Video Game: Grid 2 (PC)

Grid 2 is a sequel to the Codemasters Race Driver Grid video game. Codemasters’ driving games always have excellent car handling and this new Grid 2 isn’t any different. It is fantastic to drive. The car handling feels like a combination of realism and arcade. Car behaviour feels realistic, but the car control is still quite easy. For example, it is possible to make long drifts around the corner, but if you let the tail go too wide, you will spin. Driving speeds are fast and situations come quickly on a narrow city track. Hitting the walls or other cars causes damage, which has effect on your car’s handling and performance. So you have to be careful with your driving lines.

In addition to the official Formula One racing game, Codemasters has also created a kart racing game based on the Formula One with real drivers and tracks. Actually the F1 Race Stars is like a cartoon miniature version of the Formula One. The game includes all the 2012 F1 teams and drivers as cartoon versions, plus two fictional teams. You can choose any team and driver. There are no differences in performance, but each team has a bonus feature, like an extra boost.

Video Game: F1 2012 (PC)

The 2012 version of the official Formula One racing game features all 12 teams, 24 drivers and the 20 grand prix circuits of the 2012 F1 season. Completely new addition is the Circuit of the Americas in Texas, and also the Hockenheim circuit returns to the calendar. The game looks good, sounds great and the changing weather conditions bring nice variation to the racing weekend. The great handling makes the F1 car enjoyable to drive, and without any driving aids, it can also be quite challenging.

Video Game: F1 2010 (PC)

F1 2010 is not just a Formula One game, it’s a Formula One racing driver simulator. Luckily, in the game you don’t have to start your racing driver career from the beginning, but you get to join straight away in of the the F1 teams as a second driver. Naturally, you can’t get to a top team until you have proven your skills, so you have work your way up. As this is officially licensed F1 game, there are real F1 teams, real F1 tracks and real F1 drivers to race with. I joined the Lotus and got Jarno Trulli as my team mate. Apparently Mr. Kovalainen had to leave and give his position to me. Sorry about that Heikki.

Video Game: Colin McRae Dirt 2 (PC)

Another hairpin turn approaches fast. Tight braking with a quick turn and the car is in controlled four wheel slide. A bit more gas and the car’s front end almost touches the inside wall of the track when sliding beautifully through the bend. When the straight opens up, the gas pedal is on the floor and the car continues it’s slide heading towards the next bend and a the next challenge.
