The intention behind the 2012 edition of Codies' now-annual racing sim was to create a more accessible Formula 1 game, a game that fans of other racing titles could pick up and play without being confused by talk of Buttons, qualifying laps and Vettells. To that end, F1 2012 features a Young Driver Test mode - essentially a tutorial for those not used to the distinctive handling and racing style of F1.
Season Challenge mode, meanwhile, comprises a shorter ten-race season, which may be of interest if you don't have time for the comparatively massive main event. Accessibility aside, you can now go head-to-head with Formula 1 favourites such as Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Räikkönen and Michael Schumacher, though race-fixing (unlike with real F1) is sadly not allowed.
