I've heard plenty of negative thoughts about the game, mainly revolving around the controls and the fact that it isn't on the streets.
To be honest, I think it's about time that the game went back to the track, I'm personally not keen on Cop Chases and such, I prefer to just race. I also find traffic rather annoying, so track style play with nothing but control and speed sounds perfect!
I'm interested to see what people think, and if anyone has played it yet. It's currently on it's way to me, was posted today by Play.com, but I'm guessing that due to they Christmas rush, it may take more than "3-5 days for delivery".
So, what are your views on the dramatic change to the game?
Many of the new features look great! Such as, a far more detailed tuning screen, involving fully customizable body kits and a wind tunnel, and a far more advanced Drag race style, with burnouts and extra points etc etc. There are also far more advanced graphics which I have only seen in one other racing game as of yet, and many more cars, many of which I really like. Plus, a very attractive internet-based part of the game, you can share tracks, car blueprints and 'race days' with friends, as well as chatting and sharing play times etc.
