:) wow I cranked up the demo last night on my PC and TBH that game so rocks even my girlfriend said she'd give it a go. (a first)

The graphics are perfect and the game engine is excellent. It is so optimized that even at 30fps it runs very smooth unlike similar titles with high graphical content.

It very much feels like an arcade racer but with a refined polished edge to it.

Anyone else played it? I would like to see how it compares to the console versions, performance wise.

Hey jb,

I agree.
I have this Demo on PS3 - You can download it from the PS Network of course.

Gameplay is great.

The demo lets you race in a BMW, a Mustang and drift in a S15 Silvia.

It has the realism of Gran Turismo 5 but with the customisation of Need for Speed.

Im considering selling my copy of N4S: Pro Street to buy GRID. (Pm me if you want to buy it - LOL)

The drifting is super fun and so is the racing.

Heaps of features that make the game really fun too - like having your name spoken in the game narration and the ability to "rewind" if you crash.

720p (HD) on PS3 the graphics are amazing!!!
