasters have managed to improve their F1 game once again in 2019, and have added another entire echelon of cars and drivers from the F2 proving ground. The racing itself looks and plays faultlessly and is accessible enough for beginners and non-F1 fans.
F1 2019 is another good annual release of the series, designed to work out the license and please the most loyal fans. If you are one of them, you can safely buy this game. Beginners who want to try it, can also buy, as well as those who have not played games in the series for a long time. But if you joined to the series last year and are not a fan, the improved graphics and F2 championship will not particularly justify the purchase. In this case, it is easier to wait for the next sale-out.

While an exciting sim on its own, F1 2019 does the bare minimum to qualify as a brand new outing. There are no breakthroughs this year, so unless you're a hardcore fan, those just looking for a great F1 racing experience can safely pit stop to last year's version.
F1 2019 is another fine simulation of its class. The game does exactly what it has to do and that is, of course, the feeling of speed and skill. The series is in need of some innovation here and there, but at the same time, I wonder what more can be done.
F1 2019 takes all the elements of the previous games and adds a very thin layer of polish. The introduction of F2 makes Career Mode a little more exciting, and the racing gameplay and graphics are still top notch, but there's no getting away from the fact that this is really just F1 2018 again.
If I was to summarise F1 2019, it’s basically F1 2018 with a little more fan service thrown in for good measure. For some, that’s all they’ll have wanted and expected. For me, this year’s minor additions just weren’t enough.
