F1 2016 is an incredibly frustrating game, representing both a wonderful step forward and a massive false. serious technical problems, a shortage of game modes, and multiplayer that is functionally broken on the PC sour what is otherwise a great driving game. If you can get F1 2016 to run without crashing on your PC, and you’re happy to play in championship mode, this is a wonderfully fun driving game. But just like in Formula One, no matter how good your car feels around the track, it counts for nothing if you can not get past the checkered flag. Reliability is the key to the race, and now F1 2016 PC is too little.
The game also has no safety car – even the virtual safety car which was added to the season 2015. It is therefore more than a little strange to see a pile of four cars behind you arrive in Monaco, only for race to continue as if nothing happened. While in the game locks are more spectacular than ever, the car damage is too inconsistent. Ram at the back of another car, and your front wing is as likely to be totally insensitive because it realistic shattering into pieces.
