Review: F1 22 adds as much as it takes away
DISCLOSURE: Chris appeared as one of many background tannoy announcers in F1 2021, and that audio has been reused in F1 22.

F1 22 is the best game in the series, but not by a distance. The improved handling and supercar challenges are cancelled out by the lack of a story mode and the superfluous new F1 Life mode, making for a game that gives as much as it takes away.

  • The best F1 handling to date
  • The 40 supercar challenges are fun, and aren't locked behind microtransactions
  • Career mode changes keep the game up to date
  • The new F1 Life mode is little more than a virtual furniture gallery
  • The lack of a new story mode is disappointing
