(out right now) is probably the most hardcore racing sim available today, and since F1 doesn't really have an impact in the United States, it doesn't even have a large fanbase to fall back on here. However, no racing game looks as intense to me when seen in action as F1 2011
. So I guess if you can't attract them with a name, then attract them with the gameplay, right? It's working. I know nothing about F1 aside from the fact the Jeremy Clarkson loves it and occasionally F1 drivers go on Top Gear to drive their silly joke car around the test track; however, when I see a video for F1 2011
, it makes me want to run out and play it. So I guess they're doing something right.
