Played it for 5 hours when I got home last night, and its marvelous, I was actually squealing with Glee at one point, my wife came in to laugh at me.
I bought a Cappuccino as my first car, as I drive one in real life, and the interior is so detailed that they even have the roof release catch between the seats
I won my first race, in the Sunday cup, which was nice !
After a few tries won the other Sunday Cup races, and won a car, then did the National-B license tests, along the way I picked up a free Kart, so played the Karting in special events, the 'two-stroke' smoke out of the exhausts is great.
Played the first two tests in "Jeff Gordon's NASCAR challenge", both were drafting at daytona, the NASCAR cars are beasts, I passed Juan-Pablo Montoya ! (Paging OLB) !
Tried the beginers level of the AMG drivers course, these are on the full Nurburgring in an old Mercedes, there are 6 tests, and the 6th is a full lap in a specific time, shades of one of the license tests from GT4, I expect that will be tough.
Can't wait to take this bad boy on the 'ring
When you unlock the TopGear test track, the first race on it, is between 12 of those, I was laughing out loud, its like the worlds slowest race
and the interior view has three rows of seats, and the little windows in the roof
I picked up various 'prizes' for unlocking various things, like museum tokens, horn vouchers, and paint colours, not sure what they are all for yet.
Just before I went to bed, I installed the patch, it was trying to connect to the online servers, but failing, I guess as it wasn't the 24th yet
But when I turned off the wireless, it played perfectly without the online sections, so Sony having Launch server troubles won't stop you playing. (If they do).
I REALLY want a wheel now, my Cappuccino handles so realisticly, I can feel the limitations of the controller, I hope Santa is kind to me.
Eight more hours at work, till I can be home playing
