The demo for the 360 version is out now, the PC demo is scheduled for tomorrow the 11th and the PS3 demo for the day after, the 12th. I'm not bothering with the demo since I have it pre-ordered. I post this info because I'm not sure which system the one other person on the forum has who is interested in this game  icon_wink

I had got the two previous editions of Codemaster's F1 game and was very pleased. As a forty year fan of F1 (OMG! it's 42 actually) I'm deeply into the technical side of the series and Codemasters really does a great job on this. Last year's game had KERS and DRS that were so well implemented that as a player I could actually sense the difference not only in performance, but in the environment of the car. Tire selection is well modeled, weather is awesome (Monaco in the rain!) and the range of assists allows the game to be adaptable to players of all skill levels. My only complaint, really more of a "I wish this was in the game", is that they only include the tracks from the current year in the game. I'd even pay for DLC if I could add tracks like Turkey that were in the past two editions but aren't in 2012.

Anyone want to go in on the 2-pack PC version of this?  Steam has it for $74.99 for 2 copies vs. $44.99 for a single copy.

Sorry, my rig won't run it worth a darn, so I'm getting the 360 version.

I did break down and play the demo, which shows off two new features. One is the Young Drivers Test, a series of tutorial films and lessons to try. Only day one of the two days is in the demo, the second day apparently consists of dry and wet running.

The other is the Season Challenge. This feature bridges the gap between running single races and the full twenty race Career season. It has in the demo just one race at Monza, with single lap qualifying and then a shortened race. Supposed there are ten races in the Season Challenge. An interesting twist is that before the start of the challenge you pick a rival driver and each race you try to do better than him. The uber players can go against Vettel or Hamilton; me, I'm just trying to beat Karthikeyan nod

Got F1 2012 for the 360 today. I'm taking a break from Borderlands 2 to peek at the game. It drops me into the Young Drivers Test, which I already did in the demo, but I'm doing it again with the Ferrari icon_biggrin. I want to have a look at the new Circuit of the Americas in Austin before I go back to BL2.
