Review: I’m going to be honest here and tell you that I am not an F1 racing fan. All I know for sure is that this game looks simply incredible and in terms of F1 racing it is THE because looking F1 game in VR by a country mile. It has all the racing options you will need from online to local, LAN and shared screen. If you play this game in VR with a gamepad you will be blown away by just how realistic it feels. As I have already said I’m no F1 fan, but this is a pretty amazing-looking game with all the 2022 season’s cars, drivers and fixtures. Does the VR suck? Yes, but that won’t stop hardcore fans from loving it.

Much like almost every other racing game with a VR option bolted onto this side of it “F1 22” isn’t for VR fans, its for “F1 22” fans so they can make the game feel as realistic as possible. It’s nauseating as hell and most of the game simply isn’t playable in VR and besides you can’t even use the motion controllers as you might have liked. But if you have a real-world steering wheel and want to go that extra step this is the way to go about it. But if you get this gaming hoping for a VR racing game built from the ground up for VR you will be bitterly disappointed.
