Top Critic Average
F1 2019 is a very, very good game – the best F1 game to date – but it definitely doesn't always seem like a new game.
The introduction of F2 and a suite of small improvements elsewhere make for a thrillingly authentic take on motorsport's top-flight.
F1 2019 retains immaculate handling and visuals while adding cinematic spectacle and junior series racing.
A slick sequel with promising, if shallow, career mode improvements. But it’s moving in the right direction and not far off achieving elite status.
Whether guiding your car, career, or league, F1 2019 has plenty of options to keep you covered and entertained
F1 2019's fast and strategic racing elevates it to the top step of the podium.
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).
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.
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.
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.
