yeah I saw that in the OXM I got in Saturday's mail
I can see where they're coming from because I saw a lot of their negative comments right in the demo.
I don't have the mag with me but from what I remember their reasons were:
-not even an attempt at a background story, no time or location setting, at least they could have gone with the typical "post apocalyptic" thing.
-very dull and repetitive, no configurations of the cars what so ever, most of the cars drive the same and most of the guns shoot the same
-no points for anything like causing damage, the only motivation to cause damage is... there isn't any.
-no interesting game modes, the winner is he who comes in first place be it by driving or shooting, that's it, that's the whole game.
They did say that the graphics were good and that the reverse time feature was interesting but useless once you were halfway good at the game.
