Worth noting: the lowest score is from Eurogamer and they checked out the PS3 version. Let’s see what they have to say:
But for all the pleasure it provides, it’s never quite enough to shift F1 2012 away from the sense that this is another minor update, and one that’s guilty of making some of the main mistakes of its predecessors while even exaggerating others. The penalty system’s been improved for F1 2012 – overtake a driver by cutting a corner and, in theory, you’ll be given time to grant the position back, while there’s now even the optional inclusion of the pit-line exit rule – but it’s as erratic as ever in implementation, while a couple of graphical glitches marred a season’s worth of play. Bizarrely – and most painfully for someone who spends much of his life wanting to be Kimi Raikkonen – the ability to take an existing driver through an entire season has now been excised completely.
Seems the game is scoring higher on X360 than on PS3.
