F1 2016 was developed and published by Codemasters in 2016 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The racing game is inspired by the current Formula One season and overall it is the eighth title in the series. It adds several new features that savvy players will appreciate, without complicating matters for amateurs.
F1 2016 Gameplay
Codemasters made small changes to the F1 2016 gameplay, to appeal to long-term fans of the franchise. The game has a new formation lap and the preparations for the race are more complex and realistic. Players can now use manual starts and breaking on the pit lane, features that are also aimed at making the game more accurate.
The vehicles are fragile and require proper handling, because any contact can result in their untimely demise. F1 2016 features all the Formula One pilots as well as the cars they are driving on circuits worldwide. When overtaking fellow pilots and accelerating on straight lines, players should also factor in the new weather effects.
F1 2016 Graphics and Sounds
F1 2016 graphics were greatly enhanced, to accommodate the newly introduced weather effects. With cars being less durable and more likely to break down, the consequences of crashes are more obvious. The game benefits from the stellar commentary from Anthony Davidson and David Croft, with Rachel Weisz assuming the role of in-game agent.
F1 2016 is probably one of the best Formula One games, retaining the very essence of the genre and introducing new features. It delivers an accurate racing experience that makes players feel like they were actually driving on one of the 21 circuits. Codemasters came up with a massive upgrade in a game that proudly inherits the legacy of their F1 franchise.
