    liking the tyre defects

    Excellent game............now off to pre-order. Looks stunning as well and replays are excellent.

    Remember to turn the auto-brake off though when you play it. :-D

    Only thing i didn't like was the rewind feature. :-(

    time to break out the racing seat setup

    Who plays forza games with a wheel and pedals here and manual/everything off?

    Awesome news now i just have to wait to get out of work O_O

    boring usual racing game with nice graphics

(take a look at the replays to they really are stunning)Must have driving game..........



    and then there's gran turismo 5

    Rather a late lunch, but I had time to go home and download the demo. Why it is so well hidden is anyones guess...
    Managed to have two races and I have to admit to being rather disappointed.

    The graphics were underwhelming during both gameplay and replays. Perhaps graphics have peaked, but I still find Grid quite beautiful to watch and play.

    The single track and lack of any online functionality obviously restricts any ability to appreciate what the possibilities truly are, so nevertheless I'm keeping my preorder for now.

    I agree with your graphics statement, I'll add that the cockpit view is immensly crap compared to need for speed shift.

    What I did find fascinatingly addictive was the manual gears with clutch control...
    It took me a while to figure out what button the clutch was, but after I did I have had an awesome time running around the track in different cars.

    So my opinion so far:

    Definitly not the best looking racer out there, but most certainly the best controlling racer out there. I love it

    its downloading very slow for me...4% in 30 mins... been getting disconnected from xbox live too...anyone else experiancing this?

    I'd forgotten all about clutch control, will be racing home to try that out.
    What did people think of vehicle damage? Crashes seemed to lack impact but it was certainly reflected in the car performance.

    im giving the game a miss, il wait till its cheaper, if there was a small option for drift or do a quick mod to your car i would consider, at the same time as being in to minds as gt5 isnt out till march 2010 allegedly, forza 3 may be on the table, i have halo 3 to get through first lol

    When >?

    March ya mad man. But i wouldnt have bought it anyway cos of fifa, uncharted 2 nd MW2
    especially fifa which got a 9/10 on eurogamer

    I played the demo a lot more last night and have discovered more annoyances:

    Do we really want to see a shot of a wheel at the start of every race?

    Why does the race start so quickly? You literally have a split second to prepare when you finally get a racing view of the road! There's no time to bring your revs up to speed and the A.I. always gets off the line first. I sincerely hope the final release has a proper countdown sequence.

    Same here, but when I heard that it comes with all the Halo 3 Multiplayer maps, and it's scored a lot of above average reviews... I kinda want it now ! lol

    Only thing is, there are a lot of games ( A LOT ) coming out this year ( L4D2, Fifa 10, UC2, Forza 3, Bad company 2 to name a few lol!) And I Don't know if £30 is worth half a game?

    I'll just wait for a massive proce drop =)

    Agreeeeeeeeed! It was cool to listen to the awesome sounds and look at how nice the wheels look when the car pulls up the first time, second and maybe even 3rd time.... but it does get very annoying, Why can we not just skip it and get our engines ready? Like in Forza 2 Or NFS shift or a lot of other racing games

    How many of the "1000+" are you actually gonna drive?

    Excellent someone's invented motion controllers... Now if you built a console around that you'd make easy money...

    Oh... hang on... :oops:

    ah , its all about variety man,
    i have more choice, so does many other people, its better to have more cars, cos u can race against more different cars too,

    gt5 has WRC and Nascar. so no need to buy DIRT 2 or Nascar 10. :roll:

    So you'd still need to buy dirt 2 for the full experience...

    Or I don't because I hate nascar and Rally is awesome and I will buy Dirt 2 as a seperate rally game and not a rally car in a racing sim :thumbsup:

    Sony have really F'd everything up with GT5. They dared to release a demo under the name prologue and made you people pay good money for it. 5 years since it was originally announced can't believe how loyal some people are lool.

    Anyways, when it is out (if it is during my lifetime) I'm sure it'll be a great game, we don't know which one will be better though... just have to wait and see.

    it does have damage

    and musne GT5 will be better, and its official release date is march 2010.
    and its not really a demo as it has more then 60 cars, 6 tracks and a good career mode. Probably lasts the same amount of time as NFS SHIFT

    How on earth can you decide which is the better game when both of them are only at demo stage?
