I've been playing for about an hour now and it's pretty frickin sweet thus far. The story line is better, the feel of the cars are better . . . heck, it's basically Underground + Hot Pursuit + Major Improvements. Here's a screenie of my current ride:

Yea, how does the retail game differ from the demo? More cop chatter or anything cool like that?

Ehh, I can't really agree with you there. I haven't watched the DVD yet.

As far as a retail vs demo comparison, it runs a little better for me and my controller actually WORKS!!! The heat levels and all that stuff is pretty dang cool too. I don't wanna spoil anything for you guys though . . .

Does it actually have surround sound? Please say yes! The demo was only stereo

No, it still only shows stereo. It runs better than the demo though. zeero1978, I see the same graphics options as the demo.

Edit: Also, it works with Game Jackal so that's an added bonus. Edit 3: Dang, wrong about that. It doesn't work with Game Jackal. Edit 4: Dang, having a bad night. It does work. I was clicking the shortcut instead of launching from the Game Jackal menu.

Edit 2: Edited out the "much better" part and just made it "better" instead. I forgot I had forced some lower settings to improve the framerate in the demo.

I can't get 1600x1200 for the life of me, even changing the registry key. WTF!? My youth group is up in my room tonight so I can't play right now . But it did give me a chance to look at the DVD and it didn't really get me. I'm a sucker for buying the collector's edition for everything for the extras but this one kinda sucked in a way, or at least the DVD did.

Also, if you have NFSU2 on your PC still, you get an added bonus cash when you start a career.
