    Got the demo, came down really fast.

    Out the 3 cars available the Elise is best imho.

    Can only play offline so far until servers come up.

    No problems with framerate and the graphics are superb. Very impressed the demo has sold the game for me :cool:

    Seems pretty lifelike you cant take a corner flat out and expect to stay on the road, the GT500 is very tail happy, turn it hard into a corner and it drifts good and proper :D

    The elise handles a dream and only need to apply slight braking to take a corner fast.

    Hit a lamp post and you stop for dead or go flying :p

    Tset Drive DEMO

    hi.downloaded demo today and its awesome.
    great graphics no slowdown that i can see up to now.
    it really shows the 360 off.
    loads of other vehicles on the road even police cars.
    my one worry was handling of cars,but car handling is great no problems at all.
    it downloaded very quickly about half an hour.
    it lets you play online but when i tried message came on screen servers were down try later.
    to me its a must buy game.
    cheers ian.

    in no way would i say this ' shows off the 360 ' .. pretty mediocre feel to it .. visuals are nothing stunning really ...nothing grabbing me screaming ' BUY ME NOW ' anyway.. will see what its like once the servers are actually up i guess.

    just made me think back to midtown madness whilst i was playing.

    I rather hated my 10 mins playing with this. Going to give it more of a go before I start slating it mind.

    The demo has eclipsed Fight Night as the best demo on Live atm.

    Handling is very good, and its extremely fun. Didn't disappoint at all like I expected it would. Given that this isn't even Beta code, I can't imagine how good the final thing will be later in the year!

    Yeah, I'm impressed so far, one to add to my list I think.

    Anyone managed to get onto the servers for online goodness? Hate that offline is time limited.
