The title says it all. I saw the game at the dealership today. It looks like it could be either a hoot, or a complete disappointment.

Re: Anyone buy the Volvo X-Box video game featuring the S60R"? (RainyS60R)

That sounds pretty interesting; I wonder if it comes in a PS2 version?

You mean the "Volvo Drive for Life" x-box game? It is fun... for about 10 minutes. There is very limited content.

Here's a little video I made last winter of it playing on the xbox in my S60...

The label says "Only on XBox"


Haven't played mine, no XBox here. It has three cars though, XC90, S40 and S60R.

I have it. It's pretty dull as far as games go, but it sure is a great Volvo collectors item. If you have a video system in your car, just let the game play it's video's on loop t car shows. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Get Forza Motorsport for XBOX instead - it has an S60R (highly moddable) plus the AtSpeed S60R GT car. Oh and the Nurburgring
And some other tracks, but the Nurburgring is all you really need

Re: Anyone buy the Volvo X-Box video game featuring the S60R"? (Warpedcow)

Where? I don't spend much time with video games but I did play Forza with my son last week to try the R (which was lame in stock form.) I didn't see an option for the AtSpeed version or how to modify a stock R. Please tell me this isn't one of those things where you have to play for a gazillion hours before you can uplock these options?

Unfortunately, the car shows its weight in that game jsut as it does in real life.


However, I still own one in the game as well as real life. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

To mod, you need to get in to career mode, then play a bit to unlock the S60R in that mode. Then you spend some money from the career mode on mods. Once you have that done, you can use the modded car in any mode. It doesn't really take all that much time to get that far, besides its a hella fun game and well worth the effort. There are so many great cars and tracks in the game, it's great fun!

The S60R in Forza is no lamer than the real car - try it out on the 1/4 mile strip, you'll find it gets a very realistic time of about 14.0 and 100MPH.

Yeah, better to support Sony which is the MSFT of the gaming console industry.

Ummm, duh, MS loses money on the hardware, so if you buy a 360 and Forza (and no other games!), you're screwing MS for at least $300!

You can get the XBOX Volvo For Life game here for a reasonable price:
