Anybody else get the full game? Mine is sitting back in my dorm room waiting for me to finish class and homework... sure hope its worth it!

EDIT: Yuck. Gag me. Honestly NFS:MW at full settings looked AND played a ton better- and really, that's in full daylight and should be a harder impact on the system. I'm on a gig of ram, FX-55, and a 7800GTX and honestly expected it to at least match up to the level that NFS:MW held. Sigh...

Upon further play, its not bad. It has the police pursuits that I liked in MW, and the drifting that most review sites are bashing on isn't as horrible as I expected. The most annoying part I've found is the sound of your cars wheels. I dunno about the demo, but it seems in the real game that anytime I have a side arrow pressed, you hear tire squeals. It doesn't matter how softly you turn, you get squealing. So when you're driving around town it gets on my nerves...

Same. I don't know WHY I got it after the demo...I guess I'm just a dumb loyalist.

Well, its A LOT better than the demo, but not up to NFS:MW. This applies on all fronts: graphics, gameplay, etc. So far the story line isn't bad, especially with the tie in with the earlier games.

Not a masterpiece, but much more polished than the demo. The internal version is 1.2, so maybe the knew the demo was crap.

I'm not sure what the deal is with that. On some tracks, the cars handle fine, like you'd expect and on others, it's very slippery. Maybe it's the drifting tracks where everything is really slippery. I'm not sure since I've only been doing the quick-races so far.

There wasn't anything wrong with them in the first place, really. I think the demo cars were just crap, actually. You can completely customize the way your car handles.. tires, suspension, brakes.. ect. Feels fine to me, depending on the car I'm using.

Heh, doesn't seem like ice to me. Mess around with different cars/configurations is all I can say, if you even have the full game. All you've done is bitch about it, so I assume you don't.

Funny, my uncle has a 911 as well.
