How good was f1 2010 overall?

does 2011 look better? would you recommend a purchase?

F1 2010 was an unfinished rushed product with only one patch that added more bugs while trying to solve others...F1 2011 could be looked at as patch 2 for F1 2010.. expect one patch for any issues in F1 2011 before they abandon it and you, and start work on F1 2012.

alright, poor support. but is the game good? or was it completely broken?

As a game, its ok, but falls short of what it was aiming for. Leaving the support issues out of it (for me they are a big issue though) I play mainly racing games, though more on the sim side, but Id say the game (2010) would get a 7 out of 10, .. Maybe they will improve with F1 2011, but I wont be purchasing it to find out.

Whether it's a good game is down to opinion. If you are a fan of F1, and you don't mind a little bit of arcade in your sim game, then yeah it's decent.

Plus you can count in the fact that it has a strong modding community behind it that can allow you to get stuff like HD textures, better lighting, ect....

F1 2010 is the best driving experience I've had on a PC, and I've played almost every driving game out there (mostly sims).

Yes the initial bugs, especially tyres randomly exploding and getting held up in the pits was VERY annoying, but it was in fact fixed in the first patch..contrary to what the haters say. Still it has other minor issues that didn't get patched, but they didn't negatively affect the gameplay enough to matter.

What was surprising for me and an absolutely joy, coming from a sim background, was the superb handling and physics which are supposed to be improved in 2011. In my opinion they found the perfect balance between arcade and sim.
