The new servers are awesome. "Demolition Racing" is exactly as it sounds, mostly figure 8's and the like, and you need a "strong" car. The "Realistic Racing" servers have realistic damage on... and I have yet to finish a race in one. Want to race exclusively on tarmac? There's a server for that.

They have improved multiplayer tenfold with this update IMO. The only way it could get better is to have public custom servers, which I doubt will ever happen (but I can hope).

The new update is pretty neat, you can make one heck of a strong car with the new cage and bumpers. The new wheels are also a little lighter (on most cars).

And custom public lobbies are here! The new cars don't trip my trigger, but the new track is pretty ridiculous.

Three new cars out right now.  An MR-2, a G10 van, and a Javelin.

My wife got it for me for Christmas and I love it.  I was previously running GT Sport a lot and recently bought a new desktop to run iRacing but this title is so much fun I always end up doing that instead.

I forgot about this game (or video games in general) for a couple of months, but just picked this up with the new updates and am loving it. Personally, I'm a big fan of how they blend a relatively arcade-y game with the menus and difficulty of something like forza. 

Finally passed the 3rd series, not sure what it's called, but I suspect the game is going to get much more difficult at this point.

I love this game. I have it on both the computer and Xbox. The kids love it to especially when they can utilize the steering wheel with it.

Interested. I have XBox One but no wheel.

It plays just fine with a controller. 

Artur: it does get more difficult, but a few updates ago they made it considerably easier. Some of the new tracks that aren't part of career are really challenging though.

Yesterday I poked around the internet casually looking at used PCs that might play this game.  I'm curious...haven't played any simulations in over a decade.  But I don't know that I'm "plunk for 5 bills on a PC" curious.  

My current hardware is a joke.  Apart from my work laptop (which is off limits for gaming, for obvious reasons) I have an i3 laptop, a sort-of server PC running Linux with some really basic processor, and a PC so old it's OS is...Windows 98.

I am guessing it would be a lot easier and cheaper just to get a PS4.  A used setup even cheaper.

Regarding this game and a wheel.  I find it far easier on a controller.  That may be because I use a G27 with an emulator box, but the wheel makes the game less enjoyable to me play for me (its doesnt come across as realistic at all) .

Picked it up Friday & played well into the night. Saturday, all the kids & wife played the figure 8 or mud demo derby and really enjoyed it. 6 year old daughter needs a wheel though. she doesn't really "get" steering with the stick and is rotating the entire controller like our riding mower wheel.

Any recommendations for a durable but relatively cheap wheel for the XBox One? I can troll marketplace, etc for used too.

New big update this past weekend for some new cars and updates on mode play. not looked into yet as i post this. watched a little bit on a video someone posted last night about it on youtube. check it out later but a the new cars look badass. The one is the big outlawed car in demo derb'ys, a 70s stang and a 80s chevy truck. Seems to be lots of Gm cars in the game over anything else which is weird.

The new Big Rig Reverse Course Smash Everything race is fun.

They added daily and weekly challenge races and such.  Let's you earn point which can be used to buy something, not sure.  A good way to keep the game interesting though.

Ahhhh...I fired it up for the first time in 2-3 months last weekend, and I was convinced it felt more predictable and easier to control.

Is this available in hard copy format, or DL only?

Definitely available hard copy- I almost bought it that way but it was easier to buy the deluxe and pre-load before release.

In reply to Mndsm :

Great, thanks.  I never bought GT Sport because my ancient wheel is not compatible with PS4 and Project CARS sucks on a controller.  This looks like it could be fun.

I wish Polyphony Digital would update Tourist Trophy.  That game played really nicely on a controller.

In reply to Duke :

Its a lot more fun than it should be. My biggest complaint is load times- even with a full console install it takes FOREVER to swap races, and it can get repetitive. But it's easily the best wrecking game i've ever played, and one of the better overall racing games.
