Yes the demo is 1.06 GB (sic!). My final impressions >

Playing the demo I had the impression of playing NFSU (1) all over again. Not only for the atmoshpere of the game but also for the look; it's almost like playing NFSU for PC at 1280x800.

Ridge Racer 6 environmets and cars look much better. PGR is a differnt beast and I won't even try to make comparisons.

So far at other boards too, I am not hearing very good things about this demo I remember the good ol days when a new NFS game was vastly improved from the previous one.

Was this by the same team who made MW? Or the team that made U? If I recall correctly, MW was by a different team than the ones who made U.

Tokio Extreme Racing will be out tomorrow in the States and Europe and it already received good reviews in Japan. The good news is that the game seems to be every bit as good as its Dreamcast anchestor. If you like TXR on the Dreamcast, this might be a good title to pick up. Just don't expect a revolutionary game.

MW was developed by EA Canada but Carbon is developed by EA Blackbox, the guys who made HP2, U1,U2.

Damn! EA Canada are the ones with the dev skills... Carbon might be basura! (reserves final judgement after download!)
