    Has anybody else got it? Finding it really tricky so far.

    Also, can't see a way to do up the Cars :(

    The series lost its way after GT3. Haven't liked it since but still play GT3 and have the steering wheel, I bought it at launch. Defo got the money's worth out of it.

    Have played it a bit more but it is nothing like the one on the original playstation.

    On that I would have an MX5 for weeks where I had to save to buy an exhaust to make it a bit faster and then I'd get a bigger turbo.

    On the new one I did about 5 things for the driving license and they gave me a 911.

    If I can't fit exhausts or drive backwards to piss people off, there's no enjoyment.

    Might just trade it in for assassins creed.

    That's not the same though :( Not that bothered about gear ratios etc.

    I want to upgrade the exhausts, turbos and stuff :(

    It was more the customisation of the car / engine / turbo etc to make it better. Used to love doing that.

    I will buy it but I must admit I tend to get bored with driving sims after a while. Presentation wise it looks amazing

    Have got into a bit better now, done all the driving tests and won a few cars.

    Had a couple of races online but they must be serious pros, on a small track they are still a good 7 seconds faster even when I am going pretty much flat out. No chance of winning a race :(

    the online set up is brilliant with qualifying for each race. also apparently if you crash alot you get paired with people who do same so good players can race well

    that said i am not into cars and thus bring arcade element to my racing for the most part. i will rent this next year for a while to really give multiplayer a proper go

    Ooh, tempting. Is it more aimed at online or is there a decent career mode like the old school ones?

    There is a career mode, it isn't as addictive as the older ones though :(

    Ah balls. Why don't games cater mostly to the anti-social like the good old days? I might still have a look, £25 is probably worth a gamble.
