F1 2014 (video game)
|Engine||EGO Engine 3.0|
|Platform(s)||Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3|
F1 2014 is a racing video game based on the 2014 Formula One season developed and published by Codemasters. The game features the team and driver line-ups from the 2014 season, as well as the Red Bull Ring, Hockenheimring and the brand-new Sochi Autodrom. The game was going to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles but it was cancelled.
The game allows players to choose any team to drive for in Career Mode, rather than making the player start at a team lower down the grid and work their way up, as in other titles. The game does not feature Classic Content, a feature from the game's predecessor which allowed users to drive historic Formula One cars around historic tracks.
The game featured the initial driver line ups for the 2014 season, substitute drivers Will Stevens and André Lotterer, although all driving in FIA Formula One races during the 2014 season, were not included in the game.
Hardcore Gamer gave the game a 4 out of 5, saying "F1 2014 plays to its strengths and doesn’t get bogged down with clutter. While classic F1 races can’t be recreated this year, the career mode is a far more diverse and enjoyable experience. The racing action is more intense than ever before, leading this to be one of most enjoyable F1 games ever created."
