Possibly the best racing game ever? Well, I think it’s probably up there with OutRun 2, based on the hour or two I’ve spent with it so far. No great surprise, given that I’d played the demo, but it’s nice to have it confirmed. It’s fast, gorgeous, it sounds wonderful, has perfect handling and the track deformation makes a far bigger difference than it does in Motorstorm.

It also seems to be rock hard. I got thirty out of thirty points in the first event on my first try, but haven’t been able to in any of the other events so far.

I’d have played it more, but I’m sick at the moment and after a few minutes it makes my head want to explode. Annoying, that.
