Picked it up Yesterday (the Disc Version with a cool little documentary on the series). Bought a Ford Focus, and hit the tracks. The first thing I enjoyed was that there was a bit more organization to the races I could race and the requirements for the ones I couldn't (including a list of cars required to participate). This is probably due to the fact that this is a preview to a bigger game with an ass-load of more races, and I will get confused once I get the full game, but for this game, it's nice not having to flip through menues of races until I find the one that I can participate in. I don't even have to mention the graphics because any screenshot will show that this game shines. The physics and control has been finessed from the Japanese demo I downloaded months ago, and controlling a drift seems a bit easier. The interior view is awesome, but it takes a little to get used to since you can't see everything around you (like in a real car), but the sense of speed in this view is fantastic, and it's nice to have multiple rearview mirrors to see who you can cut off. I won't fault the game for lack of damage, because I never wanted damage and I hope the patch that's coming this Fall (to add damage) is optional, because I play Burnout to see my car screwed up, and I play GT to marvel at their beauty despite a few bangs on the race track. I love the new Daytona track because you really get to pick up speed, and in my shiny Ford Focus, that's quite a feat, hehe. It's obviously nowhere near as robust or HUGE as GT4, but this is an extensive demo, and while it's 40 bucks, you do get a lot for that. Haven't been online yet (embarrassed of my little ride), but I do want to check out the "Myspace type deal they have" Oh and as far as I can tell, no customizable sound track, which got a huge WTF from me because we are in the year 2008, and I love cranking my own music to my races, not some hippie music they chose. Get with the program Polyphony.
