This dropped a couple of weeks ago but then went back up, cheapest is shopto at the moment but they don't have it in stock so this might be of some use.

I bought it last time it was cheap and I really enjoyed it, it does have quite a short single player career though.

Fantastic, best driving game of the year by far. 20 player online mayhem

same price for PS3 to! great post i missed out last time!

The single player is pretty rubbish but the multiplayer is a surprising amount of fun, just needs more people playing it!

thought it was crap, a retarded cousin of wipeout that should never have happened

I enjoy this for four player split screen racing..

Great game. Loved the beta, loving the full game. The single player is good, better than I expected it to be and the multiplayer is fantastic. It may not be the best driving simulator around, but it's by far the most fun driving game around right now. Mario Kart for grown-ups. WELL worth £25 of anyone's money.

Totally agree - high rankers totally dominate, with extra mods and cars etc. Single player has the nasty mario cart efect of letting you lead until the final half lap then the AI seem to fire everything they have at you!

I'm going to wait for the price to drop sub £15, won't be long

Just bear in mind this game is best in multiplayer and the numbers online are low currently, by the time it drops to £15 there may not be much left online.

yeah only about 300 online (avg 3,000 online at any one time) in each game type - some of the destuction lobbies are already empty - - buy it now to reach a good rank before its too late

I always come in top 5 (have infact won a couple), so I don't think it's anything to do with what mods you have.

I really want this, and I'd pay £24.99, but I refuse to buy from PLAY any more.. I've never had anything delivered in less than a week, it's shockingly appalling..

It's a flawed multiplayer experience you'll be in 1st then 4th but no one overtook you. Cheats. I dunno how it's possible without that word being applicable. (it's not ping before some says Lag)

Anyways the mods do help and the car upgrades from entrants will make it very lucky for you to even see the 1st 2nd 3rd players if ranked round the clock 50 etc.


A glitch allows ranks of 11-50 in the 1-10 rank only (via friend invite)

The multi aspect should have been the training 1-10 only then rank 10-20 rank 30-40 rank 40 and above..

Yeah I know someone could create 1 month trial thats played game could rejoin 1-10 etc and abuse and dominate but they are not skilled just weak minded.

Surely the only experience you need is that against the AI?

Maybe you're just not very good at it, you have to use weapons defensively as well, I had an amazing moment on the last lap of the last corner where someone got hit witch a bolt and there was a homing thing coming in on me, I fired off my barge which destroyed the incoming missile and I passed the second place guy.

To make things even better that win netted me 50G

I do like that you can use just about anything as a defensive option as it means with skill you can generally hold a lead particularly if you can use bolts well because potentially they can shoot down three projectiles each which is very handy if you've got a few people emptying their shunts on you. If I've got a good lead I tend to keep one slot for bolts or a shunt, one for shields and one for nitro, the shields are still handy as it means you can race straight through a shock without losing speed trying to avoid it.

What do you mean it's Mario Karts for Grown Ups? I'm a 'Grown Up' and I love Mario Karts!! Just ask my kids.

I once got a game delivered the next day via Play.com. It was a copy of CSI the game on Xbox 360. Ordered, despatched next day, delivered the day after that. I was extremely impressed. Never happened again since!

Good game, more addictive than red dead redemption.
Although I can see the multi-player being dead in a couple months (PS3 already is...or so ive read).

this is a great game online, mario kart for adults, I paid full price for it and was quite happy to do so rather than waiting for a drop as it really is suprisingly good

Great game.

It's also £29.99 in hmv if you dont want to wait.

Is it? everyone I know who has purchased it thought the single player was pretty average at best, and the split screen is pretty dull tbh, took it back the next day myself. Screw the multiplayer, theres far better racing games for multiplayer racing out there, red dead redemption has many weeks of gameplay this has many hours at best.

i ordered but wish i had just bought it when i went shopping at asda this weekend thought it would have been here before the weekend but it has only been dispatched on monday bloody crap service!!
most online companys get the games sent out the sameday and its sent 1st class for free.

oh and its still not here yet post has just been.

Much better game than i thought it would be. The online multi-player is good however not sure if anyone else has found this but it seams to struggle to join a lobby and once in it oftern loses connection with that lobby after the first race.
