    Oh this is brilliant! GET IT!! So much fun, just had some GP's with my girls in tow, they love it too.

    One of the tracks nearly made my eyes bleed. This is a good thing.

    I want this, but I HATE games that becomes unenjoyably difficult to the point that you never see yet alone reach the end of the game ...

    ... is this one of them?

    DUFFMAN seems to be a little bit weary about the last stretch (of the game) at the moment, which kind of confirms my fears.

    I wouldn't say its unenjoyably difficult. I can win pretty consistently on hard now I know the tracks and maybe 1/3 races on Expert. It's a shame you cant pick speed class and difficulty seperately in single race though.

    You do need to get a feel for the fastest routes, and where to slide to stand a chance though. AI can be strange sometimes too, they're fucking useless on the last track on harder difficulties, I won by nearly 2 minutes according to the end stats on Race of Ages hard. But they can be complete wankers with the powerups and sometimes they slow down suspisciously little when hit.

    It's 22.85 at Simplygames

    Does anyone else keep hearing "B class" as "meat flaps"?

    You pricks, stop making me want to buy this. Would I still enjoy it even as a friendless shut-in who abhors online gaming?

    Well, put it this way, it won't be as disappointing as Agent 47's latest outing!

    ... buy it.

    Only played a couple of games online. Single player is where it's at for me.

    Is the demo of this unrepresentative of the final game? I tried it last night and thought it was incredibly slow and the race seemed very uneventful.

    Loving how bright and happy this game is. Really immaturely though, all I hear when the announcer says "B Class" is meat flaps :eek:

    Speed scales with difficulty and it's a fairly easy race from earlier in the game so bumping it up to hard gives a better impression.

    It's more a game about drifting (takes a little while to learn) & boosting than face melting speed, the boats do feel quite slow otherwise it's fine.

    Probably my favourite racing game this year.

    Loved the demo, the drift mechanic is well done. How many tracks we talking people?

    This is getting bought, going to trade the yawnsome AC3 for it as soon as I can get to a shop.

    I lie. There will be a total of 21 tracks, with 17 new ones (1 exclusive to the Limited/Bonus Edition) and 4 returning ones from Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

    I really couldn't work out the drift when I played the demo. I kept trying to do it like in Outrun 2 but that just slowed me to a crawl. Couldn't work out a better method.

    Still it hasn't put me off wanting to get this, I'm sure I'd work it out eventually.

    You have to wiggle the stick to build the level of boost like in Mariokart.

    Sonic's one of the more difficult characters to drift due to his low handling stat. I struggled too in the demo, after an hour or so with the full game it becomes second nature.

    Excellent, thanks chris.

    Missed this before I said the same thing! My wife is not finding it funny that I constantly say it after him.

    The challenges in the game really do help build your skills as well - it's a very nicely structured career mode.

    Nah,its just time based like the last game. The longer the drift the higher the boost. Its been normalised across all characters for this release so boost builds at the same rate for everyone. Just hold down LT and slide. You can quickly release LT and switch correction and continue building boost but it starts building from the beginning of whatever boost level you were at.

    So if you were almost at 3 when you switched direction you'd have to drift the same amount of time again to reach max boost rather than just for a moment.

    That afterburner track is a visual feast.
    It's the first track I have raced in a good while that made me say wow out loud.
