There's not anyone even on yet in the US to play a game with. Going through the practice mode, this is much smoother then Eliminate. Can't wait to see this in full action.

From what I can tell, it's for the full game. I don't see anywhere inside the game to buy anything. I also, still can't find anyone to have a match with.

I was on there for a bit, but it's almost 3:00 am in the US and the game just came out, so I doubt you'll find anyone yet.

BTW, no DLC. This thing is polished like glass. Well worth 2.99 (as long as they get players).

it's the full game, they could implement that credit scheme in future updates, but I really really really don't want them to. So far the game runs pretty smooth.
