The 30fps version looks like absolute dream. Not been a driving fan since NFS Undersground but I'd give this a spin

Looks good. Although I'm not sure why DF thinks the Xbox One is gonna struggle with this game, nothing about it really screams next gen to me.

I think it does in some areas but not a lot either. I'll be holding final judgement until it's on screen in front of me.

That's kind of the problem. Playground smash it out of the park with each instalment, each time raising the bar.
