    Tried it today and its pretty good so far

    quite a few cars to buy as well including a Bugatti Veyron :))

    I have only done about 4 races so don't know if i will like it after a good play and i haven't tried out the customisation side yet either. I like how they cut to FMV to keep the story going and the races i have done have been entertaining

    Oooh, I want to know if this is any good.

    What do you think is better so far, Midnight Club LA or NFSU?

    Is the handling decent? In the last few NFS games it's been shocking, like a cross between Ridge Racer and driving a truck through quicksand.

    So far heard totally mix on this heard loading times quite long and also framerate problems. You can now hit D-Pad to go to next mission instead of driving to them seems alot more easy access approach all round.

    But from what i seen i think im going to miss inside view of Midnight club and NFS dosnt have weather effects and neither night and day cycle like MC. But NFS will have better story im sure as MC is very basic really overall it dosnt seem much of step up from previous games but that didnt stop me enjoying new MC.

    The story doesn't worry me too much, all I really want is a fun game (i.e. fun handling, not like you're trying to steer John Prescott through a sea of pies) and good police chases. The original NFS games did police chases so well.

    Not at all..I'm waiting on more reviews to hit before I can make up my mind on getting this game.

    My two options are NFS or Left 4 Dead. I can only get one.

    We shall see.

    Edge are usually quite tough on games but I agree with their scores more often than not

    I actually thought it looked like it had potential when I saw that one vid in IGN of one of the devs showing the handling of a sports car. Physics looked nice on this vid.

    This is a response to CB from the COD5 thread

    Yeah im not sure about NFSU now

    The only reason being that its far to slow to navigate

    you have to wait a couple of seconds for each part or change of shape (which is 3 sliders, so imagine trying each notch on the shape slider) to appear on your car when customising which is very very annoying. Buying cars is the same, you have to wait for the next car you have chosen to load up before you can see it and going to the GPS and is the same

    On Midnight Club everything happens instantly just as it should, so im not gonna touch NFSU's customisation side anymore which takes away part of the reason i play it

    Oh and early on its far far to easy, if i carry on playing ill let you know how it goes

    Does Midnight Club have good customisation? (or any at all)

    Didn't play it much over the weekend i was busy on COD5

    Ill play it again sometime during the week though and let you know. 1 thing i dont like is how you can skip to races by pressing down. Whats the point in a big map and GPS if you can skip to races?

    Exactly, that's why I was looking forward to this one so much. Looks like Midnight Club LA for £20 from Play is the next best thing.

    Midnight Club is awful as well though from what I've heard.

    Why don't they do an arcade style racing game with supercars in it anymore? Why is it always a mix of average sports cars and Japanese tuner cars?
