Releases Aug 15 on Steam. This one looks really good. Races, chicken-fights (gotta love the profanity filter, can't say ****-fights, nothing dirty about it, have to say chicken-fights rolleyes.gif), mahjong, kareoke. What else is there?cool.gif

I only hope the PC version is halfway decent.

This game certainly has the potential to be great fun. We'll see.

So I finished the game (at least the thematic part of it). The game has fantastic voice acting and a good script. Most fun I've had in a while. I highly recommend it.

It runs really well on the PC, definitely not a port, has a built in benchmark too.

Nice, I'll pick it up later when I'll have time to play it. I saw a review on TV and they gave it a 9/10. Good thing.

Only thing that bothered me were the vehicule's phyiscs that looked weird. Other than that, it looked good.

I'd give it a good 9/10 also. The City looks freaking amazing with the high rez texture pack installed. I've had a lot of fun with this game. Ran perfect on my PC too.
The driving is strange a bit at first but you'll come to like it when you're racing or trying to get away from the cops lol

^^^ Thanks for the tip. Dloading the pack now.

I just picked it up (digitally,Steam compatible) at Amazon for $23 after inputting the discount code OCTOFUN1. I've only played the opening scenes and am already hooked. It works fine with a DS3 pad, which I prefer for 3rd-person action games instead of a mouse.

One thing deserving a mention is that the 3D mode looks FANTASTIC on my 60" HDTV. It doesn't need any special hardware or a special monitor to do it either... it just works.
