    Looks pretty decent to me, think it might be time to move the Xbox back down to the lounge:)

    Had a play on this earlier.

    Lovely graphics, good handling and quite fun to play, impressive for an XBLA title. Wasn't quite sure what to make of the power-ups, they felt a bit out of place to me, although being optional on start up at least you can take them or leave them.

    If I had one doubt about this game, it's the difficulty. I played all 3 classes on both the available tracks and the difficulty didn't seem to ramp up at all, could do with difficulty settings really.

    Haven't decide yet if I'll unlock, might wait for a couple of reviews of the full game.

    Not really much to do with either of those two IMO. More in common with games like Scrap Metal and the old top down rally games such as.....

    Rush Rush Rally Racing Gameplay Dreamcast


    and

    Neo Drift Out On MAME- Practice Stage And...


    ...only lacking the speed :laugh:

    I did see some difficulty settings in the game options menu. It was on easy by default. Not exactly obvious given that most games offer a difficulty option when starting a game.

    It really reminded me of Little Racers: Street. Which is a good thing.

    I really enjoyed it and I'll probably pick it up when it's on sale - I bought loads of games during the recent On Demand sale, so they'll keep me busy!

    Yep, it does have an element of that to it. I'm probably going to do the same and wait for it to arrive on sale, I've got plenty to be cracking on with for now and only just bought Skulls of the Shogun.
