If this has the same achievement list as the Windows Phone title, expect only 1% of people to complete this.

It looks as if this game's intention is to let as many gamers as possible rage quit...

I hope its better than the WP version. One of the worst games I have ever played.

I actually like the way it looks, but that was one awful trailer. Damn.

The windows phone version was ridiculous. I hope they've improved upon it. I was getting frustrated just watching the trailer.

Honestly, looking at the screenshots, it looks like the same courses as the Windows Phone version. cry

Doesn't look too good right now for me to keep my eye on, and judging from the comments, I'm lucky to not have it on a WP.

The Windows Phone version had a high difficulty curve due to the tilt controls. I'd say try the trial first instead of purchase if you're not sure, as the controller will likely reduce the difficulty involved. I'll likely purchase it day 1 - then again, I completed the WP version.

I didn't like the WP version whatsoever - ridiculously difficult and frustrating. I hope this is better.

That trailer looks exactly like my experience with the WP version - And I only played the demo...
I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

Quite enjoyed this on WP7 but was never really a fan of games requiring accurate controls on a mobile device. This game will be well suited to the XBLA and should be a lot nicer to play than on a phone.

For the people who can't wait for this one, I highly recommend Gripshift.

Reminds me of Stunt Racer 2000 about 20 years ago. Except that game was fun and this just looks annoying.

I loved stunt racer 2000 on the achimedes all those years ago!

That was the main reason why I bought the WP version as soon as I saw it. But as others have said, it took a very gentle and acurate hand with tilt controls on the phone and some of the time limits were ridiculous (both of which is why I've not completed it yet). That didn't make a bad game, but from my experience with gamer comments, any phone game that took a delicate touch usually gets slated judging by most most driving games and super monkey ball!

I agree with an earlier comment that playing on a controller will greatly reduce the difficulty. 1 thing missing from the phone version was actual races or multiplayer, which maybe they can include in an Xbox version? It's definitely a try before I buy, but it's by no means as bad as some comments here would have you believe.

Oh, and full repect to Shadow Kisuragi for completing the WP version toast
