This crap has been on the XBox Live Marketplace for a few weeks already. I won't touch it because NFS is dead to me (after the shit they called Underground/2/Most Wanted).

Yeah, I heard it was out at least a couple of weeks ago but didn't get it as I read that the demo was very poor, laggy and buggy, so I didn't waste my download.

Just beat the demo. I'll be buying it (fun game, especially canyon mode!) even though drifting is a joke.

Sculpting mode is also incredibly cool. You make you own parts. For example, the wheels. You pick the number of spokes, width, twist, etc. etc. :cool:

Auto sculpting is good but the game is far to arcadey for my liking.

Back to using my feet, bicycle and the bus.
...even though drifting is a joke.

Just tried the demo for a brief 15 minutes and uninstalled it right after that. Autosculpting is a nice addition but the driving is baaaad...somewhere between Undergrounds 1/2 (mediocre) and Hot Pursuit 2 (which was really REALLY bad). But that drifting...holy mother of horsepower, they have ruined it. It's like random guessing, should I press left or right and then the car just goes...somewhere. At least in the earlier games it was fun and had some logic in it, now it's just hopeless.

So no thanks, I'll stick to the older Undergrounds.

Even the people who worked on this game think it sucks and is nothing but cash grab by EA.

Seriously, my friend quit EA and went to work for Silicon Knights directly after this game was finished. He described it as a "turd on wheels."

See also: Battlefield 2142

EA are a bunch of money whores. They release crappy games that make tons of money and don't bother properly patching them 'cause they can just make more money by releasing a bazillion content addition packs (see: The Sims).

Yet I still buy their games. I'm hopeless. :(

Not bad but I already uninstalled it. Worse handling than Most Wanted. I'll play it just to see if it is like that from the start or the demo was just this bad.
