    Tried the demo, it's not bad. By the looks of the demo, the full game will be one of those games that won't appeal to most - no guns, no explosions, no testosterone fueled muscle bound generic male lead with more muscles than brains - but it could be one for those looking for something fun.
    I play video games, therefore I am

    Played the demo, didn't really enjoy tbh. Would play Mario Kart over it any day of the week.

    With these kind of games, the 'rubber-banding' is always the key aspect as to whether I enjoy them or not.

    Demo will be tried soon, hopefully it won't be abysmal as this does look a lot of fun.

    I can't stand rubber-banding either. If I race well then I should be rewarded for that - not pipped at the post by cheating AI. Don't get me started on NFS: Hot Pursuit...
    Anyway, as for this one... Well I tried the demo earlier today and I thought it seemed quite ok :) I can see myself having fun with this and the achievements don't look too bad either from what I've seen. It'll be fun with friends I think!
    Looking forward to seeing how the reviews go once it's released.
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    Played one race on the demo last night, seems pretty good to be honest, and im in no way a F1 fan.

    Think I will get this, local co-op is pretty fun and will see me through until Sonic Racing is out.

    Might give this a 'spin' later on

    It's a fun demo. I really enjoyed. But I can't deny that it seems to fit more as an arcade game than a retail. Btw, if I find it in a low price, I'll get it for sure.

    Seriously, what the hell has this to do with F1 other than using the drivers and teams names. Any real F1 fan would not want this anyway

    I know what you mean, I'd happily spend 1600 ms points on it as an XBLA game, but ity does seem lacking in content for a retail release.

    Really?! Codemasters other F1 games are not full SIMs, there're not fully arcade, with this game you know exactly what you're getting. I'm an F1 fan and when I see it drop to under £20 I'll be getting straight away (I hardly ever buy games full price anyway)
    There is no theory of evolution, just a list of animals that Chuck Norris allows to live.

    Lol, where did that come from :/

    This game would have been much better if it followed the same visuals as McLaren's Tooned.

    Already played the demo as well and had fun with it. But, I actually thought it was kinda hard. In the 3000cc class I finished last 0.o On 1000cc I finished 2nd place, at least. Anyway, going to get the game as soon as it's been released. I like games like that a lot. Even though the new Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is going to kick - maybe even Mario's - ass :D
