1) Having to drive around to get to a race. I like going through a menu system... so much faster. It would have been nice if they gave you the option to either drive around or go through a menu to choose a race.
2) In Burnout you are always moving incredibly fast, dodging traffic and other road hazards. Adding in trying to figure out where to turn is not fun to me, and I usually end up missing a turn. I know they throw in some visual clues to help you know when to turn, but when I'm in the heat of racing I usually don't notice them. I prefer the standard race tracks with giant arrow signs and hidden short cuts.
Anyways, still a good game and a great price.
This might have just decided it for me. That's the exact two things that bugged me with the demo and ironically enough, B3:T was also my favorite.
I'll try my luck over at the Gameshare thread, but if I don't get through I'll just pass. Thanks for the bump though.
