Warning: Do not buy at the moment

game is nearly unplayable thanks to an insane ammount of bugs and overall bad game design
the devs are working on fixing the problems, but RTM and pole position 2010 (the 2 predecessors) are still in a jarate-poor state, so don't expect too much from their fixing attempts.
actually: PP12 could easily be an add-on for RTM/patch for PP10

I don't find it to be a bad game at all, it's not great (there really needs to be some sort of feedback during/after the races), but's decent enough.

Thanks for the warning.

One question as I am really interested in buying this game. Is there any word from the developers on when is it reasonable to expect the bug fixes?

The bug fixes have already been applied, even if the version number doesn't update on the launcher. The freezing was solvable for myself and a few other people by forcing the game into using a single core.

What indications did you get that proved you have the latest version if the launcher tells porkies?

Yeah I am pretty angry about this - I bought this thinking oh great finally an F1 manager sim!

And then I saw the MetaCritic rating which is appalling, and then I tried to play it! What an ABSOLUTE waste of money and I think Steam shouldn't include games like this if it's so buggy and unfinished!

Maybe this will remind you to check metacritic before actually buying a game you never heard of.

But, you can ask steam for a one time refund which will remove your game and put the money in your steam wallet

Because there was a bug where your car couldn't be overtaken during a pit stop. This doesn't happen anymore.

To compliment the first 2 posters, don't buy this game. I play all sorts of text based managerial games from Steam available Football Manager to Out of the Park Baseball. This game is at best an alpha shell. It has some of the bits needed for a good managerial game, but its almost unplayable. I can get it to run, and even do a few things, but it requires a lot of intuition. Even with intuition, you get screwed often unless you save before nearly every decision you make.

For example, let's say you finally figured out how to order an engine and appoint your drivers. Now you want to do a test drive. Not too hard to pick a track and enter the test drive interface. Hit the green button and the cars go; except they have no fuel. So after the cars quit running in 3 laps and less than 10 minutes into the 60 minute test, you now have to run the remaining 50 minutes to get back to an interface to reload your game and try again. The only saving grace is that you can speeed up the 50 minutes, or ctrl-alt-delete out of the game. So the game is reloaded and try the game. You pit, add fuel, but good luck figuring out how to change tires. You can change the type of tire and thus get fresh tires. But if you want the same type, there's no means to ask for them. If you don't do this, then the fuel you added will get you past 3 laps, but about ten laps later your car will stop when the tires fail. Once again, you have about 40 minutes left to go in the test drive.

If you want to pay to be a beta tester, whose comments will likely be ignored; then buy this game.
