WOW!!!! Its awesome. If your into racers period its a must and even if your not you will like it. Nothing like the other rally games and I have never wanted to buy one until now. And the graphics engine is insane, they went all out even the water looks better than most games. I will be getting this game and if I was to go by the demo and the three maps I would say classic.

OMFG THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I absolutely love it! Best graphics I have ever seen in a racing game thus far, even surpassing RallySport Challange(which is definetely hard to beat)

Wow, surprisingly fun for a rally game!

I dont play many racing games, and ive always hated rally games(too fast, monotonous, drawn out, and no other cars) but this is fun! And the graphics are amazing. If you stop and look at things closely they arent mind blowing but unlike many games, this one looks nearly photo-realistic when driving.

Very nice

BTW, I was playing at 1600x1200 2xAA 8xAF with all settings maxed and it ran great the whole time. Only one map slowed down to where I noticed it in some places (its the one with water). Other than that, the only performance problem I had was when plowing through a lot (15 or more) of the ribbon fence posts, the framerate would drop to a crawl... though i had the special physics thing turned on that makes these move realisticly, so its probably just a fluke in the physics engine.

I'll try this out after they finally kill off the WoW stress test. I hope it works in 3-D!

Though I'm not much into rally games as I think they're kind of boring, I'm always willing to try out something new especially if it's something that can show off the power of my hardware. I'll give this a shot tonight.

Those screens look incredible! Almost forgot I was looking at a racing game Definitely checking this one out. How are the controls? Will kb+mouse be sufficient or is a joystick or wheel a must?
