    Demo is out, full game end of month.

    I have to admit, I'm impressed! And that's coming from someone that vastly prefers my sim racing on the PC but I do enjoy a racing game with character as a change of pace. I liked the first Horizon but this is taking it to another level by quite a bit - this game truly looks "next gen".
    I'm older than dirt, this demo reminds me of my first PlayStation and Ridge Racer (not as arcade as RR) in some ways - maybe the race with the jet fly-overs which at first I thought was just a silly gimmick but graphically and sound wise pretty cool.
    Haven't switched my wheel/pedals over so just played with a gamepad, and may stick with a gamepad for this type of game. The cars handle very well, better than the first. Beautiful game, wonder what the full release will bring.

    As I said, a change of pace, some less serious fun.
