This has been released on Xbox One now, in case anybody missed this. As part of the backwards compatibility game library.
Means if you've got the Xbox360 version it'll now work on XB1 (or at least trigger a download), or you can get it on the Xbox Store. It's nice to play it on a current-gen system even if the visual quality is obviously not as good as stuff like Forza 7. I'd forgotten how good a racing game this is. I love the crash physics too. Surely the best in any console racer. Was doing a BTCC type race at Brands earlier in a Civic, misjudged Paddock Hill Bend and hit the gravel sideways, my car flipped into the air and into the barriers cockpit first, I'd have been toast. It looked spectacular as hell on replay, it really did. You can't do that in Forza, Project CARS, Assetto Corsa......
I love the fact it concentrates on the core racing, I love the team-mate strategy element, I love the fact it does pretty decent 'approximations' of series like the BTCC, DTM, F3, LMP2, I love the fact it has tracks you won't find in other racers (Jarama, Mont Tremblant), its a bit of a gem.
