I gave the first stage a quick run through.

First impressions... urrrgggghhhh. It ain't pretty. Physics seem hmmm, wierd but ok. Might take a bit of getting use too, not instantly gratifying like other racers... I'll hold judgment until I spend more time with it.

I'll give it another chance tomorrow night.

Have we been spoiled by Dirt's sparkles and sunbeams?

Anyone bought this? I'm keen to hear your thoughts, is the game better than the demo?

Played it, its all floaty in the corners and solid on the straight, has no "feel" to it. The Demo has served its purpose...I won't be buying it.

I quite liked the demo; the driving felt more "natural" than Dirt 2's silly thing where the car magically stuck on the track, though it was mysteriously hard to spin the car or lose control at all, really. There were some annoyances I had with the resetting and the damage and everything. I'd play the whole game if it was free but I'm not going to pay for it

I do like the graphics though, very much. Best looking car game I've played lately, though I haven't played any since Forza 3 and Dirt 2...
