  1. Is it balls.
    It would be working by now if it was ever going to. It's like the British Leyland of racing games. Doesn't matter if you stick fancy stripes and a walnut dash on it, it's still a poorly conceived bag of nails.

    Time to realise folks that we've been sold a donkey and not a racehorse.
    A donkey will never win at Epsom no matter how much you tell people you're thrashing it.

    All in saying is that you guys make it seem like the game is unplayable, but still try to play it. I get that you paid money for it, but in its current state, you're better off just moving on until a patch arrives.
    Its called mindless optimism and desperately trying to form a justification for not sticking this coaster on Ebay.
    I still switch it on to see if by some minor miracle it's been fixed, then slink back in to my beanbag gaming chair knowing full well that within the next 15 minutes I'm either going to be disconnected or have to get up and hard reset the 360.
    No other game I have owned, from the ZX Spectrum 48k, ZX Spectrum 128k, Amiga 1200, PS1, PS2, Wii, PC, and Xbox 360 has been subject to this kind of lax programming. Even the Spectrum with it's wobbly joystick interface didnt crash like this bad boy.
    I've never known anything like it, and lessons have been learned. Stick to games from the top developers and don't believe the hype.

  3. Good points raised. A good development team would work within those console "limitations" though and release a playable game with less eye candy, surely? Or am I missing the point here? Are balloons, moving grass, jumping crowds, particles and helicopters more important to the console gamer than a stable game? I'd say not.
  4. Couldn't care less tbh. It's got their logo on it, they should stand behind it.

    No one buys a console game in the mindset "it costs the same as the PC version, but I'm happy in the knowledge it'll be inferior in comparison and be fatally flawed, but hey that's the price I pay for being a tight wad". If  the console versions are knowingly inferior, charge less for them, or charge a premium for the superior PC version. Simple marketing principles guys. 

    I don't buy any of this "consoles are old" lark. That left a very bad taste with me.
    Anyone here old enough to remember Gerald Ratner and how his empire crumbled after he admitted to selling flawed products?
    Again, look at GTA V on Xbox 360. Do you see evidence there of age getting in the way of quality coding? No, neither do I. I see a greatly talented dev team pouring their heart and soul in to it and extracting every inch of  capability out of a very competent platform, and not making any excuses for their own shortcomings.
    And don't come back with "they have a bigger budget". If you can't pee, get off the pot.

    Looking forward to the new patch though so we can put all this behind us and finally remember GAS for being the greatest racer on the 360.

    That is all. And I said it without any use of the caps lock key.
