What's F1 Manager 2022 like to play?
Samarth Kanal, F1.com Staff Writer: It's not only the granular attention to detail that strikes me about F1 Manager 2022, but the fact that the game offers immense replayability.
Choose a squad such as Williams and you'll face a serious challenge when it comes to scoring points and developing your car around major dilemmas: how do you squeeze the most out of your limited budget – and when should you turn your attention to next year's machine.
Start a new game as Ferrari's head honcho and you'll see that the challenge is completely different. It's not about managing your budget and the time of your engineers, but making sure you can harness the sheer resources at your disposal to beat your rivals.
At any team, seeing your upgrades work and your cleverly calculated strategy pay off is immensely rewarding.
F1 Manager 2022 is a thoroughly absorbing title that embraces the best bits of management and tycoon games. It's a fully realised Formula 1 playground with an impressive amount of depth and scope.
