I got this game a little while after the initial release. I was determined NOT to pay the full asking price on Steam and because I am a bit old skool I prefer physical media anyway. For measly £16 I get the DVD version. Installs with little issue. I must say I do find the UBISOFT DRM very annoying. You MUST have an internet connection live to install the game. Also the game searches for updates every time you run it which is also irritating. However, these issues to one side what you get is a nicely put together game. A good story line that makes you feel you are taking part in a film rather than just a game. The game isn't without flaws, the cars as mentioned in reviews I've read are indeed handbrake heavy but they are not overly twitchy like they are in some games which would make them frustrating to control. Car handling and crash damage isn't terribly realistic but it doesn't detract from the game. Driving around is a pleasure and the missions are challenging to maintain your interest. The cars are cool and there is a nice little easter egg in the game when you drive the Delorian for the first time. :-) Take a guess. The game characters are not in anyway annoying which makes a refreshing change. The concept of shifting from one vehicle to another is a unique and nicely intergrated feature of the game. This game isn't a simulator, it is more of an arcade game but it is really nicely put together and good fun! Certainly worth a look. :-)
