  1. YAY! The online didn’t work at all for me and in multiplayer locally there was real frame rate problems as it tried to render all the cars on screen 2/3 times over. It’s a great game and this can only make it better!

    • I wondered if it was just me who could never get a game online,this provided the answer for me.
