this game is fun and unless you hate it, it will consume many hours of your life. the game has alot of good ideas it just needs some fine tuning, for example the TDU servers are unavailable about 30% of the time. and you can put your cars up for sale on x'live or at least you're supposed to be able to however due to technical difficulties that function, as of 9/12/06 is currently unavailable.
there is however hours and hours and days worth of roads to drive and good visuals. its fun and worth renting and if the online play is fixed, and it better be for 7.99, a month worth a buy if driving/racing games are your forte.
