Has anyone downloaded this yet? I wondered if it had local multiplayer in the demo.

One car, one course, SP only, unfortunately.

actually now I come to think about it, I don't recall reading about a local multiplayer mode at all.

It's alright as it happens, but a clear cut case of a game I've been wanting a console version of for YEARS actually not being that great once you take off the rose coloured specs. Sort of game that purely only works if you're in an arcade, pissed, and it's a local 2 player cabinet job.

Please - no one do a conversion of Scud Racer for similar reasons

Can't believe this game is 12 years old now.... well, maybe I can, looking at it. Don't know how low the price of this would have to be for me to be interested, if they've replaced the Bugatti EB110 with a Bugatti Veyron I might be tempted. Seems unlikely though.

Played this at the Eurogamer Expo. I can confirm that it is utter trash. It was kinda weird that Eurogamer decided to set up about 8 pods for such a below par game.

:/

I don't think it's utter trash, I just think it's a game "uncomfortably out of its own time bracket" really. It's like if someone really really did re-do Elite and put it out for XBLA, people would play it for about a week and go "Hmm, it's aged badly"

Stuff like GTi Club really doesn't port well to home unless they do a severe re-working of it to extend the appeal and the thing's lifespan. It's difficult to tell from the demo whether you get more tracks and stuff (around the Cote D'azur) but as it stands, it's merely a highly polished and rather dull direct port of something that only really worked as a twin-player arcade cab anyway.

Oh if only they'd released a handbrake peripheral :)

local multiplayer would have made this worthwhile imo.

Races take no skill to win. My friend came first by holding the accelerator button for the whole race. If kinder eggs had games instead of shitty toys inside them, it would be this.

Couldn't agree more on the local multiplayer thing. 4 player split screen would've been superb.
