I agree Apex looks great but I'm renting 1st....i hear its like RR and that scares me.

Midnight Club II should also be good....but right now i've got my eyes on Pro Race Driver

What's RR?

Blah.. I am really looking forward to Apex.. but something that bothers me I found on Gamers.com..

Making a game that allows players to manufacture and race their own cars can be risky. While it's a cool idea, a lot of videogame racing junkies won't look at a title that doesn't feature licensed cars from the likes of Ford, Toyota, or Mitsubishi. So, Milestone went the extra mile and created a game that should please all racing fans. Apex is an addictive driving game that's unique but not so high-concept as to scare away the masses. Basically, all you have to worry about is finishing well in each race, and your car company will more or less take care of itself. It's kind of fun to watch your headquarters expand from a grimy garage to a massive factory, but the real entertainment begins when you get your cars out on the track. Apex is fast, pretty, and controls almost perfectly. The balanced opponent A.I. won't let you lap the field, but you also won't suffer from any surprising bursts of speed from the second-place car. I have only one major gripe--there's no way to win a shoving match. If another car touches you anywhere, it'll always pass you. It's an annoying, but not fatal,
