Yum! 1 day after pay-day, so that is good (but also coincides with Valentines week- not so good) :o/

Can we expect preview/review anytime soon ? I loved the first one but still not sure about this one, im afraid of "sims" mechanism :p

I wanted to love the first one but I couldn't stand how poorly the vehicles actually handled. I hope it's improved.. this franchise has so much potential.

Nah, it was easy to love it once you accepted it for what it was. Yes, the handling was tricky on the fastest cars, but you countered for that by slowing down for corners and lifting off for crests.

It made up for it with the ability to go pretty much anywhere, pick up models without a court appearance, do 200+mph without a court appearance, Thelma and Louise-style police chases, the showrooms, all well ahead of its time.

If they can nail it all down pat, then this will be one of the best games made for just going out for a drive (which is another thing I really enjoyed about the first one).

I own it, I've played it, I enjoyed aspects of it. I still think that it's fundamentally flawed.

DEMO...Needs to happen

That's cool, each to their own :o) I agree that it has a lot of potential, so fingers crossed...

I finished the first one, mainly due to me picking it up during a game drought when the 360 was in its infancy. It needs to have improved substantially for it to compete nowadays. I loved the scope of the first one, and funnily enough, I really enjoyed the courier levels where you had to take care of the car and not damage it during transport. But, I hated the ridiculous taxi levels with the piss poor acting and character models/animation, it made me throw up in my m outh a little everytime I pulled over and got the cutscene.

Awesome, finally a firm release date, already have it pre-ordered on steam, hope they have a pre-load.

Hated the physics on the first one but there was so much to love i'll be giving this one a shot anyway.

Gamestop has the release date set for Feb. 8th, that date makes sense as its on a Tuesday. Is the Feb. 11th date for Europe?

    Loakum @GriftGFX: trends. 2D fighters was all the rage, then 3D fighters took over, now it switched back to 2D fighters. It'll switch again. (57 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are too few 3D fighters anymore but I guess the genre shifted hard to 2D a while ago. (1 Hour ago)

  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (6 Hours ago)
