    Interesting to hear.

    I've oscillated back and forth on this game to be honest. I really do like some bits of it, but absolutely despair at other parts. I think it sort of averages out as an average game to be honest.

    That said, given I've since been hugely disappointed by Sonic Racing Transformed - which, while it looks gorgeous, is uneven, oft-times either boring or stupidly difficult - maybe this deserves another look.

    Same as Chris8875, just not convinced to purchase.... yet. Mainly due to nobody else on my friends list playing it.

    Are you kidding me! 400MSP for ONE TRACK! That's daylight robbery. Codemasters... you... words fail me.

    There's not enough polluted haze for that to be the Indian track.

    I can't understand why they wouldn't bunch the tracks together and sell all 3 for, say 800msp.

    Actually, on reflection, I do understand. It is Codemasters after all.

    Since Canada wasn't in the main game, I'm picking it up! The rest I may wait for a deal....but if I really get into this I may get them all anyway, even Valencia which has no achievements.

    I was under the impression that this should've been an XBLA game. 400 MSP for one track? LOL Epic. Fail.

    Exactly, I had fun with this game and clocked up about 20 hurs but I rented it and wouldn't pay full price for it.

    If it had all 20 tracks from last season the maybe it would be acceptable being a full game, but only 11 tracks made it not worth the money to begin with and now 400 MSP a track? That works out at 3600 MSP to get the 11 missing tracks (if and when they're released) on top of buying the game in the first place.
    There is no theory of evolution, just a list of animals that Chuck Norris allows to live.

    Sonic Racing is way better anyway.

    Errrmmm shouldnt these have been included in the original release!! This is proper naughty by codemasters keeping tracks back so they can be released as DLC. Avoid Avoid Avoid!!! Next F1 2013 will only have 10 tracks and the rest will be DLC.....Cunts!
    I love the word Troll.....its so much nicer than "your a Cunt"

    it doesn't appear that you've played it, so I'm interested to know how you came to that conclusion
    Adventure is out there

    I haven't played it that much so I hadn't noticed it didn't have a track for each of the 2012 races, although I did find it a bit weird that the Valencia track was a download so I should have realised.

    I guess it isn't a proper F1 game but it still seems a bit of a rip-off to make an F1 based game and not even give us all the tracks, they'll probably end up doing that for the proper F1 games one day.

    Well however he came to that conclusion he is still correct.

    And each track should only be about 240MSP each tops.

    it's a bit too expensive for my liking. Love the game but I won't be getting this at 400 msp per track

    This game is much better than most people are giving it credit for. Having said that, Codemasters are killing me with their DLC strategy, it's outrageous.
