The PS5 is the best PS4 ever made.

The difference between Spider-man: Remastered and Spider-man: Mile Morales running at 30fps and 60fps is unbelievable. You can switch between graphics modes right in the games which really shows the difference between the two.

I also tried my PS4 version of The Show 20 and it looks great too. The improved frame rates makes it look and feel like a new game. If you hid the menus, I'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between this version and the next-gen 22 version running on my Series X.

I couldn't agree more with this, but I've never understood why people get excited for game soundtracks. I'm also not interested in playing a soap opera in my sports games. EA must know better than me since they include it in all of their games now.

I'm mainly interested in seeing how my track times compare to F1 2021. The cars still seemed glued to the track, so I want to see if that equates to faster lap times for me since I was always concerned about sliding out around corners in 2021.

A Codemasters F1 game launching with a multitude of peculiar issues at launch is pretty much par for the course. More confusing, to me at least, is how many of those issues get patched out a while after launch, only to come back again next year. For example, have a look back through the last few years and see if you can find the last game that didn't launch with an issue along the lines of "quick practice/short qualifying sessions wear your engine out too much" or that hardy perennial, All Of Our Safety Cars Are Broken.

Usually, though, there are plenty of perceptible improvements that help you (fine: help me...) justify your purchasing decision. This year, I can't find them. The driving model is similar to 2021 but less fun, cars being a bit more ponderous in fast corners and massively harder to launch off slow corners. I care not one bit about F1 Life or a licenced EDM soundtrack, which was the feature request on nobody's lips when EA took over Codies. Under the right circumstances I could be made to care about the inclusion of supercars, but there's no depth, excitement or nuance to the way they handle, so I don't.

None of that is to say the game is bad. It's not bad. It is, however, worse than F1 2021, which is where I'd be sending anyone wanting their single-seater racing fix.

I never buy third-party accessories, but I'm seriously considering taking a chance on these side plates for only $19: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B097XXCVKC/

I'm revisiting the F1 2022 trial now that a bunch of patches have been released and the graphical issues I had initially seem to have been fixed.

Nothing will change until the NFL pulls the license from EA or lets other companies use it too.

Sell it through her account if she has good rating. You can vett a buyer and meet on your terms. I'd think about taking Paypal or Venmo, as well.

I haven't been on FB since 2016, but my wife still is and has sold some things through their marketplace, so I may give that a try.
