Tin Salamunic: Forget everything you know about racing games before playing Codemaster’s latest Formula 1 behemoth. F1 2013 is a vicious, frustrating, and incredibly rewarding racer that doesn’t shy away from confronting anyone who dares to hit the accelerator. This isn’t some focus-tested product designed to appeal to the casual gamer, nor is it something that can be easily played without proper training. Yes, “training.” You have to learn how to play F1 2013 before you can face other drivers. The steep learning curve may either completely turn off gamers or it may be the most welcoming experience in the genre. F1 2013 is hard, painfully hard, ruthlessly hard…but it’s as close to a Formula 1 simulator as you can get.
