We check out the latest Formula One car games.

Given the fact that we all love our cars here in Britain, it's no surprise that the success of the latest Formula One car games for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 was the greatest within the British Isles. Developed by English studio Codemasters, Formula One 2010 was lauded by the video game and general media alike for being one of the more realistic representations of the game ever seen.

Whether you're a hardcore gamer or just someone who likes to dabble now and then, there's something on offer for you. The fantastic adjustable difficuly settings mean that you can opt to take part in short races of just a five or ten laps at a time, or go all out and try your hand at a full length Formula One season including regulation length races, qualifying sessions and practice sessions.

The level of realism on show here has to be seen to be believed, and the graphics are simply mind blowing. The in car view is as close as any of us will ever be able to get to being behind the wheel of an actual Formula One car, and if you're lucky enough to have a top quality driving wheel for your video game system, you'll be sucked right in and feel as if you're really there.

Unlike other games which feature soundtracks and music as you drive along, Formula One 2010 has opted for the more realistic approach, and the only sounds you'll hear apart from your engine is your team communicating with you via your hemlet headset.

It doesn't matter if you've never played a video game before in your life, if you're a fan of Formula One then you simply must get hold of this game! You can find it in your local game store for around £49.99.
