This game is seriously addictive, and a blast to play...

At first I didn't really like it, but the more I played and started to get the feel of how it works, like tapping x to take the corners right.. the more amazing it became...

Now I'm just hooked can wait for the game to arrive... having it show you your friends time is priceless... makes you want to take down their time.. nice touch..

being the cops is just too much fun... I'm actually loving the game now, and I'm sure word of mouth will put this one over the top...

I would not be surprised if it does something like 8 million in total from all systems when the dust settles...

Well Criterion sure knows how to make awesome racing games, so this should be pretty cool.
