I had time to get one more race in last nite (3rd race in career) and fought my way from 16th to 7th...this game will make you earn every place you fight for, and I am loving this challenge.

Hope everyone else gets their copy soon...might want to try Toys R Us as another option if your local BB/GS is dropping the ball on this one.

I'm doing a 5 season career to start, and went with BMW Sauber Ferrari (of course ). My only complaint so far (and this is super minor)... I wish they gave you the ability to truly design your own helmet graphics, basically like painting the cars in Forza 3.

The Singapore GP is this weekend, race is on Speed Channel at 7:30/8am EST Sunday morning. Check it out and you'll understand the game more - and vice versa.

Cool thanks for the headsup, I'll set the DVR for that. I totally agree with you on the helm choices, the selection is pretty lackluster haha.

All the BB's within 50 miles of me got 3 copies each today. Might be worth checking out in your neck of the woods.

(At least for the PS3, not sure about xbox)

i did a 3 season career to start, just because i was too excited to scroll to the other choices

but i picked Force India...sorry fellas, but the BMW Sauber sucks this year
Force India, and playing on 'easy' is a bit of a laugh, cause i can grab pole position by about 3 seconds and win races relatively easy. but this is a great starting point for now, and very easy to adapt

and yes, i HATE the helmet selection. The only decent looking helmet is Ant's helmet...i always liked his helmet design

anyone else getting the game for PS3??

there are only two copies w/in a 50 mile radius and I got one of them

hope the rest of you guys are able to find copies soon also

the only reason why I didnt take off work regardless is cause ive used up all my vacation hours except for two days, one day reserved for GT5 and the other for an emergency

just did my first 10 lap, technically 11 but the first was on expert and near impossible for me to drive. All i can say is the game is way worth the hassle of finding it.

Love the way the career mode is setup

+1 on the lack of helmets and my home country Perú, dont understand why they couldnt add all countries.

Yeah. I started on easy and all assists on (except braking).
Even just turning traction control down to "half" makes a noticeable difference! All the way off requires some very controlled throttle input.

I pre paid for mine at game stop. They text last night and I got it today. It is most likely the best game i've played. Going round Spa is epic. I dont know if I could do it with the controler. using a G25 wheel and pedal set up with seat. very very good

I'm a huge GT fan, and a F1 fan - Will this game be worthwhile when GT5 is out in just over a month??? Do you see yourself going back to it and playing after GT5?

hard to say since none of us have played GT5 but assuming it lives up to the hype I dont see myself playing F1 as much. But IMO its def worth getting it since I was dying for a good racing game watching all the previews to GT5

worse case, its something to hold you over till GT5 is out
