This game is absolutely amazing. Hands down, the best launch game i've seen on any console launch. I give it 9/10 and would be 10/10 if it had more tracks.
If you go in expecting a career mode and a love of cars, you will be in love. if you expect arcade racing, go elsewhere.
The production, performance, presentation and polish on this game is just insane. I bought the digital download copy so i would never need a disk and it started playing pretty quickly after the initial install.. i didn't see what the install % was before it allowed me to launch but the background download didn't seem to hinder any performance either. I have uverse 50mbit.
hopefully my drivatar is out there kicking some ass, if you see blahism wave
honestly, it feels more like a driving experience more than a driving game.. just sit back and take it all in
