You will find yourself driving different cars JUST for the engines and transmission notes. BMW V12'sa re spine tingling, US V8's are stomach rumbling, Porsche flat 6's just sound right - and German V10's are amazing.

They got the sounds right. Well fucking done - about bloody time.
Just what i needed to know! Thanks RC!

I had decided to buy PS3 just to play GT5, now i will definetly check this out.

That sounds great!

Now when you say BMW V12... I'm going to assume that there's a McLaren F1? Yes? Please let it be a yes!

I got this one for PC and after getting my steering wheel setup right this is easily the best NFS ever. Physics are really good and the sound is even better! I am going to enjoy this one for a long time!

Yep, PC version.
The PS3 sits and collects dust in the living room. Which is kind of a drag, since the PS3 is hooked up to a 61" HD. One which I barely watch anyway, since I am always in the computer room.

Playing games on a 26" computer monitor, at a res of 1900x1200, isn't too bad though.

I'll be getting Forza 3 and GT5 for some console action.

Unlike you guys I love PGR and Grid. The sims are great too (Forza and GT). This game doesnt look very good. Ill wait for the demo

lol I hate the drifting events in Grid and I hear the drifting events are particularly frustrating in NFS Shift because the physics are so odd. Though I admit im so glad they improved the powersliding in dirt 2
