Default Need for Speed Shift PC Demo Out now

This came as a bit of a surprise as there was talk about the demo coming in October, but I'm sure nobody is going to complain that it's out now! There's two levels and 4 cars in the demo, so that should be enough to be able to get some impression of what the game is like.

Filename includes the word 'alpha', so maybe not the final demo?

Downloading anyway

I may as well give this a try, since I fancy a bit of racing.

Don't know if it's drivers or what but I'm not getting very smooth performance on this one.

The handling and feel is better the GRiD but it seems very similar otherwise.

I wish they wouldn't 'force' you to watch the videos.

When you crash, the screen goes all blurry. It's just an over the top effect with spoils game-play.

Also, every time I enter the game, I have to select the damn language and reset-up my controls. Quitting the track, you're forced to watch the damn video every time. The game-play is OK but the above things just pisses me off.
