Where is the options menu?
in the other menu screens you can change options, as well as save and quit.

if you use an xbox 360 controller u can press the top shoulder buttons (RB LB) to switch between the menus as well.

Demo time is 30 minutes. But it seems to let you continue to drive around the city without being able to enter races etc. Also, after the 30 minutes it starts to 'nag' you by switching to a screen prompting you to buy the game. But pressing a button takes you back into driving again.

After a while though, the button to take you back to the game changes to a 'Quit' button, which exits the game. I got about 47 minutes before I had to quit.

Re-running the game gives you a bit more time to simply drive about (no challenges though), and eventually, it forces you to quit again.

I have the PS3 version, and I'm not sure if I want to shell out for the PC version as well. The PC version does look better though, but probably because of the higher resolution I caan get (1920x1200). PS3 version already has the additional bikes as a free upgrade, so not sure I want to pay another 30 to get this on the PC.

Is a very nice game though

Yeah Im in the same boat. I love the game but I don't know if I find it worthy of a rebuy. Yeah sure it looks better on the PC but in the end its the same identical game. And most of the people I play online with are on the PS3 version of it.

I got MP going now too, it's just a matter of figuring out the retarded menus.

I can't play above 8s w/o a bit of slowdown... do I need to enable some sort of nhancer sli mode for a gtx 295?

edit: nvm, I see that I had transparency on too

The menus are perfect with a controller, which is what the game was designed for. Normally I would complain if they aren't keyboard/mouse friendly, but since it's a racing game the controller makes perfect sense.

LOL @ those who still can't find the quit button

menus are not perfect for the controller, because when you use controller all buttons change to correspond to the controller, ABXY (colors), but the F1 and F2 doesn't change.
