The vegetation physics are cool. I hope they can get all the other complaints ironed out.

This looks like 100 times better than the earlier video. I am excited.

cheesey presentation, but if any video was going to sell the idea of a sequl to me more then it already has, this would be it, looks great. and split screen is a HUGE bonus that should have been in the first game.

That vegetation is stupid, who cares about the grass in a racing game, come on' surely they could have found better things to work on, (like in-car view) and the water looks like crap, hope there going to fix that.

Also the whole thing looks like it's hard to tell where your suppose to be going some arrows on the floor would be nice. Not a fan of this whole grassy back-drop, wish they could have still added some more dusty mountains like in part one but with better graphics and higher hills, but whatever...

4 split screen is nice... and add some more speed, dam the thing is slow for a racing game. every play PGR4, GT5p... come on' more speed.

I thought they where going to have character design this time around (you know make your character look however you want) looks like they tossed that for vegetation... what a mistake.

vegitation actually brings a whole new dynamic to the game, did you not watch the video? larger vehicles can get through them, smaller ones cannot.

the game does have mountain based tracks, just like it has beach based tracks too. the race events run across the whole island, not just the jungle...do a bit of research before you bash a game.

the game is fast enough, did you even play the first game. its all centred around the boost system. which when activated, completely demolishes the speed of PGR or GT.

character design is still in the game. it just wasnt showcased here.

hopefully that should put your mind at rest, or allow you to come up with yet more complaints.

I'm not sure why but this game just seems boring to me?

Maybe I'm just not too keen on arcade racing titles in general... unless they go to the extreme like Hydro Thunder or something.

The environment in this game doesn't even look natural and seems out of place with the vehicles

No it doesn't it's nowhere near as fast as pgr 4.

i'd say it was. only thing is you cant keep at that constant pace since you'll explode. but then if you could keep at that pace, you'd probably find it impossible to keep control of the vehicle and crash into a big rock....or in this case, a tree. only game faster then this series currently is the other awesome arcade racer, burnout.
