Good question. But since this is a region-free PS3 game...?

*Found it

Apparently it's a good solid grade C game.

Hehehe. I don't know when grade C was ever worth immediate release purchase. But whatever, knock yourself out!

Cant be worse than Grid - so may be worth a look.

*edit* - Just had a quick peak at teh game. It seems like Forza2 for teh PS3 without damage or tyre wear.

If these guys did not license the Forza2 engine, then I expect lawsuits because the look, feel and overall impression if of Forza2.

Yes I picked it up - I totally forgot I pre-orderd it. The store ran out of the "free download" certificates so I didnt get my F575.

The damage is cosmetic only.

The game is ok - looks like Forza2 with F-Cars only. In typical "rush to market" fashion, the game is not finished.

Replays have no save featur, so far I have found no way to name my "Player" - so the driver standings are "PLAYER" while the other teams all have names.

All in all a must have for Ferrari fans, bu only so-so.

I just played with controller, and did nto bother to haul out the seat and wheel - so who knows, it may get to be more fum yet.

The AI is pretty good, but they are driving cement trucks - they hold their station even if you try push them - but overall they are pretty savvy at not running you down.

I want to get the game only for the ability to drive the older cars. But I am kinda bummed reading the reviews here and on fchat. Looks like a lot of people are not too jazzed about the game. Fuckers took so long to release it - I was expecting something great.

Well I broke down and got myself a PS2 & the Ferrari game. The PS3 was a breeze to set up.

I struggled to play with the wireless controller and am now trying to get my Logitech G25 wheel set up for the game. The wheel is fine. Its just that I am struggling to position the pedal box to prevent it from moving on the carpet.
