One thing I have found annoying is the Kinect integration. I've actually had to disconnect the Kinect from the Xbox as my children and partner have an annoying habit of changing the camera angles, opening the map etc when I'm racing.

As far as I can see there isn't an setting in the options to disable it in game.

I haven't seen anyone mention online yet, IMO it sucks. I played it for maybe 30 minutes the other day. All is seems to be is 8 people crashing into each other, there doesn't seem to be much of a structure to the online game, feels like it was thrown together at the last minute. I'm going to play it until I get the achievements for online and then not touch it again.

There is a structure, but it seems to not trigger the next objective when it should when I play. I'm a little confused by it myself.

When it works it's great...when it doesn't...

Ah yeah, I remember those arches. Now that you put the screenshot in that angle, it does resemble City Hall :|

Gah, I'm about 5 security gates away from 100%ing this game. Don't know why they didn't provide a map of the gates.

I'm hoping game stop gets this used soon. I called one store and they said used would be $47. Plus I have a 20% off coupon!

That'd be quite a steal...

I bet they will have soon, as they usually get stock of used games pretty quick.

At least where I live...

Claim back your keyboard from grandma and drive yourself. :p

Then have a modest go and boom, you have your 100 dollar black&white portrait.

Oh it's going fine it's just not apparently on the right road.

I probably passed by it once or twice and knocked it over instead of speeding through

of course...figuring out which one I missed is the problem!

Alright this Viper GTS race to outrun the cops is definitely a pain in the ass. (I don't like the car in the first place, but I do want to do all the races for every car.) :p

Well 6 days after getting this game I've traded it in. Have completed everything except for missing 4 security gates and I didn't bother with any of the online achievements as the online sucks. I really don't enjoy getting wiped out every 30 seconds or so.

These crashes are getting really annoying lately.

All I get in the 24 hours of the day is about 1 for the game, and 15 minutes are ruined by these crash cutscenes

I can relate to that.

Way too cinematic.

Also, often the way your car is auto-piloted out of the crash back into regular racing during the cutscene is total nuts...

Just some hours ago I got directed directly into a wall... well, thanks lads...

Once you have one of the best cars pumped up nothing is really difficult.

Except one (thus far for me) - getting 249 km/h average in Veyron's Needle Sh*t (last race) was pure evil! Just barely completed it with 249.1 km/h after, I think, some 2 hour grind (mostly watching crashes and waiting for retry, but there you have it) and I'm still trembling. Amidst random crashing (because Veyron is an unmaveuverable rocket), random SUVs appearing out of the blue, cops crashing themselves and doing piruettes all over the road, unavoidable traffic jams and a great many lottery ticket moments, I simply couldn't take the corner which takes from airfield back to the highway, totally wasting any good start I might have had.

I'm done today. Pure evil, I'm telling you.

Ha ha, you don't control that car, I just pointed and hoped it wouldn't get airborne. I kept asking myself if they forgot to put brakes and gravity on that car, the only tip I can give is not to run wide open and if there is a hill let off the gas as you reach the top.

The only vehicle I haven't finished all the races for is the Ford truck (SVT?), but I'm only at the Boss Mustang (going in alphabetical order) still plenty of cars left. I took down the "most wanted" with the 'Vette pretty easily, the only problem was with the #1 driver got away due to an SUV taking me out right after the "take down" part started. I had to keep chasing him and he'd just disappear off the radar, so I'd drive around and he would show up every so often fly by and I'd keep chasing, after about 20 minutes he flew by and totaled himself and as I was closing full speed he was transported behind me and he drove off. I was not happy, since I totaled myself hitting the wall he hit, but somehow I got him and finished the "list".

All in all this game has some very crappy parts and some even crappier parts, why can't I set the damn thing to skip all the race intros automatically? How does an SUV only hit me hard enough to scratch the paint but still total me? Still, I push on, I have no money to buy another game, so eventually I pick it up and keep going on my way to 100%!
