Is anyone getting this for the XBox 360? I'm getting it for the PC now, apparently it needs a beast of a PC to run smoothly so I'm probably not going to be playing it at it's best which is a shame because it looks so pretty.

Well depends what you like, Forza is more of a simulation wheras Colin McRae fits into the fun category like the NFS games.

Lee if it's good let me know. I currently have PGR3 for the Xbox and I'm not too keen on it. I don't like racing games where the tracks are 'walled off'. I prefer touring games like the TOCA's.

Well from what everyone's been saying it's really good fun and the new driving mechanics are great.

Just played it, on lowest graphics settings, it's great fun especially the rallycross where you can ram your opponents off the track. :D Even on the lowest settings it still looks pretty, might see if I can bump the graphics up a bit though.

Just checked and the game takes up 10.5GB once installed. Shame I need to keep the 8GB cd image though. :(

i decided to go for this game rather than forza, and i think i can safely say i made the right decision.

Can't you just create a mini image instead? They only take up around 500kb-1mb.

Not too sure because the protection on the CD is pretty fussy. I'll give it a try though.

Oh after a about 3 hours of total racing now I still suck at Rally's but rock at everything else. Driving trucks sucks. :(
