Played this on Xbox recently, not a bad title but I think it was lacking something. Some of the takedowns weren't too original - like buildings exploding from the side of the track, everywhere.

Just had a play of the PC demo and it does look rather good. The cars handle nicely too.

My only gripe is that they don't seem to have bothered to add steering wheel support which seems like a strange decision for a driving game. It's enough to stop me buying it.
