Nice. I'm actually looking forward to playing this one more than Reckless Racing. Midnight release in the UK for both games I think. Can't wait!

Having played both the games, I can easily recommend you getting both of these. Easily the best looking games in platforms and a lot of fun for their each respective genre.
