As mentioned on the News page, Mad Tracks is coming to XBox Live Arcade this week.  I played the PC demo many moons ago and I think this could be a perfect fit for the Arcade.  My only hangup is that I've read that they pulled out most of the races for add-on packs. 

Even though this is a cheaper and totally different type of racing game, I can't help but think that it was poor planning to release it concurrent with Forza 2.

ugh. MT looks neat but I'll wait to see if they decide to charge for those before I buy it.

Well, from the press release:

For about half the price of the full game, players will be able to add additional races and mini-games to "Mad Tracks" by downloading the Bravo and/or Encore expansion packs. Each expansion pack includes an additional 15 nail-biting races and action-filled mini games for 350 Microsoft Points each, extending the fun and offering a great value.

I tried the demo and it played decently with the controller so I decided to just purchase it.

The thing to remember about this one is that you are controlling a little spring-driven car, so you can't just hold down the accelerator the whole time.  You have to strategically release it so it can recharge, like when you are going downhill or are in the air.  Otherwise you will really start to slow down and will get your butt kicked.

Played the first level on the demo and bought it.  I am a sucker for games where you race tiny cars across tracks populated by real life objects that are giant compared to your car's size.
