Roughly last night, I looked over and saw this demo finishing on the 360.
I play the NFS series on both PC and 360, which means me and Need for Speed get along great. It plays relatively the same as Hot Pursuit, with a good bit of challenges, especially the 2nd part of the demo. It appears to be worth the purchase and the run from one side of the country to the next seems interesting. Definitely download this badboy on 360 or PS3 and look up LosEvolution on both consoles. I got some stats in these maps that will amaze you (or make you laugh).
