I'll add you later. 

 

Just got got this off CDKeys (wish I'd ordered it a few days ago as it has gone up £2).

 

Only had a 10 minute blast of split screen with my little lad but he didn't want to switch off. Will give it another try later.

 

Have always enjoyed the TM games and still have my disc copy of one of the earlier ones somewhere.

My wife and I played the double driver mode for a couple of hours last night.  It was absolutely brilliant fun and we didn't get divorced. 

 

Feel free to add me on PSN for some leaderboard action; my tag is JollyNiceSoup.

It's the ghost chasing that makes this game, always has done... so @SnoopZakaDaVe I named this one, "by a fag paper!"

unlucky @bradigorTEMP you may wanna check that again 8-) beat it first time...

 

after about 50 retries. but it was my first time after those. i'm useless at getting the length of the clips right on this game, but it has the part the matters

not to worry straight back at ya. (actually put me up into top 100 in the world for that course!)

in all the time i've had this game i've only done about 20 tracks so far because the replayability is just too much, trying to improve times and beat people and nailing that perfect run is so addictive, which i guess is the point of the game but it's great fun.

 

also @VN1X for the first water part try and enter in the left hand side of the water it seems to be more shallow and not bog you down so much, i'll put a clip here if i managed to get a decent run, and if you're close at the start of the last lap and hit the water right the gold ghost gets slowed down alot on the last lap and you can pass there :D

not the greatest run but you can allow a good few mistakes and still get gold (starts at about 1:05ish after a fail)

Anyone with the PS4 version tried it on the Vita with remote play?

I didn't find it too bad on vita remote play, only tried it for a short stab though. Had issues on PStv, however, with issues seeming to stem from the ds3 sensitivity; the car was all over the place with the slightest input.

Do you have any control of the vehicle during the drop? I only ask as I've raced some ghosts and they get to the ground up to half a second before me.

 

Had loads of game crashes too but it could be cos I'm using my Steam controller having added Uplay as a non-steam game.

Yeah you can use the accelerator in the air, and indeed on the approach to jumps to make a big difference to your angle, speed and the way you come out of it when you land.  I must have had about 50 retries at the short track with the big jump through the bridge at the end of the first set of tracks (8 or 9?).  That's the one I nailed for a trackmaster.  I can get it better though.  I'm going to hammer it later, I want number one in the UK, not just Wales.  Gotta aim big!

 

It's the narrow, twisty tracks I really struggle with.

mostly this is brilliant but for the life of me why do they come up with a lovely flowing mud stadium track and then decide to just stick giant cats in the track that kill you dead, its a really weird design decision and a few of the tracks have these 'throwback' type track litter that just kills you.

 

split screen multi is a bit lacking too, it plays brilliantly but you just keep repeating the same track unless you quit out and choose another, needs a Trial style feature to add multiple tracks into a series you then race in sequence.

 

I'm also finding those off road beetle buggy style things a real handful too, I can slide like a boss in the stadium and daytona style cars but can't click with the buggies yet,

 

these are grips as the core game is fantastic

Bought this last night and struggled to put it down, ended up being a very late night. I don't have too many ghost replays to race against, so fellow PS4 players, please add me on PSN :)

Yeah, the beetle buggy handling is too twitchy for me and detracts from the courses I've played with them so far. I find it hard to get into a nice, smooth, flowing sequence using them...

Yeah, the issues I have with the game are pretty minor.

 

The handling is way twitchy at times, which can be incredibly annoying - I really haven't got the hang of buggies or lagoon yet.

 

Every so often it throws a bastard of a track at you - #49 was so frustrating.  Then it did #50 which is just glorious slidey brilliance.  The problem is that you need Golds on all tracks to unlock the later tracks in campaign mode.  I know you can use Jokers and all that, but just gimme the tracks as I complete the ones before it.   Even allow Bronze or something. Fucking around with something narrow and slippy - complete with unforgiving stop-dead barriers at the side is so annoying, especially when you know you can't progress.

 

Oh, and it would be nice to have a browsable list of times for each track - I'm sure TMN did this.

 

Aside from that - this glorious, all I hoped it would be, and everyone should buy it.

Someone tell me how to do #15. :(

It's been a couple of days since I did it now, but you want to hug left (iirc) of centre when going through the water - it's shallower there and wont slow you down. That will allow you take make an extra second or so on the gold time each lap.
