In just a few hours we will see the launch of F1 Manager 2022 from Frontier Developments, in which we will lead our own Formula One team to victory. More and more reviews of the game are appearing online and it looks like we are dealing with a really solid game.
Was it worth the wait?
Before the game's release, many fans had concerns. After all, there were a lot of voices on the web from players who had the opportunity to get acquainted with the title earlier, suggesting that F1 Manager 2022 is simply an unfinished product.
Reviews published online, however, paint a very different picture. According to most journalists Frontier Developments' title is a great game that has problems, but nevertheless lives up to expectations.
Currently on Metacritic the title can boast a score of 84/100, while on OpenCritic the score is 85/100 (all critics recommend the game).
"From the ecstasy after finishing in the top ten to the agony after hitting the barrier - F1 Manager 2022 is a faithful recreation of motorsport. For better or for worse," writes The Independent
"F1 Manager 2022 is a deep managerial game for F1 lovers, with a lot of details to learn and explore in order to become the best and fastest team," writes Spaziogames
"If you love Formula 1 and sit at home on a Sunday afternoon thinking you could do a better job than Ferrari’s strategists, then this is the game for you," praises Dexerto
F1 Manager 2022 is a great look at what it means to be the head of a Formula One team. The game has tons of depth, and the use of real statistics makes the whole experience extremely authentic," informs But Why Tho?
Fans are divided
However, there is no denying the fact that for several days on the web you can also find numerous statements from fans, having a different opinion about the game. Players who have had the opportunity to play the title earlier, point out the many errors present in F1 Manager.
On Reddit you can find many posts presenting various bugs - from driving off the map, through the inability to reverse to incomprehensible AI behavior. Players also complain about the fact that the differences between different types of tires are too small, and that the "one pit stop" strategy is so effective that choosing any other is pointless.
All this makes some players think that the last year's Motorsport Manager is a much better game. It can't boast official licenses, but according to fans it offers a more realistic experience.
Some players suggest however, that F1 Manager 2022 is being treated too harshly. They believe that the bugs will be fixed, and that the game itself is already a ton of fun. It's clear that the production's biggest advantage is that it enables you to change the course of history and lead teams and drivers to victory who wouldn't normally have a chance to do so.
If you are also hoping for this in particular, you should seriously consider buying the game. It will be publicly available in just a few hours. F1 Manager 2022 will hit PC, PS4 and PS5, as well as Xbox One and Series S/X.
