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.[citation needed]

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.

This was the last Formula 1 game released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Hardcore Gamer4/5[2]

The game received a mixed review from Eurogamer, citing lack of new features and uninspiring career mode.[3]

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."[2]
