EA Sports F1 22 game is available for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, as well as for the Playstation 4 and PS5 consoles, as well as Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. Steam shows that the first buyers do not give the racing game of Codemasters a good testimony. At the time of writing the article, the rating was above reviews in the balanced range (56 percent). Among other things, several bugs are responsible for the false start. Above all, the new adaptive AI creates a dichotomy.
Adaptive AI causes frustration & bugs from F1 2021 are still present
For some drivers, the AI is too aggressive, others come, and others like it the way it is. In the area of safety cars, computer drivers behave unnecessarily slowly, making it almost impossible to catch up. In the test, which we carried out together with our colleagues from PC Games, there was also criticism of the AI. After all, the difficulty level can be set to 100 levels. Annoying are bugs, in connection with the now existing safety car.
Thus, the AI can “ghost” through the SC and is disqualified. Sometimes AI drivers have an accident by driving in a safe car. As with our test drives, Steam users also report graphics errors in rain races, so that you can no longer see anything through white stripes. After all, some players like the new handling of the F1 race cars, and the game runs stable.
Some bugs from one of the first versions of the predecessor F1 2021 game are still in the F1 22 game although these bugs have now been fixed by a patch from F1 2021.
For example, there is illogically high engine wear in training if you simulate free training. Some steering wheels do not work, although these are officially considered supported flounces. Occasionally, the track boundary “glitched” into the track and caused a number of accidents.
There are no points for research & development if you have had an engine failure. In some sprint races, the entire AI runs out of fuel. The PC version has for the first time a VR mode with support for HTC Vive & Co.
However, graphics errors and lags spoil the fun in VR. At prices between 60 and 80 euros, there are still too many bugs in EA Sports F1 22 game for some players. In the test of the PC Games, the traction control also caused balancing problems. The career mode has been almost unchanged for three years and the new game mode F1 Life offers only a highly dubious added value, in that in addition to sports cars, money can be spent on cosmetic items.
Collection on the opinion of Steam users on F1 22:
Meanwhile, EA Sports F1 22 game is available, but players are quite critical of the new racing game from Codemasters. For some drivers, the AI is too aggressive, others come, and others like it the way it is. In combination with the safety car, bugs occur again and again. So the AI can ghost through the SC and is disqualified.
Codemasters has taken over some bugs from the predecessor F1 2021 game. There can be unrealistically high engine wear when simulating training.
Some steering wheels do not work, although these are officially considered supported flounces.
Exclusively for the PC version, there is support for VR headsets, but graphics errors and lags spoil the gaming fun.
Consequently, the F1 22 game – at the time of article creation – is only balanced, as there are simply too many inconsistencies.
Codemasters and Electronic Arts unveil “16 Miles with Charles Leclerc” to celebrate the release of EA SPORTS F1 22
Codemasters and Electronic Arts today released EA SPORTS F1 22 game, the official game of the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin and Steam.
This year’s game features new revolutionary cars designed for tighter and more exciting races, major rule changes with the inclusion of F1 Sprint, the introduction of the Miami International Autodrome, and track updates in Spain, Australia, and Abu Dhabi.
To celebrate the launch, EA SPORTS has teamed up with Scuderia Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc to provide a unique insight into the life of a top Formula 1 driver.
F1 22 game brings significant technological innovations, including revised physics, handling, and tire models that accurately reflect the real changes in the sport. The game introduces Adaptive AI, a setting that adjusts the difficulty level of AI competitors by adjusting their speed and competitiveness so that new players always remain in the heat of battle.
VR is also making its debut on PC, offering the most realistic F1 experience on the track to date. Now fans can experience the adrenaline rush from the cockpit in single-player mode or with their friends in multiplayer mode.
The game increases the authenticity of racing by introducing interactive and cinematic features, such as immersive and broadcast options for pit stops, formation laps, and safety car phases. F1 22 game also features audio changes, including the re-recording and expansion of commentary teams in multiple regions, a dynamic soundscape, and for the first time in the series’ history a licensed soundtrack with a global roster of electronic and dance artists.
The game introduces F1 Life, a new customizable social hub that gives players a view of an F1 driver off the track. In this personal space, which acts as a multiplayer lobby, fans can showcase their collection of supercars, fashion, accessories, and trophies earned by completing in-game challenges, leveling up in the Podium Pass, branded store, and in-game store.
The eight supercars bring new gameplay challenges, such as drifts and duels, and can be driven on the track in the Pirelli Hot Lap feature, which recreates the early part of the race weekend.
In addition to all the exciting innovations in the game, F1 22 expands its features with the return of My Team, now with three starting points, the celebrated 10-year career with two-player functionality, and multiplayer with an offline split-screen.
