    Now I enjoyed the demo at the Expo but this demo looks so much nicer, perhaps the usual TV settings issue that games events have?

    Anyhow absolutely loved the demo and can't wait for the game to turn up, I'm going to spend a lot of time buggering about in Colorado I'm sure.

    Even in the brief time I spent with it earlier, it certainly looked much nicer at home - I always, always find this with Expo stuff though - I realise it would probably take a long time to calibrate all those TVs, and there are flashing lights all around and whatnot, but really the expo telly settings always seem too bright, with the sharpness turned up too much and all that kind of thing. Did a bit of a double-take when the yellow Viper is introduced at the start of this new demo, because on my TV it looked lovely. Like a real car!

    It certainly looks much more anti-aliased/filtered to me than the Expo demo, sharpness being over the top would probably make a difference there.

    Just done the Mustang vs Mustang race. Great stuff and a good idea!

    I've a feeling that race is scripted to let you win unless you really stuff it up. But it's really an intro to the game so I can understand the reasoning.

    @Whizzo

    Is it not because your about a foot away from the screen at the expo?

    Most consoles games except some XBLA ones look bad up close. Crysis 2 was like software mode when I went to charge the controller.

    Glad people are liking this, been a while since I enjoyed a racer, this could bring back the fun.

    I came 2nd at the expo I'm embarrassed to say! Hit a telegraph pole on the last corner :-)

    Yeah, I had that feeling too. Also one of the following races felt like there was rubberbanding.
    But absolutely nothing that spoils the good first impression.

    Feels good, nice drifting on the Mustang :)

    Decent demo to get a feel of the game - it has elements of many driving games, but it's different enough.

    I'm sitting closer to my gaming TV at home (it's on my desk) than I was to the TV at the Expo.

    I picked up the two Toy Soldiers Cold War DLCs at a reduced price and they keep failing, the demo downloaded fine earlier.

    edit: got them in the end, had to delete the 99% complete downloads and start from scratch, worked ok after that.

    Thought it'd be balls. It's not.

    Worth the download just to get buzzed by the plane at top speed, great little moment that.

    Looks great and I had a lot of fun once I got my controls sorted out. I think I'd need to get a handle on what multiplayer is like before I purchase though. Unless I missed it in the demo?

    I'll second all the hype. Really good demo, some good races but, more importantly, it's just a huge amount of fun to throw the cars sideways around a wide bend and straighten up out of it. It's like a mix of the best bits of Forza, PGR, Rallisport and TDU.

    I genuinely surprised at how well it plays. Wasn't expecting it.

    Excellent demo indeed. My only gripe was the language that seems to be selected based on the location settings on your console. I want my software in English and not in awkward localized versions.

    I couldn't find a way to change/select the language within the demo and had to "move to Canada" to switch it to English.

    After I got that sorted out it was brilliant, instant preorder.

    This is pretty much as good as I hoped.

    Excellent.

    Brilliant demo, I was going to buy it anyway, but this will sway me to a shopto pre order so that it comes early  :-)

    Met and exceeded my hopes - great fun demo that hints at what's to come!

    I love all the little unlocks/challenges dotted around (cameras, signs, roads driven) - OCD overdrive! At the risk of overpraising it, the game feels like a cross between PGR, GT, and Colin McCrae, but manages its own identity, which is some achievement.

    Not been this enthused by a racer since PGR3 :0)

    Why look, it's a blog:
