Worth buying in spite of disappointing visuals that fall short of promo media.

This game is definitely worth buying and a big step up visually and mechanically from current gen console racers, but you are in for a big disappointment if you expect this game to look anywhere near as good as it does in the dozens of stills and movies circulating the web. It's really kind of sad that marketing department was apparently forced to pass off cutscene video and retouched gameplay footage as the game itself (or at least in some part representative thereof) in order to bait the masses into entering a financial comittment in advance, thus catering to Microsoft's fear that word of mouth will rain on the lauch day party.

Why create so much hype in the first place? Just make a better looking game on a more powerful system and leave it at that. No need to false advertise.
