Hey Carsonal - Eb's next sale begins roughly the second week of June and the Xbox FF wheel is being priced at $159.00(or was it $169.00 - SP could probably shed more light on that)...oh, and another retailer is more than likely doing the same thing they did with TDU(meaning Forza 2 earlier than expected!!!)

....broke the street date by about three weeks in advance, much to the woe of three of my Live mates :)

Forza 2, both vanilla and collectors edition will more than likely follow suit. Not by EB though. I'll PM ya.

Impressions........Fantastic Graphics/ the vehicle models are exceptional! There's 3 tracks/3 vehicles to choose from in the demo........it's feels less of a sim this time round to me and handles more like RallySportChallenge 2 on the Xbox!
Based on the Demo me thinks it's a Must title!

Sounds great - 15% to go for me. Have you got a wheel or are you using a controller?

Bugger! I hate it when I read about how cool a demo is and I'm stuck in the center of London just gazing out at the London Eye.

I think I might knock it on the head early today :)

Nice - just did the Subaru race. Liking it so far although I need options for a manual gear box stat!!!

Very much like Rallisport, not as dry as the previous McCrae titles - a bit more energy perhaps?

Anyway - another race...or not, friends list has gone nuts...

Love the Evo hill climb so far, the Buggy race has it's 'humorous' moments as well...

EDIT: second in-car view rocks the socks:):):)

As a consumer of Colin McRae, 2, 3, and 2005, I feel I have the right to say they've truly abandoned what the games used to be about.

Colin McRae 2 was the best game. Best features, good graphics, fun game.

Where is the rallying in a rally game?

It never used to be exactly simmy, but jeeez.

It's not I write off in the terms your thinking. Although you can't get in and tweak things to your preference in this demo there is still quite a large CMR series feel to the overall experience - it's just been given a bit more life is all.

That announcer voice grates though.

Never played a collin mcrae game before but this one seems pretty good.
I like the steering, not too rigid and realistic.

It felt very much like a RalliSport sequel to me. Colin McRae used to feel and handle like you had a parachute deployed from the rear of the car, this one while it's definitely not all that realistic is so much fun to play!!

I was thinking of giving this a miss with Forza and the Darkness next month but if anything gets a miss, it'll be Forza I skip for DiRT, I loved the demo. My mate played it and said "meh it's an up-res'd Colin McRae game" so I was disappointed. Then I just gave it a go myself and I couldn't believe how good it was. Vehicle models are incredible, everything is nice and smooth, best use of HDR in a racer yet, excellent Camera modes, not to sim not to arcade mechanics, tracking of current race data over all modes; I dunno this game just really grabbed me and I've not once played a McRae game I've enjoyed. The only downside I would give it is that the track you raced the buggy's on is pretty much just a paddock, not alot of interesting scenery there and the car sounds could be abit meatier but overall this game is the game I am currently most looking forward to for the near future.
