    Mmmh...must pre-order this ASAP.

    It's like Burnout, but they replaced the oncoming traffic with Michael Bay.

    Demo is out for 360. Lots of fun. My "insider" says that the demo level (airport) is probably the most basic track and you drive the slowest cars. So everything in the retail game is even crazier. Even so, I had fun playing it over and over for about 2 hours just exploding things.

    This game is crazy. I really didn't like the aggressive AI at first, and I'm still coming to terms with it, but I've found that it's better to just take a qualification and move on rather than bang your head against a track 10 times. I had two races in one episode where the best I could manage was 2nd. I finally moved on to the next episode and unlocked a new car, came back, and got first in both without much problem. I think if you can just play the game without worrying about coming in first every time, it's a lot of fun.

    Detonator challenges are still my hardest event, but I appreciate the skills they are trying to teach. You definitely get a better idea of how to navigate the tracks and power plays. Air Strike and Survival can be a bit difficult, but I've found that the Corbretti GT RS handles really well in those situations. It can make faster corrections without initiating a drift when you don't want.

    I think this game is responsible for more "Oh $*%7!" moments than anything I've played this year. Is Michael Bay made "Fast & The Furious," I get the feeling this would be the end result.

    The demo for this game was good but I havn't played the full version yet. If the demo is anything like full then its going to be really fun.

    Easily the most fun i've had with a racing game since Burnout 2.

    They got the whole challenge/reward balance perfect with this game. Most times its a bitch to come first but when you win that race that's being annoying you for 20 minutes its one of the finest pleasures.
