    will you be able to mod the cars in this iteration?

    I hated that you couldnt change the headlights and bodykits and paintjobs in some of the previous titles,..

    Looking at that latest video... possibly. When he got into the cars you could see a listing in the right corner of the screen showing the aspects of the car were stock, suggesting that they can be upgraded.

    These included:

    Body
    Chassis
    Power Train
    Tyres
    Nitrous

    What level of upgrading will be possible is really the question though. I have a suspicion that it won't be massively detailed and instead just have certain levels of upgrade for each item. Whether you'll then be able to have a custom paint job... who knows?

    @Tricky - interviews I've seen indicate otherwise. From what they've said and what they've done previously, I wouldn't expect any more visual customisation than changing the paint job. There will be power- and body-related customisations though, as you've noted.

    Not sure how I've been unaware of this game up until now, but damn, I need it.

    Loved Hot Pursuit and this is shaping up very nicely.

    Has anyone else noticed how much the cars rock about on the road. It's almost like the cars are driving on a spongy type road.

    Having not played it, it is pretty hard to tell, but it looks to me like they've lifted the Burnout Paradise driving model and stuck real-life cars on top of it.

    I'll be playing it at the Expo at the end of this week, so I'll be sure to keyboard-splurge my initial feelings about it after that, anyway!

    Oooh, might have to queue up for a go on that myself.

    If it is network'd up, I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to claim that being beaten in races and taken down all the time is 'lag', but I'll give it a rum go!

    Probably a few interesting ones in there, haven't really looked yet though.

    No there's no interesting ones anywhere on that list, nothing that difficult either on it by the looks of things.

    It's probably one of my favourite games at the expo, even if it is just Burnout handling with pretty graphics - and it does have very pretty graphics. I still don't know how the gameplay works, as I took over someone elses game, but just pootling round the city was fun.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Played at expo. Enjoyed but enjoyed Forza Horizon more. Which looked better to boot which wasn't expecting.

    Keep your impressions coming, folks. Intrigued to see what people made of the demo.

    @Pazie same as hot pursuit. Demo I played was bland but I can see it being awesome.

    Getting a negative vibe from the general Expo thread.

    What do you mean? At the
    very least Most Wanted and Far Cry
    3 seem to be getting good reviews
    from people at the expo.

    Hmmmm cheers. That's my pre-order cancelled. I think I'll wait for a demo or some reviews from aources I trust.

    I enjoyed it after finally getting a long go on it - the 1 minute race for the leaderboard was dull, but driving round in free roam was quite entertaining, very much the Paradise City feel, but with cops chasing round after you.

    Not sure what people are after with nfs. I thought it looked very nice, lighting was pretty and the handling was good. Far too early to judge on that small demo. Can't comment on lack of traffic because I honestly didn't notice. I thought this, grid 2 and forza all played very well.

    Hmmm, think Horizon is going to be more up my street.

    That's a point - does anyone know if this is getting a demo?

    I know Hot Pursuit did.

    Me too.

    I didn't love Paradise City.

    Played this again today. I can see what people mean about the lack of traffic - I felt like shouting out whenever I see one. This is no Burnout without oncoming. Still, handling is right up my street and it looks stonking. I'll hold fire for reviews, but if it's not majorly broken in terms of SP career progression, I'll be picking this up.

    Think I'll watch another couple of gameplay vids just to keep an eye out for traffic.

    There wasn't much traffic in Criterion's Hot Pursuit either.

    That wasn't on city streets though.
