    Just hope this means the "UK" Marketplace as well.....This game looks totally mental :D

    If not, I'll be sorting myself an American account to download it, been desperate to see if this is crap or not. I expect the former. Atleast I don't have to buy it to find out!

    I got a playable demo a few weeks back on an OXM mag. Was a good no brain involved racer and the graphics were top notch. The unwreck feature is a cracking idea :)

    Excellent, these are more the sorts of game I was waiting for.

    Story type games (Kameo, Kong etc.) are all well and good but just don't suit my gaming style or preferance.

    This should be a pretty interesting demo as the game video's i've seen look pretty nice.

    Roll on 25th this month :D

    Aparently it's an old demo that dips from 60 to 30fps in places, the game has since been improved to run at a steady 60fps and generally looks more finished.

    I played the demo from the OXM a month or so ago and was underwhelmed. It didn't look anything special and gameplay wise it wasn't a patch on Burnout. I might give the demo another try as maybe I wasn't in the mood for it, but as of now, it's not on my wanted list.

    The demo on the marketplace will be the one that was on OXM.

    Quite looking forward to this despite seeing a few comments saying its looking average, something that can just be chucked on and played without too much thought. Dont think theres been anything similar since the days of Carmageddon/Twisted Metal.

    Online should be a larf :)

    yeah, its not bad. Quite good fun. Weapons dont feel powerful enough on the demo but the destructable scenery is a laugh and makes it quite mental at times. I personally think it will be better than Burnout Revenge as there is a bit more emphasis on having to actually drive, rather than having barriers that you just bounce around, but I guess thats perosnal preference - I found the last burnout to be very dull just crashing through cars.
