I like it a lot, V. In response to it being extremely overhyped; Well yes, I think any game that is hyped that big is going to fall short of those extreme expectations.
After 6 years of development I'm sure there's a list of things people could say the game is lacking. I personally didn't sit on my ass waiting in anticipation for the game to be released. So overall, I find it satisfying.
The graphics are outstanding. The car selection is great. This game is most likely the closest I'll come to driving an R8 V-10 around Nurburgring
Haven't tried it online yet. Will get to that sooner or later.
So SUCK ON THAT!
