Looks nice, except when he jumps from a car to another....

When i saw the first videos i thought meh but after playing the demo its a day one purchase for me. Kind of a mix between Midtown Madness 3, Driver and the Getaway is what sprang to mind when playing it, but as Blim so aptly put it "mindless but rather fun" :)

Hmm, i thought the demo was appallingly terrible- It reminded me of those old racing games like cruisin' USA for some reason. I did like the rediculous ramming mechanic, though...

The demo's great! It could do with more anti-aliasing though. It's like a cross between Chase HQ: SCI, Crazy Taxi and probably that PSP game. (Pursuit Force I think? I've never played it but it looks cool and you can jump on other vehicles like in this, although I can't remember if you take control of them like in this.) This needs more publicity, I hope it has loads of good adverts when it's released.

I thought it was nice pick up and play fun. Reminded me of how burnout used to be.

Really pretty looking game too.. only let down by his terrible run animation

Actually one of the best gameplay trailers ive seen lately, really well done, great emphasis on the actual gameplay rather than cinematics :)
I did like the demo, it was dumb to jump from cars to cars, but who cares if it's done with a sense of humour?
However i did miss a TAD more heavy steering, i would have loved some more GTA4 style physics, and a bit less burnout twitch-physics.

    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (10 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (10 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (10 Hours ago)
