So, F1 2010 is pretty good, then. After it rocked Official PlayStation Magazine's socks to the point of a 9/10 review, GamesMaster has now given its verdict - and it's more good news for Codemasters.
In a praise-filled two-page evaluation - complete with splendid 90% score - GM heaps particular applause on F1 2010's career mode, dynamic weather effects and 'hardcore options', which include the possibility to tackle 70-lap races.
GM writes: 'Attending press conferences and interviews, exploring the paddock area and in-team competition between drivers makes [F1 2010] one of the first F1 games to make players feel like a driver rather than a car.'
The mag adds that it's 'delighted' with the officially licensed game's handling, which is says offers a 'huge amount of precision'.
A minor gripe is raised due to the lack of safety cars - and that it's not the most accessible game on four wheels.
But as writer Shaun Curnow says of people that don't understand the intricacies of F1: 'This game isn't for those people.' Quite.
Want even more praise? You goddit.
'F1 2010 delivers the finest, most all encompassing F1 racer on console,' GM concludes.
A must buy for F1 fans, it seems - so long as they're ready to give it the dedication it deserves.
F1 2010 is released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in the UK on September 24.
