Has anyone played this yet? Thought the demo was quite good but not sure if I'd buy the full game.
I didn't like the free driving style. I think burnout is more suited to set pieces personally.
Absolutely love this game, got it friday, played a little single player but been playing lots of online, it's so easy to get online with ya friends, then set up races with check-points, and do team challenges, 3 of us last night, set up a challenge to go high up in the mountains and do a jump through a mountain eye, the actual starting point was miles away but it took you on a tiny verge opening up to a massive jump through the mountain with a view of the whole city below.
Or just freeburning around smashing into each other. I think the whole open city has made this game, so what if crash mode is changed and it's called showtime ( its not as good as crash mode), but all the challenges/races make up for it.
