VSG Recommendation: Play It
Critics Consensus: F1 2021 is a great racing game, adding to the series’ win streak with another strong iteration. The Breaking Point story mode lacks a compelling narrative, but the overall racing experience offers a mind-blowing amount of polished and entertaining content. The F1 series is a rare instance of an annual sports game that has continued to improve with every release.

An entertaining and surprisingly effective new story mode heads up an otherwise modest refresh for Codemasters’ official series.

F1 2021 is the best-looking and most customisable instalment of series so far and, while it’s a little plain, the new story mode is a well-executed and fun new addition.

Another superlative simulation of the Formula One world, now with an enjoyable story mode too.
