Looks like Tokyo is the city.  As for the cars, I dont remember them.  There was something like 6 you can choose from.  I know a Mercedes and Ferrari were in there, but I dont know the models.

cool...the Tokyo tracks tend to be a little more difficult in my opinion, but they definitly have flashy graphics.  i think would have chosen one of the NY tracks though...some views of the skyline when you're crossing the Brooklyn bridge are just awesome Cool

I loved the first games, but for some reason the demo didn't grab me.  Maybe it's because Need4Speed:MW has turned out to be the most fun I've had with a racing title since the Burnout series, but PGR3 just seemed like PGR2 with a faster starting selection of cars and upgraded visuals.

For those that have both PGR3 and Need4Speed, which one do you prefer?

Dimmona -

I feel the same way about this version of PGR. I couldn't wait for it and now I just can't get into it like the last 2. I think I miss the 'real' cars.

I also have NFS but haven't opened it yet...I will now!!

Thanks!

NFS all the way. It is a much more engaging game. PGR3 is vanilla.

i have NFS:MW for PC and PGR3, and it's honestly a tough comparison in my mind...they're two extremely different games.  NFS is definitely a more thrilling, adrenaline-pumping experience, while PGR3 is less exciting but more of a precision/skill game.  i enjoy the challenge of PGR3, but it's also a heck of a lot of fun to run from (and destroy) the cops in NFS without any concern for your own car.  i guess the better game really depends on your own tastes...both are good racers, but they're clearly aimed at different crowds.

for what it's worth, i never owned an xbox and didn't play the previous PGR games, so it's more of a fresh experience for me than some of the veterans here.  i could see where someone who's played a lot of PGR in the past might get bored with PGR3...i don't think it really offers much of anything new or special compared to previous releases.

Agreed.  I have both and play them equally.

I personally don't think NFS is a racing game.  Sure it has cars and you drive them, but I think of it as an action game and PGR3 as a racer.  Since 90 percent of NFS is just keeping your foot on the accelerator and throwing caution to the wind it, to me, is all about action action action.  You drive like a maniac and tear half the town up and actually get points for doing it.  To me that is an action game.  While PGR3 is all about finesse driving involving expertly taken corners, braking, and drifting.  That is driving.  

So, if you want action, get NFS.  If you want to test your mettle as a AAA driver, then get PGR3.   I like both, but since I am not interested in the online piece I have gotten out of PGR3 all I am gonna and am ready to try out NFS more.  I like the demo and think I would dig the game.

Well let me ask this then for those who have played PGR2 in addition to PGR3 - are there any new gameplay differences?  The demo was too short to really see what changes (if any) there are, but it felt almost identical to PGR2.  The kudos even felt fairly similar.... can you still get 90k kudos on a map by fishtailing the whole way?

To me PGR3 is PGR2 with shinier cars.  That's all.  Oh, and there are no low end cars.

...and you can use the same car through the entire game, there are classes but no class restrictions on any of the single player races. I played the entire single player with two cars... there's not really much reason to buy other cars except for achievements and just filling garages since you have basically unlimited money and can buy the most expensive car in the game VERY early on.

Gameplay-wise it is pretty much the same, there are a couple of new race types like one solo timed race where you need to earn kudos to extend the timer. Nothing really groundbreaking.

This may be more about racing games in general but is there ever anything really new besides different cars and tracks?  I supose you could have more realistic modeling but there just doesn't seem to be much else to improve.

Farley - You're right, but could probably say that about any genre.

While most are somewhat the same, others just stand out.
