I will post this on the actual game board as well, but it seems pretty dead.
Has anyone here bought the game or downloaded it from the ps store? Is there a difference between the two versions?
The reason I ask is that I seem to suck at my PS store downloaded version, but I'm surprisingly good on the (I assume disc) version I played in a shop.
At home, I was quite good to start with, but soon found myself unable to place anywhere in the 3000cc races, without a lot of replays. The other drivers seemed to just be going faster and I would just get demolished by constant weapon attacks
In HMV today, my wife had a go on a 3000cc course she'd never tried before, and despite doing donuts off the track for a few seconds, she still came first by about 30 seconds.
I had a try on the Belgium course, which was causing me problems at home, and not only did I win, but I finished over a minute ahead of 2nd place and I lapped three people!
I just had a quick go when I got home, and I managed a first place on my third attempt, and only by three seconds.
Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong, or is there actually a difference between the two versions?
I played a 3000cc race on Belgium in single race. I got a turbo start and instantly overtook the whole competition, and with using the locked shortcut, I lapped everybody and finished 1 minute and 30 seconds ahead of second place.
On my downloaded version, everyone else does a turbo start so there's no way I could overtake them like that. In a 3000cc race I would be barely keeping up with the competition. I got a similar lap time to my normal laps, but there's no way I could have lapped them all like that!
