Looks like someone is jealous that they didn't get the "FiRST!" quest.

@GoodAssLettuce:

hate seeing people just type first its ridiculous!

Sounds great. I really enjoyed the Beta, can't wait to have more tracks.

Can't shake the feeling this game is Need for Speed + Mario Kart. Not a bad thing, but will wait to see how it handles.
Posted by piderman

The multiplayer beta was a lot of fun, but realistic? Erm no.

Go team Liverpool!

Awesome looking game

interesting

On the fence about this one, I'll wait and see what they do with it post release and if a solid community stays with it.

Oh man, the way that guy said "It's based on a Land Rover" cracked me up.

Posted by MayorFeedback

I've spent so much time in the beta, I can safely say this is a day one purchase. Not sure why they're trying to sell the whole realism thing, though. Just let Blur be Blur, guys. It's about blowing up the car in front of you with plasma balls and whatever else. That's a good thing.

I enjoyed the Beta....maybe not enough to pick it up at release though?!?!?

Posted by Brackynews

The beta has been loads of fun. I hope the single player has something compelling.  Only thing that really stands out for tweaking is it's nearly impossible to catch or be caught if you're in 1st and out of visible range. The "blue shells" don't do much to reduce the lead, though it's fun when people start spamming you with lightning to dodge.

Definitely on my must buy list. Although, Amazon.ca is listing $70 as the pre-order price.  Which is patently ridiculous and should probably drop to $55 or so for critical mass. Again, I hope there's something compelling. 
It's no Burnout, but the next Ridge Racer better be incredible for me to give a damn about it.  blur 4 life.

That elevated interest in this game to be sure...

I hate that Activision is publishing this. I don't want to avoid a good racing game, but goddamn them.

Posted by Johnny2900

looks good, but can it beat grid?
Posted by MrSparkle79

 
Well, listening to the people who made the game it surely seems like the best racing game ever. Does look nice, hopefully it'll deliver.

Posted by darkjester74

Just the other day started playing the beta....FRIGHTENINGLY addicting.  Had to tear myself away so I could hook up with  my body and play SC:C.  Holy crap, if I let this game get its claws into me its all over for me.

Do we have a concept page for that yet?  =\

Urge to kart, rising....

Hmmm, the girl was pretty cute ...

Posted by lasborg

Looks great

Posted by themartyr

The beta is really great. I found it to be good example of how a game demo can take you from casual interest in a new title, to really looking forward to picking it up. 
As previously mentioned, it is addicting as hell, too.

Posted by Sporkbane

Dude they have the bowler? That's the first racing game I've seen with it! That car is siiiiiick.
 
Also, Ford Transit van with F1 Engine. More of this please.

Posted by Milkman

That van was pretty sweet.

what i got from this video.... "we got cars" .... ok cool. bye.

Posted by Gizmo

Wait, there's a race track based on Hackney?
 
Dude, I used to live in Hackney! It'll be interesting to see what part of Hackney is in the game, and if it is realistically mapped.

Posted by Alcamin

Not sure how technically good this is going to be but it looks like a blast! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this one and seeing what's what.

Posted by HeavyMental

shells ?

Posted by Cheapoz

They handle realistically?

Posted by DystopiaX
@Cheapoz: have you played it? it's not on the Forza level but it's not cartoonish either.
Posted by MarkWahlberg

I'm more of a 'smooth culture' man, myself, so this should be good.

Posted by clarke0

This game looks real, real nice. The van is awesome.

Posted by Trnck

This looks really awesome, but I can't convince myself in playing a game with this much power-ups...

Posted by RobbieMac

The demo is an absolute blast!  I cannot wait for retail version.

Posted by aproposshadows

Played the beta not sure if I want it though. Gotta try the split second demo next to see which too get 

Posted by HODGEY3000

is this on PS3? 
Posted by ammahoela
@HODGEY3000: no
Posted by masterpaperlink

demo was surprisingly fun, but ill wait and see if split second is any better

Posted by drumpsycho89
@masterpaperlink:  yeh i think from what i have seen split second may have the edge over this but i gess we shall see soon enough.
