Blur Multiplayer Demo

Demos are  a wonderful thing.  
 
I would have never even thought about playing Blur at all. But when finishing up the Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops left us with the need for something to play, this has filled the void. And it's not even the full game.  
 
The types of races, the weapons and the absolute mayhem of the 20 people events is a blast. Top it all off by a leveling up system of fans (XP) that opens new race types, cars and mods and you have a good package that makes you feel like you are always accomplishing something, even when you get blasted and end up in last place.  
 
The only gripe I have against it is the lobby system. It seems crazy that in a world where the party system exists that developers would choose anything else. When a connection problem happens (it is a beta after all) and I get bumped away from my party mates, it's a cumbersome routine to get back together. If we could move from game to game as a party with a leader (much like the halo) I could go to a different race type, and have them follow me.  
 
Hopefully this is something being talked about on the beta forum and might be addressed. 
 
Aside from that, I look forward to the game. This demo has probably secured my 70 bucks, and at least a couple others on my friends list. It would be great to see this more often.
