Oh, I was actually disagreeing with him. Easy is just way too easy, while medium is just easy. And then there's hard, which is just f---ing impossible.

No mention of Shift?

Same. But comparing them in their respective genre, among those more popular games you mentioned I'd say it'd look something like this:

1. Real Racing 2
2. GT Racing: Motor Academy
NR. Need for Speed: Shift

1. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
2. Asphalt 6
3. Need for Speed Underground
4. Asphalt 5
5. Older titles

I must say I don't think Medium without any assists is very easy. Its giving me a rather difficult time.

I am having a really hard time with the Nissan GT-R Shootout.

Although I won't know until later whether the 1.01 update has fixed the audio bug, it did seem to fix the in-game leaderboard display so that the entries are no longer disordered, and so that the correct vehicle type is indicated beside each. Just a little more play later when I get home to make sure nothing else was broken, and then I'll leave the 5-star iTunes reviewlet.

edit:

The Pacemaker achievement finally unlocked after I went through the time trials in sequence, beginning with McKinley Circuit and ending on Balladonia. No audio glitches or freezing occurred, even after playing for more than an hour straight. I'm not sure whether it was required, but for reference I did each track several times in a row until beating my previous time, even if only by a fraction of a second.

Medium with no assists definitely starts to rear its head by the final championships, when you're still trying to get 1st place on a 4- or 5-lap race against the most aggressive NPC's such as T.Magnusson (the first reason I lowered the difficulty to medium after failing the Mustang GT (Montclair) head-to-head face-off)).

I wanted to fact check the claim about the missing Volvo textures being for cracked copies only.

Sure enough the main release (by most_unique) is missing all but one exterior texture for that Volvo.

It seems suspicious. I wonder if it was intentional by most_unique, modified and distributed early by someone at Firemint, or purely fluke.

It smells of a too-obvious attempt at tracking "pirates".
