    Is it much different from the press demo we saw earlier?
    Tough on mirrors, tough on the causes of mirrors.

    dang

    There is no simulation mode in it apparently (I dont know for definate, im at work at the mo, only saying what I've heard)

    Its still only the Lister and Morgan around Spa, although you now have a full race weekend to master against a field of up to 19 AI cars.

    down sides:
    1. You have to use either Professional or Arcade (hell no) modes. Professional isnt greatly different to sim apparently, just slightly different tyre model with a bit more grip.
    2. The opposition cars are all running off the same AI process, meaning they're a bit thicker than they should be in the full version. This is down to the fact that each car has its own AI routine, and as there is only two cars, duplicated x amount of times to make up the field.

    upside:
    1. The new physics engine
    2. A new hotlap competition

    It's not a great demo. It's only got semi pro and arcade mode in it, no new cars or tracks. It does have the new physics engine, but without full sim mode how are you supposed to judge the improvement over the last demo?

    It has some basic AI in it as well, 19 cars but all controlled by one AI process instead of one per car. Not really very good if you ask me.

    Full game should be better
