DRS-enabled overtakes, tyres that delaminate under the strain of harsh language, and the metronomic predictability of Seb Vettel smirking atop the podium at the end of each race weekend – it’s unlikely that anyone but the finger-waggling Red Bull driver himself will go on to call the latest season a ‘classic’. But what of F1 2013?

F1 2013 PS3 SCREENSHOT

Codemasters has unveiled F1 2013, to no-one’s surprise. But among the usual list of tweaks, minor additions and improvements comes an all-new mode that brings legendary drivers in their iconic cars back into the game, along with a handful of retired but treasured tracks. For an annual release series, it’s a surprisingly substantial addition.

F1 2013′s here and this year the twist is classic cars, like this 1988 Williams. And I’m not being clever here, knowing the car, that’s just the name of the screenshot.

GRID 2 ps3 review

When this lofty racer’s prequel arrived like some sort of clever car simile in 2008, it sculpted the shape and form of racing on this generation. If every game since hasn’t nabbed its Flashbacks, HUD indicators showing tailing opponents, and team management component, it’s only because it’d be so flippin’ obvious if they did. So when Grid 2 arrives in a shorter skirt, promising much the same only now with…

Yeah, you read that right. Codemasters has just announced its beyond opulent Special Edition of Grid 2, which comes with a flipping BAC Mono decked out in Grid livery, a day at the BAC factory, a helmet and race suit, and a PlayStation 3.

GRID 2 PS3

Here’s a new GRID 2 video from Codemasters which gives you the car equivalent of a burlesque show – a flash of an Alpha Romeo Giulietta here, the briefest glimpse of the RedBull Ring (previously the A1 ring) there… then nothing. Darkness. Oh, and a polite reminder to preorder the thing before it’s released on May 31st. You know, it’s not a crazy idea. We’ve played the game, and we’re big fans.

F1 Race Stars ps3 review

One look at the gurning representations of motorsport’s biggest names tells you everything you need to know about F1 Race Stars. Like a co-worker with a spinning bow tie, it goes to great lengths not to be taken seriously. It may be splattered with the sponsor logos of prime formula racing, but it’s proud to be a kart racer – now kindly give us our biscuit for avoiding the ‘under the bonnet’ cliché.

Formula 1 is an arms race. Seasons are won and lost in wind tunnels and on design sheets as much as they are on Curva Parabolica and Becketts. For everyone who doesn’t get to sit in the car, it’s a desperate, unending double-shift of iteration and reiteration, testing and retesting. A process that Codemasters Birmingham will feel very familiar with now, having emerged from another off-season to produce an annual offering bristling with shiny new aero parts and barely legal rear diffusers.
