Yeah, you get a fair bit more money from finishing higher up the field, you're probably barely covering your repairs if you finish quite low. Could be worth playing offline for a bit and winning some races against the AI for easier moneys, but yeah, it's definitely mainly challenges where the money's at. Things like completing class-E races or coming in the top three, etc, which you can complete online.

Cheers for the races, guys. Really enjoyed it. Sorry I had to run off there but my girlfriend returned home and pointed out that there was water pouring down from the dining room ceiling because I'd left the bathroom tap running and overflow pipe has a blockage. Whoops.

Just bought this on the strength of the posts in here. But fucking wow, its glorious. I've paid full on XBLA points for games that aren't even half as good as (or as polished) as this.

Only done about an hour in single player career mode (felt more like 10 minutes) but I'm hooked. Gonna have a go at some online now but looking at the time, I might be a bit lonely.

Got lots of room on my friends list if anyone wants to add multiClunk for future events. Small m capital C.

I was having some issues as well. Kept getting kicked out of the lobby, restarted my 360 a few times and got a black screen which I couldn't even quit to dash from. Might be the update or could LRS

I forgot about this, I was due to play Borderlands with some people but it cancelled and I could've been on here instead! Bah. Anyway, after the update I also got that black screen thing when trying to start up Borderlands (had to power off), so it's not LRS specific whatever it was.

I got a bit of slowdown playing it...and then it got worse on another track and slowed the box right up.
Proper chugging and I turned off the box in fear that it was going to break - bios hock did the same to my first box.

I won't be playing this until there's an update/similar just in case. Sounds like a box killer :(

had slow down for a few mintues but was only with LRS didnt effect either MGS HD or FFXIII2 and certainly didn't seem to kick up the problems everyone else seems to be having.

Anything on the games official forums regarding the matter?

No your right this is an XBLIG, i think with a smidge more polish this could have been the next Trials if it had XBLA. But saying that i like the whole "underground hit" status of it, and it's titles like this that show how much talent is in XBLIG!

Just bought the last car I needed, so I now have every car in the game and all the challenges are done, and I'm still playing!

Racing stuff....


Thought I recognised the gamertag! Came on to post about the races I just had, this game is great.

I did have a total mare though, I sold the only car I had and had saved just enough to buy the Class C car I wanted, and then when I went to do a race there weren't any C class races listed and there were no online games running in class C either, so I was stuck with no way to make any money so I had to sell that car for half what I paid for it and go buy a Class D one and earn some cash again :(

All good now though, have cars for classes E, D, C and B.

The AI really puts up a good fight in this doesn't it, I've had some great battles both online and offline.

You could have hosted your own class-C race, surely?

Yeah, there's not that many people playing though, I left it on for ages and no one joined, I figured it was just easier to sell the car.

I downloaded this today and started on the single player. I thought it was excellent considering the price. But disappointed you can't play it unless connected to live. My connection is flaky, which means I keep getting booted back to the title screen and sometimes dash mid-race. I had it lock up on me a few times too. Not sure if that's related. At the moment, as a result, I can't really be bothered to play it. Too much hassle if I get kicked out of every second race.

I've not had it lock up. Unfortunately, the mandatory Live connection isn't anything to do with the game - it's the case for all Indie games on XBL (you may already know that).

Aye, it annoys me I can't play any downloadable games if my internet goes down (thanks, Virgin Media). I know they're doing it for piracy reasons but come on, surely they have the nous to sort this. I mean, I can play my Steam games offline fine.

Add me up, I downloaded this on Saturday, only had a brief run around but it looked good. Did make me a bit worried for that new one by the chaps that made Wrecked as it's generally quite similar.

If there's a game happening this Thursday evening like last week, I'm there. Although I'm half tempted to restart my career to take advantage of the driver count update to 300.

If people want to do this Thursday then I'll update the OP.

The game update isn't happening this week now due to a bug, therefore can people try to make sure they have Class E and Class D cars so that they can join in.

C and B class too bitte! It may be carnage , but there are still tactics to it. I was playing a b class race last night and held back a bit to let the guy damage his car from trying to desperately stay ahead. Sure enough he slowed his car right down through damage and I just sailed past in the last 2 laps of 25. Endurance like this for about 100 laps would be amazing. Best Scalextric simulator ever!

Picked this up off the recommendation of smithstock. Cracking bit of fun. Be up for some 12 player carnage. If you are not beeping your horn when you cross the finish line then your position doesn't count.

Skimmed the thread and don't know if anyone's mentioned this yet but I emailed the makers about the slowdown/freezing this morning and they replied practically immediately with...

As far as we know, the issue is related with P2P Lap times sharing. There's an option in the game settings to disable it. Pleasy try turning it off and see how it goes.


Anyway, bought this yesterday and loved it straight away. Would be up for some multiplayer sometime definitely, but can't do this thurs.

Also, agree with whoever said the AI was great. They're aggressive and make very human errors sometimes. Top stuff.
