The new classic content ultimately doesn’t soar quite high enough to justify purchase alone for F1 2012 owners but, combined with the well-honed existing content, F1 2013 is a very complete and satisfying package overall. Yearly devotees will be less blown away than new fans, or ones returning from a year or two away from the series, but F1 2013 is the most definitive distillation of the motorsport to date.80

Dedicated series fans might feel somewhat aggrieved, then, that they're being asked to spend a further £10 just to augment that slim offering with 90s content, particularly as it's those hardcore fans who likely feel the tug of nostalgia the hardest.

While it doesn’t make an astounding first impression, and the F1 Classics mode isn’t as big as you might think, F1 2013 is a fine F1 game. There are enough assists and game modes to cover everyone from F1 fanatics to more casual fans, and the action on the track is fast and visceral, with no shortage of high-speed thrills.80

Il suo immobilismo viene scosso anno dopo anno da introduzioni azzeccate, ma è impossibile non notare che le stesse problematiche continuano a riproporsi edizione dopo edizione senza essere risolte. Il tutto a scapito della voglia di realismo del gioco.85

With gorgeous visuals and exciting racing action, it’s a wholly enjoyable and supremely satisfying Formula One experience. There’s always the chance that some hardcore players will feel more at home with something more focused on strict simulation, but this is a marvelously high-octane experience for F1 newcomers and veterans alike.90

Chi invece ha apprezzato F1 2012 e si accontenta di un'evoluzione a piccoli passi, proceda pure in tutta tranquillità a un acquisto invece praticamente obbligato per chi adora la F1 e non ha mai posseduto uno dei titoli precedenti.80

It's a fitting way to conclude current-gen F1, polishing the contemporary and reflecting on the old before the next-gen version inevitably brings in the new in 2014. It’s a touching ode to an era when Formula One was truly magical. So if ever you thought racing cars were cool as a kid, you need to play F1 2013. Somehow they’ve become even cooler.90
