First Reviews: F1 2021 - Critics Praise New Features

The release F1 2021 is coming, and the first reviews of the game have already appeared online. Judging by the average on Metacritic, it looks like fans can rest easy.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  • The first reviews of F1 2021 have been released;
  • Critics praise the game for a great driving model and interesting new features;
  • Many reviewers believe that this is the best installment of the series to date.

Another season of Formula 1 is taking place this year, albeit it undergoes significant changes due to the ongoing pandemic. Fans of the queen of motorsports, who need at least a virtual return to normality, can instead look forward to the upcoming release of F1 2021. The game has already received first reviews and so far they are very positive.

On Metacritic, the PC version of the game achieved 85 points. The PS5 and Xbox Series X editions have 84 and 88 points respectively. Fans should also be pleased that the reviews based on versions from last-gen consoles present a similar level. So we are not dealing with significant differences in quality between the different editions.

Sample F1 2021 reviews:

  • TheXboxHub - 100/100
  • Areajugones - 95/100

Reviewers describe F1 2021 as the best installment of the series to date. It is supposed to contain all the best elements of the previous parts, and properly refined. Praise is directed primarily towards the driving model, which is to be a perfect combination of simulation and arcade style. New features introduced by Codemasters were also appreciated. A particularly good addition is the story mode titled Braking Point.

All players will be able to test the title in three days. The release of F1 2021 is scheduled for July 16.
