Superstars V8 Racing
Superstars V8 Racing demo now on Marketplace
Written By

Black Bean Games has released a demo of Superstars V8 Racing on Xbox Live Marketplace. Players can pick from all 19 drivers included in the full game and race on the relatively new Portimao circuit in southern Portugal - surprising for a download of just 258MB. 

The game is based on the Italian racing series of the same name and comes from Milestone, a developer better known for games like SBK 09 and MotoGP 08. It's due for release in Europe at the end of this month.

Add the demo to your Xbox 360 download queue at (Xbox Live Gold exclusive for now)

Never heard of it. Still, may as well give the demo a go.

I have to say I'm very impressed with it. The visuals are blurred and bloomed to hell, but the presentation is still good. The car models are fine and the track in the demo looks pretty detailed.

The racing is awesome though - it's in that sweet spot between a full on sim and the sort of thing you get from GRID and thats where I love all of my driving games to be.

Plus, the Portimao circuit is a personal favourite of mine. Can't wait for this one!

doesnt actually play that bad as fishfingers said it gets blurry but they are still next-gen graphics, the damage or lack there of is disappointing, only one of your bumper comes off, and the track detail looks good... its promising

The original V8 Supercar games for Xbox were really fun.

This is Superstars V8 Racing - nothing to do with the Australian V8 Supercar series.

The lack of license for half the car models and the lack of any cockpit view is a MASSIVE let down.

That said, its not a bad arcade racer, its a bit niche though, might be worth a rent, or a buy when it hits the bargain bin.
