Did he like it?
post #7 of 28
He liked it, but he brought up every point I have about the game in the 2 hours I played it. The mission pace at the start is dumb, handbraking in the games makes you plop like you are learning to drive and the poplar trees break the car in two. Oh, and coming back to LC sucked.

Apart from that, best game -ever-

You know at first I hated the way the handbrake worked in this game, but after a while I realized that it's just behaving more realistically. It took a while of driving around to get used to it but now I'm a pro.
